State-of-the-art technology offers precision and accuracy
CustomVue™ impressive results are made possible by the VISX WaveScan™ system. WaveScan™ technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. This advanced technology is now used to measure a person’s vision to a level of precision not previously possible. The WaveScan™ system is 25 times more precise for measuring visual imperfections than the technology commonly used to prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Optimizing Your Personal Best Vision
Using the measurement and correction technologies of CustomVue™ Larson Eye Care can develop an individualized laser vision correction plan that addresses your unique needs. CustomVue™ treatment uses the WaveScan™ system to measure and map the entire optical path of an eye. The resulting map produces a “fingerprint” of a patient’s vision providing the doctor with a precise and detailed guide to treatment.
“This enables us to correct a patient’s vision so that they get the best possible results ” says Dr. Christopher Larson. In the FDA clinical study 98 percent of patients saw 20/20 or better one year after the CustomVue™ treatment and many patients see better than 20/20.
A recent survey conducted on behalf of vision technology leader Advanced Medical Optics Inc. revealed that experiences with LASIK were overwhelmingly positive:
- 94% said LASIK had improved their lives
- 96% of patients agree that LASIK was a safe procedure

What is LASIK vison correction?
It is a surgical procedure that uses a cool (non-thermal) beam of light to gently reshape the corner’s the surface of the eye to improve vision. The laser removes microscopic bits of tissue to flatten the cornea (to correct nearsightedness) steepen the cornea (to correct farsightedness) and/or smooth out corneal irregularities (to correct astigmatism). The goal of laser eye surgery is to change the shape the cornea so it does a better job of focusing images onto the retina for sharper vision. LASIK and PRK are two types of laser vision correction.
