The Benefits of Custom LASIK Surgery

Ophthalmologist & LASIK Surgeon Serving Lombard, Naperville, Downers Grove & Nearby Chicago, IL

In any trade, from carpentry to laser vision correction surgery, your results will improve based on how accurate your measurements are. The technology that we use to create glasses and contact prescriptions is good enough to help people see clearly, but it doesn’t mean that two people with the same prescription will see everything the same. You want a more accurate solution before getting your vision surgically altered.

Fortunately, there is a solution: Foulkes Vision has offered custom Wavefront LASIK surgery to patients in the Chicago area for many years now. This cutting-edge surgery allows your ophthalmologist to create a map of your eye that shows how your eye is constructed, what types of vision problems it has, and how your ophthalmologist can best correct them.

In addition to correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, Wavefront technology allows for the correction of other vision problems, such as:

  • Excessive glare
  • Vision blurring
  • Light “halos”
  • Low night vision
  • Starburst patterns
  • Double vision

These and other problems are often caused by minor aberrations on the surface of your eye. By detecting these and correcting for them in surgery, custom LASIK prevents them from occurring where they would have with traditional LASIK.

Eye doctors from Foulkes Vision have lots of experience with Wavefront technology, and know how to use it to optimize your results. When you are choosing an eye doctor, their surgical skill can greatly influence your results, which is why you should choose a professional who knows how to use cutting-edge technology.

Foulkes Vision serves patients in the greater Chicago area, and has locations in Chicago and Lombard. To schedule a free consultation with our eye doctors today, contact us through this website or at 630-724-1400.
