Wavefront technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to measure and reduce optical distortions when viewing objects in space.
Just like a fingerprint, each person’s vision is 100 percent unique to their eyes. Before the recent advancements in “Wavefront-Driven” or “Custom-LASIK” technology, doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision, meaning that prescriptions could only provide a limited level of correction regardless of an individual’s needs.
Now, AMO VISX CustomVue wavefront technology can measure and address the unique imperfections of your individual vision and provide you with the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses- Personal Best Vision.
With CustomVue wavefront technology, we can now identify, measure, and address imperfections in your eye 25 times more precisely than with conventional methods used for glasses and lenses. This advanced refractive information is transferred to the AMO VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System and is used as a guide to reshape your cornea during your laser vision treatment.
Treatments are available for a variety of San Francsico LASIK patients, including those with astigmatism, whether the astigmatism is associated with nearsightedness, farsightedness or mixed astigmatism. As a result more than 94% of the U.S. population that requires vision correction, 21 years of age or older, is potentially eligible for this life-altering procedure.
