Your vision is unique - as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA.
WaveScan® technology provides
your eye doctor with a map of your vision.
Initially you will meet with your eye doctor for a complete medical evaluation and eye history to determine whether you are a good candidate for the CustomVue procedure. Your doctor will discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure with you. A WaveScan measurement will be taken to map the unique characteristics of your vision. With this map, your doctor will be able to:
Once it is confirmed that you are a good candidate, your doctor will schedule you for a CustomVue procedure. Your doctor will provide details to you on how to prepare for the day of the procedure.
The Allegretto Wave® customizes every LASIK treatment to meet the needs of each individual patient. The Wavefront Optimized treatment considers the unique curvature of each cornea. The system takes into account the spherical distortions that can induce glares and night vision conditions.
Allegretto Wave uses the innovative Wavefront Optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea. Lasers in the past, simply focused on correcting the front of the cornea. The results ended up being that the flattened area ended with a edge that caused unwanted side effects like glares, halos and poor night vision.
The Allegretto Wave system changes all of that by sending extra pulses to the peripheral edges of the cornea. The extra pulses allow the cornea to maintain the normal aspherical shape. The Allegretto Wave produces a smooth, effective optical zone that produces high quality vision.
In 2003, the FDA granted the Allegretto Wave® the widest approval range ever initially given to a new laser for both myopic and hyperopic vision correction. Since then, the results have been astoundingly positive.
Is Allegretto Wave® Right for Me?
The Allegretto Wave® expands the boundaries of candidacy for LASIK. In order to truly determine your candidacy to Allegretto Wave you must meet with a doctor. After a thorough evaluation with one of our doctors at Clear Choice Custom LASIK you will know if
With the Nidek EC-5000, the vast majority of procedures involving myopia with astigmatism can be performed as conventional procedures; the outcomes have been outstanding due to the system's unique technological design. First introduced in the United States in December 1998, the Nidek EC-5000 has been estimated to have been used on more than 750,000 eyes nationwide. The Nidek is an excellent laser for mild nearsighted patients who have little to no astigmatism.
The iLASIK procedure combines all of the latest technology into one LASIK procedure. The iLASIK procedure utilizes the VISX Wavescan™ System to create a personal vision profile; a digital 3-D custom map of your eye, the Intralase laser to create the corneal flap and the VISX STAR S4™ to reshape the cornea.
Step 1 – Creating Your Personal Vision Profile
The first step in the iLASIK procedure is to perform a series of tests to determine the individual characteristics of your vision using Advanced CustomVue® Wavescan technology. The Wavescan system creates a 3-D map of the unique imperfections of your eyes. This technology provides 25 times more precise measurement than with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. This map is used to drive the laser that corrects your vision.
Step 2 – Making The iLASIK Flap
The iLASIK procedure exclusively uses the Intralase Method.
A 100% blade free approach to creating your corneal flap – the thin flap of tissue that the doctor folds back in order to perform your LASIK procedure. The Intralase laser creates an extremely precise flap by producing tiny bubbles inside the cornea (clear front surface of the eye) The Intralase Method can only be performed using the FDA-approved Intralase laser.
Step 3 – Your Laser Vision Correction
Now that the corneal flap has been created, your vision can be corrected using the Advanced CustomVue treatment utilizing the VISX Star S4™ excimer laser. The VISX STAR S4™ laser system is FDA approved to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections, including mild to severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
