Atlanta Vision Cataract & Laser Center Center offers the latest in LASIK vision correction, Zyoptix. This is a customized LASIK laser procedure that provides an in-depth advanced diagnostic screening process in order to make it possible for unique and customized treatment for each eye. This is what makes this Zyoptix customized LASIK laser procedure different. Each eye is evaluated and data about each eye is delivered to an advanced mapping system called Zywave. Visual errors not treated using traditional LASIK surgery can be indicated with Zywave and corrected during the LASIK procedure. With the Ztoptix LASIK laser system, patients in Atlanta, GA can be helped who have visual errors such as large pupils, significant astigmatism or those who experience visual errors causing glare at night.
Zyoptix™ Can Help Provide Better Outcomes for Many Patients
One of the problems with early LASIK laser procedures was it sometimes caused problems with night vision. The technology of those lasers had limitations that didn’t allow many patients to be considered good LASIK candidates. However, Zyoptix offers an advanced technology through its special screening process by identifying specific eye abnormalities that can be corrected through this procedure. For example, Atlanta Vision Cataract & Laser Center Center’s physicians will measure the size of your pupils and the thickness of your cornea to help provide customized correction to help prevent potential night vision problems. Zyoptix customized LASIK allows more patients to have successful LASIK vision correction outcomes when other LASIK procedures left them with night vision problems such as fluctuating vision, night glare and halos for those who have larger pupils, and dry eyes.
Can Zytopix™ LASIK Help You Obtain Better Vision with Less Possible Complications?
Patients with myopia (near-sightedness) or hyper myopia (far-sightedness) or those with astigmatism can be helped with Zytopix laser procedure. Candidates need to be at least 18 years of age so that the eyes and vision will have matured sufficiently. For most patients, Zyoptix customized LASIK vision correction corrects their refractive errors so much, that they no longer require the use of glasses or contacts. However, for those in their 40’s, the common age for many to have changes in their close up vision, reading glasses may be needed. Laser vision correction can be calibrated to avoid reading glasses after 40, if one eye is kept slightly nearsighted – this is called Monovision LASIK.
