LASIK

LASIK (Laser Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis) was first described in 1990 by Pallikaris. He and his co-workers applied the excimer laser energy to the deeper layers of the cornea by briefly flipping aside a thin superficial corneal flap, and then replacing it after the laser treatment was completed.

Following the initial experiments and trials in blind human eyes, it was found that LASIK was more predictable than PRK, and caused fewer side effects. The flap, once repositioned, was found not to require sutures to hold it in place because of the adherence created by the suction effect of the endothelium.

The latest advances in LASIK include lasers which track the eye during the actual laser treatment by locking on to the center of the undilated pupil (VISX STAR S4). This allows for the latest in wave front technology to guide the laser correction of a highly accurate optical fingerprint or waveprint of the eye resulting in better visual outcomes than with conventional (non-wavefront guided) laser treatment.

CUSTOM LASIK

The CustomVue procedure provides a unique correction for each individual. An optical fingerprint of the eye is captured using the VISX WaveScan System. This new measurement of the eye is 25 times more precise than what was previously measurable by standard methods for glasses and contact lenses. WaveScan  measures not only nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, but also more detailed optical imperfections that affect an individual's eyesight. This data is then used to generate an individualized CustomVue laser vision correction treatment.

FDA clinical study data presented at the 2003 ASCRS Symposium showed that at one year following the procedure, 98% of the clinical study participants could see 20/20 or better without optical correction.

This new technology can be used when performing an enhancement procedure in someone who has had previous Laser Vision Correction using standard or non-CustomVue™ measurements. When it is determined that an enhancement is necessary to obtain the desired result, incorporating the CustomVue method has been shown to yield better clarity, contrast and night vision.
