Wavefront Technology using the VISX STAR S4 Wavescan captures unique imperfections in each individual’s vision that could not have been measured before using standard methods for glasses and contact lenses.

Wavefront Technology Your eye is as individual as your fingerprint, with its own special shape and complex characteristics. Wavefront measurement provides 25-times more precision than standard measurements for glasses and contact lenses. Wavefront technology provides a custom tailored laser eye surgery for the unique characteristics of each individual’s vision. The wavefront digital information is transferred to the laser, providing the highest level of precision and accuracy available for Personlized Laser Vision Correction.

VISX CustomVue LASIK Surgery involves tailoring the excimer laser treatment to very small visual irregularities. These are called higher order aberrations that are specific to each person. Custom Wavefront LASIK technology utilizes information from corneal topography maps, and from an instrument called an aberometer (also called a wavefront analyzer) to provide a personalized treatment for your eyes.



For CustomVue Wavefront LASIK Surgery we need:

(1) a measuring device such as a wavefront analysis system that provides a reading of the sphere, cylinder and the higher-order aberrations of the eye,

(2) a very fast eye tracker,

(3) a small-spot, scanning laser and

(4) a computer that integrates the diagnostic data with the laser Wavefront data.
