What are the advantages of wavefront LASIK?

Advantages of Wavefront LASIK Tip: Wavefront LASIK offers a tremendous advantage especially for patients who suffer from higher level abnormalities which cannot be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or even traditional LASIK procedures. However, wavefront technology enables the surgeon to measure the eye from the front to the back in an effort to create a 3D image of the cornea. This information enables the surgeon to create a custom LASIK procedure which will result in a higher quality of vision.

With the use of the 3D image created by the wavefront technology, the surgeon is able to tailor the procedure and guide the laser to correct both lower level abnormalities, which cause myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, as well as higher level abnormalities, which cause blurring, halos and difficulty seeing in low light situations. Some of the advantages of wavefront LASIK include:

  • An increased possibility of the procedure resulting in 20/20 vision or better
  • Diminished potential for the loss of visual quality or contrast sensitivity
  • Diminished potential for night vision problems
