Blade-free LASIK uses a precise laser, in place of metal blades, to create a corneal flap for the laser to then smooth the corneal surface. The Intralase Method* refers to the laser that pulses light through your cornea to form a microscopic bubble layer to gently separate the tissue, forming a smooth and even surface. Using the latest technology, our expert eye surgeons create the corneal flap in just 20 seconds! Upon completion of the surgery, the corneal flap locks into its natural position for rapid healing. The precision of this method is remarkable and produces extremely high success rates.
- Better Vision: More patients in clinical trials achieved vision that was 20/20 or better, with higher vision in low light situations when their LASIK procedure was performed with the Intralase Method.
- Higher Precision: The Intralase Method enables us to tailor the flap according to the shape of your eye. This is important because everyone’s eyes are shaped a little differently. Having a corneal flap that’s individualized to your eye will help ensure that you get the best possible results.
Only your eye doctor can determine if LASIK and the Intralase Method is appropriate for restoring your vision. As with all elective procedures, you should ask your doctor for a complete list of the risks and complications associated with the surgery.
"Thank you for my new eyes! I have been wearing glasses since the age of 7 years old. Now at 37 I am a new woman thanks to LASIK! It was a great experience and the staff was so kind and wonderful to work with."
