Victoria, Canada (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
King LASIK, leading provider of LASIK surgery with offices across British Columbia and Alberta, announced that has taken delivery of the new iDesign advanced wave scan studio aberrometer. This makes King LASIK the first center in North America to have the cutting edge measurement device used to map and analyze the eye’s surface and wavefront measurements, essential for a laser eye surgeon to perform accurate wavefront-guided laser vision correction procedures.
The new tool, called the iDesign, was only approved by Health Canada for use in August of this year, after making its way through the European approval process. The system makes a “blueprint” of the eye, mapping imperfections and offering analysis that directly lead to a treatment plan. The LASIK surgery plan that doctors can then generate with the iDesign can be executed by the Visx Star4-IR laser system in order to provide a unique, computer-driven laser correction for each patient based on the particular results of the iDesign scan.
The measurement device pairs with other laser systems such as the iFS femtosecond laser, as part of the iLASIK technology produced by Abbott, the iDesign’s maker. Combined, they “set a new standard for laser vision correction,” said Murthy Simhabhatla, Abbott Medical Optics President. This includes higher standards of safety, improved visual outcomes due to greater accuracy and alignment, and easier use for physicians.
The purchase is not surprising for those who know King LASIK’s unrelenting approach to using the best technology available in order to offer patients safer and more effective vision correction options. The iDesign joins their stable of advanced LASIK diagnostic, analysis, and surgical tools--an important part of what has made King such a successful LASIK surgery provider across North America.
With Dr. King, Dr. Ma and Dr. Nelson at the helm providing superior treatment and the King LASIK team’s commitment to superior patient care, this technological upgrade represents another reason why customers will love the service they get.
