Customized LASIK can be of two types: Topographically guided customized LASIK or wavefront guided customized LASIK.
Topography guided LASIK involves using the corneal topographic features of the cornea of the patient to determine an appropriate profile of the end cornea. Wavefront guided LASIK involves using a special instrument known as a wavefront aberrometer to determine tiny imperfections of the eye which limit vision and contrast. Data from the wavefront aberrometer is then used to determine the appropriate ablation profile for the patient.
Customized LASIK is also called Zyoptix, C-LASIK, CustomVue depending on the laser platform used.
Dr. Rupal Shah uses the Carl Zeiss Meditec MEL 80 excimer laser with WASCA wavefront aberrometer (with Iris Registration and Cyclotorsion), Atlas Corneal Topography and CRS-Master Customization platform.
