Custom LASIK

Custom LASIK: Individualized vision correction:

Description:
Custom LASIK is a procedure that involves the use of a wave-front analyzer which enables your surgeon to customize the conventional LASIK procedure to your individual eye. This customized procedure can result in patients seeing clearer and sharper than ever before.

The distinction between LASIK and Custom LASIK:
Custom LASIK uses equipment called the wave-front analyzer (aberrometer) to accurately measure the way light travels through the eye. The resulting map of the eye is then programmed into the laser, and the laser treats the eye based on the personalized 3-D map.

Bathinda Lasik Laser Centre is a pioneer in the use of Custom LASIK in India.Conventional refractive surgery such as LASIK or PRK only treats lower order aberrations like Defocus (Myopia, Hypermetropia) and Astigmatism. It is well known that there is a potential to induce higher order aberrations of 3rd, 4th, 5th order.

Custom corneal ablation can treat lower order aberrations, but it also has the potential to resolve higher order aberrations such as Coma, Trefoil and others

Custom corneal ablation is a combination of two components:

1. Aspheric Ablation
to preserve the prolate shape of the cornea & to decrease the risk for induced spherical aberrations and night symptoms of glare and halos.

2. Multipoint ablation

Using a 1mm spot to treat and irregularity component.

Custom corneal ablation may be performed for primary cases or for enhancement treatments. Criteria that a refractive surgeon should consider for performing custom ablations are :-

  • Primary laser refractive surgery patients with higher order (RMS > 0.5m) aberrations.
  • Previous refractive surgery patients with induced higher order aberrations.
  • Clinically significant visual symptoms of glare or halos that reduce visual acuity.
