    Is LASIK Safe For Me?

    Greater Safety Through Wavefront Mapping Technology

    Amjad P. Khokhar, M.D.
    Sugar Land, TX

    Wavefront mapping has greatly improved the accuracy and safety of LASIK in recent years. Through this technology, we are able to get a perfect topography of your eye, which then enables the laser to correct each individualís eyes as accurately as possible.

    Just like a fingerprint, no two individualís eyes are exactly alike. Traditional prescriptions identify and correct aberrations in the eye on the most basic level, which is why you could easily put on someone elseís glasses and be able to see. With CustomVue, the WaveScanís "fingerprint" of the eye is completely unique to the individual. Therefore, wavefront-guided LASIK will be designed specifically for each patientís eyes, allowing for the highest level of correction.

    In 2003, clinical trials of wavefront-assisted LASIK surgery revealed that one year after surgery,

  • 94% of the study participants could see 20/20 or better
  • 74% could see 20/16 or better
  • 27% could see 20/12.5 or better.
  • nearly 70 percent had either the same or better post-op vision contacts than their best visual acuity with glasses or contacts.
  • and, four times as many participants were very satisfied with their night vision compared to their night vision with glasses or contacts.

    CustomVue LASIK is unique in that its sophisticated three-dimensional eye tracking capability helps makes sure the prescribed treatment occurs as planned, instead of being altered slightly by inadvertent eye movements.

    How do I know if Iím a good candidate for LASIK?

    Youíre eligible for a consultation is you are

  • at least 18 and have healthy eyes
  • have had stable vision (no major changes in your prescription) for at least one year
  • Free of any degenerative or autoimmune diseases, and free of any conditions that may deter or slow healing
  • Not pregnant or nursing
