Have you heard the various phrases like different phrases “traditional LASIK eye surgery” and “Wavefront LASIK” or “Custom LASIK eye surgery” and wondered what the difference was? That’s a good question to ask, and it’s important to have a skilled ophthalmologist like Dr. Mutyala to help you learn which procedure best suits your individual needs.
Wavefront-Guided Custom LASIK differs from traditional LASIK surgery in that it brings a higher level of measurement to the diagnosis of subtle eye distortions than just the general “nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism” notations. Custom LASIK laser vision correction is an exciting, new procedure that incorporates WaveScan wavefront technology to create a highly effective, personalized treatment plan for each individual patient. Traditional LASIK laser vision correction achieves great results for certain candidates but is not nearly as precise as Custom LASIK would be for those who would benefit from this higher level of personalization.
In addition, Custom LASIK WaveFront technology has the potential to improve not only the prescription of your vision (i.e. the visual acuity measured by the standard 20 / 20 eye chart), but also the quality of how well you can see in terms of contrast sensitivity and fine vision. However, not everyone has these “higher order aberrations,” as they’re called. Higher order aberrations account for only 10% or less of the total refractive error of the average person’s eye. That’s why Dr. Mutyala can help determine which category you personally fall into: those who would best benefit from WaveFront Custom LASIK, and those for whom traditional LASIK eye surgery will serve very well.
