LASIK has been a popular eye surgery since its inception in 1989, and Dr Rick Wolfe, the laser eye surgery specialist at VISTAeyes, has been performing LASIK in Melbourne for over 25 years. How do you know you’re getting the real LASIK and not a procedure that sounds similar? What are the benefits of Customised LASIK surgery? Read on to find out.
What is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK uses two highly specialised lasers: one to create the corneal ‘flap’ and the other, called the ‘excimer laser’ which corrects irregularities on the cornea surface, making it smoother to improve your vision.
Custom LASIK Eye Surgery
Customised or Custom LASIK is the very latest range of treatments in laser eye technology. Custom LASIK takes into consideration both your prescription as well as the eye’s individual characteristics including corneal irregularities. State-of-the-art technology maps the surface of your cornea and pinpoints any irregularities that are impeding your vision. This, in conjunction with prescription data, allows for improvement of your overall vision by reshaping of the cornea with – literally! – laser-precision.
Benefits of Custom LASIK Surgery in Melbourne
Benefits of Custom LASIK surgery include:
- Your cornea will be reshaped and smoothed according to both your prescription requirements and mapped corneal irregularities – giving you optimal results
- Both eyes can undergo treatment on the same day
- No stitches are required
- You can resume normal activities, such as driving the following day.
Another great benefit of Custom LASIK is that it is only a consultation away!
