WaveScan technology is an advanced method used to collect information about your eye and guide your laser vision correction. This technology was originally developed for viewing distant objects in space – in fact, the WaveScan was used in the Hubble Telescope. This technology has since been adapted for use in performing laser eye surgery and has been highly successful, offering precise results that, to date, no other equipment has come close to matching.
WaveScan treatments work by accurately measuring imperfections in the eye and designing a personalized correction plan for the patient, which is then transferred to the laser that will be used in surgery. Typically, WaveScan-assisted surgical results are up to 25 times more effective than standard laser eye surgery results!
With WaveScan technology, your laser eye surgery can be completely individualized to suit your needs.
Preparing for Surgery
First, you will meet with us for a complete medical exam and eye history evaluation; this will determine if you are a good candidate for custom LASIK using the WaveScan. To qualify, your prescription must be between 0 and 12 diopters if you have myopia and less than 6 diopters is you have astigmatism.
After determining your prescription, we will use WaveScan to map your vision and identify refractive errors. Based on the results, we will verify your candidacy and design a completely individualized laser treatment plan to be used during surgery.
