Conventional LASIK or iLASIK

1801 vs. 2005

Conventional LASIK is based on the optics of lenses. The science dates back to 1801 as you can see below.

  • Roger Bacon, describes reading glasses, in 1276.
  • Benjamin Franklin invented the bifocal lens, in the 1700’s.
  • Thomas Young, discovered astigmatism in his own eye in 1801.

Many centers use different names for conventional LASIK, as a marketing ploy, adding more confusion to the public information. Here, the myths are clarified:

“Every thing else is conventional LASIK not iLASIK”

Many centers call conventional LASIK:

  • Flying spot technology
  • Scanning spot technology
  • Wavefront optimized

But it is not iLASIK. iLASIK utilizes modern optics from 2005, Fourier algorithms to calculate the ideal treatment that is specific for the patient.

Better Than Glasses or Contact Lenses?

The clinical studies presented to the FDA show that the Advanced CustomVue procedure can potentially produce better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses. These results are possible because of the combination of technology and mathematical formulas VISX Technology™ uses to design an individualized Advanced CustomVue treatment.

Wavefront: LASIK (Guided)

;

Surgery: LASIK – Flap Creation (Microkeratome vs. Laser)
