Optimizing "Your Personal Best Vision" - CustomVue Technology
Using the measurements and correction technologies of the CustomVue procedure, All Saints Eye Center located in Naples, Bonita Springs, and Fort Myers can develop an individualized laser vision correction plan that addresses your individual needs.
The VISX CustomVue procedure utilizes the WaveScan® measurement device to map the entire optical path of your eye. The resulting WavePrint® map produces a "fingerprint of your vision," providing your certified Fort Myers LASIK Surgeon with a precise and detailed guide for how to best improve your vision. "This enables us to correct your eyesight so that you get the best possible vision," says Dr, Zimm. "In many cases, patients see better than 20/20 following a CustomVue treatment"
Individualized LASIK Plans with the VISX Laser Technology
Laser vision correction can now be tailored to the unique characteristics of your eyes thanks to advanced technology developed by VISX, Incorporated, the worldwide leader in laser vision correction, and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
"Like a fingerprint, the vision of every eye is unique," says Fort Myers LASIK Surgeon, Jeffrey Zimm, M.D. "The VISX CustomVue procedure uses state-of-the-art technology to measure the unique characteristics of your eyes. Based on a sophisticated map of the eye, we can customize a unique correction that is tailor-made to your vision."
By specifically addressing the unique imperfections of your vision, the VISX CustomVue procedure can help you achieve your "personal best vision," without contact lenses or glasses. Results from a clinical study have confirmed the safety and effectiveness of the CustomVue procedure, and demonstrated that it can potentially produce better vision than previously possible with contact lenses or glasses.
At the heart of the CustomVue procedure is the VISX WaveScan® can system. The WavesScan is 25 times more precise measuring visual imperfections than the technology commonly used to prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses.
"The WaveScan system produces a detailed map of the eye. The digital information is transferred to the STAR S4 Excimer Laser System," explains Dr. Zimm. "This provides a new level of precision and accuracy for optimizing each patient's vision based on their specific needs."
CustomVue: An FDA-Approved Procedure
The safety and effectiveness of the CustomVue procedure is underscored by the results of a clinical study conducted by VISX, Incorporated for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
According to results from the FDA study, at one year after the procedure, 100 percent of the people whose vision was corrected with the CustomVue procedure could pass driving test without glasses or contact lenses. Ninety-eight percent of the people treated with CustomVue had 20/20 or better vision at one year after the procedure, and 70 percent of those people could actually see better than 20/20 -without glasses or contact lenses.
Millions of people worldwide are already enjoying the benefits of Vision by VISX, including thousands of eye doctors and their staff members. And so can you. The Laser Vision Correction process is a lot easier than you may think.
After the Procedure
Vision usually improves immediately after treatment for most patients, although it's normal that some patients may experience small visual changes during the first several months. Two or three days of rest is recommended before returning to work.
