How does iLASIK work?
At Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology, we perform the most advanced LASIK procedure, called iLASIK. A comprehensive and thorough eye exam will be performed to determine candidacy for iLASIK. Once you pass the screening process, a customized blueprint of your eye will be mapped.
Advanced CustomVue correction uses the WavePrint system to painlessly measure and map the uniqueness of both of your eyes, right down to the minutest characteristics individual to you. This 3D mapping technology creates a blueprint (or fingerprint) of your eye. This blueprint will also be able to detect even the slightest issues so that we can create a customized treatment that fits your specific needs and visual aberrations.
Then, a cool beam of laser light is used to gently reshape the surface of the eye (the cornea), to painlessly correct your vision with our precise laser technology.
