Custom LASIK Treatment
Custom LASIK surgery, also known as wavefront LASIK or wavefront-guided LASIK, uses 3-dimensional measurements of how your eye processes images to guide the laser in re-shaping the front part of the cornea.
Wavefront technology can potentially improve not only how much you can see, but also how well you can see. With this technology there is a reduced risk of post-LASIK complications, such as glare, halos, and difficulty with night vision, over traditional LASIK procedures. The wavefront measuring system is extremely accurate and, in many cases, can correct vision that would normally be impossible to improve with traditional LASIK surgery, contact lenses or eyeglasses.
The Custom LASIK procedure first measures how your well your eye can focus light rays and then using that information, creates a 3-Dimensional map of the irregularities in how your eye processes images. The laser then uses this information to reshape the corneal surface to fix and correct the irregularities.
The benefits of the Custom LASIK procedure include:
Greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision
Greater chance of achieving better than 20/20 vision
Reduced chance of losing best-corrected vision
Reduced chance of losing visual quality or contrast sensitivity
Reduced chance of night-vision disturbances and glare
