What is it for?

Tracking and compensating for your eye movements during surgery.


When is this done?

During surgery.


What actually happens?

The eye tracker monitors your eye’s natural micro-movements and calculates positional corrections

needed to place the laser spots in the right place on the cornea. In addition, should your eye move outside of the treatment zone, the eye tracker enables the laser to stop firing until the eye is back in position (passive tracking).


How does it feel?

You do not feel the eye tracker.


What does it do?

The purpose of the eye tracker is to enable the laser spot to be delivered to the right position on the cornea.


How does it benefit you?

Eye tracking is essential to optimise results of laser eye surgery as there are always small eye movements, even when you are looking directly at a target light. Eye tracking means that even if you move your eyes the treatment is not affected.
