Loden Vision Centers is one of the first LASIK centers in Tennessee to offer the iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio System Used by NASA
At Loden Vision Centers, we are proud to now offer the iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio System (Abbott) as part of our LASIK procedure. iDesign is the same imaging technology that NASA is using in the new James Webb Space Telescope, set to launch in October 2018. Loden Vision has chosen iDesign—as has NASA—because it is the most sophisticated and reliable mapping technology available today.
iDesign was just approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States, so we are excited to finally be able to offer this advanced technology to our LASIK patients.
What Is iDesign Advanced WaveScan Technology?
The iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio System is an advanced 3-D mapping technology used during the preoperative LASIK exam. It precisely measures the imperfections in your eye, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism, or some combination of these conditions. These imperfections are what affect your vision and can usually be corrected by LASIK. iDesign provides 5 times the resolution of earlier 3-D mapping technologies.
Based on iDesign’s ultra-precise measurements, the system creates a unique 3-D map of your eye. Think of this map as a fingerprint of your eye. No two are exactly alike! That’s why the iDesign System then creates a LASIK treatment plan that is more accurate and personalized to your eye than was ever available before. Because each eye is different, LASIK treatment should not be “one size fits all.” If it is, you can’t expect an outstanding visual outcome like you would at Loden Vision (99% of our patients see 20/20 or better after LASIK!(1).
iDesign Is Good News for Non-LASIK Candidates!
With iDesign Advanced WaveScan technology, more people may now be eligible for LASIK—even those who may have previously been told they did not qualify. That’s because iDesign can provide a more detailed “fingerprint” of the eye than has ever been possible with previous 3-D mapping technology. Using iDesign, our LASIK surgeons may now be able to treat patients with higher levels of astigmatism in combination with nearsightedness and patients with a wider range of pupil sizes.
