Aspheric shape, minimized spherical aberrations
Induced spherical aberrations
Spot energy of laser beam
Due to the angle of incidence the light of the laser beam is ovalized increasingly towards the periphery and becomes partially reflected which results in less fluence and thus sub-optimal ablation.
Wave front Optimized® ablation profile
Wave front Optimized® LASIK places more pulses in the peripheral area to compensate for energy loss and reflections. This provides a nearly 100% optical zone and a minimized transition zone. At the same time, the natural aspheric shape of the cornea is preserved and the induction of spherical aberrations minimized.
Without Wavefront Optimized® ablation profiles
In these treatments the decreasing fluence and reflections are not compensated and the ablation depth in the peripheral area is insufficient. As a result, the transition between the optical zone and the transition zone is less smooth, while the transition zone itself is fairly large. The non-aspheric ablation profile alters the natural corneal shape and induces spherical aberrations.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
Before performing laser surgery, series of tests will have to be conducted to make sure that you qualify for the treatment. Below are few simple questions to help you find out if you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery.
