LASIK is one of the best methods used for refractive eye surgery. LASIK has helped many people suffering from Myopia (Near-sightedness), Hyperopia (Far-sightedness), & Astigmatism. The LASIK surgery only takes 15 minutes on an average and your eyesight starts to recover almost immediately. For people suffering from distance-vision problems and want to get rid of their glasses & contact lenses, LASIK is one of the best option available nowadays.
Cost of LASIK surgery:
The cost of LASIK surgery is not the same for all patients, so it would be best to reach out for a check-up which will give you an idea of the cost of your LASIK treatment.

What is CustomVue Technology?
CustomVue Technology is an FDA-Approved technology, that combines innovative technologies like WaveScan WaveFront™, Pentacam, and IR Excimer Laser for the laser vision correction procedure. The combination of such technologies helps the laser vision correction process to customize the treatment accordingly to the characteristics of each unique eye.
CustomVue technology treats vision-related problems like Myopia, Hyperopia, & Astigmatism way more effectively than any other technologies present now. It is a very safe and effective technology compared to most other eye surgery treatments available nowadays.
Corneal Topography by Pentacam:
Pentacam is a combination of a Slit Illumination System and a Scheimpflug Camera. Both the Slit Illumination System and the Scheimpflug Camera rotate together around to create an image of your eye. This way the slit-camera device generates a series of radially oriented images of the anterior eye segment. Radially oriented images are produced by Slit Camera Device.
With a combination of these images, a 3D image of your eye is developed which will provide the data required for the surgery.
What does Pentacam do?
Pentacam makes a 3D photo of your eye which helps the surgeon to analyze the elevations in the center of your cornea.
WaveScan WaveFront™ System:
Every eye has its own unique characteristics just like a fingerprint. Hence, the same type of strategy can’t be used for every eye. To overcome this challenge the WaveScan WaveFront™ is used.
WaveScan WaveFront™ captures each unique imperfection in your eye with maximum precision. The system processes those imperfections and creates a map of your optical system. Then the system converts the information into personalized digital treatment instructions. Those instructions are then sent and processed by VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System for the further treatment process.
IR Excimer Laser:
The VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System is the latest technology of VISX technology. This advancement in technology took eye-surgery treatment to another level.
How does it VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System work?
After integrating all the information from the WaveScan WaveFront™ system, a cool beam of ultraviolet light is emitted by Excimer Laser to remove the top layer of the cornea. The wavelength of the beam is typically near to 193 nanometers. As the corneal flap is removed, the cornea is restored in the right way and the flap is neatly placed back in its spot. This system is the best laser treatment for Myopia, Hyperopia, and Astigmatism.
