Your vision is unique - as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. Much like a fingerprint, no two eyes are exactly alike. VISX WaveScan® Technology provides your eye doctor with a map of your eye.
Once it is confirmed that you are a good candidate, your doctor will schedule you for a CustomVue™ procedure. Your doctor will provide details to you on how to prepare for the day of the procedure.
On procedure day, you will be seated in a reclined position. Anesthetic drops will be placed in your eyes and a flap will be created on your cornea. Your individualized treatment information is transferred from the VISX WaveScan® to the laser in order to drive the CustomVue™ procedure. The actual laser procedure typically takes several seconds. Most individuals feel no pain during the procedure.
After CustomVue™, you will notice results immediately, and your vision will continue to improve over the next few days. Typically, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit the next day, again in about a week, and again around a month after the initial procedure.
