We offer CustomVue, wavefront guided treatment to almost all our patients. The standard treatments, while good, represent older, less precise ways of reshaping the cornea. Without CustomVue, we cannot utilize the iris registration program, which allows us to precisely align the laser treatment and uniquely identify our patients by the laser. This alignment ensures a great result and takes into acount the shifting of the pupil when the pupil gets smaller. I can tell you, the smoothness of the surface after the laser is applied, is truly remarkable. While our older laser was good, the VisX Star S4 with iris registrationis a quantum leap forward, so much so that we recommend it in most instances.

All lasers treat major imperfections of the eye, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Yet there are other irregularities that we notice most in the dark. For example, when we drive at night, we notice that the headlights of oncoming cars are not distinct, small points of light, but are instead rather indistinct, appearing to flare and spread. What causes this phenomenon? Our pupils enlarge - or dilate - at night, and the edges of our lens and cornea contribute more to the images we see. These edges make lights appear to flare and spread.

These irregularities are also known as higher order aberrations. What makes the VisX laser and its component CustomVue laser system so remarkable is its ability to provide treatment which corrects these aberrations in addition to nearsightedness
