Your vision is unique – as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. WaveScan® wave front LASIK technology provides your eye doctor with a map of your vision.
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 wave front 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.
