Aberration-Free ablation profile in a patient with myopic astigmatism

TREATMENT TOOLS

ORK-CAM for optimum lasering

Comprehensive planning for individual refractive laser correction

The intelligent SCHWIND CAM module ORK-CAM is the ideal planning tool for successful excimer laser refractive vision treatment.

It can be used with AMARIS lasers for all common ablation techniques – LASIK, FemtoLASIK, LASEK, PRK, and the touch-free TransPRK or SmartSurfACE.

  • Wavefront guided profile for retreatment with optical zone enlargement

  • Wavefront guided profile for better quality of vision after corneal injury

  • Wavefront guided profile for better quality of vision in a progressive keratoconus patient combined with corneal crosslinking

Two types of treatment

Aberration-free

This is the first choice for patients whose vision is not compromised by higher order aberrations. Only spherical and/or cylindrical refraction values are corrected. The patient retains his or her accustomed vision perception.

 

Customised

This type of treatment is for patients with higher-order aberrations. Customised treatments use corneal or ocular wavefront data from the high-resolution SCHWIND diagnostic systems to reduce higher-order aberrations and improve vision perception.

Highly precise planning of all refractive treatments from LASIK to SmartSurfACE

Aberration-free treatments – the perfect ablation profiles for patients with good vision (with glasses or contacts)

Customised treatments – the perfect ablation profiles for patients with higher-order aberrations and reduced vision

Precision down to the details

Centration strategies

In both treatment strategies, the doctor can enter an offset for sphere and cylinder centering. In the symmetric strategy, the treatment zone is centred on the visual axis or corneal vertex. With the asymmetrical strategy, the treatment zone is concentric to the pupil. This eliminates the need to enlarge the optical zone, thus saving tissue.

 

Dynamic transition zone  

In all treatments, ORK-CAM calculates the ideal size of the transition zone based on the refraction, the treatment method, and the optical zone. This speeds up planning and helps achieve stable outcomes.

 

Ablation per pulse

ORK-CAM defines the ablation per pulse depending on the treatment method and tissue characteristics. Individual nomograms are not necessary. This makes both planning and treatment easier. 

 

“Minimise” functions 

In customised treatments, the ablation volume and depth can be minimised by removing higher-order aberrations. This results in less tissue ablation, shorter ablation duration and higher patient safety.

  • Myopic ablation profile with ocular wavefront
