The initial step in a LASIK procedure involves creating a corneal flap. VICTORIA EYE offers blade free, all laser flap creation using the Intralase femtosecond laser. The Intralase is the newest and safest method for creating a corneal flap.
Unlike the older method microkeratome (“blade LASIK”), all the parameters of an Intralase flap can be pre-programed. This allows the surgeon to customize a patient’s flap thickness, diameter, and edge profile, in order to optimize each patient’s visual outcome, while reducing patient risk. Once the flap is created, an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea. VICTORIA EYE offers only state of the art Visx iDesign Wavefront Guided excimer laser treatments. Traditional standard (conventional) excimer platforms are not used. The flap is then positioned back in place and begins to heal immediately.
For most patients who undergo Intralase LASIK they are able to return to normal activities such as driving and work within 24-48 hours.
