IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK
The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your LASIK flap — the thin flap of tissue that the doctor creates to perform your LASIK procedure. The IntraLase Method can only be performed using the IntraLase Laser. Millions of procedures have been performed safely and effectively using the IntraLase Method. With the IntraLase Method, you can have a LASIK procedure that’s 100% blade free, exceptionally advanced, and has been shown to improve outcomes for more patients.
With the IntraLase Method, tiny pulses of laser light, a quadrillionth of a second each, pass harmlessly
through the outer portion of your cornea and form a uniform layer of microscopic bubbles just beneath the surface of your eye. The IntraLase flap creation process takes about 15 to 20 seconds per eye and a total of 10 minutes for the entire LASIK procedure. When it’s time for your LASIK treatment to be performed, your doctor easily lifts the flap to apply the LASIK treatment.
The IntraLase Method also delivers outstanding results and has been shown to improve outcomes for more patients. 1
