Wavefront Surgery provides CustomVue Wavefront-guided LASIK
Dr. Friedman’s Optometry office is associated with Berg-Feinfield Vision Correction Centers. We perform all eye exams, all procedure set-ups and all follow up care for LASIK Vision Correction performed at these centers. We also make all the arrangements for the procedure.
Nearly everyone has heard about the incredible LASIK procedure, and many may know a family member or friend who’s had it done. LASIK, or Laser In Situ Keratomileusis, is the most popular and most advanced way to trade in your glasses or contacts for clear, natural vision.
Contrary to popular belief, not all LASIK surgeons are alike. Although having the right technology is a big part of obtaining great LASIK results, a skilled surgeon who knows how to apply the laser and customize your treatment to fit your unique needs is essential.
An experienced LASIK surgeon will be better able to measure your refractive error accurately, and therefore be more likely to find your optimum vision correction results.
At Berg·Feinfield·TLC© Vision Correction, Dr. Berg combines many years of LASIK experience to give patients the benefit of carefully honed expertise. We offer the latest version of LASIK called CustomVue Wavefront-guided LASIK. With the use of a special Wavefront device, your unique eye abnormalities are identified and evaluated with a level of precision never before achieved.
Play sports, participate in hobbies, travel easier, and save money by reducing or eliminating your dependence on glasses and contacts! Although there is no guarantee that LASIK will give you perfect vision, choosing the right LASIK surgeon can ensure you get the best results possible.
How is LASIK Performed?
First the surgeon applies a few numbing eye-drops to the eye prior to the procedure, and the surgeon marks the cornea with water-soluble ink to guide replacement of the flap.
A thin corneal flap is created using an instrument called a microkeratome. This part of the procedure is called keratectomy and makes a "flap" in the corneal tissue on the central part of the eye, which is gently folded back, exposing the underlying layers of the cornea. This flap can also be created with the use of the Intralase laser.
The surgeon then uses the excimer laser to apply a cool beam of light to gently even out the curvature of the cornea this is done with CustomVue Wavefront guided technology. The protective corneal flap is then gently placed back in its original position and begins healing immediately.
After the flap is gently laid back, a few moisturizing drops are applied to soothe your eye and speed recovery. The cross-section view of the cornea shows the reduced (flatter) corneal curvature (exaggerated for clarity).
Dr. Alan Berg specializes in post Lasik complications. If you've had Lasik or other refractive surgeries with another surgeon and are experiencing complications, please contact us to schedule a comprehensive consultation.
