Bladeless LASIK Technology
In the past, the corneal flap was created by a mechanical device, which used a blade (microkeratome). Today, we offer our patients ALL LASER LASIK using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap, thereby adding a higher level of safety and precision to the LASIK procedure. Using this blade-free LASIK procedure, the IntraLase laser delivers over millions of tiny, micron-sized bubbles that gently separate the layers of corneal tissue. This creates a customized corneal flap of the desired thickness, size, orientation, and location. This unprecedented level of control also allows more patients to qualify for LASIK and virtually eliminates many of the complications associated with the past mechanical approach.
