Just like a fingerprint, your eyes are unique – each eye having its own individual characteristics.
At Optical Express, both our iLASIK and LASEK treatments may be enhanced with iDesign, revolutionary wavefront diagnostic technology that can detect even the most minute imperfections of your eye, allowing your surgeon to customise your treatment to the exact specification of your eyes.
iDesign captures over 1,200 micro readings of your eye prescription, five times more than previous wavefront technology.
To put this in context, for glasses and contact lenses only one reading is measured. Using advanced, high-definition, wavefront-guided technology to take a one-of-a-kind snapshot of your eye, iDesign collects five different measurements at the push of a button.
This 3-D image is a highly accurate ‘blueprint’ of your eye, detailing every minute characteristic, allowing your surgeon to generate a customised treatment plan, unique to you. This information is then transferred to the computer-guided laser to correct these imperfections, thus correcting your vision.
Not only does iDesign give us the ability to correct your eye prescription to a higher accuracy than your glasses and contact lenses resulting in better vision, but we can now treat more complex and higher prescriptions than ever before. Even those that have previously been told they are unsuitable for eye surgery.
