What is Custom LASIK?

Your vision is unique. It is as individual as your fingerprint or your DNA. As a result, there’s no way that a standardized LASIK procedure can achieve the best possible results for all people. Instead, the best way to ensure the precision and accuracy required to achieve clear vision is to customize the procedure based on the unique nuances of your refractive vision errors.

Custom LASIK represents a significant advance from traditional laser vision technology. It allows our eye doctors to correct for higher order aberrations such as glare and halos in addition to treating conventional refractive vision errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

As implied by the name, custom LASIK gives our ophthalmologists the ability to tailor your laser vision correction procedure to the unique contours of your eyes. Due to the detail provided by a 3D wavefront map of your eye, custom LASIK results in the best possible outcome and reduces the risk of potential complications. In most instances, 20/20 vision or better can be achieved with custom LASIK.
