Wavefront diagnosis is an exciting technology that has revolutionized the way ophthalmologists identify the corrections that will give you the best vision possible. By measuring your eye at a fine level of detail, Wavefront diagnosis makes possible a truly custom LASIK experience that can free you from the inconvenience of glasses and contact lenses.
The LASIK surgeons at Patel Eye Associates are pleased to offer this exciting development in vision technology to our Edison, NJ, patients. The best way to determine if LASIK with Wavefront diagnosis is the right option to provide you with crisp, sharp vision is to speak with our ophthalmologists in person. Please call 732.985.5009 today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel.
What is Wavefront Diagnosis?
When you choose the experienced LASIK surgeons at Patel Eye Associates, you take advantage of the latest technology available. In the past, only common refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism could be measured and corrected with LASIK. But now, with Wavefront diagnosis, we’re able to measure the detailed surface of the eye and build a highly accurate, three-dimensional map representing your own unique anatomy.
Higher Order Aberrations
Wavefront diagnosis allows us to measure what are known as higher order aberrations. While you’re probably familiar with low order aberrations such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, higher order aberrations are optical issues that produce complex errors in vision. Higher order aberrations cause problems not treatable with traditional LASIK methods. These problems include:
- Double vision
- Poor contrast sensitivity
- Visual issues associated with light sources, like glare, halos, and starbursts
Wavefront diagnosis allows Dr. Patel to correct for these errors and gives you the crystal clear vision you might never have thought possible.
Benefits of Wafefront Diagnosis
Because Wavefront diagnosis measures the exact shape of your eyes, Dr. Patel can design a custom LASIK procedure just for you. Wavefront diagnosis allows Dr. Patel to correct your eyes at a much finer level of detail than was previously possible, which means your surgery offers you:
- Much better visual clarity
- Better chances of achieving 20/20 vision or better
- Improvement in contrast
- Improved night vision
- Reduced risk of complications
With wavefront diagnosis and custom LASIK, you benefit from the latest technology and a personalized approach.
