For decades, LASIK has been offering people an alternative to contacts and glasses — and the technology behind it has continued to advance, along with the results.
Have you ever seen a field of wildflowers in vivid color? Do your eyes allow you to appreciate the thrilling motion of crashing waves? If you want to experience the world in its full, exhilarating beauty, you may be in the right place. The WaveLight® LASIK vision correction system is known for its accuracy and for the crisp, clear vision it produces. And because life moves quickly, it’s also the fastest LASIK option available. In fact, more patients are treated on the WaveLight® plaftorm than any other.1
What are you waiting for?
*In a survey of 124 patients.
†Out of 124 patients from the clinical study, 122 responded that they would have LASIK again.
Astigmatism is when the cornea is more curved in one direction than the other. A healthy cornea will be spherical like a basketball while eyes with astigmatism tend to have more of a football shape. This football shape bends and distorts light as it enters the eye, creating blurry vision whether you’re looking at something close up or far away. It’s possible to have astigmatism by itself or with either nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Most people with astigmatism are born with it, but WaveLight® LASIK technology can correct astigmatic eyes by rounding out the steeper area of the cornea. LASIK for astigmatism may give you the chance to leave corrective lenses behind.
Let’s face it, glasses and contacts can only do so much for your vision. They might even catch you off guard with the way they respond to different lighting environments. Wouldn’t you rather have the vision you’ve always wanted without thinking twice about where your glasses are or running out of contact lenses?
WaveLight® technology with CONTOURA® Vision lets you see the world with improvements in many of the visual symptoms commonly associated with glasses and contact lenses.4 In fact, this is the first FDA-approved vision correction procedure where some patients achieve better vision than they had with their glasses or contacts.4
