All Laser LASIK - iLASIK

iLASIK is a breakthrough laser technology used for improved precision, customization, and safety with LASIK eye surgery. LASIK corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. You could be one of the 1.5 million Americans expected to undergo LASIK this year. In fact, LASIK has become the most popular elective surgery in the country.

What is iLASIK?

The iLASIK procedure is an advanced, personalized, laser vision correction treatment using Wavefront-guided, iDesign technology. Some LASIK procedures simply reshape the cornea based on a standard prescription, which means that everyone receives the same treatment. With iLASIK, each step of your vision correction treatment is customized utilizing safe, advanced, laser technology. Just like a fingerprint, each person’s vision is 100% unique to their eyes. iDesign uses a high-definition sensor capturing over 1200 data points to more precisely measure your particular vision imperfections in each eye and deliver a truly personalized treatment.  The “i” in iLASIK stands for innovation and individualization. Our practice offers in-office, all-laser, iLASIK, LASIK guided with iDesign technology. We have the state-of-the-art IFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser and the VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser with iDesign technology. Our on-site laser vision correction  provides our patients with convenience, quality control, latest technology, and personalized care.

iLASIK STEPS

Step 1 - iDesign - Your Personal Vision Profile

Before correcting your vision, your eye doctor will use Wavefront-guided, iDesign technology to create a high-definition, 3D visual representation of each eye. With iDesign, the unique imperfections of the eye are measured 25 times more accurately than the methods that are used for eyeglasses or contacts - detecting details of the eye that were never able to be seen before. Having this kind of information reveals the way that the eyes can process light. This technology produces a fingerprint of your eye for your iLASIK surgeon to personalize your vision correction treatment. With the iDesign system, more people may be eligible for LASIK than with past technology -- allowing doctors to treat higher levels of astigmatism in people with nearsightedness, a wider range of pupil sizes, and those who are 18 years of age and older.
 

 

Step 2 - IntraLase

After creating a vision profile, your eye doctor will make a personalized flap. The flap is created by using a 100% laser approach, called the IntraLase method. This method takes approximately 13 seconds from start to finish; it's quiet and comfortable and is done in a series of steps. First, the ultra-fast pulses of the IFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser light position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth predetermined by your doctor. Then, the laser light passes harmlessly through your cornea creating rows of these bubbles just beneath your corneal surface as it moves back and forth across your eye in a uniform plane. Finally, the 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 are individualized to the way your eye is shaped. Studies have shown that flaps created with the IntraLase method have fewer complications and greater stability than the flaps created with a blade.

IntraLase All-Laser Advantages:

- Greater flap stability
- More precise and uniform flap creation
- More precise flap thickness
- Larger candidacy potential
- May experience fewer dry eye symptoms
- May have faster visual recovery

Step 3 - VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser - Your Personalized Vision Correction

After the LASIK flap has been created and folded back, the VISX STAR laser will gently reshape the cornea using your distinct iDesign measurements for correction. Our doctors will then reposition the LASIK flap, completing the iLASIK procedure. The VISX STAR laser has been used to perform the most laser vision correction surgeries with the longest track record for safety and efficacy of all excimer lasers. Most patients can see 20/20 or better, just one month after treatment. Many patients also achieve better vision than they previously had while wearing eyeglasses or contacts.

Step 4 - Enjoy Your Visual Results!

The iLASIK procedure guided by iDesign technology produces amazing results! After surgery, these patients reported high satisfaction rates as well as improvements in all areas of vision well being, such as their quality of vision and vision needed for healthy, active lifestyles. Based on an Abbott Medical Optics Inc. study, a clinical evaluation of 493 patients showed the following results only 1 month after treatment:
