Patients who suffer from refractive errors in their vision turn to LASIK for its potential to free them from glasses and contact lenses. But can it really deliver 20/20 vision? Will you still need to wear glasses after LASIK?
Dr. Chris Walton is pleased to offer his Mobile-area patients the very latest in LASIK technology, the Allegretto Wave® laser. This cutting-edge system makes use of something called Wavefront guidance technology, which takes precise measurements of the eye to build a high fidelity three-dimensional model of the surface of the cornea.
Unlike conventional LASIK, which can only correct the so-called low order aberrations that lead to nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, the Allegretto Wave® laser is capable of resolving the higher order aberrations that make every individual’s eyesight unique.
By correcting these additional components of the refractive error, Dr. Walton has been able to help 100 percent of his LASIK patients achieve 20/20 vision or better with the Allegretto Wave laser, which completely eliminates the need for glasses or contacts. It is, in part, the ability to provide true freedom from corrective lenses that has made Dr. Walton’s practice so successful.
