Your eye is as unique as your own fingerprint, with its own special shape and complex characteristics that make it unlike any other. The best treatment is one that is unique to you. To better understand your particular vision and any impairments you may have, the Zyoptix system maps thousands of data points giving a fully detailed three dimensional picture of your cornea's shape and characteristics. Dr. Hanuch can then provide a unique treatment for each eye, resulting in personalized vision correction that is as individual as your eye.

Small imperfections in the shape of the eye can cause a scattering of light, which in turn can contribute to vision impairment. This scattering of light forms distinct patterns within the eye known as aberrations. The innovative design of the Zyoptix personalized laser vision correction system allows your doctor to measure these aberrations, then plan a treatment that exactly matches the eye's individual vision errors.
