Thanks to CustomVue™ Lasik, it’s now possible for many patients to achieve a quality of vision better than 20/20. New ‘WaveScan’ technology allows our doctors to capture unique imperfections in your vision that could not be previously detected. This information provides 25-times more precision than standard measurements for glasses or contacts.
Custom LASIK in Harrisburg Pennsylvania:
The latest technological advance in laser vision correction is “custom” LASIK surgery. Harrisburg patients who receive “Custom” LASIK, which also goes by various other proprietary names, such as CustomVue™, receive ultimate care. Custom LASIK surgery represents the next step in improving the outcome of laser vision correction beyond the excellent results already attainable by conventional means. This is possible because every eye and its associated refractive errors are unique, much like one’s fingerprint, and recent advancements in technology now allow us not only to measure these unique refractive imperfections but also to accurately and predictably eliminate them.
At the heart of “custom” LASIK procedures is the aberrometer, such as the VISX WaveScan™ wave-front measurement system. By adopting technology originally developed for high-powered telescopes, your LASIK surgeon can use these wave-front measurement devices to identify and quantitate imperfections in the individual’s eye 25 times more precisely than the standard methods used for eyeglasses and contact lenses. This information is then digitally transferred to the excimer laser for the treatment, providing a new level of precision and accuracy.
Your LASIK Procedure Just Got Smarter with the iDESIGN® System
We value your vision as much as you do, that’s why your eyes deserve one of the most advanced laser technologies available today!
When it comes to your vision, only the best will do. That’s why we remain committed to staying at the forefront of vision correction technology. There are many LASIK options to choose from, but only the iDESIGN® system driven LASIK procedure offers an advanced, high-definition method of measurement that assesses your unique vision imperfections to help us create a 100% personalized vision treatment plan just for you.
LASIK powered by the iDESIGN® system uses a unique process to map the eye’s entire visual pathway, not just the front of the eye (cornea), to make the procedure 100% personalized. This technology makes it possible to reduce or eliminate refractive errors-including higher order aberrations-of the full optical system.
Our practice believes in providing patients with the best technology available. Technologies used worldwide and trusted by organizations with the highest safety standards, including NASA and the U.S. Military. Their elite personnel, including astronauts and fighter pilots, have relied on advanced technologies to improve their vision and reduce the need for glasses and contact lenses.
The iDESIGN® System – The Brain of the Wavefront-guided Treatments
What is the iDESIGN® System?
Working like a computer “brain,” the iDESIGN® system precisely measures and analyzes each eye’s imperfections as the first step in your LASIK procedure to help us create a 100% personalized treatment plan.
How does the iDESIGN® System work?
Because no two eyes are alike, it’s important to capture each eye’s exact vision imperfections. The iDESIGN® system uses a high-definition sensor that has 5x the resolution of previous technology*, capturing over 1,200 data points from each eye to create a detailed picture of your eye’s unique imperfections and accurately plan a treatment for you.
What can iDESIGN® System-driven LASIK mean for me?
Your eyes are a gift. They help you experience life’s moments and navigate the world. No one understands this better than us, which is why we offer the latest in laser vision correction for the best possible results. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have mixed astigmatism, the iDESIGN® system-driven LASIK can result in clear, sharp vision you will enjoy day and night.
Patients in the FDA myopia clinical trials who had LASIK powered by the iDESIGN® system reported significant improvements in ALL measures of visual functioning and well-being, including:
In fact, studies further support high patient satisfaction with LASIK powered by the iDESIGN® system, including
– >96% of patients were willing to recommend the procedure to their friends and family
– >91% of patients were satisfied to very satisfied with their vision
You can rely on our practice to assess your vision and provide you with a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Schedule a FREE LASIK consultation to see if you are a candidate for the procedure and iDESIGN System.
Is LASIK with the iDESIGN® System affordable?
You may be surprised to learn that LASIK is more affordable than you think. Rather than spending
$12,000 to $18,000 for contacts and glasses over the course of your lifetime, you can invest
$3,000 to $5,000 on a one-time LASIK procedure, which typically includes all pre-surgery evaluations and post-surgery follow-up exams.

Most patients are very pleased with the results of their refractive surgery. However, there are risks involved with this medical procedure. Potential side effects to LASIK may include dry eye, halos, glare, as well as other visual anomalies. It’s important to discuss the risks and benefits with our surgeon so you can make an informed decision. Please ask for a copy of the Patient Information Booklet at your consultation.
Contact lens costs are estimates and provided for comparison purposes only (based over 20 years). Your personal contact lens cost will vary. LASIK with the iLASIK® technology suite cost is based on an estimated fee of $3,000 to $5,000 for both eyes.
How Does Your LASIK Procedure Using Modern LASIK Technologies Work?
STEP 1: CREATING YOUR EYE MAP
• The first step is to create a 3-D map of the imperfections of your eye using eye-mapping technology that measures how your eye processes light
• This technology captures more data (over 1,200 data points) than ever before to measure
your eye’s unique imperfections and accurately plan a treatment that is uniquely yours
• It’s 25x more precise than conventional measurements, it even measures and captures
imperfections that are not detected by conventional technology.
STEP 2: PREPARING YOUR EYE
• The procedure uses an ultra-fast laser for creating a thin flap to prepare the cornea for treatment
STEP 3: DELIVERING YOUR PERSONALIZED TREATMENT
• Next, an ultra-precise laser gently reshapes the cornea (front of your eye) to the desired curvature, based on the precise plan created by your personalized eye map
Whether it’s because you want to see in the middle of the night, to wake up to a clear view of your clock, participate in sports, or not to have lenses interfere with your daily activities, you have your own reasons for wanting your vision corrected.
Typically, a “custom” LASIK surgery procedure takes at most a few seconds longer than a conventional procedure. All aspects of the treatments are the same, with the main exception that the re-shaping of the cornea by the excimer laser is based on the unique wave-front information of the eye, rather than the conventional, non-customized measurements. Just like a conventional LASIK, there is no pain during the procedure, and most patients notice immediate results after treatment, with continued improvement in vision over several days.
Results of Clinical Study on Custom LASIK Surgery:
A large clinical study, which was necessary for attaining FDA approval of this new and improved technology, highlighted the excellent results achievable with “custom” LASIK surgery. In this particular study, one year after undergoing “custom” LASIK, 100 percent of the enrolled patients could pass a driving test without glasses or contact lenses. In fact, 98 percent of custom-treated patients could see 20/20, and a full 70 percent could see better than 20/20. Moreover, in this study, four times as many people were very satisfied with their night vision after “custom” LASIK as compared to their night vision before with glasses or contact lenses.
Currently, “custom” LASIK is available to patients whose refractive error falls within the parameters set forth by the FDA. With additional clinical data constantly being submitted to the FDA, the eligibility for “custom” LASIK will surely be expanded. Patients interested in taking advantage of this new and exciting technology should contact a LASIK surgeon.
