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.
