Increasingly, successful LASIK procedures have one thing in common — they use AMO’s IntraLase™ FS Laser System. IntraLase™ FS Technology clearly delivers clinical advantages to enhance our practice.
Our 4th-generation laser is designed as a primary laser for LASIK procedures and advanced corneal surgery procedures
60 kHz performance delivers microkeratome speed and laser precision
Better biomechanical stability vs. a microkeratome
Lower induced high-order aberrations vs. a microkeratome
Better refractive outcomes vs. a microkeratome
In a recent study (Sub-Bowman’s Keratomileusis with IntraLase™ FS Laser System vs. PRK), IntraLase treated eyes demonstrated clinically and statistically better visual acuities (uncorrected and best corrected) through one month postop compared to surface treatment.1
Through one week postop, eight times more IntraLase eyes achieved 20/20 or better uncorrected vision compared to PRK eyes1
Superiority continued at one month, where 45% more IntraLase eyes achieved 20/20 or better uncorrected vision compared to PRK eyes1
Best Corrected Vision
Clinically and statistically significant improvement through one month with LASIK with the IntraLase Method over PRK when comparing baseline BCVA and postop BCVA1
At one month, more than twice as many IntraLase eyes showed BCVA gain compared to PRK eyes1

By replacing the blade commonly used for corneal flap creation with a femtosecond laser, AMO® has made LASIK eye surgery safer than ever before. The IntraLase™ FS Laser System delivers micron-level accuracy 100% greater than a microkeratome for more accurate and consistent flap thickness — which is critical for a successful LASIK outcome.
Retrospective analysis comparing LASIK results with IntraLase™ FS Technology versus the two leading microkeratomes demonstrated that IntraLase™ FS Laser System performed better in three areas important to LASIK results and safety: flap thickness, induced astigmatism, and cell injury.3 There are fewer flap-related complications with the IntraLase Method:
