Customized Lasik

Custom LASIK Surgery

Custom LASIK has become the most common vision correction procedure performed in the United States. The acceptance of Custom LASIK by patients and eye care professionals is due to rapid visual recovery, excellent visual results, and increased safety. When performed by Dr.Kenia the Custom LASIK procedure for both eyes takes approximately 15 minutes!

CustomVue™ and Wavefront™ LASIK today allows our doctors to correct an individual’s unique refractive error, achieving results that are better than those attained with glasses or contacts. Almost everyone has a friend, colleague, or family member that has benefited from this extraordinary procedure. Patients are always amazed by the speed and comfort of Custom LASIK eye surgery.

Preoperative Testing

Once our doctors determine that you are a good candidate for Custom LASIK or an alternative eye surgery, you will schedule a preoperative exam in our hospital. During this exam, your eyes will be dilated and our technicians will perform an array of diagnostic tests to gather all the data they need to develop the best possible surgical treatment plan.

Please Note: If you are a contact lens wearer, you must refrain from wearing contact lenses before this exam:

  • Soft lenses - 1 week before your exam
  • Toric lenses - 1 weeks before your exam
  • Hard or gas permeable lenses – 3 weeks for every decade of wear

Once you have completed your preoperative exam, you can have Custom LASIK eye surgery as soon as the following week!

Wavefront™ LASIK Surgery

To get you prepared for Custom Wavefront™ LASIK surgery on the day of your procedure, a technician will bring you into an exam room. They will review the procedure and the postoperative instructions. Valium will be dispensed to reduce any anxiety about the pending procedure. The technician will then prepare your eyes by cleaning your eyelids and instilling a series of drops.

Custom Wavefront™ LASIK involves two steps: the creation of a corneal flap followed by the reshaping the cornea with the excimer laser.

Creation of the Corneal Flap using IntraLase®

IntraLase® uses a beam of light to place thousands of bubbles in the central layer of your cornea. These bubbles expand to create a space between the corneal flap and the rest of the cornea, allowing the surgeon to easily lift the flap during the Custom LASIK procedure without using a blade. According to comparative studies, patients report better visual outcomes with the IntraLase® method than alternative methods of creating the corneal flap.

Our surgeons recommend the IntraLase® laser for all of our Custom LASIK patients for the following reasons:

Precision: The IntraLase® creates a precise flap of predetermined thickness and size. Safety: The flap is created with bubbles rather than a blade so the formation of an irregular flap is exceedingly rare.

Outcomes: Comparative studies, including one by the U.S. Navy on fighter pilots, confirm that patients see better following laser eye surgery with IntraLase® than with previous methods!

For many years, the mechanical microkeratome was the only option to create the laser flap. While the overall results with a microkeratome were good, the flap size and thickness could not be precisely controlled. Despite proper placement by the surgeon and good patient cooperation, the microkeratome occasionally created a flap that was irregular in size or thickness. These irregular flaps required the surgeon to postpone the procedure for 3-6 months and created permanent visual distortions.

Reshaping the Cornea using Wavefront™ LASIK Technology

During your preoperative exam, the WaveScan™ is used to map out the unique characteristics or higher order aberrations of your cornea 25 times more precisely than the method used to obtain your eye glasses prescription. The map is so detailed that it is likened to a fingerprint of your cornea.

On the day of the procedure, the data from the WaveScan™ is inserted into the laser with your unique CustomVue™ treatment. Reducing or eliminating higher order aberrations has improved the outcomes of the LASIK eye surgery procedure. In fact, 98 percent of patients who participated in the CustomVue™ clinical trials saw 20/20 or better at their three month visit following surgery.

During CustomVue™ LASIK surgery, your job is simply to look at the red light. Many patients are anxious that moving during the procedure will impair the results. While it is important to stay as still as possible, there are many safety features built into the laser to improve the treatment:

  • The VISX CustomVue™ Wavefront™ laser tracks the movements of your eyes 200 times per second during the Custom LASIK procedure. If your eye moves outside of the range that the laser can track, the laser will simply shut off. When your eyes are again centered, the laser will pick up where it left off and continue your treatment.
  • Some patients wonder how they will keep their eyes open during the entire procedure without blinking. The good news is that you don’t have to. During Custom LASIK surgery, an instrument is used to keep your eyelids open for you.
  • The actual critical time that the laser is doing the treatment usually lasts between 30 and 60 seconds!

When your Custom LASIK surgery is complete, your surgeon will wait several minutes to assure that the corneal flap is secure. Once the flap is in position, you can blink normally. You will be escorted out of the laser suite by a technician and your surgeon will take one more look at your eyes.

After this point, you will be free to go home. Be sure someone is present to take you home since you may be a little sleepy from the Valium and blurry from the procedure. We do ask that you go straight home and keep your eyes closed for a few hours to help speed the healing along. Be sure to begin using your post-operative drops as soon as you get home.
