Wavefront Technology: How It Has Improved LASIK

Who is Not a Candidate for Wavefront?

Even though wavefront is an advancement in LASIK, it is not for everyone. Because wavefront involves the removal of more corneal tissue than conventional LASIK, individuals with thin corneas may not be candidates. If you have small pupils you may not be a candidate because the wavefront measurements require a minimum pupil size for accuracy.

Your surgeon will recommend the method of measurement that gives you the best chance of excellent vision.
