CustomVue® Individualized Laser Vision Correction was developed by VISX, the company recognized worldwide for bringing innovation and breakthrough technology to laser vision correction. With CustomVue, a new standard in laser vision correction is established, providing a precise level of measurements and correction never before possible.
Using the WaveScan®-based digital technology, originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space, doctors can now identify, measure, and correct imperfections in an individual’s eyes 25 times more precisely than with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. This information is transferred to the laser, providing a new level of precision and accuracy.
Just like a fingerprint, each person’s vision is 100 percent unique to their eyes. Before the recent advancements in technology, doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision, meaning that prescriptions could only provide a certain level of correction regardless of an individual’s needs.

Now, VISX CustomVue® can measure and correct the unique imperfections of each individual’s vision and provide them with the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses-Personal Best Vision.
WaveScan technology produces a detailed map of your eye – much like a fingerprint, no two are alike.
