Custom LASIK, also known as wavefront LASIK, is quickly becoming the new standard in laser vision correction, as it offers the most accurate, individualized results for each patient. This FDA-approved procedure uses three-dimensional measurements of the eye to help guide the laser as it reshapes the cornea and corrects your vision.
Custom LASIK lets patients benefit from a higher chance of achieving 20/20 vision, with many patients achieving vision that is better than 20/20, a feat often unachievable with traditional LASIK or glasses or contacts. Custom LASIK also reduces the risk of poor night vision and glare, side effects that are common with traditional LASIK.
During this procedure, a wavefront device transmits a ray of light into your eye that is received and arranged into a unique pattern to create a 3-D map of your eye, including both lower and higher order aberrations. This information is then transferred to the laser and applied to your eye’s position, allowing your doctor to achieve customized vision correction for your individual needs.
Request an appointment with Dr. Rabinovitch or speak with your eye care professional about your options. Seeing eye to eye on your treatment choices is a vital step in selecting the one that is right for you.
