Limberg Lasik

Whether you’re buying a car, new businesss suit, or even a cell phone, you want it to be tailored to your specific needs. This is also true with vision correction. With CustomVue LASIK, we are able to target your unique impefections and correct them.

Technology today not only allows us to measure each refractive imperfection, but also accurately eliminate them. CustomVue or “custom” LASIK is the most recent technological advancement in laser vision correction. It goes beyond the excellent results already attainable by more conventional means. CustomVue is designed to treat myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

The VISX Wavescan Wavefront measurements system is at the heart of custom LASIK procedures. These devices can identify and measure imperfections in your eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses or contacts. Rather than the one-size-fits-all approach of putting glasses or contact lens numbers directly on the cornea, this treatment takes into account that every patients’ eyes are different and they are treated accordingly using sophisticated measurements.The information collected is then transferred to the laser for the treatment.


The FDA conducted a large clinical study before officially approving CustomVue. It found that after one year of having “custom” LASIK:

  • 100% of patients could pass a driving test without glasses or contact lenses
  • 98% could see 20/20
  • 70% could see better than 20/20
  • Four times as many people were extremely satisified with their night vision after “custom” LASIK compared to their night vision before with glasses or contact lenses

* “Custom” LASIK is available to patients whose refactive error falls within the parameters set forth by the FDA. Patients interested in taking advantage of this technology should discuss with the surgeon their candidacy for the treatment.
