Wavefront LASIK

What you should know about LASIK and CustomVue™ WaveFront LASIK

LASIK is the most popular, effective, and advanced method available for surgical correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Over one million LASIK procedures have been performed in the United States alone.

CustomVue wavefront LASIK is tailored to your individual eyes.

Not only will you be freed from full-time use of eyeglasses or contact lenses, you will enjoy improved vision quality.

CustomVue wavefront analysis uses a patented technology, originally developed to reduce distortions in high-powered telescopes, to create a custom "map" of each eye while measuring imperfections 25 times more precisely than standard methods.

The result is a new level of precision and accuracy: 98% of patients achieve vision of 20/20 or better.

Are you a candidate? Since CustomVue treatment was FDA approved for treatment of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. 94% of all laser vision correction candidates have been found to be eligible for the CustomVue procedure.

INTRALASE FS LASER

I can now offer my patients the all Laser CustomVue LASIK procedure utilizing the Intralase FS Laser. Instead of using a mechanical blade to make the LASIK flap, this revolutionary laser can be used. The rapid pulses of the laser allows for an even more precise and predictable flap

Benefits
LASIK surgery can dramatically reduce or even eliminate a person's dependence on glasses and contact lenses.

Procedure
LASIK surgery takes only a few minutes per eye, and in most cases can be done on both eyes at the same time. Eye drops are all that are required for anesthesia.

Recovery
After LASIK, patients usually notice significantly improved vision immediately. Eye drops are prescribed for use during the first few days after surgery, and vision usually stabilizes within several days. Postoperative pain is usually limited to a scratchy sensation that lasts a few hours. Most patients return to work within 24 hours.

Contraindications
While serious complications are extremely rare, there are risks that need to be considered when contemplating any surgical procedure. Dr. Kraft will take the time to thoroughly discuss the risks and benefits of the LASIK procedure with you. He will advise you if you are a good candidate—or, in rare cases, advise you against the procedure because of existing eye conditions or other health problems.
