iDesign is a type of diagnostic medical equipment that is used before LASIK surgery in order to measure your eyes. It assessed the eyes, gathering information from multiple data points. The end goal is to get the most precise assessment possible in order to determine what changes have to be made to your eyes in order to allow you to see clearly without any corrective lens. Thanks to advances in technology, a special camera is used as part of the iDesign technology to determine what the unique needs are when it comes to your vision. Once the iDesign has been used to evaluate your eye, it will provide Dr. Patel with the blueprint for the specific changes that need to be made to your cornea for the best possible results.
How Can iDesign Help You?
If you are seriously considering LASIK surgery to correct your vision, you want to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing our surgeon is going to get it right the first time around. iDesign uses innovative technology in order to make sure your eye surgeon is spot on with your evaluation. Whether you have myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, your eye surgeon may be able to help you to see well without anything getting in your way. If you feel like glasses or contact lenses have been holding you back, consider the difference that LASIK surgery can make for you with iDesign.
Are You a Good Candidate for LASIK Surgery Assisted by iDesign?
In order to be considered for LASIK eye surgery assisted by iDesign, you need to be at least 18. You also need to be in good health. If you are suffering from diabetes or a condition that affects your immune system, this procedure is not for you. Your eyes need to be in good health as well. You need to have corneas that are thick enough for the procedure. If you are pregnant or you are breastfeeding, you will need to wait to consider LASIK surgery. During pregnancy and the time after delivery when you are nursing, your body produces hormonal fluctuations that affect your vision. If you wear contacts, be sure to take a break before your evaluation. Dr. Patel will advise you about how long you should go without your contacts. They change the surface of your eye and can affect your measurements during your evaluation.
