Looking for a higher level of customization for your LASIK surgery?
CUSTOM LASIK MIGHT BE YOUR BEST OPTION
For many patients looking to regain their personal freedom and escape the hassles and irritation of glasses and contacts, LASIK might be the answer you’re looking for. This includes those with normal prescriptions or those with severe degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. For others, a more advanced and personalized LASIK procedure is now available. Custom LASIK, the gold standard in laser vision correction, allows your surgeon to increase the treatment range to include higher-order aberrations and gives you a truly customized procedure for your individual eyes.
ABOUT CUSTOM LASIK
The actual Custom LASIK procedure is almost identical to conventional LASIK. However, Custom LASIK uses wavefront technology that improves the performance and quality of your individualized vision correction. A wavefront analyzer is able to generate a 3-D map of your entire optical system that gives your surgeon a highly-detailed view of your individual eye. The wavefront analyzer used in Custom LASIK makes the procedure as much as 25 times more precise than conventional LASIK. Studies have shown this precise level of customization allows the patient to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contacts, reduces the change of night-vision disturbances and glare, and gives the patient a greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
Your surgeon will use the wavefront analyzer to gently reflect light off your retina to capture the unique optical map of your eye. This information is then electronically transferred to the laser to enhance your treatment. Once this information is collected, anesthetic drops are applied and a flap is created on the surface of your eye. Cool laser light is then applied to the inner corneal layer, reshaping irregularities within the eye. The surgeon then aligns and closes the flap allowing for the healing process to begin. The entire procedure lasts approximately thirty minutes.
