The doctors at Maine Eye Center use the VISX Star 4 CustomVue? with IRIS registration. VISX was an original company that was first producing laser vision correction equipment since the 1995 FDA approval of PRK. VISX has been a recognized leader and pioneer in the field of vision correction. Now VISX is officially known as Abbott Medical Optics and works on a variety of vision correction platforms. During the wavefront technology and CustomVue FDA clinical trial work VISX developed a national study utilizing multiple vision correction centers to accurately assess the outcome of this new technology. It was during this study that we learned that 98% of Custom LASIK participants were seeing 20/20 or better after the LASIK eye surgery. This event was noted as uniquely outstanding and the acceptance of custom LASIK started. What was even more exciting was that 70% of the post-operative cases were calculated at seeing 20/16 or better.
