VISX Star S4 IR Excimer Laser

Chicago Cornea Consultants, Ltd. is proud to also offer the VISX Star S4 IR Excimer Laser for LASIK vision correction procedures. The innovative ActiveTrak technology allows monitoring of eye movement in all three dimensions without pupil dilation, which means more precise control for the doctor and less stress for the patient.

Variable Spot Beam technology gives the doctor greater flexibility, with seven separate beams ranging from 0.65 to 6.5 millimeters in size providing faster, smoother treatment and highly accurate corneal shaping. Plus, VSS (Variable Spot Scanning) technology adds a blend zone that helps smooth the cornea, increasing the ablation (treatment) zone by 51 percent. This transition provides a gradual change from the treatment area to the non-treated corner, resulting in clearer, sharper vision, especially in low light conditions. The LASIK surgeons at Chicago Cornea Consultants, Ltd. also utilize the Alcon Allegretto Wavelight laser system.

As with any medical procedure, the experience and skill of your surgeon will influence your outcomes. Drs. Randy Epstein and Parag Majmudar are board-certified ophthalmologists with advanced fellowship training specifically in corneal surgery. This is important, as the fine vision adjustments made during LASIK are possible by training the laser on the cornea of your eye. As corneal specialists who have performed thousands of LASIK procedures, you can trust in the experience and technology of Chicago Cornea Consultants, Ltd. to give you the best possible results for your vision correction procedure.

Topography-Guided LASIK

Chicago Cornea Consultants is proud to provide Alcon’s Contoura Vision procedure. The Contoura Vision procedure is a topography-guided LASIK treatment that allows our surgeons to perform more personalized procedures! This means that every procedure is tailored to that specific patient.

Topography-Guided LASIK works by creating a detailed map of the surface of the cornea. With this information, your Chicago LASIK surgeon is able to devise a treatment plan specifically for you! Whether you have nearsightedness or nearsightedness with astigmatism, the unique corneal topography of your eye will allow your LASIK surgeon to provide the best treatment possible.

Traditionally, presbyopia, which happens to all of us as we age, has always meant glasses for clear reading vision. It's a condition not even correctable by laser vision correction. Luckily, there is an option. Refractive lens exchange allows patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens.

Keratoconus can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, glares, and decreased night vision. In its early stages, keratoconus may be treated with the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses.  Keratoconus is also one of the most common reasons for corneal transplant, and one of the most successful. call any of our offices and ask to speak to the Vision Correction Surgical Coordinator, or use the contact form below.
