New York Laser Vision Correction
Wavefront technology was originally pioneered in the field of
astronomy and physics to aid in reducing "aberrations"
or imperfections in the multiple lenses of telescopes.
In much the same way, we use LADARWave® to provide us
with an accurate assessment of the optical imperfections
found in the entire eye's optical system.
Laser Site is the first in Upstate New York to offer
CUSTOMCORNEA® utilizing LADARWave® wavefront technology
to measure and address both lower and higher order aberrations
(visual imperfections in the eye's optical system).
Unless both lower and higher order aberrations are addressed
during laser vision correction, the quality of your
vision may not be ideal, even if you have post-operative
vision of 20/20.
is how this exciting technology works:
Flat light waves enter eye
Distorted light wave exits eye
flat waves of light are passed through your eye using
a computerized wavefront-measuring instrument called
LADARWave®. As the light waves travel through your eye's
optical system, the imperfections in the eye distort
the flat light waves. LADARWave® captures them to the
perfectly flat light waves that would have been reflected
if your optical system had no distortions.
Higher order abberation
a 3-D map is generated representing your unique visual
distortions, including both lower and higher order aberrations.
This map is then transferred to the LADARVision® 4000
Excimer Laser, and guides the laser as it reshapes your
cornea, providing you with a truly customized laser
vision procedure called CUSTOMCORNEA®.
