Custom Lasik Eye Surgery
VISX CustomVue™ Improves the View of Laser Vision Correction
CustomVue™ Individualized Laser Vision Correction was developed by VISX, the company recognized worldwide for bringing innovation and breakthrough technology to laser vision correction. With CustomVue, a new standard in laser vision correction is established, providing a precise level of measurement and correction never before possible.
Until recently, LASIK treated patients strictly based on their optical prescription despite the fact that their eyes each have a unique set of naturally occurring imperfections. This is known as conventional LASIK.
Today, with the advent of wavefront diagnostic technology, wavefront-guided excimer lasers can now treat patients according to the uniqueness of their entire optical system, not just their prescription.
Wavefront technology compares distorted waves of light exiting the eye to flat waves of light that would have returned in a perfect optical system. This information is converted to a 3D map that then serves as a guide for the excimer laser while reshaping the cornea.
Results have shows that Custom LASIK can reduce some of the unwanted visual effects associated with conventional LASIK; especially those associated with night vision such as glare and halos. Custom LASIK has the potential to improve the quality of vision and make patients see even better then they could with glasses or contact lenses.
