Laser Vision Correction (LASIK) & Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery describes a wide range of procedures designed to reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Refractive surgery corrects common vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The Loyola Laser Vision Center offers a variety of surgical procedures designed to improve your uncorrected vision.

The most state-of-the-art equipment is used at Loyola. The vision-correcting laser automatically and instantaneously tracks the eye movements during a laser procedure. This allows the surgeon to track the patient’s eye movements to achieve maximum centration and accuracy. Patients can be confident that the treatment is precisely centered on the eye.

The high-tech equipment used at Loyola is nearly 25 times more precise for measuring visual imperfections than the traditional tools used to prescribe glasses or contact lenses. The WaveFront, or CustomVue, technology measures the tiny imperfections in the visual system beyond just the eyeglass prescription which are unique to every person. This results in a treatment which is customized to every patient, with increased quality of vision and reduced side effects such as glare and halos, especially in individuals with larger pupils.

Custom vision correction is the new standard of care in laser vision correction, providing your personal best vision.

Some of the benefits of these advanced Laser Vision Correction procedures include:

  • Improved visual quality over standard LASIK.
  • Significantly reduced incidence of halos and nighttime glare.
  • More accurate measurement and correction of optical aberrations.
  • Lower re-treatment rates.
  • WaveFront-based LASIK can also be used to retreat or enhance patients who have had previous LASIK.
