What is Topography Guided LASIK?
Topography-guided LASIK is the latest advancement in LASIK technology providing a more accurate method for measuring your eye structure, and personalizing your LASIK procedure. With this exciting LASIK technological advancement, the surgeon can obtain more detailed information and measurements on the structure of the eye and cornea which provides a more individualized, customization for the LASIK procedure.
How is Topography-Guided LASIK Different?
You won’t actually notice a big difference in the LASIK process, because you’ll still go through the same steps as you would have for the traditional LASIK procedure. Since LASIK works by making microscopic changes to the shape of the cornea, however, the accuracy of topography-guided LASIK provides your surgeon with a better “map” of your eye structure.

- A better “map” of your eye structure
- More individual customization for personalized vision correction
