The LASIK Vision Institute, a leading provider of laser vision correction services, today announced it will be exclusively using the CustomVue laser vision technology from industry leader VISX Technology in all LASIK Vision Institute Centers across the country.
The CustomVue technology is considered to be the most accurate, highest-quality and technologically advanced laser vision correction process available. The procedure designs a distinct correction for each eye, with unprecedented levels of measurement accuracy and treatment precision.
“With the exclusive adoption of the VISX CustomVue technology, The LASIK Vision Institute is able to provide consumers with the finest, most cutting-edge laser vision correction procedures available,” said Gary Peterson, CEO of Vision Care Holdings, which owns The Laser Vision Institute. “And we are able to offer this technology, administered by the best physicians anywhere, at affordable pricing that is lower than almost any other provider.”
The CustomVue procedure is FDA-approved, with 98 percent of patients who use the VISX laser able to see 20/20 or better after one year.
The VISX WaveScan Wavefront System identifies and measures imperfections in the eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods. Based on the data gathered, the WaveScan technology then produces a detailed “map” of the eye, translates this information and designs a set of digital treatment instructions for the VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System. The laser system, which is the most advanced technology platform available, integrates the WaveScan data and custom treatment design to deliver the custom-tailored laser treatment. The CustomVue procedure uses Iris Registration technology, which is the first fully automated method of aligning the treatment to the cornea providing greater alignment accuracy.
The LASIK Vision Institute (LVI) provides laser vision correction services through the company’s 30 upscale laser correction centers located in 23 states across the country. LVI (lasikvisioninstitute.com) uses CustomVue by VISX Technology, the latest state-of-the-art FDA-approved laser technology, in each of its centers. Procedures are performed by experienced independent eye surgeons who have completed more than 500,000 eye surgeries, with pre and postoperative visits along with patient counseling available at all locations. Unlike other eye surgery providers, LVI owns its laser equipment and can offer consumers pricing significantly below other providers while maintaining a high standard of service from the best quality physicians.
