What is it for?

Trying to improve on the optical imperfections of your eye beyond that which glasses alone can correct.

 

When is this done?

Before surgery.

 

What actually happens?

The measurement obtained from Wavefront Aberrometry is combined with the prescription in your glasses using software that delivers a customised shape change to the cornea.

 

How does it feel?

N/A.

 

What does it do?

Wavefront guided treatments usually (but not always) result in better outcomes. It is still an evolving field – some Wavefront guided treatments actually work less well than the standard treatments on the same laser. Asking surgeons to provide data on the relative benefit of Wavefront Guided treatment is recommended as often these are provided at a premium.

 

How does it benefit you?

The potential benefits of some Wavefront Guided systems include:

  • Greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision.

  • Greater chance of achieving better than 20/20 vision.

  • Reduced chance of losing best corrected vision.

  • Reduced chance of losing visual quality or contrast sensitivity.

  • Reduced chance of night vision disturbances and glare.

  • Increased ability to restore best corrected vision if healing problems develop.
