Precision of schwind amaris excimer laser

Schwind Amaris 1050RS ground breaking eye tracking system facilitating faster delivery of treatment. The advantage to you as a patient having your laser eye surgery treatment delivered as quickly as possible means that you only need to concentrate on the fixation light for a shorter time.

Furthermore, the benefit to your eye is that the corneal tissue is only exposed for a very short time. This prevents the ocular tissue drying out, assisting in accelerating healing and clarity of vision. The Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser systems unique eye tracking system registers 1050 times per second how your eye moves during the treatment, there is no other excimer laser capable of this level of precision. The laser beam can thus always be perfectly positioned. Up to 1050 laser pulses per second.


Innovative Eye tracking in up to seven dimensions

In addition to horizontal and vertical eye movements, the eye can also rotate, roll, tilt or even move up and down. The Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser systems register all of these movements with an eye tracking system that compensates every movement of the eye up to the seventh dimension.¹

An analogy to explain the advanced 7 dimensional eye tracker is to imagine your eyeball being a buoy in the sea: When the sea is calm, the buoy shifts from the left to the right or forward and backward. In a swell, however, the buoy tilts to the side. Furthermore, a buoy also turns around its anchorage or moves up and down. In the same manner, your eyeball can make linear movements (1st and 2nd dimensions), rolling movements (3rd and 4th dimensions), rotate around its own axis (5th dimension) or move up and down along the z-axis (6th dimension). The 7th dimension considers the time factor and compensates for eye movements that occur during the reaction time of the laser system. That means laser treatment delivered without latency.

The Schwind Amaris laser systems offers you the leading technology for laser eye surgery providing excellence in all important aspects of your treatment - precision, safety and comfort. The Schwind Amaris laser systems groundbreaking innovations have been materialised - such as the ablation with two energy levels or the unique eye tracking system. So far, these features have not been available in any other device.
