Benefits of Wavefront Guided LASIK Surgery
LASIK is a powerful tool for correcting your vision, but there is always room for improvement. Dr. Michael Mazheri offers wavefront-guided LASIK at his practice in Dallas, TX, as a more accurate and refined tool for eliminating visual errors, from myopia to glares and haloes. In fact, patients who opt for this alternative to traditional LASIK can often do away with their dependence on glasses or contacts completely.
But what are the benefits of wavefront-guided LASIK? How does it build on the success of traditional LASIK?
Greater precision during surgery translates to more accurate results and longer-lasting benefits. Wavefront LASIK makes use of a device called an aberrometer to precisely map out the surface of the cornea. As a result, Dr. Mazaheri can more easily identify problem areas. The process is completely computer-guided so that there is less risk for human error. Consequently, where conventional LASIK alters in increments of 0.25 diopters, wavefront LASIK works at increments of 0.01 diopters.
Because conventional LASIK is best suited to addressing lower-order vision errors such as myopia, it can sometimes fail to account for higher-order aberrations (HOAs). As a result, the procedure can sometimes cause new HOAs like glare, halos, and compromised night vision.
In contrast, wavefront technology allows Dr. Mazaheri to more accurately evaluate the possibility of an HOA. Consequently, he is better equipped to reduce the risk of such post-surgical complications.
Compared to traditional LASIK, undergoing wavefront-guided LASIK significantly increases the odds that you will be able to forgo glasses and contact lenses altogether. This technology's high precision, custom computer mapping, and ability to correct higher-order aberrations provide better odds for visual independence.
Wavefront-guided LASIK can completely change the way you look at the world.
Because of the greater accuracy afforded by wavefront LASIK technology, Dr. Mazaheri can create a more detailed map of your eye and more precisely customize your treatment.
The benefits of wavefront LASIK are not limited to first-time patients. If you have undergone traditional LASIK but are dissatisfied with the results, wavefront-guided LASIK may be able to refine your vision further. Dr. Mazheri may be able to eliminate HOAs that resulted from traditional LASIK surgery so that you can more fully enjoy your enhanced vision.

Dr. Mazaheri did such an outstanding laser surgery on my eyes that I referred four other members of my family. We are all extremely happy with our results.
