Introducing the Latest in Eye Exams The Pentacam HR Imaging System
As part of an ongoing effort to bring our patients the best in complete eye care, Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons has added the Pentacam HR (high resolution) Imaging System to our array of state-of-the-art testing equipment. Our staff now utilizes the Pentacam HR imaging system as part of our screening and diagnostic procedures.

The Pentacam HR has enabled us to analyze the front "anterior" segment of the eye with an accuracy that was previously not available, thus permitting us to diagnose conditions and diseases with greater confidence and repeatability in less time. Further, the rotating imaging process lasts only seconds resulting in up to 138,000 measured and analyzed points in three dimensions. Using this new tool, our surgeons are able to optimally analyze candidates for LASIK, corneal surgery, complicated cataract procedures, as well as for glaucoma and difficult diagnostic situations.

The Pentacam HR performs five tests as once and generating hundreds of calculations instantly, vastly reducing the amount of testing required.
 
The Latest Technology in Laser Vision Correction
What Patients Want to Know about CustomVue Individualized Laser Vision Correction
What is CustomVue laser vision correction?
Visx CustomVue is an individualized laser vision correction treatment that is WaveScan-guided. This enables a doctor to measure and correct unique imperfections in each individual's vision that could never be measured before with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. With the CustomVue procedure, individuals have the potential to achieve a new level of vision that we call Personal Best Vision.

Does the WaveScan hurt?
No, the WaveScan is a measurement device that you simply gaze into while it measures the vision imperfections in your eye.

What do you mean by Personal Best Vision?

Personal Best Vision refers to the new level of laser vision correction that can be achieved with the CustomVue procedure. Since WaveScan technology can measure and correct imperfections that are unique to each individual's vision with 25 times more precision than standard measurements for glasses and contact lenses, individuals can potentially achieve the best possible vision for their eyes.

How accurate is WaveScan technology?
WaveScan technology identifies and measures imperfections in an individual's vision 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses.

How does the CustomVue procedure work?
First, the WaveScan technology measures the imperfections in the eyes and produces a WavePrint Map. Much like a fingerprint, no two WavePrint maps are alike. Then, the treatment information is transferred to the Visx Star S4 laser. The doctor then uses that information to fine-tune the procedure thereby providing a new level of precision and accuracy.

What can CustomVue procedure do for me?
As shown in the clinical study, CustomVue has the potential to produce better vision than is possible with glasses and contact lenses. It tailors a distinct correction for each individual - in fact each treatment is "designed" by the unique characteristics of your individual eye.

Can the CustomVue procedure improve my night vision?
Yes, potentially. In the clinical study, four times as many people were very satisfied with their vision at night after the procedure as compared to their night vision before the procedure with glasses and contact lenses.

What is WaveScan and a WavePrint Map?
WaveScan technology provides a measurement and a visual representation of your vision based on the behavior of light waves. It compares light passing through your eye to the same light pattern from an eye that needs no vision correction. The WavePrint Map is the output of the WaveScan, it captures the unique imperfections of a person's visual path.
How WaveScan WaveFront Works
WaveScan WaveFront technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. Using this technology, your doctor can detect and measure the optical distortions unique to your entire optical system.

Light travels in a procession of flat sheets known as wavefronts. Gentle wavefront lights enter the eye, pass through the entire optical system (cornea, lens and retina) and are then reflected back into the WaveScan sensors.

The WaveScan system compares the reflected wavefronts with the original unaltered wavefronts. This produces a fingerprint of your vision, or WavePrint Map. This information is then transferred to the Visx S4 Laser and is used as a guide to reshape the cornea during your laser vision treatment.

"Hands down the best group ever. I see Dr. Palmiero and he is honestly the best eye doctor I have ever seen. I even told him at my last appointment that I always look forward to seeing him. I'm a type 1 diabetic and when I first saw him and told him that he mentioned to me that he specializes in Glaucoma. Knowing that I won't have to see a different eye doctor if I ever do end up with Glaucoma sure does make me very happy. So far I have no signs of Glaucoma at all. Even do my last appointment was almost 2 hours's because they had to do a regular eye exam, a visual field test, dilate my eye's and wait 15 minutes for eye's to fully dilate, and also take picture's of my optic nerve and what it looked like this year and last year and he told me that it hasn't changed at all. The rest of your staff are also extremely wonderful and very helpful."
