LASIK is an excellent choice for many patients. Custom LASIK is a laser vision correction procedure that helps your LASIK surgeon further customize the correction to your individual eyes. LASIK surgeons are able to focus on the quantity as well as the quality of your vision. Custom LASIK may result in vision clearer and sharper than ever before.
How Custom LASIK Works
Custom LASIK uses Wavefront Technology to measure the way light travels through your eye. This technology performs a detailed analysis of your eye that examines the entire optical system. The instrument used provides information about the unique visual characteristics of your eye, allowing for an additional level of data about your vision. This, in turn,enables your TLC LASIK surgeon to further customize your vision correction. The data is used to guide the laser during your Custom LASIK laser vision correction procedure for optimal results.
Better Quality Vision
Custom LASIK is necessary for some patients and desirable for many. Everyone's eyes are different. A pre-procedure consultation with your doctor will help determine if Custom LASIK is right for you based on your particular prescription, healing profile and expectations.
Compared to other forms of laser vision correction, Custom LASIK has been shown or is believed to provide patients with:
A greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision1
The potential, in certain cases, for better vision than possible with contacts or glasses
- Less incidence of glare, halos and night vision disturbances2
