Wavefront-guided custom LASIK is truly revolutionary because it can improve both how much you can see and how well you are able to see. This means enhanced fine visual detail and greater contrast sensitivity. Custom LASIK is a great solution if you want to enjoy clearer, sharper vision with less risk of post-LASIK complications.
Vision is comprised of both lower-order aberrations, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, which are refractive errors, and higher order aberrations, such as night glare, which are optical defects. Traditional LASIK treats refractive errors only. Custom LASIK treats both refractive errors and optical defects, helping the patient achieve even higher vision quality.
Custom LASIK Advantages
The benefits of custom LASIK include:
- Greater opportunity of achieving 20/20 vision or better
- Reduced occurrence of lost visual quality, poor contrast sensitivity, and night vision issues
- Removes less corneal tissue, resulting in a reduced risk of a“thinning” of your cornea
According to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), custom LASIK is used by most refractive surgeons in their practices. Prior to Wavefront technology, LASIK surgeons had no mechanism for measuring higher-order aberrations. This is why traditional LASIK could only correct refractive errors. Wavefront LASIK, however, measures vision errors that occur as light travels through the eye. The technology then creates a completely individualized laser correction of your eye’s surface. LASIK surgeons in Edison, NJ, Dr. Hitesh K. Patel and Dr. Himanshu S. Shah can program the laser to precisely correct your vision disorder, ensuring better overall vision quality with reduced risk.
Custom LASIK and Your Vision
Wavefront technology is unrivaled as a diagnostic tool because it can detect aberrations, or vision flaws, other systems would miss. Because Wavefront technology offers such sophistication, Dr. Patel and Dr. Shah can more easily determine which LASIK procedure will provide the best outcome for your unique refractive error.
