Wiki

Wavefront-guided LASIK is a variation of LASIK surgery in which, rather than applying a simple correction of focusing power to the cornea (as in traditional LASIK), an ophthalmologist applies a spatially varying correction, guiding the computer-controlled excimer laser with measurements from a wavefront sensor. The goal is to achieve a more optically perfect eye, though the final result still depends on the physician's success at predicting changes that occur during healing. In older patients though, scattering from microscopic particles plays a major role and may outweigh any benefit from wavefront correction. Therefore, patients expecting so-called "super vision" from such procedures may be disappointed. Still, surgeons claim patients are generally more satisfied with this technique than with previous methods, particularly regarding lowered incidence of "halos," the visual artifact caused by spherical aberration induced in the eye by earlier methods. Based on their experience, the United States Air Force has described WFG-Lasik as giving "superior vision results".
