Chances are, several of your friends or family members are experiencing the joys of living without glasses and contact lenses as a result of laser vision correction. You’ve heard the excitement in their voice, noticed the boost in their confidence levels, and watched the quality of their lives improve with new-found freedoms. Millions of Americans are enjoying these life-enhancing benefits and million more, just like you, are exploring the procedure that could free them from the worries of glasses and contact lenses.

 

VISX CustomVue Improves The View Of Laser Vision Correction

CustomVue Individualized Laser Vision Correction was developed by VISX, the company recognized worldwide for bringing innovation and breakthrough technology to laser vision correction. With CustomVue, a new standard in laser vision correction is established, providing a precise level of measurement and correction never before possible.

Using WaveScan® – based digital technology, originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space, doctors can now identify, measure, and correct imperfections in an individual’s eyes 25 times more precisely than with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. This information is transferred to the laser, providing a new level of precision and accuracy.

 

Reach The Full Potential Of Your Vision – Your Personal Best Vision

Just like a fingerprint, each person’s vision is 100 percent unique to their eyes. Before the recent advancement in technology, doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision, meaning that prescription could only provide a certain level of correction regardless of an individual’s needs.

Now, VISX CustomVue can measure and correct the unique imperfection of each individual’s vision and provide him or her with the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses – Personal Best Vision.

Taking The Mystery Out Of Laser Vision Correction

The laser vision correction process begins with a consultation with your doctor where a patient can learn about the technology and the procedure.

An evaluation follows to assess a patient’s overall health and to measure and create a detailed and unique map of their eyes. Once it’s confirmed that an individual is a good candidate for laser vision correction, the procedure should be scheduled.

On the day of the procedure, anesthetic drops are placed into the patient’s eyes. The patient’s unique correction information is transferred from the WaveScan to the laser. Laser Vision Correction works by gently reshaping the cornea with the cool beam from the laser to remove microscopic amounts of tissue – less than the thickness of a human hair in most cases – to create a new curvature. The procedure typically takes several seconds and the majority of individuals feel no discomfort. Many patients notice immediate results after CustomVue and vision continues to improve over several days. Routine follow-up visits complete the process.

 

Great Results By Day And By Night

One year after the CustomVue procedure, patients in a clinical study reported these great results with glasses and contact lenses:

100% could pass a driving test
98% could see 20/20 or better
70% could see better than 20/20

In the clinical study, four times as many people were very satisfied with their night vision after the procedure and compared to their night vision before with glasses or contact lenses.

 

Clear Vision – Anytime, Anywhere!

VISX® lasers have been used to perform millions of laser vision correction procedures in the U.S. and around the world. If you’re over the age of 21, and are nearsighted and/or astigmatic, you may be a candidate for the CustomVue procedure.

The first step is to contact us to schedule a doctor’s consultation. During the consultation you can review the details of the technology and the procedure and be that much closer to living your best life with your Personal Best Vision.
