CustomVue LASIK is a "specialized treatment" using the most advanced technology in the laser eye surgery industry. It allows Dr. Tyson to take laser vision correction to an entirely new, personalized level. Just like a fingerprint, each person's vision and eyes are 100% unique. Before the recent advancements in technology, doctors were only able to use standard measurement to correct vision. This new level of measurement provides 25 times more precision than with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses.
Using WaveScanTM-based digital technology, originally developed by NASA for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space, doctors can now capture unique imperfections in each individual's vision that could not have been measured before using standard methods.
The information captured precisely and accurately using the WaveScan technology is transferred to the laser electronically to avoid human error and a CustomVue LASIK treatment plan is developed. This plan will exactly match and correct your visual errors. In fact, with CustomVue LASIK many patients will actually see better than they could with glasses or contacts. Many also notice reduced glare and night vision problems versus previous corrective lenses before LASIK surgery. CustomVue LASIK has been called leading edge because it has the potential to improve not only how much you see, but also how well you can see.
