What is topography-guided LASIK?

Topography-guided LASIK is a laser vision correction procedure with a greater degree of personalization designed to deliver superior results thanks to state-of-the-art technology. Eye measurements are captured and exact maps of the shape (topography) of your eyes are created, providing a unique profile of your ocular particulars and imperfections. This profile is then used to treat your corneas in a precise and safe manner during your procedure, leading to more optimal results.

 

The procedure

A topography-guided LASIK surgery is performed much in the same way as a Custom LASIK surgery. During the procedure, a protective flap is created on your cornea, produced via a specialized laser. We then utilize specialized technology to reshape your cornea, aiming to deliver better visual outcomes. The major difference between standard LASIK and topography-guided LASIK is the level of precision by which the LASIK surgeon is able to treat your eye condition(s).

 

Its advantages

Patients report several advantages after undergoing topography-guided LASIK, including:

  • Improved daytime vision, superior to alternatives such as glasses and contacts
  • Better night vision, including reduced halos and glare
  • A higher level of contrast sensitivity, leading to sharper images at varying distances

As every eye is different, topography-guided LASIK targets your specific imperfections and corrects them, leading to better vision in a number of settings.

 

Who is eligible?

Topography-guided LASIK is designed to treat a wide range of people, including those who have myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism.
