Why Should I Have CustomVue?
VISX's FDA clinical study results were remarkable. Among other things:
At one year after the VISX CustomVue procedure;
100% of the clinical study participants could pass a driving test without glasses or contacts
98% of the clinical study participants could see 20/20 or better without glasses or contacts
70% of the clinical study participants could see 20/16 or better without glasses or contacts
Four times as many clinical study participants were very satisfied with their night vision after the VISX CustomVue procedure, compared to their night vision before with glasses or contacts.
Our newest advance in the surgery is the addition of a laser to create the flap of LASIK. We no longer use a blade, what is still done in many local centers, but a IntraLase laser which is 6 times safer than a blade. Most prior LASIK problems would occur because of bad blade cut. The all-laser flap is the most up-to-date way to create a flap with lowest risk. This technology has been approved by NASA for their astronauts, showing the faith they have in its ability to safely improve vision.
