VISX CustomVue

On May 23, 2003, VISX, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA), announced the FDA approval of CustomVue laser correction. CustomVue combines the VISX STAR S4 laser system with the WaveScan Wavefront System to provide for the treatment of myopic astigmatism up to -6.00 D MRSE with cylinder between 0 and -3.00 D. One-year data from the FDA trial found that 98% of people could see 20/20 or better UCVA, and a 6-month subjective evaluation of participants showed that four times as many people were very satisfied with their night vision after the VISX CustomVue procedure, compared to before. The system includes new Variable Spot Scanning (VSS) ablation technology that uses beam diameters ranging from 0.65 mm to 6.5 mm. Ablations can be uniquely designed with the CustomVue system to include optical and transition zones beyond 9 mm. The CustomVue system also includes the ability to ablate a plastic disc called the PreVue lens with a wavefront ablation so that the patient can view the intended correction through a trial frame.
