Aloha Laser Vision continues to bring the latest in laser vision correction technology to our patients. As the first practice to offer topography-guided laser vision correction in Hawaii, we are proud to announce that this FDA-approved technology can allow us to provide more accurate vision enhancement than ever before. The key to its’ efficacy is in the diagnostic capabilities of the platform, which can precisely measure and map corneal imperfections to provide a highly customized LASIK procedure that can yield unparalleled results.
New Topography-Guided LASIK Technology at Aloha Laser Vision
Dr. Alan Faulkner is one of the first eye surgeons in the nation to be trained in and perform Contoura Vision™ topography-guided laser vision correction. He has now integrated the Alcon WaveLight® ALLEGRO Topolyzer and topography-guided treatment planning software into use at our practice. This revolutionary laser vision correction platform is the next frontier in customized LASIK, capable of delivering better overall quality of vision for patients with nearsightedness (myopia) and nearsightedness combined with astigmatism.
Candidates for Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction
Good candidates for this type of vision correction procedure are often those individuals who:
- Have less than eight diopters of myopia
- Do not have over three diopters of astigmatism
- Do not have more than nine diopters of myopia and astigmatism combined
- Are at least 18 years old
- Have a stable vision correction prescription
- Do not have excessively dry eyes
Candidacy for the procedure can be determined during your initial consultation with our eye surgeon at Aloha Laser Vision. At this time you will undergo a full vision exam, after which your surgeon will discuss viable options for correcting your vision.
Results of Topography-Guided LASIK
Due to the unparalleled accuracy of topography-guided LASIK procedures, our eye surgeon may be able to deliver results that surpass the levels of visual acuity achieved with older methods of LASIK. Studies performed by Alcon® have shown that, of the patients who have undergone topography-guided laser vision correction, 92.7% have achieved 20/20 vision, and of that number, 68.8% achieved 20/16 vision within three months after surgery.
