LASIK Press Release: iDesign Refractive Studio

October 2018:

Mandel Vision® is proud to announce it is the first and only practice in New York to offer an exciting advancement in customized LASIK technology: The iDesign Refractive Studio!

The iDesign is the Next Generation in Customized LASIK Treatments and we’re excited to add this technology to our state-of-the-art laser vision correction suite in Manhattan.

What our ability to provide this exciting new technology means for our LASIK patients:

-Every treatment is a TRUE original. The iDesign Refractive Studio is the first and only topography-integrated, wavefront-guided technology. This means that the iDesign measures the eye using a proprietary INSIDE+OUT approach by measuring and analyzing both the contour of the cornea (topography) as well as the unique optical system within the eye. This gives Dr. Mandel a more comprehensive diagnostic view of the patient’s visual system, which enables him to customize each patient’s LASIK treatment at a level never before achievable.

-The iDesign is FDA approved for higher levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, which allows Dr. Mandel to treat more patients than ever before. If you’ve been told in the past that you were not a candidate for LASIK because your prescription was too high, you may now be a candidate utilizing iDesign technology.

-The iDesign is the first FDA approved procedure for a customized monovision treatment, which will help patients over age 45 see both near and far after LASIK surgery.

To put it simply: when you measure better, you treat better.

At Mandel Vision, LASIK is our specialty and we are committed to offering our patients the latest technology available to deliver the most precise treatments possible in LASIK laser vision correction.

A Harvard-trained corneal and LASIK specialist, Dr. Mandel has performed tens of thousands of successful refractive surgical procedures.  He is the only exclusive laser vision correction surgeon in New York named in America’s Top Doctor’s by Castle Connolly, the most discriminating of the peer surveys, for 17 consecutive years.

“I am very excited about the new iDesign refractive system because it incorporates the patient’s unique corneal contour (topography) with a wavefront analysis that measures 500% more unique data points than the previous wavescan system. The fingerprint of the patient’s visual aberration that is derived from this incredibly advanced visual analysis system allows for more accurate treatments. However, it is important to note that LASIK is still a surgeon dependent procedure.” ~Eric R. Mandel, M.D.
