VISX STAR® S4

The VISX CustomVue System, with its sophisticated VISX STAR® S4 Laser, is the key to successful vision correction.  The laser is FDA approved to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.  The VISX STAR® S4 Laser offers the following significant advantages:

  • During surgery, the VISX STAR® S4 Laser uses ActiveTrak™ 3-D Active Eye Tracking to track the horizontal, vertical and up and down motion of the eye in real time. This enhances safety and precision during eye surgery by verifying the position of the eye before every laser pulse.
  • The VISX STAR® S4 Laser produces the smoothest surface on the cornea, which promotes faster healing and ultimately, better results.
  • With the ActiveTrak™ system, no pre-imaging or dilation is required and the surgeon has an exceptional level of control. These advantages add up to a significant reduction in procedure time.
  • The VISX STAR® S4 Laser is FDA approved for astigmatism surgery.

The VISX CustomVue System

With the introduction of Wavefront mapping technology, Dr. Christenbury can now further customize the treatment options for every patient. VISX’s new WaveScan® technology reveals previously undetected higher-order aberrations (subtle abnormalities that can affect vision) that can contribute to halos and poor night vision. This diagnostic information is converted to a Wavefront Map, creating an individualized treatment plan that is downloaded directly into the laser. The Wavefront Map guides the treatment, resulting in a Wavefront Customized LASIK procedure. Dr. Christenbury has used the VISX Customvue System to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with excellent results. 98% of patients who undergo WaveFront Customized LASIK with the VISX STAR S4 at Christenbury Eye Center achieve 20/20 vision or better.

Clinical Studies

An FDA’s clinical study on visual acuity 6 months after the VISX CustomVue procedure with the VISX STAR S4 laser demonstrated excellent results:

  • 100% of patients could pass a driving test without glasses or contacts
  • 98% achieved 20/20 or better
  • 70% were 20/16 or better

Overall, many patients were pleased with their quality of vision, with four times as many patients satisfied with their night vision when compared to wearing their glasses or contacts.
