The IntraLase® Method Means Truly Blade-Free LASIK

Intralase Method - Blade-Free LASIKWe know the decision to have LASIK surgery is a big one, so we take great care to determine what’s best for you as our patient. That’s why we offer bladefree LASIK treatment using the IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) method.

With the IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) method, pulses of laser light create your corneal flap, which is then lifted so the next step of LASIK—the reshaping of your cornea—can be performed. When your LASIK treatment is over, the flap is securely repositioned into place. This bladeless, computer-guided technology is 100% more accurate than most of the mechanical microkeratomes (hand-held devices with a thin metal blade) that surgeons may also use to create a corneal flap.

IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) Assurance and Comfort
The IntraLase method has been used successfully on hundreds of thousands of eyes and we trust this advanced technology to deliver exceptional results. Our commitment is to provide you with the ultimate in comfort, safety, and outstanding vision. LASIK with IntraLase can help you achieve all of this—while it delivers the added assurance of knowing you’re being treated with the most advanced technology there is.

IntraLase MachineLASIK performed with IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) is preferred by patients.
In a survey of clinical practices, the vision in the IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) -treated eye was preferred up to 3 to 1 by patients over the vision in the mechanical blade–treated eye (among those who stated a preference).

LASIK performed with IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) delivers superior visual results.
In a clinical study comparing the IntraLase laser to the leading microkeratome, more patients achieved 20/20 vision or better in standard and custom LASIK surgery when the IntraLase method was used to create the corneal flap.

Because of the superior accuracy of the IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery (iLASIK) method, certain patients who were ineligible for LASIK may now be able to have treatment. Ask your doctor today if you are a candidate.

Suitable for the following eye problems:

Who is a good candidate?
Several factors are considered in determining candidacy for refractive surgery.

  • Amount of refractive error (or necessary correction)
  • Age of patient (at least 18 years of age)
  • Stability of refractive error
  • Health of eyes

You are an unlikely candidate if you are under 18 years of age, have had corneal surgery or scarring, or have sight in only one eye. If you are not completely satisfied with contact lenses or glasses, refractive surgery may be an option to consider in the future.
