Wavefront LASIK vs. standard LASIK
In past decades the main treatment for vision correction surgery was the LASIK procedure. However as with most procedures there are some associated risks. Many people who were receiving this procedure were not the right candidates. For many who had it done there were problems with thinning corneas, oddly shaped corneas, and even conditions like Keratoconus which were not correctly diagnosed during their consultations.
Then came the Wavefront LASIK. This procedure uses a computer to guide them throughout the procedure to reduce visual distortions to provide improved quality of vision.
Wavefront LASIK can be used to repair complications from prior LASIK procedures as well.
Below are some of the benefits of Wavefront LASIK:
- Can improve overall quality of vision
- Can improve night vision
- Can achieve 20/20 vision (in some cases)
- Can repair some damage from prior LASIK procedures
