A-Z OF EYES
Technolas Perfect Vision TPV has developed an entirely new and innovative corneal approach to treating presbyopia with an excimer laser, known as SUPRACOR. SUPRACOR is performed using the TECHNOLAS Excimer Workstation 217P.
SUPRACOR is a new aberration optimised presbyopic algorithm which is designed to be applied to myopic, hyperopic and emmetropic eyes, as well as post-LASIK cases.
PresbyLASIK is a general term designating a lot of different techniques of multifocal corneal remodelling with a LASIK procedure. SUPRACOR's main difference is how it uniquely combines features for remodelling of the cornea for far, near and intermediate visual acuity.
One of the main strengths of SUPRACOR is in its effectiveness in correcting presbyopia in hyperopic patients. Another very important aspect is that it is not a monovision procedure. Patients have similar vision in both eyes for distance and near, so that binocular vision is not affected.
