This IntraLase® Method of LASIK eye surgery has become very popular among surgeons and patients. Many patients are seeking a safer LASIK procedure with reduced rates of flap complications.
This IntraLase® Method has reported fewer flap complications than traditional LASIK with a microkeratome. They call this blade-FREE LASIK procedure ALL-LASER LASIK because instead of using a microkeratome blade to create the corneal flap, the eye surgeon uses the IntraLase laser. Once the flap is made the procedure is similar to traditional LASIK. An excimer laser is used for the actual treatment.
