Wavefront LASIK Analysis is a new way to measure how the eye focuses light. It is a major innovation that provides Dr. Tanchel with more precise, comprehensive data on the patients visual performance. We use wavefront analysis for precise LASIK vision.
Wavefront data goes beyond Snellen acuity that is read on an eye chart, and brings vision correction technology into the 21st century. By utilizing this data, vision can be optimized to be generally sharper, as well as clearer in dim light. We use wavefront analysis to perform precise LASIK vision correction.
Measurements are taken with the Nidek OPD-scan. Multiple detailed maps are compiled which describe the optical performance of the eye. This information is used to guide the laser treatment. When coupled with the Z-LASIK flap, which decreases flap related wavefront aberrations, there is no more accurate treatment available. Wavefront analysis leads to precise LASIK vision correction. Patient comfort is also of paramount importance; the Nidek OPD-scan collects a vast amount of information very quickly – in seconds. The fast data collection makes it easy for patients and very comfortable.
The measurements also help us to perform the newer, topography guided all-laser LASIK. It is the only way to improve your night vision, so it can be better after LASIK than before with your glasses or contacts. It’s a true advance in LASIK that you can enjoy for a lifetime of better vision.
