Our LASIK Evaluation follows a methodical process to optomize your success. Initially you will meet with us for a complete evaluation consisting of a medical and eye history and medical evaluation to determine whether you are a candidate for the CustomVue procedure. We will discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure with you. A WaveScan analysis will be taken to map the unique characteristics of your eye. With this map, your doctor will be able to:
Accurately assess whether you’re a good candidate for laser vision correction. Anyone who is considering the most advanced form of LASIK, laser vision correction should obtain a WaveScan measurement.
Along with the other diagnostic tests that we perform, an individualized treatment plan can then be developed to address your unique vision needs.
Once it is confirmed that you are a good candidate, your doctor will schedule you for a CustomVue procedure. We will provide details to you on how to prepare for the day of the procedure. The amazing fact is that the procedure generally takes less than 5 minutes in skilled hands!
