Understanding Wavefront LASIK

Wavefront LASIK is an advanced laser vision correction technique that provides three dimensional mapping of the eye for optimal results. Also known as custom LASIK, this technique measures your eye’s ability to refract light and guides the eximer laser to correct your exact refractive error.

Greensboro ophthalmologist Dr. Khemsara uses WaveScan® for CustomVue™ for wavefront procedures. WaveScan converts images to WavePrint®, making a digital representation of each eye as unique as a fingerprint. This provides Dr. Khemsara ultimate control over the reshaping of your cornea.

Benefits of Wavefront LASIK

Wavefront LASIK may be better able to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, along with the age-related disorder presbyopia. However, the true benefit of wavefront technology comes from its ability to correct high order aberrations.

High order aberrations such as glare, halos, or starbursts are impossible to correct with traditional LASIK. In fact, traditional LASIK may increase your risk for these problems. By contrast, wavefront LASIK is so precise it can accommodate correction of these problems, allowing it to address visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and fine detail. During your initial consultation, it can best be determined if wavefront LASIK is right for you.

If you live in or around Winston-Salem, Greensboro, or Kernersville, North Carolina and would like to learn more about your LASIK options, please contact Summit Eye Care to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Khemsara today.
