Zyoptik laser corrects lower and higher order Aberrations

What is aberrations?

Aberrations are imperfections of the eye that affects visual acuity,contrast sensitivity and over all clarity of your vision.

Aberrations are of two types :

  • Lower order aberration .
  • Higher order aberrations.

Lower order aberration refer to the refractive errors of the eye like Myopia (short sight),Hyperopia(long sight)and astigmatism. Such lower order aberrations are relatively simpler and only affect how much you can see in terms of distances.Lower order aberrations are corrected with glasses,contact lenses and Lasik procedure .But these are not the solutions that permanently correct your eyes.

Higher order aberrations are more complex imperfection of different parts of the eye causing disturbances such as glare,halos,loss of contrast sensitivity and poor vision in the dark which affect activities like driving.

Higher order aberrations could be corrected by customized wavefront Lasik procedure.
