Zyoptix Custom Wavefront LASIK

Cavanaugh Eye Center performs custom wavefront LASIK at our Overland Park location

What is Zyoptix Custom LASIK?

Zyoptix is the Custom Wavefront LASIK platform for our Bausch + Lomb Technolas Laser. This technology is a major advancement over traditional standard LASIK because it allows us to detect and treat more of your vision abnormalities. For many years, standard LASIK could only treat your basic prescription and produce clarity results similar to glasses. Eyes are as individual as fingerprints and some patients have more complex vision problems than others. If your eyes have elevated levels of Higher Order Aberrations (HOA), which are subtle optical imperfections above and beyond the prescription in your glasses, you may benefit from treatment with the Zyoptix Custom Wavefront LASIK.

Custom Wavefront is a state-of-the-art advancement in LASIK surgery, providing patients with an even greater level of safety and accuracy than ever before. This technology detects distortions in the optical system to eliminate post-surgery visual side effects such as streaks and halos around lights. It also provides for advanced eye tracking control, resulting in effective, accurate correction of astigmatism with laser surgery.

Zyoptix Compared to Traditional LASIK

How much you see depends on vision abnormalities such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism (known as lower order aberrations), which traditional LASIK can treat. However, how well you see can depend on the presence and severity of visual distortions called higher order aberrations (HOA). HOAs can create visual problems such as blurred vision, decreased contrast sensitivity, poor night vision, glare, shadows and halos. Unlike traditional LASIK, Zyoptix Custom LASIK treats both 
lower- and higher-order aberrations which may result in better quality vision than what you could achieve with glasses or contact lenses.

Custom LASIK – Better Outcomes 

Custom treatment allows for precise, individualized vision correction that may exceed what is possible with traditional LASIK surgery. In the US FDA Clinical Trials that Bausch + Lomb Technolas conducted, the data demonstrated that six months after Zyoptix LASIK surgery,  patients achieved the following results:
  • 20/40 vision in 99.4% of cases
  • 20/20 vision 91.5% of the time
  • 99.0% of subjects reported they were moderately or highly satisfied with their results
  • 99.7% indicated improvement in quality of vision
  • More than 70% reported improvement in night vision while driving
  • Most amazing is that over 60% of patients gained quality of vision beyond what they had achieved with glasses or contact lenses.
Zyoptix technology allows Dr. Cavanaugh to improve both the quantity and quality of your vision which translates into a greater chance of achieving freedom from glasses and reduced risk of post-LASIK complications such as glare, halos and difficulty with night vision. Every patient seen at Cavanaugh Eye Center is evaluated for potential treatment with the Zyoptix system and is an option for patients with nearsightedness and/or astigmatism if their prescription is in the approved treatment range.  Zyoptix is 
not yet FDA approved for patients with farsightedness or hyperopia.

Advantages of Zyoptix

  • Greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision or better
  • Reduced chance of losing best-corrected vision
  • Reduced chance of losing visual quality or contrast sensitivity
  • Reduced night-vision disturbances such as glare and halos
  • Conserves greater amount of tissue for those patients with thin corneas
  • Studies have shown that visual results with custom LASIK are more predictable than with traditional LASIK
