CustomVue™ WaveScan Wavefront® LASIK in Smithtown, Long Island
Before your vision can be corrected in your LASIK procedure, one of the doctors at North Shore Eye Care must first create a flap in the cornea. This is one of the most critical steps in the LASIK procedure. Because IntraLase® is a bladeless system for creating the corneal flap, it lowers the risk of complications. Using the IntraLase® system, partially formed or uneven flaps are a thing of the past. Our doctors program the exact size, shape, and depth of the desired corneal flap into a computer software program. This guides the laser to precisely create the flap.
With the greater safety and predictability of IntraLase®, patients who were once not considered ideal candidates for LASIK, due to thin corneas or a previous laser vision surgery, may now undergo the procedure. North Shore Eye Care has the ability to tailor the flap for your unique dimensions, increasing the consistency and accuracy of each procedure. In addition, more patients achieve 20/20 vision or better and have fewer corneal irregularities and vision complications with the IntraLase® method.

Did you know that your vision is as unique as your fingerprint and that no two eyes are the same? At North Shore Eye Care, we believe individualized treatment is essential for the best in LASIK, which is why we have invested in the CustomVue™ WaveScan Wavefront® System for our Smithtown, Long Island practice. Wavefront technology creates a detailed map of your eyes, which gives us the potential to achieve better results than is possible with glasses or contact lenses!
Before wavefront technology, doctors could not correct vision to fit each patient's unique visual "fingerprint." Now, we can measure tiny imperfections and tailor your LASIK surgery to the distinct characteristics of your eyes. Not only is this technique more accurate than was previously possible, it's safe as well. In May 2003, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved CustomVue™ as a safe and effective technique for performing truly personalized LASIK.
