PURPOSE: To outline the technological improvements seen in the new Alcon LADAR 6000 laser. METHODS: New LADAR 6000 features can be categorized into three areas: automation, speed, and control. RESULTS: Automation features include auto-registration, specialized illumination, scleral vessel registration, and automated prompting. Speed features include a faster ablation rate and less intensive maintenance. Control features include autoregistration, a better graphic user interface, and an improved workspace. CONCLUSIONS: The technological improvements of the LADAR 6000 help eliminate the variability of measurement, alignment, and delivery needed to optimize custom laser vision correction outcomes.
