Custom LASIK Laser Eye Surgery for Vision Problems like Nearsightedness, Farsightedness, and Astigmatism
Over 10 million people in the United States have already benefited from the life-changing results of LASIK Eye Surgery. Every year more and more patients choose to undergo this laser eye surgery, making LASIK the most popular vision correction procedure in the world. However, you may be curious as to what vision problems can be treated with LASIK and even custom LASIK laser eye surgery.
At NeoVision Eye Center, our team is dedicated to providing all our patients access to the safest, most advanced LASIK technology and equipment available. With over 20 years of experience and state-of-the-art technology, our ophthalmologists take laser vision correction a step further with Custom LASIK Eye Surgery.
What is Custom LASIK Laser Eye Surgery?
For years, standard LASIK was the only option for patients struggling with vision issues. The traditional LASIK method corrects refractive errors based only on your level of vision prescription. This means everyone with the same prescription receives the same LASIK treatment.
With Custom Lasik laser eye surgery, we can deliver custom vision correction results based on your unique needs. Our ophthalmologists will get detailed measurements of the shape of your corneas, and conduct an in-depth analysis of your refractive errors. This innovative technology provides us with unparalleled insight and allows our eye surgeons to customize your LASIK laser procedure specifically for your vision problems.
What Vision Problems Does Custom LASIK Correct?
If you’re struggling to see clearly and rely on corrective eyewear like contact lenses or glasses, Custom LASIK may be the permanent solution for you. As leaders in refractive laser eye surgery, the LASIK surgeons at NeoVision Eye Center provide advanced care in treating a number of common vision problems.
Nearsightedness is a common vision disorder that makes faraway objects appear blurry. This vision issue is a result of your cornea curving more sharply than normal, causing your retina to focus light rays incorrectly and blurring your distant vision.
With Custom LASIK technology we can obtain advanced diagnostic information that allows us to correct corneal irregularities such as myopia. During your LASIK procedure, your surgeon uses a computer-guided laser to create a small flap in the lens of your eye. Your eye surgeon then gently reshapes your corneal tissue based on the diagnostic mapping of your eye. This allows your retina to focus light rays correctly resulting in clearer nearsighted vision.
Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, is another very common vision disorder. Patients with hyperopia struggle to focus on objects close-up, making them appear blurry or fuzzy. This is caused by your cornea not being curved enough to properly allow your retina to focus light correctly and distorting your near vision.
If you suffer from hyperopia, your LASIK surgeon will need to steepen the curvature of your cornea. With computer-guided laser precision, your ophthalmologist will lengthen your cornea, improving the focusing power of your retina to provide improved farsighted vision.
Patients who struggle with astigmatism experience blurry vision that affects their ability to see clearly at near and far distances. Astigmatism occurs when your cornea is unsymmetrically shaped – kind of like an egg – instead of having a symmetrical curve – like a round ball.
With Custom LASIK laser eye surgery, your surgeon reshapes your cornea based on the ultra-precise measurements established during our diagnostic analysis. By evening the shape of your cornea, you will experience much clearer vision quality at all distances.
