Higher order visual defects

If many objects remain nebulous to you


Individual higher order visual defects differ greatly. Approximately 80 percent occur on the corneal surface and merely 20 percent occur in the lens or in the vitreous body. Higher order defects cause you difficulties especially at night or at dusk or dawn. This is because the rays of light do not meet as a single point, but instead are dispersed into two or more points. When the pupil dilates your sight becomes significantly worse or you feel easily blinded.

Treatment: In order to optimally treat higher order visual defects, they must be exactly localized. The so-called wavefront technology, together with the special technique of corneal wavefront and ocular wavefront-guided treatment, allows an individual and exactly adapted therapy.
