VISX Star S4 IR Excimer Laser
Chicago Cornea Consultants, Ltd. have access to the VISX Star S4 IR Excimer Laser for certain 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. primarily 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, Rachel Epstein are all Board-certified ophthalmologists with advanced fellowship training specifically in corneal surgery. As corneal specialists who have performed tens of 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.
