See How The Blade-FREE LASIK Procedure Works!

The LASIK technology for Marc Hirsch, M.D.

By working with a practice that uses state of the art LASIK technology you can be assured that your outcome has a more accurate and safer chance of success. Our LASIK technology is listed below.

What is Blade-FREE LASIK?

When LASIK first arrived as a laser vision correction procedure, a microkeratome was used to create the corneal flap. Over the years ophthalmologists have found that when complications arise from LASIK they are typically from a poorly created corneal flap. Unlike mechanical instruments, the IntraLase blade-free LASIK technology is uniquely able to program the dimensions of your flap based on what's best for your eye(s). Then the IntraLase laser creates your flap from below the surface of the cornea-without ever cutting it. This process is done in a series of steps:

Custom LASIK (Wavefront Technology)

On May 23, 2003 the FDA approved the VISX Wavefront Guided CustomVue laser vision correction treatment and set a new standard for vision correction, with the potential to enable better vision than contacts or glasses, even at night.

CustomVue LASIK Clinical Study Results (VISX LASIK FDA STUDY)

VISX's FDA clinical study results were remarkable. Among other things:

CustomVue treatments are based upon measurements obtained from the VISX WaveScan aberrometer, a new diagnostic system that captures a "fingerprint" of the eye which is 25 times more precise than what was previously measurable by the conventional phoropter method. In addition, the WaveScan evaluates more than nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, as it captures other, more specific imperfections in each individual's vision. This data is then used to generate an individualized CustomVue treatment.

Since its' introduction, wavefront-guided CustomVue treatments have become the new gold standard of excimer laser refractive treatments. We have experienced a definite increase in 20/20 postoperative uncorrected visual acuities and an almost doubling of patients seeing 20/15 or better after surgery. It has also been determined that a patient is ten times less likely to complain of night vision issues following customized treatments vs. the older conventional treatments.

The Excimer LASER

VISX Star 4 Excimer Laser with IRIS registration

Visx Star 4 Excimer Laser MilwaukeeThe VISX star4 excimer laser is one of the top excimer lasers with superior technology.

The VISX STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser System is designed to bring Advanced CustomVue™ laser vision correction to life. Featuring VSS Refractive™ technology (Variable Spot Scanning) and VRR™ (Variable Repetition Rate) pulse-packing algorithm, both proprietary to AMO, the STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser reduces thermal effects on the cornea, allowing you to perform the Advanced CustomVue procedure quickly and effectively, while maximizing patient safety.

Using the STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser System, surgeons can deliver the broadest range of wavefront-guided laser vision correction treatments to patients. In fact, more than 94 percent of eligible candidates in the U.S., and more than 99.75 percent outside the U.S., may potentially benefit from the Advanced CustomVue procedure.
