What is iDesign?
The iDesign system is an advanced, FDA-approved LASIK method that provides an extraordinarily clear and detailed image of your eye. This image provides our experienced eye surgeons with an invaluable tool we can use to safely address your vision problems – in fact, most iDesign patients achieve at least 20/16 vision.
The iDesign system generates a high definition scan of your eye and its contours using technology that will be a part of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. The system creates more than 1,200 micro readings of the eye, capturing the shape and curvature of your cornea, as well as observing how well light passes through the pupil under different conditions.
And perhaps even more impressively, iDesign can do all of this in three seconds.
The iDesign system uses these measurements to create a kind of blueprint for your LASIK surgery. This will serve as your personalized LASIK treatment plan.
All of this technology achieves a very significant improvement over other LASIK mapping tools. With iDesign, we can see details of your eye that have never before been available to us. Clinical studies have found that iDesign patients report high levels of satisfaction, as well as observable improvements in vision.
