While standard LASIK has been a revolution in vision correction, LASIK MD also offers the latest in laser vision correction technology: Advanced Custom Wavefront LASIK. Custom LASIK is a procedure that enables your surgeon to further customize the standard LASIK procedure to your individual eyes.
If you have a higher prescription, thin corneas and larger-than-average pupils, then the advanced custom wavefront technology is probably the procedure that is best suited for your eyes and needs.
Patients who are candidates for Standard LASIK are also eligible for this technology.
Please note that Advanced Custom Wavefront LASIK can also be performed using an IntraLase Femtosecond laser, instead of a precision flap-making instrument (microkeratome), to create the corneal flap, making it an All-Laser LASIK procedure.
The Custom LASIK Advantages:
More Patients Are Candidates
Advanced Custom Wavefront LASIK allows for the correction of a greater number of patients, including those with higher prescriptions and even those who may have been deemed non-candidates in the past.
Better Quality of Vision
The Advanced Custom Wavefront technology can, in many cases, improve the quality of both day and night vision compared to standard treatments. The laser is capable of treating people with larger pupils and is better for night time vision quality. It also minimizes the risk of night time glare and haloes. Advanced Custom Wavefront results in a corneal shape that is closer to the normal curvature of the natural eye, providing better quality for both day and night vision.
Increased Accuracy and Safety for Better Results
Advanced Custom Wavefront LASIK removes 20%-30% less corneal tissue, which is healthier and safer for the eye. Custom LASIK is also particularly beneficial for patients with thinner than average corneas, larger pupils and higher prescriptions.
