Custom wavefront ablation is a modification of conventional Laser Vision Correction. All of the eye’s unique visual errors are first measured and then downloaded into the laser for subsequent treatment with LASIK or PRK. Laser vision correction has traditionally provided the same type of correction as spectacles or contact lenses by permanently treating myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Recent studies have revealed that additional subtle visual errors (called “higher order aberrations”) limit eyesight and may contribute to night glare and halos. Correcting these aberrations may improve visual outcomes after laser vision correction. The Erdey Searcy Eye Group welcomes the opportunity to discuss how individuals may benefit from this technological step forward in refractive surgery.
