Customizing Your LASIK Surgery

Nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism are the eye conditions commonly remedied with LASIK surgery. These visual impairments are called lower order aberrations. Custom LASIK takes conventional LASIK a step further by utilizing wavefront technology to correct for higher order aberrations. A wavefront analyzer assesses just how light travels throughout the eye and generates an outline of the patient’s refractive error. In a perfect eye, the wavefront remains flat, but in an imperfect eye the wavefront takes on the unique shape of that eye. These distortions are referred to as wavefront errors. The treatment of a patient with the data acquired from the 3D map supplied by the wavefront analyzer can accomplish greater visual acuity than from the utilization of eyeglasses or contact lenses, or even conventional LASIK. Custom LASIK does not merely improve how much you can see but also how well you can see. Using wavefront technology, sharpness and clarity of vision can be enhanced. Also, custom LASIK can correct for contrast sensitivity and fine detail which results in lowered risks of impaired night vision and dimly lit conditions. Custom LASIK minimizes the likelihood of some regular symptoms that follow conventional LASIK, like halos, glare, and shadows. The overall quality of one’s vision is improved through custom LASIK.


With custom LASIK, every person is treated as the unique individual that they are, tailoring the surgery specifically for the patient while hoping to achieve greater visual outcomes. This customized procedure minimizes the potential risks of reducing contrast sensitivity and complications with night vision while enabling the patient to accomplish increased visual acuity. Custom LASIK using wavefront technology can result in clearer vision than the patient ever knew was attainable. Call us to find a local LASIK surgeon today!! (213) 465-4008 cus7031tom1220
