Laser vision correction is a technique that appeared more than 2 decades ago. Its main use is to help us walk away from the necessity of wearing glasses or contact lenses. So, if you have experience of being “four-eyeed”, then this technology will make what you have been dreaming for many years come true. You must be familiar with the problems you encounter in everyday life when wearing glasses and about the undesirable consequences of wearing contact lenses. Therefore leave these clearly outdated means of vision correction and turn to the high-tech methods to improve vision, laser vision correction.
It seems surprising that a procedure that lasts less than 30 seconds per eye can solve the problem that has been plaguing your life for many years. Of course there are “well-wishers” to discourage you from this decisive step. There is some risk involved, as with any surgical procedure. But you can be sure that whatever happens, no matter how bad your vision is, after surgery you will see much better than before. During the correction of vision there has been no known case of total loss of sight in the world.
Intralasik is the best vision correction technology
IntraLasik is a term for excimer laser vision correction technology using a Femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap. It got its name from the word IntraLase – a brand of the first production of a Femtosecond laser company AMO (USA). Otherwise, it is also called All-laser Lasik.
The principal difference IntraLasik from other methods of laser vision correction is to use a laser rather than a mechanical microkeratome to create the corneal flap. At the same time IntraLasik can be combined with any excimer laser technology designed for LASIK, including the standard ablation, ablation based on the WaveFront and aspheric ablation.
Studies have shown the advantages of using a Femtosecond laser. According to Dr. William Boothe, IntraLasik provides more accurate thickness, shape and contour of the flap throughout the slice. The program allows you to create a flap of any size and position of the leg of corneal flap in any meridian. The surface of stromal bed is also smoother.
However, the main practical advantage of IntraLasik is the possibility of forming a thinner corneal flap in comparison with a mechanical microkeratome, which is very important for carrying out excimer laser vision correction for patients with high myopia and thin corneas. In addition, the Femtosecond laser is used for different types of lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty.
