Custom LASIK is a laser vision correction procedure which measures the unique visual characteristics of your eye in order to customize your treatment. Custom Wavefront Guided LASIK provides an additional level of precision.

A device called a wavefront analyzer measures the way light travels through your eye and then creates a 3-D wavefront map which is unique in the same way that your fingerprint is unique to you. Your wavefront map provides a detailed diagram of the areas of distortion (called aberrations) that allows your doctor to provide you with truly customized vision correction.

Several types of visual imperfections referred to as lower and higher order aberrations exist within the eye and can affect your vision. With conventional LASIK, only lower order aberrations (such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism) can be measured and treated. These do not account for all visual imperfections. Higher order aberrations also have a significant impact on your vision.

Custom LASIK will help to correct these higher order aberrations that, in the past, could not be adequately corrected with glasses, contacts or conventional LASIK. Custom LASIK provides you with the best possible quality vision.
