STANDARD LASIK vs CUSTOM LASIK
LASIK Treatment Steps
1. Flap Creation
The bladeless method for corneal flap creation replaces the hand-held microkeratome blade historically used in the first step of LASIK. The computer-guided, ultrafast excimer laser virtually eliminates almost all of the most severe, sight-threatening LASIK complications related to microkeratomes1. The bladeless excimer laser also creates an optimal surface below the flap, allowing better visual outcomes.
2. LASIK Treatment
This is the conventional one-size-fits-all LASIK correction method which can correct vision problems such as Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism.
We have a range of Customised LASIK treatments available at our clinic. Quality of vision after Customised LASIK is better than Standard LASIK especially if one is in dim light conditions and if one has higher astigmatism.
All Customised LASIK treatments includes a mapping with iris registration that allows for each LASIK procedure to be customised for each individual. The iris registration can capture unique imperfections in each individual’s eye, linking diagnoistic information with the LASIK treatment. Iris registration reads the specific characteristics of the iris to accurately align each Customised LASIK treatment to provide precise and accurate LASIK correction.
The Wavefront technology measures the whole eye optics and performs customised corrections of eye irregularities including more complex visual errors within the eye which are over and above common vision problems such as Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism.
Corneal Topography maps the surface curvature of the cornea and performs customised corrections of corneal abnormalities. This treatment is recommended for those with corneal abnormalities like cornea scarring, irregular corneas.
