At Travers Lasik Vision Care, we make it a priority to have the latest, most state of the art diagnostic equipment available to LASIK surgeons. We feel it is necessary to offer patients the most advanced diagnostic technology to help determine what type of vision procedure is best for our patients, and to create the most comprehensive vision care plan possible. By having these three state of the art diagnostic machines at Travers Lasik Vision Care, Dr. Travers can better choose who is a good candidate for laser vision correction. Dr. Travers analyzes all of the data from these pictures to customize each patient’s treatment. Most laser vision correction clinics do not utilize three diagnostic machines.
Orbscan®IIz Corneal Topographer
The Orbscan is a powerful diagnostic system that provides a more in-depth understanding of the cornea than traditional topography by creating a detailed map of the entire cornea surface. The corneal map is created in 1.5 seconds with over 9,000 data points to analyze the elevation and curvature measurements of the cornea. The Orbscan is an invaluable tool during pre-op diagnostics with its ability to detect and analyze corneal abnormalities, measure the anterior and posterior surfaces of the cornea, and create customizable maps to illustrate the measurements.
WaveLight Vario Topolyzer
WaveLight Vario Topolyzer is an advanced eye-mapping device. The Topolyzer gathers nearly 22,000 points of data on the cornea.
This information and data is seamlessly integrated into The WaveLight EX500 excimer laser for the perfect custom LASIK surgery.
By utilizing the Vario Topolyzer, Dr. Travers can customize Lasik procedures to treat each patient’s specific visual axis as well as utilize iris registration capabilities to have their Lasik treatment applied to the cornea avoiding any cyclo-rotation of the eye.
ATLAS™ CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY SYSTEM
The Zeiss Atlas Cornea Topographer (formerly known as Humphrey’s topographer) is one of the best purely anterior surface topographers. It is a computerized, photographic instrument that has the ability to detect irregular conditions in the cornea by way of a small footprint of the eye created by thousands of data points. The Humphrey Atlas Topography System provides accurate information to determine whether or not a patient is a candidate for LASIK. The topographer also has the ability to detect slight conditions of the eye such as keratoconus, and can help doctors monitor subtle changes of the cornea over time.
Equipped with the automatically rotating Scheimpflug camera, the Pentacam is able to perform a complete measurement of the eye in less than 2 seconds by taking pictures of the anterior and posterior surfaces of the cornea. The Pentacam gives information about cornea shape and thickness of the cornea. The data collected by the Pentacam provides the basis for a three-dimensional model of the complete anterior eye segment.
