The Intralasik process is very comfortable. It is a method that has been applied with eminent effects on hundreds of thousands of eyes and you are able to intrust this innovative technology. We deliver exceptional results for our New York City laser eye surgery patients. We assure you we will provide you with comfort, safety, and outstanding vision.
Lasik with IntraLase can help you achieve all of this while giving you near-perfect vision that will serve you for years to come.
Lasik performed with IntraLase delivers superior results. Contrary to mechanical instruments, IntraLase technology is able to program the dimensions of the flap based on what is best for each individual eye. Next it also creates your flap from below the surface of the cornea without ever cutting it.
First very quick pulses of laser light position microscopic bubbles at a exact depth. The laser light then passes harmlessly through your cornea and creates rows of thes bubbles just beneath your corneal surface as it moves back and forth across your eye in a uniform plane. The IntraLase then stacks bubbles around your corneal width to create the edges of your flap. These bubbles are well stacked at a slant that is decided by your doctor and is individualized to the way each individual eye is shaped. This process takes only about 30 seconds from start to finish. It is quiet and patients claim it is surprisingly comfortable. In the last step of this procedure your doctor will gently lift the flap to allow for the second step of your Lasik treatment. When the treatment is complete, the flap easily locks back into position and begins to heal rather rapidly.
The IntraLase FS laser is a femtosecond laser system that allows Lasik surgeons to offer their Lasik patients a safer, computer-guided alternative to traditional Lasik. With IntraLase, the flap is created by the femtosecond laser instead of a blade. The IntraLase FS aids surgeons and helps avoid complications affiliated with surgical blades. This laser can also change the thickness of the flap,providing for a greater region of treatment. With this new technology, patients who typically were not good candidates for conventional Lasik may be good candidates for IntraLasik.
The IntraLase Laser marks the first significant progression in flap creation technology in about fifty years. With its computer-controlled software, the IntraLase laser brings a level of accuracy and precision to create a flap for Lasik that is not attainable with mechanical, blade based technology. This genuinely all laser approach provides patients with the safest, bladeless alternative to the microkeratome and offers a computer controlled, minimally invasive technique that reliably creates precisely shaped and sized corneal flaps.
This innovation brought about by IntraLasik is truly an all laser procedure and is the single most important advancement in vision correction during the last decade. No flap complications during creation of the flap have been reported using IntaLasik technology. This is truly a significant improvement in Lasik safety and accuracy.
The visual outcomes with IntraLasik are potentially improved, numerous studies have shown more predictable outcomes and decreased touch-up rates. Lasik is very safe. Being it is a truly all laser procedure, it rules out all blade related complications, including infections affiliated with invasive procedures. In more that six million procedures executed worldwide, experienced surgeons have attained exceedingly low flap complication rates (less than 1 in 1,000). Nevertheless, IntraLasik reduces risks further, by more than 90%, because it virtually eliminates complications during the flap creation process. It also provides a level of accuracy that can not be attained with blade associated procedures. It offers a computer controlled, minimally invasive technique that reliably creates accurately shaped and sized corneal flaps. In summary, IntraLasik elevates safety, precision, and predictability to a higher standard.
The visual outcomes with IntraLasik are as good as, and even potentially better than, traditional Lasik. Several studies have shown more predictable outcomes and decreased touch-up rates.
Advanced technologies are usually more expensive for surgeons to employ in their practice. Most patients agree that the added level of safety and assurance offered by IntraLasik is well worth the cost.
In an overview, IntraLasik provides our patients with an additional allowance of safety by eliminating possible complications associated with a mechanical blade.
IntraLasik allows us to perform Lasik on patients with thin corneas because we can create thinner flaps, allowing us to correct more eminent degrees of refractive errors. IntraLasik provides both the patient and the surgeon with a higher level of confidence, knowing the creation of the flap will be without complications. IntraLasik makes laser vision correction an all laser procedure, which significantly adds to its precision and predictability. IntraLasik also created better fitting flaps. Once put back into place, these flaps form a tight seal, making flap disruption after the procedure just about impossible. The corneal flap procedure with IntraLasik, using IntraLase FS Laser is painless and more comfortable as there is much less pressure placed on the cornea.
We know the decision to have Lasik surgery is not an easy decision, so we take great care to decide whats best for you as our patient. The superior exactness of the IntraLase method is preferred by patients. In a study of clinical practices a vision correction with IntraLase was preferred 3 to 1 over vision correction with the mechanical blade. In the same study comparing the IntraLase Laser to the leading blade assisted surgeries more patients attained 20/20 vision of better in standard of CustomLasik surgery when the IntraLase method was used to create the corneal flap. The accuracy of this method allows certain patients who were ineligible for Lasik to now be able to receive treatment. Speak to your doctor today.
