To use the VISX STAR S4IR, the surgeon must become VISX certified which requires a thorough training process. Both Dr. Moretsky and Dr. Cassidy are VISX Certified.
More people in the United States (approximately 7 out of 10) have been treated with the “gold standard” VISX laser than all others lasers combined.
Our laser is the most trusted laser vision correction technology, chosen by more ophthalmologists in the U.S. than all other lasers combined! Because the VISX Star S4IR is so successful it is the only laser we use.
