With most things you will ever do in life, using the best gear and technology will make a huge difference in the level of performance you can expect. LASIK is no different. When your procedure is performed using the best technology, you will be able to achieve more precise results that will provide you with the crisp, sharp vision you deserve.
At Eye Care Specialists, we understand the tremendous benefits LASIK provides to our patients, and we are committed to helping you achieve the best results possible. That is why we use the latest and most advanced technology available with all of our patients.
We understand that some of the information regarding our state-of-the-art LASIK technology may be a bit complicated, and we are happy to explain it to you in greater detail. Please call 888-EYE-2010 to schedule your free LASIK consultation at our Northeastern Pennsylvania ophthalmology office.
State-of-the-Art Femtosecond Laser for Bladeless LASIK Procedures
In traditional LASIK procedures, a microkeratome blade is used to create a thin, hinged flap in your cornea (the outer surface of your eye). While excellent results can be achieved using a microkeratome blade, a newer option for flap creation has proven to be even more effective. This option uses a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap.
The femtosecond laser provides you with several important benefits compared with a microkeratome blade:
Faster flap creation
Increased precision, ensuring the flap creation is more even
Reduces the risk of flap complications
Our ophthalmologists use a femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap with all of our LASIK patients, providing a bladeless procedure that ensures the best possible results.
We use wavefront diagnosis with all of our LASIK patients to provide a truly customized procedure. During wavefront diagnosis, computer imaging technology records detailed measurements of your eyes. These measurements are used to create a 3D map of each eye, improving the precision that can be achieved during your procedure.
Wavefront diagnosis provides our patients with several important benefits:
Improved contrast sensitivity
Greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision or better
Clearer night vision
Reduced risk of LASIK complications
Reduced risk of glare, halos, or starbursts
IntraLase technology is used with bladeless LASIK procedures. It utilizes the measurements obtained from wavefront diagnosis in order to achieve more refined results. The wavefront measurements are loaded into the laser and used to improve the precision of your procedure.
IntraLase technology provides you with several important benefits:
Creates a smoother surface for your corneal flap
Allows patients with thin corneas who normally may not be ideal LASIK candidates to successfully undergo the procedure
Achieves sharper vision in dim light conditions
Increases your chances of achieving 20/20 vision
