Custom LASIK Eye Surgery with Wavefront Technology
The Wavefront system provides a detailed analysis of your unique cornea curvature and provides an in-depth diagnosis of all your visual distortions. This allows us to create a custom LASIK surgical plan specific to your individual needs.
WaveScan Eye Analysis
To create your personalized treatment plan, your eye doctor will use our WaveScan system to analyze each of your eyes. With this in-depth diagnostic system, we will be able to identify all of your corneal irregularities and distortions.
With traditional LASIK methods, we were only able to correct low-order aberrations (LOAs). Custom Wavefront LASIK allows our surgeons to detect and treat both low and higher-order aberrations (HOAs) with one procedure.
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Poor night vision
The WaveFront analyzer will send a ray of light into your eye that will travel through your retina and reflect back through your cornea. This will provide a detailed analysis of all of your lower- and higher-order distortions. The data gathered goes even further by analyzing exactly how your eye processes light and allows you to see.
Wavefront 3D Mapping
With this extensive measurement and diagnostic report, we will manufacture a three-dimensional map of your entire ocular structure detailing how your eye operates. This 3D map is then used to customize your LASIK laser procedure and reshape your cornea.
The map of an eye with perfect vision will have an undisturbed corneal curvature, while a map of an eye with refractive errors will present with indentations and spikes indicating high and low- order aberrations and other vision distortions.
Custom LASIK vs. Traditional LASIK
During a traditional LASIK procedure, your refractive error is corrected based only on your level of vision prescription. While this method has proven successful for many patients, new advancements in LASIK technology takes laser vision correction to a whole new level.
Custom LASIK utilizes the most advanced laser technology available throughout your vision correction journey. With state-of-the-art diagnostic technology, your eye surgeon can create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements. Diagnostic methods and surgical treatment used during traditional LASIK are limited in comparison.
When creating a custom LASIK treatment plan, we are able to provide more in-depth measurements of your cornea and comprehensive details of your refractive errors. This higher quality analysis will allow your ophthalmologist to perform a more accurate surgical procedure compared to traditional LASIK.
