Wavefront And Lasik Surgery Will Ensure Success

Feb 10, 2008
For Lasik Eye Surgery, Houston Texas surgeons try to incorporate the latest and greatest of tools to ensure the success of Lasik Surgery, and give their patients the best care possible. Using Wavefront Lasik is one way to do this.

Astronomers who needed to adjust the optics of their telescopes have used Wavefront for quite some time, but it has only recently been applied to this surgery in nationally and abroad. To date, numerous surgeons use wavefront for both pre-operative and post-operative procedures.

DIAGNOSTIC

With Wavefront, doctors measure existing issues utilizing a device called the aberrometer, which generates a complete aberration map of the eye.

A surgeon will ask you to stare into the wavefront display as the aberrometer projects an infrared laser beam on your retina. The light will then reflect off your retina and collect data on the internal structures of your eye. As unique as a fingerprint, this wavefront shape is processed and mathematically interpreted to detail your vision problems.

The surgeon will use the accumulated data for pre-operative screening and post-surgical analysis. Later on, a surgeon will use aspects of the wavefront information to hone an exclusive post-operative treatment regimen.

CORRECTIVE

Most individuals who seek out the assistance of a Houston Lasik surgeon, either have nearsightedness, far sightedness or astigmatism. These visual imperfections can usually be satisfactorily corrected with wavefront technology.

Surgery here utilizes wavefront technology will not only improve how much you see as but how well we see. This, of course, is dependent on the amount of damage to the eye, as well as the type. An ethical surgeon will not suggest a procedure that is of little benefit to the patient.

On average, most people are happy with this surgery, as an FDA clinical study indicated that custom wavefront Lasik makes lasting, quality results, and in fact, 98% of post-op patients could see 20/20 while 40% said that they could see better after their vision was corrected with Wavefront surgery than they did with glasses or contacts even a full year after surgery!

When considering eye surgery, Texas citizens need to understand all the options available in the realm of this surgery, to make informed and sound choices in vision correction.

A number of laser procedures are available. Lasik is a specific excimer laser surgery. Other laser ablations or cornea reshaping procedures can be done with conventional laser treatments, wave front optimized treatments and wave front guided treatments. Another type of laser is femtosecond laser can be used to create the corneal flap.
