Individuals suffering from refractive errors have been able to take advantage
of LASIK surgery for the past several years. Though this highly safe and
effective procedure has provided clear vision for thousands of people,
LASIK surgery experts have improved upon this procedure with the development
of Intralase LASIK. Intralase LASIK provides a superior LASIK surgery
experience by eliminating the need for the
eye surgeon to use a blade and make an incision in the cornea. Those suffering from
myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism can reap extensive eyesight benefits
from Intralase LASIK.
Intralase LASIK surgery provides a more accurate surgical procedure as
a result of its precise computing technology. This system allows an ophthalmologist
to map a patient’s eye with imaging software and administer treatment
without manual error. This laser innovation allows the ophthalmologist
to provide personalized treatment each and every time the Intralase LASIK
surgery system is used.
Lower Chance of Complications
Because the risk of blade error and damage is removed with the Intralase
LASIK surgery process, patients who undergo this procedure can enjoy effective results with
a lower risk for complications. The majority of complications associated
with LASIK surgery stem from blade activity, but the Intralase LASIK system
can now provide a safer and more secure surgical experience.
Decreased Recovery Period
Along with increased precision and lessened surgical risks, Intralase LASIK
allows patients to recover sooner from their procedure and enjoy their
improved vision much sooner. Given these benefits of the Intralase LASIK
surgery system, patients who have been diagnosed with a refractive error
now have even more reasons to undergo this procedure and achieve the clear
eyesight they’ve always wanted.
To find out if you are an eligible candidate for Intralase LASIK surgery,
