IntraLase is the most effective and advanced way of creating the flap in the eye during LASIK surgery.
This blade-free process uses Femtosecond laser pulses moving at a quadrillionth of a second to create the flap and deliver outstanding results.
How Does IntraLase Work?
Tiny pulses of laser light moving at a quadrillionth of a second each pass harmlessly through the outer portion of your cornea, forming a uniform layer of microscopic bubbles just beneath the surface of the eye.
The exact dimensions of this layer of bubbles are determined by your Surgeon based on a detailed analysis of your eye. These tiny but highly effective pulses of laser light are computer controlled for maximum precision and the IntraLase flap creation process takes about 15 to 20 seconds per eye to complete.
The Surgeon then lifts the flap to apply the LASIK procedure and the laser is then applied to the underlying surface to reshape the corenea. This is entirely painless. This operation takes as little as 30 seconds to complete and after this, your eye begins to heal at a rapid rate.
