CustomVue iLASIK laser vision correction is an exciting procedure that incorporates several cutting-edge technologies: WaveScan wavefront technology, the patented and FDA-approved VISX laser, and the IntraLase iFS femtosecond laser. The end result is a highly effective, personalized treatment plan for patients. Without custom, wavefront-guided LASIK, doctors must rely on one-size-fits-all, traditional laser vision correction, which achieves great results but is not nearly as precise as CustomVue. In fact, our practice in Dallas, Texas, can achieve custom LASIK results that are up to 25 times more accurate than traditional LASIK!

PRK is performed using the same wavefront-guided excimer laser technology as LASIK. In both PRK and LASIK, the excimer laser removes a precise amount of corneal tissue in order to refocus images and provide clear vision. The primary difference between PRK and LASIK is the location on the eye where the laser treatment is applied. In LASIK, a flap is made in the cornea first and then the treatment is applied under that flap. In PRK, no flap is made, the treatment is simply applied to the surface of the eye. A consultation will help to determine which procedure is best for your eyes.Learn More About PRK

What If I Have Been Told I Am “Too Nearsighted” for LASIK or PRK? Some patients are not candidates for LASIK or PRK due to the severity of their nearsightedness. At Cornea Associates of Texas, our surgeons are proud tp offer these patients an alternative: the phakic intraocular lens. These lenses are placed in front of your natural lens to correct your vision, and you may be a candidate if you have been told you are “too nearsighted” for LASIK.
