CATz Topography Guided Lasik

CATz Custom Topography Guided Lasik

In June of 2014, Dr. Yaldo introduced the most precise lasik treatment available anywhere in the world to Michigan, surpassing even the most advanced wavefront guided lasik options.


In over 90% of cases, CATz topography guided lasik produces “Super-Normal Vision”, which is defined as better than 20-20 vision! The new topography-guided technology — known as Customized Aspheric Treatment Zone (or “CATz”) — maps the patient’s cornea by measuring nearly 7,000 points of light, versus the approximately 200 points of light measured with traditional wavefront technology. 


While just a small number of surgeons in the U.S. are currently trained and certified to offer topography-guided LASIK, the procedure and related technology have been used widely for more than a decade throughout Europe, Asia and South America. “CATz is by far the most precise LASIK technology available, and it represents a huge leap forward,” notes Dr. Yaldo. “I am proud to have played a role in its development over the past several years. I’m also delighted to be one of the first surgeons in the nation to offer what is now the new gold standard for LASIK.”


The most technologically advanced form of custom Lasik.

Topography guided Lasik or CATz  is designed to produce “Supervision” – better than 20-20 vision! The majority of Lasik candidates are ideally suited for conventional or all Laser Lasik. But for those desiring better than 20-20 vision, topography guided lasik is the most advanced option available and the best way to go.


 – Visual imperfections are measured at 200 individual points on the eye

 – Each of the 200 points can be treated individually and precisely

 – Over 95% of patients get 20-15 or better vision.



What is Topography Guided Lasik known as CATz? (Customized Aspheric Treatment Zone)

The pattern of visual imperfections in your eye is as unique to you as your own fingerprint. Thanks to remarkable new Lasik technology, those seeking state-of-the-art procedures can achieve vision correction that actually exceeds the previously accepted definition of “Perfect 20-20 vision.”


In June 2014, Dr. Yaldo of Yaldo Eye Center was one of the first to perform the new FDA approved topography-guided LASIK procedure, introducing a new generation of laser technology designed to be far more precise and with fewer night vision side effects than even the most advanced Wavefront-guided LASIK.


Dr. Yaldo is the only eye surgeon in S.E. Michigan performing CATz, a state of the art procedure and the most precise LASIK ever. Only a small number of surgeons in the U.S. are currently trained and certified to offer topography-guided LASIK, or CATz:


 – Visual imperfections are measured at 7000 individual points on the eye

 – Creates a topographic map of the cornea that shows even the most subtle distortions

 – 50% of CATz patients achieve “Supervision” or better than 20/20


“CATz is by far the most precise LASIK technology available, and it represents a huge leap forward,” notes Dr. Yaldo. “I am proud to have played a role in its development over the past several years. I’m also delighted to be one of the first surgeons in the nation to offer what is now the new gold standard for LASIK.”


CATz treats patients with nearsightedness and astigmatism (blurry or distorted vision caused by irregular curvature of the eye). It is also the first LASIK technology to demonstrate improved night vision after surgery (compared to using glasses or contact lenses).


Patients interested in learning more about CATz topography-guided LASIK should call (800) 398-EYES and set up a free evaluation.


Like conventional Lasik, this is an outpatient procedure. You’ll receive topical anesthetic drop and possibly a Valium. Your recovery will be short and relatively comfortable. Most patients are ready to resume normal activity within just a day or two.
