INTRALASE LASIK (Custom Intralase Lasik): Latest Technology offered at Global Laser Vision
New Femtosecond Intralase technology (All Laser Custom Lasik) has made custom Lasik at our center 100% blade-free Lasik experience . Custom Intralase Lasik or All Laser Custom Intralase Lasik refers to a procedure where an Intralase laser is used to create a flap and a Custom Laser (for example a Visx Custom Laser) is used to correct the patient’s unique imperfections at the corneal plane (corneal Aberrations), so that they can achieve their best vision, thereby reducing their dependency on contact lenses or eyeglasses
How does Intralase Laser Create a flap?
- First IntraLase Laser uses ultrafast pulses of laser light to position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth determined by the doctor.
- Intralase laser light then passes harmlessly through the cornea. This laser then creates rows of bubbles just beneath the corneal surface as it moves back and forth across the eye in a uniform plane.
- IntraLase laser finally stacks bubbles around the corneal diameter to create the edges of the flap. The bubbles are stacked at an angle that is determined by the doctor and is individualized to the way one’s eye is shaped.
- This whole process from start to finish only takes about 30 seconds. It’s quiet and it’s comfortable.
- Following the creation of the flap, the surgeon then gently lifts the corneal flap to allow for the second step of the LASIK treatment, the reshaping of the cornea by the custom Laser or the CustomVue Laser. When treatment is complete, the flap easily “locks” back into position and rapidly begins to heal.
- Your Lasik surgery is complete!
100% Bladeless IntraLase: Custom Lasik in San Diego
At Global Laser Vision Center, all our procedures are 100% bladeless. Bladeless Lasik affords us the utmost precision during Lasik when it comes to creating a flap. Older technologies using a Microkeratome (bladed instrument) are not as precise in creating the flap and this becomes of paramount importance, especially in patients with thinner corneas or higher prescription where an exact measure of the flap thickness can mean the difference between being able to perform the Lasik procedure or not. Our advanced Intralase technology allows us a level of accuracy that is just not available with the older technologies. This will in turn mean a safer Lasik procedure and the most predictable visual outcome for the patient. IntraLase advantages as compared to the older Microkeratome technology includes:
- Lower risk of corneal flap complications with Intralase.
- Lower risk of postoperative complications.
- More accurate and predictable flaps, especially important in patient with thin corneas or high prescriptions.
The dream of being able to see clearer has now become a reality for thousands of people, thanks to Lasik. The treatment is simple, fast and gives individuals the freedom to enjoy life without the need for contact lenses or glasses. Here at GLV, we have treated patients just like you who are looking to dramatically improve their eyesight and way of life.
