WaveFront LASIK

Dr Andrew M. Barrett of Delaware Ophthalmology Consultants is pleased to announce the availability of Custom Vue Wavefront LASIK, by VISX. FDA approved for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and  astigmatism, Custom Vue Wavefront Laser Vision Correction has rapidly become the procedure of choice for those who are eligible for this most advanced technology.

Using techniques developed by NASA scientists for use in high-powered telescopes, a detailed analysis of your eye, known as a Wave Scan, can be obtained. This Wave Scan describes not only the refractive power of the eye, but also the higher order distortions and aberrations that limit your vision. A Wave Scan can be thought of as a 'fingerprint' of the eye. While thousands of individuals may share the same prescription for glasses or contact lenses, no two eyes share the same 'fingerprint.'

Using Wave Scan technology, the unique characteristics of your vision can be measured and a treatment plan can be developed that is customized just for you. This custom tailored approach allows more people than ever to see 20/20 after LASIK. Recent clinical trials have shown that up to 98% of participants achieved 20/20 or better vision, without glasses or contacts, when measured one year after their procedure. Seventy percent of these patients had vision better than 20/20.
