Until recently, ophthalmologists treated patients strictly based on their optical prescription despite the fact that their eyes each have a unique set of naturally occurring optical imperfections. This is known as conventional LASIK.
MidWest EyeCenter offers Custom LASIK in Cincinnati, Ohio
Our patients know the MidWest EyeCenter offers the best technologies for Custom LASIK in Cincinnati, Ohio and the Tri-state area. Today with the advent of Wavefront diagnostic technology, Wavefront-guided excimer lasers can now treat patients according to the uniqueness of their entire optical system, not just their prescription.
Wavefront technology compares distorted waves of light exiting the eye to flat waves of light that would have returned in a perfect optical system. This information is converted to a 3-D map that then serves as a guide for the excimer laser while reshaping the cornea.
Results have shown that Custom LASIK can reduce some of the unwanted visual effects associated with conventional LASIK: especially those associated with night vision such as glare and halos. Custom LASIK has the potential to improve the quality of vision and make patients see even better than they could have with glasses or contact lenses.
