Early User Experience with Visante OCT for the Anterior Segment

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), initially developed for high-resolution imaging of the retina, has more recently found application in the anterior segment of the eye. OCT is unique for the front of the eye in that it allows precision imaging and biometry that previously was available only with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or immersion ultrasound. OCT also allows patients’ eyes to be imaged in a noncontact manner, which is both practice and patient friendly… Tags: Visante OCT, time, Survey, patient, Refractive surgery, Data, Femtosecond Laser, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Experience,...

IntraLase’s International Expansion A Growing Global Presence

Twenty years after laser vision correction was first performed, the technology utilized in the procedure today has improved dramatically to make the procedure (now known as “LASIK”) even safer and better than before. One of the key transitions currently underway in many markets is in how the corneal flap is created, moving from a “bladed” approach with traditional microkeratomes to an “all laser” approach utilizing the femtosecond laser as well as the excimer… Tags: laser, Procedure, Vision Correction, flap, Laser Vision Correction, traditional microkeratomes, Technology,...
