The pattern of visual imperfections in your eye is as unique to you as your own fingerprint. With conventional Lasik in Detroit, your eye surgeon is only able to use standard measurements to correct your vision. That means your basic prescription can only provide a certain level of correction, regardless of your individual needs.
During each Advanced Vision Correction Evaluation at Yaldo Eye Center, every patient has Wave Front measurements taken to determine if Custom Wave Front Technology is appropriate for your vision correction. With Wave Front, your eye surgeon at Yaldo Eye Center can measure your visual imperfections at 200 individual points. Each of the 200 individual points can be treated individually to create a personalized vision correction that is ideal for you. This precision enables you to reach the full potential of your vision, seeing better than you ever have with either eyeglasses or contact lenses.
The exceptional accuracy of Custom Lasik or Lasek with Wave Front Technology allows your vision to become “super normal” or better than 20/20 more often than with Conventional Lasik or Lasek. This advanced vision clarity is sometimes referred to as “eagle vision.”
If you’re having this procedure, expect to have it done as an outpatient in our surgery suite. Prior to the procedure, you’ll receive topical anesthetic drop and possibly a sedative. Custom Lasik or Lasek with Wave Front Technology offers a quick, relatively comfortable recovery as well. Most patients are ready to resume normal activity within just a day or two.
One year after Custom Lasik or Lasek with Wave Front Technology, patients in a clinical study reported these great results without eyeglasses or contact lenses:
- 100% could pass a driving test
- 98% could see 20/20 or better
- 70% could see better than 20/20 (for Conventional Lasik and Lasek patients, 40% see better than 20/20)
Discuss Wave Front Technology with our vision experts during your Advanced Vision Correction Evaluation. Custom Lasik in Detroit is not necessary nor appropriate for everyone, but your test results will serve as a guide in determining whether it’s the right option for you.
