IntraLase Technology at Optilase

The first step of the LASIK Laser Eye Surgery procedure is creating the protective flap in the cornea, which is put back over the eye after surgery to protect it.
The IntraLase method is the most advanced and accurate manner in which to create the flap during your LASIK procedure. This blade-free method uses Femtosecond (quadrillionth of a second) pulses of laser to create the flap.
The IntraLase method delivers outstanding results and it has been shown to improve outcomes for more patients.
Intralase delivers outstanding results. Patients generally experience faster recovery, fewer LASIK flap-related complications and fewer induced higher order aberrations (which may contribute to visual disturbances such as glare and halos, particularly at night time).
The IntraLase Method explained
|With IntraLase, tiny pulses of laser light, a quadrillionth of a second each, pass harmlessly through the outer portion of your cornea and form a uniform layer of microscopic bubbles just beneath the surface of your eye.||The exact dimensions of this layer of bubbles are determined by your surgeon based on what’s best for your eye, and are computer controlled for maximum precision. The IntraLase flap creation process takes about 15 to 20 seconds per eye and a total of 10 minutes for the entire LASIK procedure.||When it’s time for your LASIK procedure to be performed, your surgeon easily lifts the flap to apply the LASIK procedure. When LASIK is complete, a flap created using IntraLase is able to “lock” back into place. Your eye then begins to heal rapidly.|
Benefits of the IntraLase Method
- With IntraLase the recovery rates are excellent, because the flap fits so neatly back into place
- IntraLase enables complete tailoring of the corneal flap for the needs of every patient, and for each individual eye (all eyes are different)
- IntraLase can improve precision and visual results of LASIK, whether you choose to have a standard or CustomVue procedure
- IntraLase is of particular benefit to patients with steep, flat or thin corneas, who wouldn’t be eligible for surgery using a standard microkeratome (older technique using a blade to create the flap)
- In general, laser eye surgery has a very low complication rate – and the IntraLase reduces the possibility for complications even further
