LASIK is a popular procedure we use to reduce or eliminate reliance on glasses. With new advancements in laser technology, LASIK surgery is even better. It can now be customized based on factors other than just your eyeglasses prescription. New measurements and enhanced lasers take into account higher order refractive errors to provide a more precise reshaping of the cornea. What does this mean for you? Patients who undergo customized LASIK surgery are even more likely to achieve a visual acuity of 20/20 after surgery when compared to those who underwent traditional LASIK. Some even attain vision better than 20/20!
Customizations in LASIK also take into account more than just your vision as it is measured in the office. Even with “perfect” vision, patients may still complain of issues like glare in bright sunlight or halos around headlights while driving at night. These are known as “higher-order aberrations” and are not taken into account with traditional LASIK. With the latest, most technologically advanced lasers, these higher order refractive errors can be corrected during your customized LASIK procedure to ensure your sharpest possible vision.
