The iDesign high resolution wavefront sensor brings even greater precision to laser refractive surgery


The iDesign is the latest very high resolution wavefront scanner from AMO. There are now over a thousand wavefront scan points over the pupil, and effectively a sight test is performed at each location. This results in the ability to achieve greater precision than ever before with wavefront-guided treatment. Mr Stevens has been involved in the development of iDesign and Moorfields was the first eye centre in the UK to use iDesign technology.

iDesign employs a sophisticated wavefront measurement, similar to the laser technology used to examine the mirrors of the James Webb Space Telescope.

U.S. World Cup Defender has vision saved by Julian Stevens - The New York Times & Daily Express


When U.S. World Cup Defender Jay Demerit suffered a severe infection caused by a speck of dirt trapped under his contact lens, he feared he would not only miss the World Cup but would have to retire from soccer altogether. Using a femtosecond laser for extreme precision, Mr Stevens performed revolutionary corneal surgery to save Demerit's vision and his career.
