FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


What is CustomVue™ Laser Vision Correction?
VISX CustomVue™ is an individual laser vision correction treatment that is WaveScan-guided. This enables a doctor to measure and correct unique imperfections in each individual’s vision that could never be measured before with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. With the CustomVue™ procedure, nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic individuals have the potential to achieve a new level of vision that we call Personal Best Vision.


Is the CustomVue™ procedure FDA approved?
Based on the clinical study, the U.S. FDA has approved the CustomVue™ procedure as safe and effective for treating nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.


What is WaveScan and WavePrint map?
WaveScan technology provides a measurement and visual representation of your vision based on the behavior of light waves. It compares light passing through your eye to the same light pattern from an eye that needs no visual correction. The WavePrint map is the output of the WaveScan, it captures the unique imperfections of a person’s visual path.

How accurate is WaveScan technology?
WaveScan technology identifies and measures imperfections in an individual’s vision 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses.


Does the WaveScan hurt?
No, the WaveScan is a measurement device that you simply gaze into while it measures the vision imperfections in your eye.


What do you mean by Personal Best Vision?
Personal Best Vision refers to the new level of laser vision correction that can be achieved with the CutomVueT procedure. Since WaveScan technology can measure and correct imperfections that are unique to each individual’s vision with 25 times more precision than standard measurements for glasses and contact lenses, individuals can potentially achieve the best possible vision for their eyes.


How does the CustomVue™ procedure work?
First, the WaveScan technology measures the imperfections in the eyes and produces a WavePrint Map. Much like a fingerprint, no two WavePrint maps are alike. Then, the treatment information is transferred to the VISX STAR S4 laser. The doctor then uses that information to fine-tune the procedure thereby providing a new level of precision and accuracy.

What can the CustomVue™ procedure do for me?
A shown in the clinical study, CustomVue™ has the potential to produce better vision than is possible with glasses and contact lenses. It tailors a distinct correlation for each individual- in fact each treatment is “designed” by the unique characteristics of your individual eye.


What does better than 20/20 mean?
20/20 is the current standard excellence in vision. But, as shown in a clinical study, individuals with the CustomVue™ procedure have the potential to see even better than 20/20. In fact, one year after the CustomVue™ procedure nearly 70 percent of clinical study participants saw 20/16 or better.


Can the CustomVue™ procedure improve my night vision?
Yes, potentially in clinical study, four times as many people were very satisfied with their vision at night with the procedure as compared to their night vision before the procedure with glasses and contact lenses.
