Did you know that your vision is as unique as your fingerprint and that no two eyes are the same? We believe individualized treatment is essential for the best in LASIK, which is why we have invested in the WaveFront™ iDESIGN System for our practice. WaveFront™ technology creates a detailed map of your eyes, this allows our experienced LASIK surgeons to provide you with laser vision corrections based on measurements 25 times more accurate than are possible with any system used to produce glasses or contact lenses.
Before WaveFront™ technology, doctors could not correct vision to fit each patient’s unique visual “fingerprint.” Now, we can measure tiny imperfections and tailor your LASIK surgery to the distinct characteristics of your eyes. Not only is this technique more accurate than was previously possible, it’s safe as well. In May 2015, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the iDESIGN system. SightMD is the first practice in the region to incorporate this improved technology for a safer and more effective technique for performing truly personalized LASIK.
The WaveFront™ iDESIGN Long Island practice acts as the guidance system for our VISX Star S4™ Excimer Laser. Working in conjunction with our IntraLase® bladeless system for creating the corneal flap, patients who were once not considered ideal candidates for LASIK, due to thin corneas or a previous laser vision surgery, may now undergo the procedure.
