The Benefits of Bladeless LASIK
LASIK is a two-step surgery in which a thin layer of the cornea is lifted and the inner cornea is sculpted to correct its shape and allow for better vision. When both steps are done with lasers instead of blades, the surgery is called iLASIK. This is the only form of LASIK surgery performed at Eye Surgical Associates because it is quicker, more accurate than any other method.
LASIK vs. a Lifetime of Contact Lenses
Let us help you put the cost of iLASIK surgery into perspective.
The iLASIK Procedure
In the first step of iLASIK, the specialized IntraLase® laser forms the corneal flap and creates a much cleaner edge than is possible with a blade.
During the second step, our surgeons employ the Advanced CustomVue™ procedure with WaveScan Technology and the VISX® STAR S4 excimer laser. This technology allows our surgeons to measure the imperfections in the eye with a level of precision that’s 25 times that of standard methods. Our surgeons then use the data to create a blueprint of the eye that’s as unique as a fingerprint, allowing for custom vision correction. The process is completely computer-driven, reducing the risk of human error.
At Eye Surgical Associates, your comfort is our priority. The procedure does not hurt and both eyes can be corrected in the same session — in less than 10 minutes per eye. You will notice an improvement in your vision by the next morning, and you can return to your normal activities within a day or two.
