About Custom Laser Eye Surgery
LASIK, or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a quick, painless form of laser eye surgery designed to correct myopia, hyperopia and / or astigmatism so you can greatly reduce or completely eliminate your daily dependence on prescription glasses or contact lenses.
Your eye shape and corneal topography are as unique as a fingerprint. Before starting the laser vision correction procedure, Custom Femto LASIK WaveFront-driven imaging technology is used to generate a distinct map of your eye’s optical system, including its unique refractive error. This advanced diagnostic technology identifies the slightest eye abnormalities with far greater precision than ever before possible, including nearly imperceptible deviations known as “higher-order aberrations.” The Custom Femto LASIK WaveFront-guided treatment includes a distinct optical-correction schematic uniquely tailored for each individual eye. This data is used to customize your surgical treatment protocol, and directs the SCHWIND AMARIS® 750S excimer laser that is used to reshape the curvature of your cornea during laser eye surgery.
Once your optical system has been mapped, an advanced femtosecond laser technology, called IntraLase, is used to create a corneal flap. The corneal flap is lifted to access the underlying corneal tissue. Then, using the SCHWIND AMARIS® 750S excimer laser, the curvature of the cornea is reshaped to correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
The SCHWIND AMARIS® 750S excimer laser system is the most advanced laser platform currently available and, thanks to its revolutionary iris registration technology, is able to align treatment automatically, with the highest degree of precision, regardless of whether the patient’s pupil has shifted positions between the moment the eye was first measured and the time of treatment. Iris registration technology also ensures the greatest degree of personalized treatment, as no two eyes are the same. Once the laser eye surgeon is satisfied with the newly contoured cornea, he carefully places the flap back in its original position, where it re-seals itself to the eye, without the need for sutures.
Patients usually notice an improvement in their vision within 24 to 48 hours after surgery, and are able to return to work or their normal activities at this time. Often, patients no longer need to rely on prescription eyewear to see clearly, and many achieve 20/20 vision — or better — after laser eye surgery.
