LASIK Vision Correction

Wavefront technology represented one of the largest steps forward in LVC diagnostics. When this technology became available Spectrum was a first adopter. Trademarked as CustomVue, this technology now allows us to treat not only lower order aberrations such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism but also higher order aberrations. Higher order aberrations are not correctable with glasses or contacts, and these imperfections can limit your ability to see your best if not treated. Because of this singular advancement in LASIK we now see an increased number of patients with visual acuities beyond 20/20. In fact the majority of our patients were seeing better than 20/20. Some have referred to this as 'high definition vision'.

Spectrum Lasik was the first center in the Upstate to adopt IntraLase or 'bladefree' LASIK and the second in South Carolina. We realized early that this represented a major advancement in the precision and safety of creating epithelial flaps. Research had shown that the IntraLase Femtosecond laser was approximately 100 times more precise than the microkeratome or 'bladed method' and we promoted that. While some of our competitors touted this as a fad or marketing ploy, about a year or two later the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, other branches of the military as well as NASA, adopted this same technology for their pilots and astronauts. Patients who are treated with this technology typically see 20/20 the next day.
