Can you tell me about custom lasik?

Custom LASIK: Custom lasik, is in my opinion the best technology available. Instead of using the refraction (which is better 1 or 2) it measures thousands of points across the visual system giving a treatment that is precise to each person. The benefit is the ability to obtain better vision than can be achieved with the best pair of glasses or contacts and a comparative reduction in night time glare.
