Commonwealth Eye Surgery is pleased to introduce Advanced Control Eyetracking (ACE) for all of our LASIK patients. The new eye tracker presents many benefits to our patients and makes LASIK safer than ever before.
Eyetracking allows lasers used during LASIK surgery to compensate for eye movements during the procedure, thus adding an important level of assurance. However, no eyetracker has been able to adjust for subtle rotations of the eye that occur during the laser treatment – that is until now!
This new eyetracker locks on to the eye’s unique iris pattern just before the laser treatment begins, and then monitors the pattern throughout the procedure. When rotation of the iris is detected during the treatment the direction of the laser pulses is nearly instantaneously adjusted accordingly. No other laser in the US does this.
This ensures that each laser pulse of the LASIK treatment is delivered to its intended location on the cornea.
To patients, this means that they are getting the added assurance that they are getting the safest and most accurate procedure possible. Commonwealth Eye Surgery is the first and only practice in Central Kentucky who offers Advanced Control Eyetracking technology.
