CO-WAVE
#1. Problems in Everyday Life

Night blindness or blurred vision is not only uncomfortable but dangerous.

Imagine how dangerous it will be when the headlights of an oncoming car is burring your vision whilst driving at night. Actually the treatment for night blindness or overlapping vision has been the most talked about for a long time.

The reason for blurred vision is uneven aberrations.

Aberration is the distortion of the image when light passes the cornea. Each person has his or her own aberration, and minimizing the aberration during laser surgery reduces blurred and overlapping vision, which can be accomplished with Corneal Wavefront, or Co-Wave, surgery.

Internationally talked about: Corneal Wavefront

Producing outstanding results, Co-Wave has been a subject of many international studies. EYEREUM has also contributed in informing the excellence of Co-Wave by being the first in Asia to reduce coma aberrations, the cause of blurred vision, by 38%.

#2. Individually Tailored Surgery

Individually tailored topographic surgery based on your Co-Wave data.

Imagine how dangerous it will be when the headlights of an oncoming car is burring your vision whilst driving at night. Actually the treatment for night blindness or overlapping vision has been the most talked about for a long time.

Your corneal aberration analysis results are stored in an SD card through SCOUT, and when this is interlocked with the surgical laser, your very own tailored corneal topographic surgery, Co-Wave, can be performed.

Rotation of the eyeball due to gravity. Modified with SCC SCC: Static cyclotorsion measurements using the Schwind Amaris laser

The moment you lie down under the laser, gravity causes your eyeballs to rotate. The eyes rotate about 4.1° on average depending on gravity and your posture. If the eye rotates 5°, it can be undercorrected by 17%. (Source: American Academy of Ophthalmology) Thus, for the laser to probe on the exact location requires zero/null-adjustment. This is called Static Cyclotorsion, or SCC.

Hyper-Q: For those with large pupils and worry about night blurred vision.

Patients with large pupils tend to experience night blurred vision more than others.
Hyper-Q surgery creates a wider correction area for those patients as well as minimizing the amount of corneal removal.

※ The relationship between the area of the cornea that is being corrected (optical zone) and the amount of corneal epithelial that is removed:

If the laser-corrected area is large, then the removed cornea amount also increases. However, the thinner the cornea, the higher the possibility is for vision regression, keratoconus, and other serious side effects.
For this reason it is ideal to reduce the removed cornea amount and simultaneosly correct the aberration.
