LASIK has never been more affordable!
LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
Wavefront LASIK Technology
Wavefront LASIK technology measures aberrations in your eyes. A perfect wavefront is completely flat. When light rays enter the eye and pass through the different structures inside, the wavefront surface changes, taking on a shape unique to that eye. These variations are called wavefront errors.
The wavefront technology’s software performs complicated measurements and presents a visual representation of how light is bent by your eye for the surgeon to evaluate. Data from this process is transferred to the laser and used by your surgeon to create a treatment plan for your refractive error including both low and higher-order aberrations. Treating a LASIK laser eye surgery patient with the information taken from the wavefront analyzer can result in greater clarity of vision and fewer complaints of glare or night halos.
To find out if you are a candidate for LASIK, or other vision correction procedures, contact Chippewa Valley Eye Clinic to schedule a consultation.
CUSTOM BLADELESS LASIK
During the first step of the Custom Bladeless LASIK procedure, a silent computer-guided laser is used to create the corneal flap. In the bladeless technology, the laser accounts for the natural curvature of the cornea, creating a customized flap of uniform thickness.
- Surgeons have the flexibility to treat a wider variety of patients
- Eliminates the need for a hand-held microkeratome blade, creating an “all laser” procedure.
The second step of the Custom Bladeless LASIK procedure is performed after the flap is made. With Custom LASIK, a customized treatment plan is created for each individual eye. This treatment plan is designed based on the patient’s individual prescriptions and corneal curvature measurements allowing for a higher quality of vision than traditional LASIK treatments.
