Your vision is as unique and personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. The Wave Scan Wavefront System provides Dr. Mitchell with a WavePrint Map, which is a more detailed visual analysis than has ever been available before. It can help provide a personalized laser vision correction treatment.
The WavePrint™ Map
Now, for the first time, the WavePrint Map provides information on more than just the corneal surface of your eye. It reveals the way your entire optical system processes light. The WavePrint Map provides a new level of diagnostic information previously unavailable. Using this information, the doctor can:
1. Accurately assess whether you're a good candidate for laser vision correction. The WavePrint Map is the new gold standard in vision measurement. Anyone who is considering laser vision correction should obtain a WavePrint Map as a first step.
2. Personalize your treatment plan to your unique vision. The WavePrint Map permits this kind of personalized planning.
From the cosmos to Huntsville, Alabama, the WavePrint Map is derived from technology first developed to correct distortions of light waves from space. This allowed researchers to accurately view images of stars and planets. The WavePrint Map uses the same technology to measure light waves as they travel through your eye. This technology provides a precise and more detailed analysis of your vision.
