Like a fingerprint, every eye is unique. Therefore, a unique treatment plan for LASIK eye surgery is needed. Wavefront analysis is a technique we use to produce a 3-dimensional measurement that explains how the eye processes images and to adjust the settings that guide our laser to re-shape the front part of the eye (cornea).

The precision of our wavefront-guided system individualizes vision correction with outcomes that would otherwise be impossible to achieve with traditional LASIK surgery, contact lenses or eyeglasses.

People with mild to moderately high degrees of common vision defects such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism, may want to consider LASIK laser vision correction. However, not everyone is a candidate. Although LASIK corrective eye surgery is elective, a good candidate qualifies for LASIK surgery by meeting certain general requirements outlined by the FDA. A good surgeon who conforms to these guidelines reduces post-surgical risk factors and furtherance safe surgical practices. Our thorough pre-operative evaluation will help determine if you are a good candidate.

How well the eye can focus light rays is partly determined by the quality of the corneal surface. When measured using wavefront technology, the irregularities of the corneal surface are mapped. That information allows our physicians to customize a laser treatment plan for each eye. Using precision-guided lasers, the irregularities can be corrected.

Standard prescriptions for glasses, contacts or traditional LASIK procedures can correct ordinary vision defects such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. But other irregularities associated with the eye’s optical system could not be addressed until the advent of wavefront and related technology used in custom LASIK.
