NIDEK Topography-Guided Excimer Laser Redefines Custom LASIK
Custom Wavefront LASIK in Bucks County, Montgomery County, Philadelphia, Elkins Park, Phoenixville, Warminster Dr. James S. Lewis
Nidek’s Custom and Optimized Aspheric Treatment achieved FDA approval in 2014 representing a major breakthrough for LASIK.
Nearly 50% of Custom Patients read the line beyond 20/20! Visual performance surpassed the acuity results of all other LASIK platforms.
The NIDEK system combines a 5th generation excimer laser (Quest EC-5000CXIII), the leading Topography/Wavefront Aberrometer/Auto Refractor (OPD II*) and NIDEK’s Final Fit™ software.
Final Fit™, in development for over a decade, allows the surgeon to carefully plan Custom LASIK treatment. Unlike systems in which devices have a “one size fits all” approach, NIDEK surgeons can design the optimal visual solution for each patient. The extra time spent individualizing refractive strategy yields a lifetime of enhanced visual function. Final Fit™ allows surgeons to manipulate and extrapolate from 11,880 data points measured and verified by the OPD II*. Combining corneal topography and wavefront aberrometry with surgeon driven algorithms produces the instructions for the Excimer Laser. Thanks to a 200 mHz** eye tracker and Torsion Error Control, the intended corneal sculpting is created exactly. LASIK surgery has become more precise without losing the importance of surgeon control and guidance.
This triumvirate of OPD II, Final Fit Software and Data Controlled Excimer allows Dr. Lewis to treat highly aberrated corneas. That is, patients with corneal damage from trauma, infection, or sub-optimal LASIK can be successfully treated for the first time in the US. Also, patients with irregular astigmatism after corneal transplant, a special interest of our practice, can be treated.
Patient Eye Movements Concerns Vanish thanks to new technology.
Torsion Error Correction
The Torsion Error Correction (TEC) system detects and compensates for rotational eye movement during LASIK.
200 mHz** Eye Tracking System
Built-in advanced 200 mHz** Eye Tracking System (ETS) utilizes high-speed digital image processing technology to follow the patient’s eye, ensuring accurate and precise laser alignment and delivery during the procedure.
Inadvertent eye movements are no longer a source of concern for the NIDEK LASIK patient.
Refractive Power / Corneal Analyzer OPD-Scan II
The OPD-Scan II* provides information on wavefront aberrometry, corneal topography, refraction, keratometry, and pupillometry allowing us to plan your LASIK Surgery.
Sophisticated Software yields Optimal Clinical Decisions
Custom Ablation Software Final Fit™
The Final Fit™ software takes your visual information from the OPD-Scan II*, and, with direction from Dr. Lewis constructs an idealized postoperative corneal shape. Final Fit™ then generates excimer laser shot instructions for the NIDEK Quest.
Intelligent diagnostic technology yields superior visual results.
Shot Data Generation
The Final Fit™ software evaluates and converts the OPD-Scan II’s refractive and topographic data to produce the precise customized
ablation parameters for the excimer laser system. These unique algorithms in conjunction with surgeon oversight control the
corneal irregularities and decentered ablations. With this exciting new device Dr. Lewis can now treat irregular corneal astigmatism. Final Fit™ is the only software of its kind on any platform.
