Information on the Wavefront LASIK Eye Surgery

There are a few different types of the LASIK eye surgery that are available, one being the Wavefront LASIK eye surgery. Wavefront LASIK eye surgery aims to achieve better vision than standard laser treatment and reduces or completely eliminates the need for glasses or contact lenses.

The Wavefront LASIK eye surgery is basically custom, as it replaces the “one treatment fits all” ideal that was had with laser eye surgery beforehand.

This is a big advantage to patients who have larger sized pupils and poor night time vision, for instance, as the optical performance of the eye is measured and each and every place on the cornea, and not just done the same way for all patients.

Most patients receive more than satisfactory results and benefit with sharper vision, and one of the most major reasons this eye surgery works so well is due to the iris recognition that takes place here. The Nidek OPD, which is the machine used for this procedure, is very precise in regards to locking onto the eye to be able to digitally map tiny sections of the cornea and then instruct the laser to target the same area accordingly.

This involves seriously advanced technology, which patients suffering from vision problems can most certainly appreciate.

Another major factor behind the ingeniousness of this surgery lies in the high speed tracking that is used. Optimax uses the fastest tracker of any laser used in eye treatment today, so you know that you are going to be getting nothing than the very best results when you go for your Wavefront surgery.

There is also the fact that tissue is spared as much as possible, whereas the same cannot be said for the basic laser eye surgery. With Wavefront, only precise amounts of tissue are removed from parts of the cornea that need it, rather than taking it off from the whole of the eye.

Cost and Results

The majority of people that go through with the Wavefront LASIK eye surgery have nothing but good things to say about it, although there are a few that had problems develop afterwards. You are going to have to be aware that the cost of the Wavefront LASIK eye surgery is even more than that of the basic laser eye surgery cost, and so you will need to be prepared to pay this.

If you think that Wavefront may be for you, you will need to speak to your doctor to get more information and find out whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure.
