Refractive Technology

IntraLase iFS Femtosecond Laser

The first step in the LASIK procedure is creation of a small corneal flap before the STAR S4 IR laser is used to deliver your treatment. The IntraLase iFS laser eliminates the need for the traditional blades resulting in faster, safer, and more predictable flap creation.

iDesign Refractive Studio

iDesign Refractive Studio is the next level of personalization. Wavefront technology with integrated corneal mapping measures the entire optical pathway of the eye. More than 1,200 data points are used capture your eye’s unique variations with 25x more accuracy than conventional methods. iDesign Refractive Studio calculates and plans the ideal, truly personalized, laser treatment.

LenSx Femtosecond Laser

During cataract or refractive lens exchange surgery The LenSx laser system performs some of the more challenging and delicate steps of cataract surgery using a blade-free laser instead of manually performing these steps with an instrument. The superior precision of the LenSx laser gives a customizable surgical approach. Coupled with advanced technology intraocular lens implants (IOLs), LenSx laser cataract surgery gives patients the opportunity to achieve quality vision and reduce how much they depend on glasses.

ORA with VerifEye+

Before your cataract or refractive lens exchange surgery, the ORA™ system is used to predict if the chosen intraocular lens implant (IOL) will provide optimal results for you. Based on this information, Dr. Conlon can make adjustments to the chosen IOL as needed. The ORA system also provides real-time micro-measurements during cataract surgery. This guides Dr. Conlon during IOL placement, allowing him to make necessary adjustments. This leads to an optimal outcome, as your surgeon is able to verify mid-surgery that the correct strength of IOL is chose and that the IOL is properly placed.

VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser

The Visx STAR S4 IR excimer laser is a world-leader in 100% personalized iLASIK and PRK laser eye surgery.

Iris registration technology provides precise tracking of your eye. A high resolution photograph of your specific iris details is used to create your unique iris “fingerprint”. The STAR S4 IR laser uses this high resolution image to accounts for the natural changes in eye position and movement ensuring exact alignment and centration of your customized iDesign treatment.

ActiveTrak 3-D Active Eye Tracking and ActiveTrak Automatic Centering work throughout your treatment, in conjunction with the iDesign Iris Registration technology, to track more than 99.4% of eye movements. Using this information the STAR S4 IR laser re-aligns before delivering every laser pulse ensuring your treatment is centred and accurately position on your eye.

Variable Repetition Rate (VRR) technology continuously changes the pulse rate of the laser beam to minimize the laser’s thermal impact on your cornea and optimize the treatment time.

Variable Spot Scanning (VSS) allows varying size of the laser beam. Varying laser beam sizes give Dr. Conlon the ability to further customize your treatment to correct the optical imperfections while preserving as much corneal tissue as possible. VSS technology results in faster recovery and more precise vision after your treatment.
