The Khanna Institute is proud to offer Los Angeles LASIK patients state-of-the-art Wavefront technology. Wavefront is designed to precisely measure and map your corneal surface for the best possible LASIK results.

During Custom LASIK, Wavefront technology measures the eye from front to back to create a three-dimensional corneal map. With a highly sophisticated system of light refraction, the Wavefront device gathers your corneal information, creating a unique map reflecting your specific eye characteristics and irregularities. The Wavefront map then transmits this information to the laser, allowing virtually no room for error, and increasing your chances of achieving 20/20 vision or better.

A Whole New LASIK Procedure

Wavefront is based on the same technology used in the Hubble telescope. A precise pattern of hundreds of beams of light is sent to your eye. The reflected light is then measured by a computer. An ideal, predetermined reflected pattern is used as a baseline. The actual reflected pattern is subtracted from this to determine your unique treatment pattern.

This treatment protocol can be transferred directly to the laser without any chance of input error due to manual entry. The laser can then treat the specific points individually during your LASIK procedure. Eyeglasses and contacts only treat lower aberrations, but point-by-point laser correction allows lower and higher order aberrations to be treated. This improves the vision tremendously and can get even better results than 20/20.

“Supervision” is the term being applied to this kind of vision. Unlike previous technologies, where night vision was a problem with glare and haloes, Wavefront-based treatment may actually improve your night vision.
