Wavefront and Custom Lasik

The Fingerprint Of Your Vision?

Your vision is unique ­ as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. The Wave Scan Wavefront System provides your eye doctor with a WavePrint Map.

The WavePrint? Map

Now, for the first time, the WavePrint Map provides information on more than just the corneal surface of your eye. It reveals the way your entire optical system processes light. The WavePrint Map provides a new level of diagnostic information previously unavailable to the doctor.

Using this information, your doctor can:
Accurately assess whether you're a good candidate for laser vision correction. Anyone who is considering laser vision correction should obtain a WavePrint Map as the first step.
Along with the other diagnostic tests that your doctor performs, a personalized treatment plan can then be developed to address your unique vision needs.

The WavePrint Map: From the cosmos to your eye doctor's office

The WavePrint Map is derived from technology first developed to correct distortions of light waves from space. This allowed researchers to accurately view images of stars and planets. The WavePrint Map uses the same technology to measure light waves as they travel through your eye. This technology provides a precise and more detailed analysis of your vision.
