How Does CustomVue™ Work?
CustomVue uses WaveScan® technology, which provides your eye doctor with a map of your vision.
WaveScan technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. This technology has now been applied to laser vision correction, measuring imperfections in the eye never before measured using standard methods for glasses and contact lenses.
WaveScan-based digital technology identifies and measures imperfections in your eyes 25 times more precisely than standard methods. In addition, WaveScan digital information is transferred to the laser, driving a new level of precision and accuracy.
Until now, eye doctors were forced to practice one-size-fits-all vision. An off-the-shelf lens can correct your vision fairly well, but it does not correct it precisely. Now, with WaveScan technology, your eye doctor can custom tailor a correction for the unique characteristics of your vision.
