Zyoptix™ System

Truly Customised Treatment at our St Helens Centre

We are pleased to offer Bausch & Lomb’s sophisticated Zyoptix system at our St Helens practice. Zyoptix(TM) software works by collecting data about your eyes from two different sources and then using the data to programme a laser with your individual treatment. Zyoptix(TM) not only utilises wavefront technology to measure your optical system, but also assesses the structure of your cornea.

Like standard laser treatment, Zyoptix(TM) is fast and virtually painless. However, Zyoptix(TM) differs from LASIK surgery because it measures and treats small vision errors and provides patients with highly customised treatment. No two Zyoptix(TM) treatments performed at our St Helens practice are the same – instead, each treatment is unique and tailored to a patient’s individual needs.

The system is married to a 3D eye tracker and a ‘state-of-the-art’ Iris recognition technology which is one of the most sophisticated in the industry. The tracker follows your eye movements in all directions, including rotation and the Iris recognition software together ensures that the laser treatment is not only applied to the correct eye but placed precisely where needed on the cornea even if you move your eyes during treatment.

If you are interested in receiving custom LASIK surgery with the Zyoptix(TM) system, please contact our St Helens practice to set up a consultation.

I have worn reading glasses for years so I decided I would go for laser surgery. Read several negative reviews on high street stores and it appeared it was a case of do the procedure and that's it, no aftercare as such and not always good results. But then I came across Viewpoint. The reviews were good so I made an appointment. Although I initially thought I would be having laser surgery, Dr Chitkara recommended I had a Raindrop Implant. Although the thought of someone cutting my eye and inserting a lens, albeit tiny, terrified me I thought I would take the plunge and go for it! I can honestly say it was totally painless. Drops are administered in the eye and you cannot feel a thing. The procedure took about ten minutes and post-op Dr Chitkara suggested I take paracetamol if there was any discomfort - there wasn't. I have been for a check up every four weeks and everything is fine. I can now read without glasses unless it is very small, faint print. It can take six months to see the full benefit. I would definitely recommend Dr Chitkara and the Raindrop Implant, just wish I had had it done years ago! Beverley W –  Cheshire July 2016
Not the most pleasant surgery experience I’ve ever been subjected to but wow! What a great result! 34 years with spectacles and now 20-20 vision and given up smoking to boot! Well worth it!

My consultation was absolutely hospitable and enjoyable. I wish I knew this man before because I went elsewhere and did not receive adequate help even though I paid fees, causing me so much stress. The operation was easy, painless and all through the process DR Chitkara and staff were very friendly and reassuring. This has changed my life completely now my sight is restored. Dr Chitkara even phoned me after surgery at home to make sure I was doing well. I can’t say enough how I appreciate his service and kindness.
