Custom Lasik surgery is also called Wavefront-Guided Lasik. It is a procedure that makes use of 3-dimensional measurements to show how the eye processes images. The 3D images serve as a guide to the laser re-shaping of the cornea.
Custom Lasik is preferred by many since the wavefront measurement system is very precise and the outcome is an individualized vision correction, which is very different from traditional Lasik surgery or standard prescription glasses. Aside from being very unique and individualized, here are the other benefits of custom Lasik:
Wavefront technology helps to improve visual acuity (how much a person can see) and contrast sensitivity (how well a person can see the fine details)

Custom Lasik is one of the procedures most patients ask about and request for. It is of utmost importance to see a registered professional if you are interested in getting custom Lasik. As with the traditional Lasik procedure, it takes quite a number of tests to know if a patient is qualified to undergo custom Lasik and there are still many doctors’ orders to follow after surgery has been performed. And of course, it is important to note that there may be variations in the cost of a procedure between traditional and custom Lasik based on royalty fees charged by the laser manufacturing companies..
