Description: CATz Custom Lasik technology provides eye surgeons with uniquely detailed topographic maps of a patient’s cornea prior to treatment and an additional map of cornea depicting how it should appear after laser vision correction. These topographic maps enable the Lasik surgeon or ophthalmologist to easily correct refractive errors in the eye with unparalleled precision and accuracy. All types of Lasik Eye Surgery Michigan consist of correcting a refractive error by reshaping the cornea allowing light to more accurately enter the eye. Operating an excimer laser, the surgeon directs pulses of invisible ultraviolet into the eye to correct the shape. Each pulse of the laser removes a microscopic amount of corneal tissue. When treating nearsightedness, one of the most common refractive errors, the laser pulses are fired in a specific pattern designed to flatten the patient’s cornea. The ultraviolet light emitted by Excimer lasers does not penetrate through the flesh of the eye, sparing the lens, retina, and the iris from harm. Similar to traditional Lasik eye surgery, CATz Custom Lasik utilities “manifest refraction” measurements when planning out the direction of the laser in the treatment of refractive error.
