What makes Wavefront™ technology important?

Wavefront™ was originally designed for use in astrophysics to help detect and reduce visual aberrations in telescope lenses. When used in laser vision correction, Wavefront™ analyzes how light waves travel through your eyes, mapping out the distortions and imperfections unique to your vision. This 3D map is then saved. The computer-guided Excimer laser will correct the surface of your eyes based on the information on the 3D map. Since your own unique visual distortions are accurately assessed and precisely corrected, the possibility of achieving 20/20 vision or better is increased.

How LASIK works

LASIK (Laser-Assisted Stromal In-situ Keratomileusis) is a popular refractive surgery procedure used to treat patients suffering from myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. The procedure is a combination of keratomileusis, which involves cutting of the cornea, and Excimer laser photoablation, which uses a laser to reshape the surface of the eye. The cool ultraviolet beam of the laser delivers a preprogrammed number of pulses to correct and reshape the exposed surface of the eye. The corneal flap is then put back into place where it heals without the need for stitches.

How Epi-LASIK works

Epi-LASIK (Epithelial Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a laser vision correction procedure performed for patients who may not be good candidates for traditional LASIK. People who qualify for Epi-LASIK may have thin corneas, dry eyes, or other conditions. During the Epi-LASIK procedure, the epithelium (the thin outer layer covering the cornea) is lifted with a non-cutting instrument. The cornea is then reshaped with a laser as it would be during a normal LASIK procedure. Though the visual recovery time is generally slower than traditional LASIK, the visual outcome is the same.

When you visit Ocala Eye for a laser eye surgery consultation, one of our surgeons will review your vision correction options and discuss the risks and benefits of each procedure.

Did you know that Wavefront™ custom LASIK increases a patient’s possibilities for achieving 20/20 vision? In fact, there are some cases in which the precise mapping and cutting edge technology of custom LASIK has been able to achieve better than 20/20 vision.

"I had very poor vision and was a slave to my corrective lens since the 2nd grade.  The thought of being free from glasses and contacts with their associated chemistry kits was extremely exciting.  At my consultation, Dr. Mark Jank gave me a detailed explanation of the procedure and made me feel quite at ease- I could tell I was in good hands. I had assumed that everyone was corrected at 20/20 vision.  When Dr. Jank asked me about what I wanted from LASIK, he informed me that I had some options.  I participate in tournament archery which requires clear vision of a fiber optic sight pin on my bow and also seeing my target in the distance.  I am so grateful for Dr. Jank individualizing my LASIK treatment as I have the perfect balance of vision for participating in the sport I love.   My experience with Dr. Jank and Ocala Eye has exceeded my every expectation.

"As a Registered Nurse, I have endless reasons for choosing LASIK.  Every day I find myself leaning over patients to do assessments or start IVs.  My glasses would slide down and I would be unable to adjust them until I’d removed my gloves and washed my hands.  Reason enough, but at home I have a 17-month old daughter who loves to grab my glasses when given any opportunity.  So when it came time for my first appointment at Ocala Eye with Dr. Peter Polack I was more than ready.  Everything was so organized and professional- from the consults to my post-op relaxation time in the Zen Room.  My vision is 20/20 a month after the procedure and I’m very happy with the results.  I would recommend Ocala Eye and Dr. Polack to anyone considering LASIK surgery.
