Can the results of Laser Eye Surgery be predicted?

10 Apr 2014

Laser Eye Surgery is one of Northern Ireland’s most popular elective procedures, and at Optilase thousands of patients have already undergone the minimally invasive procedure and now enjoy waking up with perfect clear vision every day.

At Optilase, we understand the importance of eyesight and the significance Laser Eye Surgery can have on a person’s daily life, which is we offer a free, no-obligation consultation to take you through the process step-by-step.

Each person’s eyes are unique and at our clinics in Belfast, Newry and Derry/Londonderry we offer customized WaveFront Laser Eye Surgery to best serve your vision needs.

Choosing the perfect Laser Eye Surgery for my prescription

Depending on your individual refractive error, your glasses or contact lens prescription will read either plus or minus.

A plus prescription relates to hyperopia or long sightedness, which affects near vision, whereas a minus prescription records myopia or short sightedness which affects distance vision.

Your glasses or contact lens prescription is measured in diopters and increase in 0.25D increments, which can result in a prescription over or under compensating your eyesight.

Advanced CustomVue WaveFront at Optilase Northern Ireland offers patients a totally tailored prescription reading and a 100% customized Laser Eye Surgery treatment to exactly match your eyesight error.

How Advanced CustomVue WaveFront works

This type of Laser Eye Surgery at Optilase Northern Ireland allows for very predictable outcomes in eyes with refractive errors.

A patient’s refractive error is measured by transmitted a ray(s) of light into each eye, which is then reflected off the retina located at the back of the eye.

This returned light is captured and analyzed using WaveScan technology to generate a 3-D map of each eye and their totally unique visual irregularities.

This complex 3-D map is programmed into the laser which proceeds to precisely replicate it in the cornea to one billionth of an inch, making Advanced CustomVue WaveFront the most accurate of Laser Eye Surgery procedures.

To find out more about Advanced CustomVue WaveFront at Optilase Northern Ireland, schedule a free consultation in Belfast, Newry or Londonderry/Derry on 08000 121 565.
