provides an alternative for people with the following vision disorders: nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

The Procedure

After careful evaluation and measurement, the surgeon uses a microkeratome to raise a thin layer of the cornea's surface, exposing the inner-cornea. A small central area of corneal tissue is then ablated with the excimer laser... the amount depending on the degree of correction necessary to restore natural vision.
Once completed, the exposed inner-cornea is sealed by replacing the previously prepared flap. The cornea has extraordinary natural bonding qualities that allow effective healing without the use of stitches.
In the top photo, a measurement of the cornea is taken to mark the area where the flap will be made. In the bottom illustration, you can see where the laser ablates the inner-cornea.
Custom Wavefront, high definition vision with Zyoptix™ from Bausch & Lomb is the new standard in LASIK and laser vision correction. Custom Wavefront provides the most precise level of measurement and correction available today.
Zyoptix™ is so advanced it lets us treat eye imperfections that could not previously be corrected with conventional LASIK techniques. This new system gives you the ultimate in clarity by using wavefront technology that analyzes each eye individually for precise results and outstanding visual quality. With the Bausch & Lomb Zyoptix™ system, you’ll have the confidence of knowing it’s been used in over 100,000 procedures worldwide.
Zyoptix uses wavefront technology, which allows us to measure and correct each individual’s unique visual defects. Astrophysicists developed this technology when they needed better technology to repair the Hubble telescope. When it was first put into service, the high-powered telescope’s images had distortions, similar to those many humans have. The images visible with the telescope were blurred because the telescope’s mirrors had aberrations (imperfections), similar to those in human eyes.
To repair the Hubble telescope they needed a new way to analyze the visual information. The scientist developed wavefront technology, a method to examine the visual information one pixel at a time. It was a breakthrough. Now we are using that technology to analyze human vision. Wavefront lasering is about the one pixel at a time analysis and treatment of your unique visual system.
With wavefront technology we analyze microscopy small portions of your visual system (your cornea and lens), similar to the one pixel at a time analyses the astrophysicist did with the Hubble telescope. Each small area is measured to exacting standards and a unique treatment plan is created for you.

This wavefront technology is now available for Lasik, laser vision correction in the Bausch & Lomb Technolas Laser, Zyoptix™ System.

The FDA studied The Bausch & Lomb, Zyoptix™ wavefront system for years before it was approved in the US. Of the patient involved in the FDA trials, not a single patient was dissatisfied with the results. Worldwide over 100,000 Zyoptix™ procedures have been performed. That’s more that 10 times that of the closest competing laser vision correction system.

Nearsightedness or myopia, occurs when light entering the eye focuses in front of the retina instead of directly on it. This is caused by a cornea that is steeper, or an eye that is longer, than a normal eye. Nearsighted people typically see well up close, but have difficulty seeing far away.
This problem is often discovered in school-age children who report having trouble seeing the chalkboard. Near-sightedness usually becomes progressively worse through adolescence and stabilizes in early adulthood. It is an inherited problem.
Signs and Symptoms
  • Blurry distance vision
  • Vision seems clearer when squinting

Detection and Diagnosis
Nearsightedness is detected with a vision test and refraction.

The treatment for nearsightedness depends on several factors such as the patient’s age, activities, and occupation. Vision can corrected with glasses, contacts, or surgery. Refractive procedures such as LASIK can be considered for adults when the prescription has remained stable for at least one year.
