Intralase Bladeless Lasik
Experience the precision of one-micron sized
The LASIK procedure consists of two distinct steps: flap creation and custom excimer photoablation. Until the advent of Femtosecond laser technology, refractive surgeons have depended on a bladed microkeratome instrument to create the LASIK flap. The quality of flaps created in this manner has been dependable but can often create suboptimal results that might adversely influence the quality of visual outcome. With the arrival of INTRALASE FEMTOSECOND technology, the flap creation step has reached a new level of accuracy and precision.
Intralase creates a LASIK flap, making use of precisely placed one-micron sized pulses of infrared light energy. The pulses can be aligned at any depth or orientation allowing the surgeon to produce a customized flap for each patient. Intralase flaps are uniform, smooth, and allow for precise re-alignment following the excimer laser treatment. They are less likely to dislocate following surgery, wrinkle or have an adverse effect on visual outcomes and thus add a new dimension of safety to the LASIK procedure.
