Wavefront Custom Vue
Spectrum Eye physicians uses Wavefront Custom Vue technology to create customize LASIK procedure according to each individual patient’s unique vision correction needs. Like your fingerprint, your CustomVue Map is unique to you only.
The CustomVue Map is derived from technology first developed to correct distortions of light waves from space. This allows researchers to accurately view images of stars and planets. The CustomVue Map (WaveScan) uses the same technology that was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant opjects in space. WaveScan identifies and measures imperfections in an individual’s eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses.
Without a tracking device, laser vision correction requires patients to hold their eyes perfectly still during the process. However, even a “Still” eye makes minute, involuntary movements, including slight movement with each breath. The 3D ActiveTrak follows the most specific movement instantaneously, repositioning the laser automatically to ensure laser accuracy.
The Advanced CustomVue procedure has the broadest FDA-approved, custom wavefront-guided treatments available today for individuals with myopia and hyperopia with or without astigmatism.
This procedure has been approved for treating:
- Myopia — up to 11.0 diopters of correction, with or without astigmatism up to -3 diopters
- Hyperopia — up to 3 diopters of correction with or without astigmatism up to +2 Diopters
- Mixed astigmatism up to 5 diopters
