Custom Lasik Eye Surgery
Cohen Laser and Vision Center in Boca Raton offers custom Lasik eye surgery to residents of Boca, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. Procedure is performed by expert eye surgeon G. Richard Cohen, MD.
Individuals with certain conditions may not be good candidates for LASIK surgery. Qualifying patients in or near Fort Lauderdale or Boca Raton may elect to have custom LASIK instead. With conventional LASIK surgery, Dr. Cohen corrects the patient’s vision by sculpting their cornea according to their eyeglass or contact lens prescription. Custom LASIK is a second-generation LASIK procedure, which relies not on an eyewear prescription, but on a highly detailed three-dimensional map of the patient’s cornea as generated by WaveScan™ technology. The CustomVue™ procedure allows the ophthalmologist to detect irregularities of the cornea that would be overlooked with other methods. CustomVue™ individualized laser vision correction is renowned for producing amazing results. In a study conducted by the FDA, patients were tested a year after undergoing the CustomVue™ procedure. Of these, 98 percent were able to see 20/20 or better, and 70 percent could see 20/16 or better.
The CustomVue™ Advantage
With other lasers used in refractive surgery, it is often required that patients focus on a small light positioned in front of their eyes during surgery so that the laser can ablate (remove) corneal matter as effectively as possible while avoiding any mistakes in the process. With CustomVue™ technology, any eye movements are automatically tracked, and the laser is re-positioned accordingly, so that it remains trained on the treatment area. The CustomVue™ WaveScan lasik system is also superior to previous technology in that it allows for the correction of what are known as higher-order aberrations. Such deviations in the surface curvature of the cornea, untreatable with conventional LASIK surgery and other procedures, can lead to visual impairments such as glares, halos, and diminished nighttime vision. At our office in Boca Raton, near Fort Lauderdale, custom LASIK evaluations are provided free of charge.
