Eye care major Bausch & Lomb has launched its latest
vision correction technology Zyoptix 100. The new technology
enables quicker laser eye surgery than the conventional
laser operations as it incorporates the iris recognition
maps the eye accurately to facilitate easy corrections
that are not only accurate but also customised to each
individual eye. The iris recognition technology captures
the iris image of each patient''s eye, transforms the iris
structures into a unique, digital key and stores this
information along with the other diagnostic data. This
ensures that the correct eye is treated each time, and,
in the case of a disparity, will not allow the procedure
to go ahead. The probability that two different eyes are
identified as a match is 1 in 3,493,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
& Lomb has sold the technology to the city based Reya
Zyoptix-100 Laser Vision Centre.
