Open your eyes to IntraLase at Optilase Northern Ireland

06 Apr 2014

Whether it’s the latest smartphone or must-have app, if you are a fan of fiddling with the newest technology but are being held back by old fashioned glasses, then perhaps it’s time you considered Laser Eye Surgery with IntraLase technology at Optilase.

IntraLase is one of the latest and most advanced versions of Laser Eye Surgery that has made the concept of “going under the knife” completely redundant as it is a 100% bladeless procedure.

Thousands of Optilase patients from all over Northern Ireland have already embraced this new procedure to rediscover life without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

What kind of technology is used during an IntraLase procedure?

Most Laser Eye Surgery procedures begin with a Femtosecond Laser to create a corneal flap on the surface of the eye and expose the inner cornea.

An Excimer Laser is then used to remove tiny amounts of corneal tissue to allow for clear vision at any distance without prescription lenses.

IntraLase differs from traditional Laser Eye Surgery by way of how the Femtosecond Laser is used to create the all-important corneal flap.

The computer-controlled Femtosecond Laser injects air into the cornea to produce a layer of microscopic air bubbles at a predetermined depth (usually 105 microns) to separate the outer epithelial layer from the inner stromal layer.

This painless and bladeless incision only takes 15 seconds per eye and can even be performed on patients with thinner-than-average corneas.

The corneal flap is then lifted aside to allow for the corneal correction to take place as normal using the Excimer Laser, before being reapplied to complete the Laser Eye Surgery procedure.

Reasons to consider IntraLase for your refractive error

IntraLase is suitable for treating any of the most common refractive errors found in patients across Northern Ireland, such as short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism.

Additionally, IntraLase offers added benefits to traditional Laser Eye Surgery practices:

  1. Significantly lower risk of corneal flap complications or infections
  2. Suitable for patients with thin corneas
  3. Allows for greater surgical precision
  4. Greater patient comfort and safety
  5. Corneal flap creation can be tailored to suit your natural eye shape
