Your vision is unique – as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. WaveScan® Wavefront LASIK technology provides your eye doctor with a map of your vision.
Getting Started With Custom Wavefront LASIK
Initially, you will meet with your eye doctor for a complete medical evaluation and eye history to determine whether you are a good candidate for the CustomVue™ procedure. Your doctor will discuss the benefits and risks of the Wavefront LASIK procedure with you. A WaveScan® measurement will be taken to map the unique characteristics of your vision. With this map, your doctor will be able to accurately assess whether you’re a good candidate for laser vision correction. Anyone who is considering laser vision correction should obtain a WaveScan® measurement as the first step.
Along with the other diagnostic tests that your doctor performs, an individualized treatment plan can then be developed to address your unique vision needs. Once it is confirmed that you are a good candidate, your doctor will schedule you for a CustomVue™ procedure. Your doctor will provide details to you on how to prepare for the day of the procedure.
Wavefront LASIK Has More Predictable Outcomes
Benefits of CustomVue™ wave front-guided treatment over conventional LASIK eye surgery include:
- 98% 20/20 or better vision
- 70% 20/16 or better vision
- 27% 20/12.5 or better vision
Improved Vision After Wavefront LASIK Eye Surgery
- 70% see as well or better than with eyeglasses
- 58% gained up to a line of vision
- 8% gained more than one line of vision
- Four times as many people are very happy with night vision
WaveScan® CustomVue™ wavefront-guided laser eye surgery can also be used for those who previously had conventional laser vision correction and would like to further improve the sharpness and quality of their vision. It also has a better safety profile with no reported loss of vision in FDA trials.
After CustomVue™, you will notice results immediately, and your vision will continue to improve over the next few days. Typically, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit the next day, again in about a week, and again around a month after the initial procedure.
