Iris Registration Since every patient who undergoes LASIK eye surgery is unique, they deserve to be treated as such. With the new technology provided by CustomVue, every patient is given a safer and more unique experience customized to their eyes. There are two key advantages to Iris Registration, a component of laser eye surgery specifically used with the VISX Star S4 Excimer laser. The first advantage of iris registration is that it allows for proper patient identification. Patients have their eyes evaluated by a wavescan treatment which produces a detailed image demonstrating the patient’s unique characteristics of the iris. This is much like taking a fingerprint but far more accurate since no two irises are the same. During the surgical procedure, the VISX laser compares the patient’s iris to the data from the wavescan to confirm that they match. If they are not a match, the laser will not initiate treatment. This eliminates the possibility of surgical error ensuring that the patient receives their own unique treatment plan. The next advantage of iris registration is that it establishes proper alignment during the laser surgery. Traditionally, the surgeon would manually mark the eye with ink which is far less precise than iris registration. This new technology uses unique matching points to accurately align the treatment onto the cornea which is invaluable since the patient may have been in a slightly different position when the wavescan treatment was created. Iris registration also engages in active 3D eye tracking in case the patient moves their eye at all during surgery. The surgeon then can re-register alignment to guarantee accurate placement on the patient’s eye. Iris registration is advantageous during laser eye treatment because it is an automated method of aligning your eye for surgery which makes certain greater accuracy during the procedure. Also, iris verification reduces surgical errors by guaranteeing that the right patient is receiving the proper treatment. These advantages are provided with no extra charge and would hopefully contribute to the peace of mind of the patient.
