Our commitment to using the highest-quality technology available in laser eye surgery is a core part of our practice. This is why we only perform All-Laser LASIK. While standard LASIK uses a microkeratome to create the corneal flap, a femtosecond laser is used during All-Laser LASIK surgery. This technology is also known as “bladeless” or “blade-free” LASIK.
We specialize in two types of All-Laser LASIK – Custom Wavefront LASIK and Contoura LASIK.
Custom Wavefront LASIK:
This is one of the latest advancements in laser vision correction. Wavefront‑optimized technology uses two measured points on the corneal surface to limit glare and halos.
As the latest FDA-approved technology in LASIK, Contoura LASIK offers patients more advanced visual outcomes by using a high‑definition camera to map 22,000 points on the corneal surface. This map is then used to guide the laser treatment. While most patients have 20/20 vision after Contoura and Custom Wavefront LASIK, a higher number of patients achieve 20/15 vision or better after Contoura due to its precision.
Understanding LASIK Eye Surgery Technology
Both Custom Wavefront and Contoura LASIK offer exceptional visual results. Understanding the technology behind these procedures will help you decide what type of LASIK is right for you.
