Making Your LASIK Surgery Customized
Conventional LASIK surgery normally modifies visual impairments such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism which are regarded as lower order aberrations. Higher order aberrations can now be treated with custom LASIK which utilizes wavefront technology to correct the eye. A wavefront analyzer examines the way light travels throughout the eye and produces an outline of the patientâ€™s refractive error. A perfect eye would produce a smooth wavefront but an imperfect eye would uncover an irregular wavefront specific to that eye. These distortions are referred to as wavefront errors. The data received from the 3D map produced by the wavefront analyzer can attain greater visionary improvements than eyeglasses, contact lensesand even conventional LASIK.
With custom LASIK, besides enhancing what you can see, how you see it is also enhanced. Using wavefront technology, sharpnessand clarity of vision can be improved. Also, custom LASIK can correct for contrast sensitivity and fine detail which translates to lowered risks of impaired night vision and dimly
lit conditions. Custom LASIK decreasesthe likelihood of some common symptoms that follow conventional LASIK, such as halos, glare, and shadows. The overall quality of oneâ€™s vision is increased through custom LASIK.
This customized procedure takes into consideration the uniquenessof a personâ€™s eye to create the best possible outcome. By having custom LASIK, the patient has a greater opportunity of achieving 20/20 vision or better, reduces their likelihood of losing contrast sensitivity, and minimizes the likelihood of night vision impairments. Custom LASIK using wavefront technology can result in clearer vision than the patient ever knew was achievable. Call us to find the best surgeon for you cus2707tom2233
