BladeFree LASIK

Bladefree LASIK
Have you been hearing about Bladefree LASIK? This is also called All-Laser LASIK or Intralase. Dr. Gregory Barban is now approved and trained to perform LASIK with Intralase.

The Intralase platform was initially developed to reduce the rate of flap complications from the flap creation part of LASIK, which was traditionally done with a blade-driven micro-keratome. Although complications from LASIK were rare, often less than 1%, most LASIK complications resulted in the flap creation process. The precision of the Intralase femtosecond laser machine and its ability to create excellent LASIK flaps has been proven to eliminate or greatly reduce flap complications. Once the flap is created with a femtosecond laser the LASIK procedure is then completed with the same excimer laser used in conventional LASIK.

Blade-FREE LASIK is a breakthough for improved safety with LASIK eye surgery and will benefit vision correction candidates

Intralase Blade-FREE Advantages:

• More precise flap creation
• More precise flap thickness
• More uniform flap creation
• Larger candidacy potential

When LASIK first arrived as a laser vision correction procedure, a microkeratome was used to create the corneal flap. (To learn more about traditional LASIK please visit our LASIK eye surgery page) Over the years ophthalmologists have found that when complications arise from LASIK they are typically from a poorly created corneal flap. Unlike mechanical instruments, the IntraLase blade-free LASIK technology is uniquely able to program the dimensions of your flap based on what's best for your eyes. Then the IntraLase laser creates your flap from below the surface of the cornea-without ever cutting it. This process is done in a series of steps:
•    Ultra-fast pulses of laser light position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth predetermined by your doctor.
•    The laser light passes harmlessly through your cornea. Then the laser creates rows of these bubbles just beneath your corneal surface as it moves back and forth across your eye in a uniform plane.
•    Next, the IntraLase laser stacks bubbles around your corneal diameter to create the edges of your flap. These bubbles are stacked at an angle that is determined by your doctor and is individualized to the way your eye is shaped.
•    The process takes only about 30 seconds from start to finish- it's quiet and it's comfortable.
•    Your doctor then gently lifts the flap to allow for the second step of your LASIK treatment. When treatment is complete, the flap is gently put back into position and the healing process begins.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said for the first time it will consider applicants who have undergone two common types of vision-correction surgery: laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, known as LASIK; and photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK.
