Active Eye Tracking

What is it?

During Laser Eye Surgery, a patient cannot keep their eyes completely still. That’s where Active Eye Tracking comes in.

An eye tracker compensates for eye movements during the procedure, ensuring that the laser spot is delivered to the right place on the cornea – even if the eye moves.

How Does it Work?

The eye tracker constantly tracks the natural micro-movements of the eye throughout the procedure and calculates the positional corrections needed to place the spot of the Excimer Laser in the correct position on the cornea.

If the eye moves outside of the treatment zone, the eye tracker feeds this information to the Excimer Laser, pausing the treatment until the eye is back in the right position – this is called “passive tracking”.

What will I feel?

The eye tracker does not make contact with your eye so you won’t feel anything as it tracks your eye’s movements.
