Who Can Benefit from Custom LASIK surgery?


More than 600,000 people across the US have already experienced the life-changing results of LASIK eye surgery. But did you know there is more than one type of LASIK eye surgery? That’s why it’s important to choose a LASIK surgeon who understands your unique vision needs and can provide you with customized surgery solutions so you can get the best results.

Our Medical Director, Dr. Oday Alsheikh, MD, has made sure to invest in the latest LASIK technology, for exactly this reason. We are proud to offer Bladeless LASIK, topography-guided LASIK, and custom LASIK.

As the name suggests, one of the most popular and personalized of these options is custom LASIK surgery.

Who is custom LASIK surgery suitable for?

This type of LASIK eye surgery is usually recommended by our eye surgeons to anyone who might have a higher number of aberrations, commonly referred to as irregularities in their eyes. It can also be beneficial to patients with larger pupils, who could be at higher risk of suffering from glare and haloes at night.

How does custom LASIK surgery work?

So, how do we achieve customized LASIK surgery for each patient’s eyes? Our eye surgeons use advanced wavefront technology, which is essentially a specialized laser that shows how light travels through your eyes to create a unique 3D image unique called a wavefront map displaying measurements and any variations all the way from the front to the back of your eyes.

Custom LASIK eye surgery benefits

Custom wavefront-guided LASIK is recognized as the most advanced current laser technology as it allows your eye surgeon to digitally match the laser to your eye’s individual characteristics, so your LASIK eye surgery can be specifically customized to your vision needs.

Having fully customized LASIK surgery has significantly improved the surgical outcome for our patients who have gone through it due to its superior accuracy in correcting vision. It provides the best distance vision, improving your ability to see finer details and contrast sensitivity, as well as the freedom from glasses and contact lenses that comes with having LASIK eye surgery.

It has also proven to be very beneficial for improving night vision. FDA trials showed very clearly that there is a definite reduction in potential glare and haloes, and other issues associated with night vision by correcting vision that had higher aberrations.
