Custom z-LASIK Surgery (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis)
Excerpted from Dr. Soroudi's Book: Advanced Refractive Surgery
Conceptually, LASIK is a very simple surgical procedure that involves two steps: cutting and lifting a small contact lens-like flap from a thin superficial layer of the cornea (about 100-120um in thickness), followed by reshaping of the underlying corneal tissue to correct the refractive error (near-sightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism).
It is here where a computer generated "wavefront" map of your eye is programmed into the laser to provide a custom treatment of all of your eye's visual imperfections. This custom treatment is intended to provide you with the best, most clear vision, without haloes, glare, or any other higher order aberrations that can also adversely affect your vision.
Needless to say, glasses and contacts do not correct such imperfections, so utilizing this technology, your vision can potentially be better than what you currently see with your glasses or contact lenses!
Higher order aberrations that custom LASIK surgery can eliminate.
The following image best summarizes what happens during this quick & relatively painless procedure:
1. The Ziemer Femtosecond Laser utilizes millions of laser pulses to create a 9 to 9.5mm flap on the Cornea (in a matter of about 13 seconds per eye). This obviates the need for using a blade to do this.
2. Once lifted, the VISX S4 Flying Spot Laser will deliver the exact treatment parameters to the Cornea. This usually takes about 8 seconds per Diopter of treatment.
3. The flap is placed back in it's place. That's it!!
This is how a CUSTOMIZED "wavefront" treatment plan is delivered to the Cornea during LASIK
Wavefront z-Lasik Surgeon in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills
Although Dr. Soroudi is certified and experienced to also utilize some of the other advanced excimer laser technologies around, he possesses and utilizes the newest version of the STAR VISX S4 flying spot laser with Iris Registration technology, which has the widest range of treatment options compared to any other laser platform around. This incredibly accurate machine performs custom treatment for myopia and hyperopia, as well as high astigmatism.
The VISX S4 even treats superficial corneal scars by ablating scars / opacities that may affect vision (this procedure is called Phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK). This is the same laser used to perform LASIK on Dr. Soroudi's own eyes.
