IntraLase is the first “blade-free” laser technology for creating the corneal flap in the initial step of the LASIK procedure. IntraLase is FDA-approved and it further minimizes the microkeratome-related complications of LASIK, be it standard or custom.
IntraLase laser beam places a series of computer-guided, tiny bubbles within the central layer of the cornea. This pattern results in a precise corneal flap at a depth and diameter pre-determined by the surgeon. IntraLase technology is a safer, more precise approach in creating the corneal flap in patients whose corneas are thin or have unusual curvatures.
