Did you know that you can correct your vision with custom LASIK surgery?
At Stahl Eyecare Experts in Manhattan, we offer a comprehensive set of vision correction services. One option for you to consider is precision LASIK, also known as custom LASIK surgery.
Our board certified LASIK surgeons will discuss the options available for your unique vision and help you compare the differences in relation to your visual and lifestyle needs. Our goal is to provide the best procedure for LASIK candidates, with the least amount of risks. Read on to discover four benefits of one of our most popular procedures, custom LASIK surgery.
Custom LASIK uses what’s called “wavefront” technology to create a highly-detailed, three-dimensional map of your cornea. This corneal map is so incredibly precise, your doctor can identify even the most minute imperfections, allowing for greater accuracy during your LASIK procedure.
Since the corneal map essentially functions as a “blueprint” of each eye, your LASIK surgeon can provide vision correction that’s customized to the unique features of your cornea — this wasn’t possible prior to the invention of wavefront technology.
Addresses Many Vision Problems
Our eyes can contain both higher- and lower-order aberrations, a term for imperfections on the cornea. Traditional LASIK surgery can only address lower order aberrations such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. By contrast, custom LASIK uses wavefront-guided technology to detect and fix both types of aberrations — this results in treatment for complex eye issues such as glare, halos, starbursts, blurring and other vision problems.
In contrast to traditional LASIK, custom LASIK is a blade-free procedure, which helps reduce your risk of corneal infections and other post-surgery complications. The laser uses no heat, so there is no corneal tissue damage during surgery.
Greater Margin of Vision Improvement
One of the main benefits of wavefront-guided LASIK surgery is it goes one step beyond improving how much you can see by also improving the overall quality of your vision. Patients who undergo custom LASIK surgery not only have a better chance of achieving vision that is 20/20 or higher, they also have improvement in contrast sensitivity and night vision quality.
