Offering The World’s Most Advanced Laser Vision Correction Technology
The LASIK procedure is truly customized for you…based on your individual vision profile. Because of the LASIK technology, many safety-minded organizations, including NASA and the U.S. military have approved LASIK for Astronauts and pilots. Using the LASIK platform, our surgeons create the corneal flap using the IntraLase Method (100% bladeless) and, in a matter of seconds, rotate the patient under the Advanced CustomVue laser to correct their vision.
STEP 1 – Creating Your Personal Vision Profile
The first step in the LASIK procedure is to perform a series of tests to determine the individual characteristics of your vision, including the use of our WaveScan technology. The WaveScan system creates a 3-D map of the unique imperfections of your eyes. Then our Advanced CustomVue process uses the digital information from that map to design a custom treatment for each of your eyes.
STEP 2 – Making the LASIK Flap
As described previously, the LASIK procedure exclusively uses an advanced technology called the IntraLase Method, which is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your corneal flap. The IntraLase Method also delivers outstanding visual results – more patients achieve vision that is 20/20 or better when the IntraLase Method is used.
STEP 3 – Your Laser Vision Correction
Now that you’ve had your personal vision profile using WaveScan technology and your blade free corneal flap using the exclusive IntraLase Method, your vision can be corrected using the Advanced CustomVue treatment within the LASIK procedure. With the Advanced CustomVue treatment it is possible to correct all types of refractive errors, including mild-to-severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and all types of astigmatism. It can improve the overall quality of vision by correcting higher order aberrations (vision problems not correctable by glasses or contact lenses). This translates into better vision for driving at night, and lack of glare and haloes.
PRK is simply laser treatment but without the flap. For some patients PRK is the best choice. Modern PRK has very good results but it typically takes a little longer for recovery than LASIK.Learn More
Many people who are not good candidate for LASIK due to thin corneas, dry eyes and high refractive error can now experience vision correction with the Visian ICL.Learn More
