Schwind Eye Laser in KSA Vision Clinic

Schwind Eye Laser in KSA Vision Clinic

KSA Vision Clinic uses the best available technology to achieve high quality results. KSA Vision Clinic performs procedures on patients from Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark with eye laser Schwind Amaris 1050 RS, the technology introduced and produced in 2014. The efficiency of this technology has been proven by various studies. Schwind Amaris 1050 RS combines the best speed with extremely high precision and gives You the best outlook for treating Your eyes.

1050 Hz frequency

Schwind Amaris 1050RS corrects 1 dioptre of myopia within 1.3 seconds. This means more comfort and higher security to the patient.

Automatic energy and temperature adjustment

In order to combine speed and precision, the Schwind Amaris 1050 RS is equipped with two energy levels. Around 80 % of the tissue is ablated by using high energy beam and 20 % by using lower energy beam. The latter assures smooth surface and perfect vision.

Exceptionally fine laser beam

The laser beams of the Schwind Amaris 1050 RS have exceptionally small diameter – only 0.54 mm and are thus significantly smaller than others. Furthermore, they have a special shape. The cornea becomes especially smooth with this fine beam.

The eye is tracked 1050 times per second

During the laser procedure, the eyes may involuntarily move within milliseconds. The Schwind Amaris 1050 RS monitors the position of the eye with approximately 1050 times per second and compensates all detected movements.

Eye tracking in 7 dimensions

The eyeball may be compared to a buoy in the sea – when the sea is calm, the buoy shifts from left to right or forward and backward. In heavy swell however, the buoy tilts to the side. In addition to that a buoy may also turn around its own axis and move upward and downward. In the same manner, the eyeball can roll, rotate around its axis of vision or move up and down along the z-axis. The Schwind Amaris 1050 RS detects all these eye movements and compensates them.

Unique thermal control

Schwind Amaris 1050 RS is equipped with a unique thermal control system, which helps to prevent any damage to the surrounding corneal tissue. This technology ensures that the cornea has sufficient time to cool down between laser pulses and the following pulses can thereby approach an already cooled position faster.

Laser software allows individual approach to each patient

Each patient and each treatment is different. Therefore the latest Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser technology with SCHWIND CAM software makes it possible to plan treatment individually and find the best solution for each patient.

Continued measuring of the corneal thickness

The integrated contact-free optical pachymetry provides our eye surgeon with information about the thickness of the cornea throughout the treatment. The changes are displayed on the screen. The corneal thickness is measured both before and after the removal of the corneal flap, as well as during the laser treatment. This increases the safety of the procedure, as it allows the surgeon to see exactly how much of the cornea has already been ablated and how thick the remaining cornea still is. All results are documented in the treatment log.

Stable microclimate

Schwind Amaris laser has two nozzles that are used to remove the microscopic particles generated in the course of laser processing. This solution creates stable microclimate across the cornea. The climatic conditions remain constant during the entire procedure, preventing the cornea from drying out.

Clinical results

International clinical studies have documented the treatment quality with Schwind Amaris technology. Visual acuity of 100 % was achieved in nearly all cases. A high percentage of treated patients could see better than before with glasses or contact lenses. The study results also show improved contrast vision.
