The WaveScan sends a ray of light into the eye, which is reflected from the retina back to the device. Imperfections in the visual system change the paths of the reflected light waves, which are then computed into a detailed 3-D WaveFront map. This is your eye's unique 'fingerprint'.
The WaveFront Map for each eye is entered into the laser system to create a laser treatment pattern that exactly matches the imperfections of the eye. It's this map which allows Dr English to perform the correction procedure in a precise, accurate and truly customised manner.
