IntraLase™ FS Laser


There’s Only One IntraLase™ FS Laser System

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.

bullet Our 4th-generation laser is designed as a primary laser for LASIK procedures and advanced corneal surgery procedures
bullet 60 kHz performance delivers microkeratome speed and laser precision
bullet Better biomechanical stability vs. a microkeratome 
bullet Lower induced high-order aberrations vs. a microkeratome 
bullet 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
bullet Uncorrected Vision
bullet Through one week postop, eight times more IntraLase eyes achieved 20/20 or better uncorrected vision compared to PRK eyes1
bullet Superiority continued at one month, where 45% more IntraLase eyes achieved 20/20 or better uncorrected vision compared to PRK eyes1
bullet Best Corrected Vision
bullet Clinically and statistically significant improvement through one month with LASIK with the IntraLase Method over PRK when comparing baseline BCVA and postop BCVA1
bullet 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:

bullet Minimal risk of sight-threatening events (free caps, globe penetration, buttonhole flaps, decentered flaps, and/or incomplete cuts)
bullet No risk of corneal abrasion
bullet Reduced risk of dry eye
