Many people are interested in LASIK eye surgery, and for good reason! LASIK can improve your eye vision, making it appealing to many who want a difference. However, you may be wondering if there’s an alternative, and what the difference is between traditional and customized treatment? At Mitchell Eye Center, our practice provides comprehensive and excellent care to all patients. We are here to break down what the difference is, what to know before starting your LASIK procedure.

Emphasis Traditional LASIK Surgery

Traditional LASIK surgery is a standard procedure that eye care professionals perform to correct vision and to help reduce a patient’s dependence on glasses and contacts. During the procedure, a laser is used to reshape the cornea and improve the passage of light through the eyes. It can help with different problems a patient has, including:

  • Astigmatism– When a person has a blurry vision that can occur alone or with nearsightedness/farsightedness.
  • Nearsightedness– (Myopia) Occurs when it’s easier to see objects that are closer and nearby rather than far away.
  • Farsightedness– (Hyperopia) Occurs when it’s easier to see objects that are far away rather than nearby.

Emphasis Customized LASIK Surgery

What is customized LASIK eye surgery? While traditional LASIK surgery is still customized to the needs of the patient, customized LASIK surgery includes using advanced digital scanning technology that was unavailable previously on the market. This digital scanning creates a three-dimensional image of the cornea with accuracy. With this technology, the LASIK surgeon can identify cornea imperfections that are hard to identify. Both lower order and higher-order aberrations can be treated more easily with customized LASIK surgery.

Customized LASIK not only offers accurate and effective results, but it can also be more safer than traditional LASIK surgery. Thanks for digital mapping, there is less chance for error to occur. Talk with your eye doctor or surgeon if you are qualified for a customized LASIK procedure.
