Custom LASIK with Wavefront Technology
Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates offers CustomVue™ LASIK to the South Bay Los Angeles area. This Wavefront™ LASIK technology dramatically reduces higher order aberrations and increases our ability to provide excellent vision.
In conventional LASIK procedures, eye measurements are taken using the same type of equipment used in the creation of glasses and contact lenses. It does not correct for microscopic irregularities in the surface that might create aberrations in the field of vision, similar to looking through tiny flaws in a window pane.
In Custom LASIK with Wavefront technology, a diagnostic device called an aberrometer maps the entire optical surface and path of your eye, including the tiny distortions and imperfections naturally present in all eyes. The collected information is essentially a unique “fingerprint of your vision”, giving your surgeon much more detailed information for your eyes, and a much more precise treatment. This technology produces a visual result not possible before Wavefront technology existed.
Results of an FDA clinical trial of this technology demonstrated that an incredible 94 percent of patients treated were able to see 20/20 or better without glasses. Plus, four times as many people in the trial were very satisfied with their night vision after LASIK, compared to their night vision before with glasses or contacts

Iris Registration & Motion Tracking Systems
Both the Allegretto Wave™ system and the ViSX CustomVue™ systems use infrared eye and iris tracking systems that keep the excimer laser locked onto its target during LASIK surgery. These systems record the pattern of the iris and uses it as a reference during surgery. Each person’s iris pattern has a unique pattern, so the laser can use iris registration to maintain proper alignment during surgery, tracking and adjusting for even the smallest eye rotations and movements.
Allegretto Wave™ Excimer Laser System
The surgeons of Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates are proud to offer the ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ Excimer Laser System to their selection of top quality LASIK tools. This is the first excimer laser designed specifically for the Custom Wavefront™ LASIK procedure. One of its amazing features is one of the fastest eye trackers available today, which allows the laser to respond faster than ever before to even the tiniest eye movement during treatment.
