Keeler Procyn Pupilometer
If you are a candidate for iLASIK surgery, there are two critical factors to consider: the experience of the surgeon and the level of technology to be used. At the Christenbury Eye Center, you can have complete confidence in both areas.
Dr. Jonathan Christenbury was the first eye surgeon in the area to perform LASIK surgery, and he is one of the most experienced, with more than 50,000 LASIK procedures to his credit.
The center’s investment in technology is also exceptional. One example is the Keeler Procyon Dynamic Pupilometer, a high tech measurement tool for evaluating the size of the pupil in various lighting conditions. The Procyon is completely objective and uses computer controlled image analysis to measure pupil diameter . Previously, vision specialists had to rely on a manual measurement, leaving room for human error. An accurate reading of pupil size can make a major difference in the outcome of LASIK surgery.
In addition, measurement in low light conditions or a dark room has a direct bearing on the success of LASIK surgery. Patients with pupils that dilate larger than the area treated by the laser could potentially experience glare or a halo around objects at night, reducing their ability to see in the dark. With its illuminated display area, the Keeler Procyon can be used in a completely dark testing room, which reduces interference with ambient room light and improves the results of LASIK surgery.
