Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is the most commonly performed vision correction procedure for patients suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Using the most advanced LASIK technology available, Dr. Ceravolo performs the Z-LASIK procedure to improve your vision by actually re-shaping your cornea with highly precise beams of laser light allowing your eye to refract light more precisely onto your retina.
Each patient’s treatment is customized and so precise that, following the custom Z-LASIK procedure, they report their vision is significantly improved. Most patients, in fact, say their vision is better than it had been while wearing glasses or contact lenses.
How Our Custom Z-LASIK Works
Dr. Ceravolo uses leading-edge technology to perform your customized eye treatment.
- A digital map or a WavePrint of the unique imperfections of your eyes through a computer-mapping system called the WaveScan®.
- Dr. Ceravolo then transfers your custom 3D eye map to CustomVue VISX Star S4 IR excimer laser, completely customizing the procedure to fit your individualized vision needs.
- The Ziemer femtosecond laser, using the innovative top view camera, creates a corneal flap based on the data of your custom WavePrint map.
- Dr. Ceravolo will use the state-of-the-art Wavefront-guided VisX Star S4 excimer laser to precisely reshape your corneal tissue based on upon WavePrint.
Once Dr. Ceravolo has reshaped your cornea to optimize your vision, your eye’s ability to focus light onto the retina will be greatly improved. In most cases, your vision is clear and without the hassle associated with contacts or glasses.
With these two extraordinary state-of-the-art lasers used in combination the patient has undergone our Z-LASIK procedure. The Z-LASIK dramatically changes the quality of our patient’s lives. Incredible patient care, a highly respected surgeon and a talented clinical team are what we offer our patients every day.
