CustomCorneaź or Wavefront analysis, is a new
advancement in the field of Lasik. With standard Lasik, treatment is
based on the measurement of lower order aberrations, which in most cases
amounts to the refraction, i.e. the correction used in the making of
ones glasses or contact lenses. For example, everyone with three
diopters of nearsightedness would get the same identical laser
With Wavefront analysis, we are able to measure the
lower as well as the higher order aberrations of the eye. The higher
order aberrations represent small irregularities other than the
refraction which are unique to each individual eye. The laser treatment
would then reflect the unique visual characteristics of each eye
providing a customized treatment. No two treatments would be the same,
because no two eyes are the same.
How is this done? Wavefront technology is a
computerized device which passes light rays to the retina in the back of
the eye and then reflects them out through the front of the eye. A three
dimensional "Wavefront" map is generated which captures all
the lower and higher order aberrations of the eye and then transmits
this information to the excimer laser which customizes the treatment
based on the individuals visual irregularities.
What are the advantages of CustomCorneaź? With
Wavefront technology there is a greater chance of achieving 20/20 or
better visual acuity. There is also a diminished chance of having
nighttime vision problems, for example, people report less glare and
starburst effects from lights at night with the new technology. All in
all, studies show that the quality of the vision is improved with
CustomCorneaź, when compared with standard Lasik.
