Advanced CustomVue Laser Correction

WaveScanThe STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System is designed to bring Advanced CustomVue laser vision correction to life. Using the STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System, surgeons can deliver the broadest range of wavefront-guided laser vision correction treatments to patients. In fact, more than 94 percent of eligible candidates in the U.S., and more than 99.75 percent outside the U.S., may potentially benefit from the Advanced CustomVue procedure.*

Greater refractive measurement precision
More detailed measurement information previously possible by standard methods for glasses and contact lenses
Distinct tailoring to achieve Personal Best Vision
As shown in clinical studies, can potentially produce better vision than is possible with glasses and contact lenses Superior visual outcomes can be produced with custom laser vision correction as compared to standard method
The digital information from the WaveScan System is transferred to the STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System which performs the Advanced CustomVue procedure

The Advanced CustomVue treatment is designed to correct the unique imperfections of each individual's eyes.

Additional Benefits

Reduces the impact of pupil centroid shift.
Compensates for cyclotorsional movement.
Eliminates the time needed for manual marking.
Accommodates all wavefront guided laser vision correction procedures.
Leverages multiple matching reference points for each iris.

Optimal results require precise alignment of the laser treatment. By linking diagnostic wavefront information with the treatment itself during the Advanced CustomVue procedure, IR provides a much higher level of alignment accuracy and precision, giving the surgeon confidence that the treatment will be placed in the correct location. During treatment delivery, IR:

Finds and unwraps the iris in preoperative and operative images.
Selects prominent reference points.
Applies a set of sophisticated algorithms to find multiple matching reference points for each iris.
Calculates the ablation torsional angle from multiple matching reference points, and adjusts the treatment positioning prior to ablation.
Automatically checks the solution quality to help prevent false matches.

Optimal Outcomes With Iris Registration (IR)

A patient's pupil center will move relative to the outer iris boundary in different environments. To minimize the impact of this movement, IR:

Records the outer iris boundary at the WaveScan and laser.
References the WaveScan pupil center to the outer iris boundary.
Records the pupil center relative to the outer iris boundary and compares it under the laser to the WaveScan reading.
Centers the laser ablation over the WaveScan pupil center.
