Just like a fingerprint, each person’s vision is 100 percent unique to their eyes. Before the recent advancements in technology, doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision. This meant that prescriptions could only provide a certain level of correction regardless of an individual’s needs. CustomVue™ Individualized Laser Vision Correction, developed by VISX, established a new standard in laser vision correction. In addition, CustomVue™ provides a precise level of measurement and correction never before possible.
CustomVue uses WaveScan®-based digital technology, originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes. Doctors can now identify, measure, and correct imperfections in an individual’s eyes 25 times more precisely than with standard methods. As a result, providing patients with the potential to experience better vision. If you’re over the age of 21 and are nearsighted and/or astigmatic, you may be a candidate for the CustomVue procedure.
CustomVue™ Laser Vision Correction Procedure
Before the procedure, patients will need to schedule a consultation. There, they can share any questions or concerns with our staff and determine if they are a good candidate. Then, our staff will assess the patient’s overall health and create a detailed, unique map of their eyes. After this is all complete we can schedule the procedure.
On the day of the procedure, the patient will receive anesthetic drops. Then, we transfer the patient’s unique correction information from the WaveScan to the laser. Laser vision correction works by gently reshaping the cornea with the cool beam from the laser. Additionally, the laser removes microscopic amounts of tissue to create a new curvature. The procedure typically takes several seconds and the majority of individuals feel no discomfort.
