Boston Custom Wavefront LASIK, Custom Ablation
Custom Wavefront LASIK uses the most advanced technology available to change the curvature of the cornea and correct vision. Boston Custom Wavefront LASIK is performed by Dr Ernest Kornmehl. Dr Kornmehl is a foremost Boston area specialist on custom LASIK and has corrected the vision of many patients using this advanced procedure. The web page below describes custom LASIK and how it corrects and it can improve vision for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
Until now vision has been measured with lenses and categorized as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Technology has progressed to the point where fine distortions, called higher order aberrations can be measured and treated. Higher order aberrations are often the cause of night vision problems. Wavefront technology, using the advanced VISX Waveprint System, was approved in May 2003. Dr. Kornmehl has had the Waveprint System since October 2002. All patients examined for LASIK at Kornmehl Laser Eye Associates are evaluated for higher order aberrations whether or not they elect to have the data used in their treatment. With the data obtained using the Waveprint System, Dr. Kornmehl is better able to determine the appropriate course of treatment.
Recently completed FDA Trials have demonstrated that 70% of patients treated with wavefront technology by VISX had a reduction of glare and halos at night. 98% of patients treated were 20/20 or better at one year.
