The VISX STAR S4 is an excimer laser by VISX,® a pioneer in the development of excimer laser systems. The STAR S4 laser requires a shorter procedure time and contains the ActiveTrak,™ a sophisticated eye tracking system that can capture all three dimensions of intra-operative eye movements without dilation of the pupils.

The main benefit of the VISX STAR S4 laser is that it produces the smoothest surface on the cornea after the procedure. This promotes faster healing which results in better vision. The STAR S4 laser is FDA approved to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

The 3D ActiveTrak® EyeTracker tracks the horizontal, vertical and up and down motion of the eye in real time. By verifying the correct position of your eye before every laser pulse, the laser can safely and precisely control the placement of each laser pulse.


With the introduction of Wavefront mapping technology, Dr. Boothe can now further customize the treatment options for every patient. The new WaveScan® technology developed by VISX can detect higher-order aberrations that have gone previously undetected. Halos, poor night vision and overall quality of vision are improved.

The resulting diagnostic information is converted to a Wavefront Map and this individualized treatment information is transferred directly to the laser. The Wavefront Map guides the treatment, resulting in a Customized IntraLASIK procedure.


Automated Iris Registration (IR), is a non-contact method for aligning and registering the Advanced CustomVue procedure. IR correctly centers and aligns the treatment, independently of pupil center migration, as well as compensates for cyclotorsional movement, providing a more precise ablation placement. By enabling much more accurate alignment, IR gives you the confidence that the treatment you recieve will be safe, effective and accurate.


The VISX Star S4 laser comes with the ActiveTrak™ 3-D Active Eye Tracking with automatic centering, an FDA-approved tracker that tracks eye movements along the X, Y and Z axes. These features facilitate the accurate performance of the Advanced CustomVue™ procedure.


The results of the FDA’s clinical study on visual acuity show that 6 months after the VISX CustomVue procedure:

  • 100% of patients could see 20/40 or better
  • 94% achieved 20/20 or better
  • 74% were 20/16 or better

Overall, many patients were pleased with their quality of vision, with four times as many patients satisfied with their night vision when compared to wearing their glasses or contacts. 98% of nearsighted patients who undergo WaveFront Customized IntraLASIK at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center achieve 20/20 vision or better!


  • Delivers benefits of Iris Registration (IR).
  • Conserves tissue by optimizing treatment times and minimizing thermal effects on the cornea.
  • Eliminates the need for dilation; laser tracks on the natural pupil.
  • Adjusts for intra-patient (XYZ) movement with ActiveTrak™ to further improve treatment accuracy.

Lasik Testimonial

Brett Severyn - Dallas Stars Lasik Patient 

“I recommend Dr. Boothe to anyone that wants to get LASIK surgery. Professionalism, the staff, the after care, these are the great things that Dr. Boothe can do for you. Get this done!"
  “If I could use one word to describe Dr. Boothe and his process, it would be ‘wonderful.’"
  “Now that I have had the LASIK procedure, it’s been an awesome experience. I can see things — and getting up in the morning, being able to run without putting on glasses or contacts has been great for me."
  “When I met Dr. Boothe, he sat down with me and we went through everything, helping me understand every aspect of the LASIK procedure. My eyes are very important to me and he just made me feel at ease and I knew then that he was the right man for the job.”
