iLASIK with IntraLase & Star S4 IR
At Bergman Porretta Eye Center we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible vision. Our iLASIK technology suite combines the IntraLase™ iFS femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap and the Star S4 IR Excimer to treat the individualized imperfections of each eye. This unique combination of technology offers a number of benefits including improved safety, better visual outcomes and a higher degree of predictability and precision.
The femtosecond laser eliminates the need for a blade to create the flap and allows Dr. Ronald H. Bergman, M.D. to customize the size, shape and orientation of the corneal flap for each individual eye. This level of customization also allows more patients to qualify for LASIK.
The Star S4 IR Excimer laser uses the WaveScan wavefront to measure and guide the laser to create a more customized corneal shape unique to each eye. This technology is designed to improve the quality of vision during daylight and to prevent problems with night vision. The Star S4 IR laser possesses superior accuracy and speed when compared to older excimer laser systems.
