“Our patients appreciate the safety of IntraLase and the improved quality of vision from CustomVue”
– Barry S. Seibel, MD
LASIK has literally changed the lives of millions of people. It is a nearly painless procedure and has been FDA approved for well over a decade. LASIK patient satisfaction rate rivals that of any other medical procedure.
The Los Angeles area is home to more individuals who have received laser eye surgery than any other region and Dr. Seibel was an investigator in the original FDA clinical study of VISX CustomVue in Los Angeles – in which 98% of the participants had uncorrected vision of 20/20 after their procedure!
Seibel Vision Surgery owns the most advanced custom LASIK technology in the Los Angeles area. Our innovative technology includes:
Just like a fingerprint, your vision is 100 percent unique to your eyes. Many eye doctors only measure two values to correct vision using LASIK, meaning that your eye prescription could only provide a minimum level of correction regardless of your individual needs. Often, this leads to several more attempts to “fine-tune” the patient’s vision using LASIK.
Depending on your personal best-possible results, Dr. Seibel can measure and correct the unique imperfections of your vision using LASIK and provide the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses, most often to 20/20 and even beyond!
With the advent of the VISX WaveScan-based digital technology, Dr. Seibel can now identify, measure and address imperfections in your eyes 25 times more precisely than with more common methods.
WaveScan’s wavefront technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. Using this technology, Dr. Seibel can detect and measure the optical distortions unique to your entire optical system.
Light travels in a procession of flat sheets known as wavefronts. Gentle wavefront lights enter the eye, pass through the entire optical system (cornea, lens and retina) and are then reflected back into the WaveScan sensors.
The WaveScan system compares the reflected wavefronts with the original unaltered wavefronts. This produces a fingerprint of your vision, or WavePrint map. This information is then transferred to the VISX Star S4 excimer laser and is used as a guide to reshape the cornea during your laser vision treatment.
CustomVue LASIK involves making a flap in the cornea and reshaping its inner tissue, which adds a tremendous amount of precision and safety by using a laser (not a razor) to create the flap. The IntraLase femtosecond laser beam passes harmlessly through the outer layers of the cornea until it reaches its exact focal point within the cornea.
With computer precision and high-speed delivery of 15,000 spots per second, the IntraLase laser delivers over a million pulses as it gently separates the layers of corneal tissue and creates a customized flap of the desired thickness, size, orientation and location. After treatment, the flap is folded back into its original position where it bonds without the need for stitches.
This unprecedented level of control makes LASIK safer and allows more patients to qualify for LASIK. The level of accuracy, precision, control, and safety with the IntraLase laser is simply impossible to achieve with a mechanical microkeratome.
CustomVue LASIK is the revolutionary process of reshaping your cornea using individualized wavefront measurements for your Personal Best Vision.
One year after the CustomVue LASIK procedure, patients in a clinical study reported these great results without glasses and contact lenses:
Your unique correction information is transferred from the WaveScan to the VISX Star S4 excimer laser and guides the laser throughout the procedure.
The cool beam from the laser gently reshapes the cornea, removing microscopic amounts of tissue – less than the thickness of a human hair in most casts – to create a new curvature. During the procedure, the 3D ActiveTrak eye tracker follows the eye’s tiniest moves. It automatically repositions the laser to keep the laser focused where Dr. Seibel wants it, so you can completely relax during the procedure.
