Q: Should I have a Custom Lasik Eye Surgery Treatment or a Conventional Treatment?
A: The best treatment for you depends on the measurements we take from the Aberrometer and your other clinical measurements and vision complaints. This will indicate the presence and severity of aberrations, or distortions, which will necessitate a Custom Laser Eye Surgery treatment. You may have specific complaints that are related to the optical aberrations that are not corrected by your current glasses or contact lenses. Finally, Custom Laser Eye Surgery is usually indicated for anyone who has had previous corneal surgery.

Q: Why should I have Custom Lasik Eye Surgery when conventional Lasik Eye Surgery worked fine for my friends?
A: Conventional Lasik Eye Surgery has provided excellent results for literally millions of people. However, if you are a patient who has unusual aberrations not readily corrected by conventional Lasik Eye Surgery, customized laser eye surgery is the best choice for you. The best thing to do is to come in for a Consultation and together, the Lasik surgeon and you, can determine which treatment option is necessary and best suited for your individual needs.

Q: What is the real difference between conventional Laser Eye Surgery and Custom Lasik Eye Surgery?
A: Conventional Laser Eye Surgery treats the vast majority of common optical aberrations called "lower order" aberrations. These are responsible for causing nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Custom Lasik Eye Surgery provides a more precise treatment for patients who have "higher order" aberrations, which we can now measure with the Aberrometer. For these patients, customized laser eye surgery may provide a better quality of vision by measuring and addressing all of these aberrations as part of the treatment plan.

Q: Why is Custom Lasik sometimes more expensive?
A: Custom Lasik represents the application of advanced technology to conventional Lasik Eye Surgery and may provide a better quality of vision by measuring and addressing visual distortions that previously could not even be measured. Our practices have incorporated the advanced measurement technology, the Aberrometer measurement system, and the Custom Lasik Laser Eye Surgery software necessary to provide these treatments. This advanced technology adds a modest cost but may deliver the best vision quality.
