Bausch & Lomb is a trusted name when it comes to vision correction and care, and their cutting-edge Technolas Zyoptix LASIK system provides a personalized treatment that yields better results than ever. Read on to learn more about laser eye surgery and this innovative, highly-successful system:
LASIK is a common form of corrective laser eye surgery which fixes distortions in the shape of the eye through the use of a finely-guided laser. But just like your fingerprints, the shape and structure of each of your eyes is unique, and a standard procedure cannot account for variations in individual eye structure. To address this issue and provide the best results possible, the Technolas Zyoptix system by Bausch & Lomb utilizes wavefront-guided LASIK technology to measure and correct for spatial variations in your corneas.
Small imperfections in the shape of your eye, known as aberrations, can scatter light and contribute to poor vision. In order to correct this problem, the Technolas Zyoptix system maps out thousands of points across your corneas, allowing for complete three-dimensional imaging of your eyes. This allows the surgeon to measure the aberrations within your eyes and correct them with laser surgery.
The Technolas Zypotix system consistently produces 20/20 or better vision for over 90% of patients. Furthermore, the wavefront-guided LASIK technology allows for correction of higher-order aberrations to minimize light scattering and improve night and low-light vision, with an unprecedented 40% of patients reporting better night driving vision than they had before the eye surgery.
