INTRALASE-LASIK: The Safest, Most Advanced Laser Vision Correction
Professional Eyecare Associates offers a blade-free CustomVue INTRALASE-LASIK experience, which combines two exciting technological advances that offer patients a real possibility to achieve a better than 20/20 outcome. These advances are the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Femtosecond Laser, which creates the corneal flap, and the STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser with CustomVue, for shaping a perfect corneal surface.
The result is a tremendous level of control and customization, making the blade-free INTRALASE-LASIK experience safer and more precise than ever. Patients are more comfortable during the procedure, experience a faster visual recovery and a better visual outcome.

Higher Order Aberrations Are Treated With CustomVue Lasik
- Aberrations are visual imperfections that may affect your vision. They vary from one person to the next, and are "lower" or "higher" in nature.
- Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism are lower-order aberrations previously treated with Traditional Lasik.
- Higher-order aberrations that link to glare and halos and could not be adequately corrected with glasses, contacts, or traditional LASIK, can be treated with CustomVue LASIK.
- Your doctor will recommend the procedure best suited for your eyes.
The Technology Behind CustomVue Lasik
- Unlike traditional Lasik, CustomVue Lasik uses a tool called a wavefront analyzer to measure the way light travels through your eye.
- A customized 3-D map of your eye is created from these measurements and shows your entire optical system, providing information about the unique visual characteristics of your eye.
- Each and every eye has its own unique characteristics and your surgeon uses this data to further customize your vision correction.
