Conventional LASIK Surgery
It corrects only spectacle number but does not correct any other distortion.
Optimized LASIK Surgery
It corrects spectacle number and optimized correction of distortions to maintain
a prolate natural like cornea, thus giving better vision at night and dim illumination.
Wavefront-optimized LASIK, is an enhanced version of conventional LASIK. It does
not address pre-operative HOAs, but the laser ablation is adjusted, based on the
patient's eyeglasses prescription, to minimize any increase in spherical aberration
induced by the treatment.
So whereas the goal of wavefront-guided LASIK is to identify and treat multiple
HOAs (including spherical aberration) and refractive error during the corneal reshaping
of the eye, the goal of wavefront-optimized LASIK is only to limit any increase
in spherical aberration during the treatment of refractive error by the laser.
Customized LASIK Surgery
It corrects spectacle number and the optical distortion. These distortions are measured
in a wave form with a aberrometer which is extremely precise. Individualised customized
wavefront guided vision correction outcomes avhieved are far superior then conventional
or optimized 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
