What Makes The iLASIK Procedure Unique?Tuesday, December 26th, 2017, 10:00 am
Do you realize that no two eyes are exactly the same, including your own? Each one is as unique as your fingerprints. Consequently, correcting your vision shouldn’t be a “one size fits all” approach. It requires a precise treatment plan utilizing today’s advanced state-of-the-art technology to give you optimum results. And isn’t that what you expect?
If you are tired of wearing glasses or contacts, or if you have reached the point where you can no longer tolerate your contact lenses, maybe it’s time to find out about the iLASIK procedure and why it is unique.
What Is iLASIK
iLASIK allows your surgeon to offer a personalized treatment to correct each of the imperfections in your two eyes.
Your doctor can now improve your vision with a more precise treatment instead of the same procedure as everyone else.
It works in conjunction with iDesign technology: to measure your individual vision issues, create a 3D high-definition representation of each eye, and results in your very best vision correction.
Dr. Skouras then uses this information to plan and personalize your vision treatment. Picture a clearer more precise vision outcome.
How Is iLASIK Different From Traditional LASIK
With iLASIK technology each step of your laser vision correction treatment is completely customized utilizing the most advanced laser technology.
iLASIK in conjunction with the advanced Intralase platform creates the flap using laser pulses from a femtosecond laser. This is frequently known as all-laser LASIK.
With older LASIK procedures the surgeon uses a hand held device called a microkeratome to create the flap prior to treatment.
Finally, the Visx excimer laser changes the shape of your cornea using the blueprint from iDesign producing a personalized treatment.
Advantages of iLASIK
Clinical studies have discovered that there are a number of advantages of iLASIK vs traditional LASIK:
- All laser LASIK uses a femtosecond laser to create the flap. This method is safer with fewer complications than with a microkeratome
- The Intralase laser creates a thinner flap than with a microkeratome
- It reduces the incidences of dry eye, halos, and night glare
- There is much less postoperative incidence of astigmatism resulting from surgery
- Patients experience a faster visual recovery with an Intralase laser created flap
You can continue to live life hampered by glasses and contacts, or you can choose to live a lens-free lifestyle. If you have been searching for a way to improve your vision, iLASIK may just be the answer. Safer, more precise, customized vision correction has arrived. The choice is yours.
