Wave ScanTo reach the full potential of your vision and to achieve maximum results, Dr. Bryan applies WaveScan WaveFront™ technology to further customize your LASIK or PRK Procedure. This is also called “Custom” or “CustomVue™”.
Wavefront technology has been used for decades by astronomers to adjust high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. Using the same digital technology on the human eye assists the doctor so he can identify, measure, and correct imperfections 25 times more precisely than with conventional methods.
The Wave Scan
On the day of the procedure, your WaveScan map is obtained. Like a topographical map showing the surface features of a landscape, WaveScan™ technology creates a detailed map of your eye’s optical system. It reveals the way your entire optical system processes light. The powerful WaveScan software can translate this information into a customized treatment and sends it directly to the VISX STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser providing a new level of precision and accuracy with the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses.
The Benefits of CustomVue™
CustomVue provides a precise level of measurement and correction never before possible. Glasses and contacts are limited in their
ability to correct unique imperfections in each individual’s vision. In fact, thousands of individuals have the same prescription. With the CustomVue™ procedure, no two “prescriptions” are identical.
Clinical Study Results:
In addition to the possibility of improved confidence and enjoying a more active lifestyle, patients in a clinical study reported great results one year after their CustomVue procedure*:
- 100 percent could pass a driving test
- 98 percent could see 20/20 or better
- 70 percent could see better than 20/20
- Four times as many people were very satisfied with their night vision after the procedure as compared to their night vision before with glasses or contact lenses
