Laser Vision Correction with LASIK – Blade-Free Experience
Welcome to the latest exciting alternative to glasses and contacts. 100% Blade-Free LASIK brings together the science of the Allegretto Wave Excimer Laser and the Intralase FS Laser along with the skill of the surgeon to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK is a brief outpatient procedure that could significantly lessen your dependence on corrective lenses.
Using the Allegretto Wave Excimer Laser, the LASIK procedure reshapes the cornea with the latest technology flying spot laser technology. The Intralase FS Laser is used to creat the flap portion of the procedure that used to have to be made with a mechanical surgical keratome.
LASIK is used to treat low to high amounts of nearsightedness (myopia), astigmatism, and farsightedness (hyperopia). LASIK combines the computer controlled precision of the Allegratto Wave Excimer Laser with the benefits of another type of refractive surgery laser called the Intralase that uses bubbles created by the laser to make a small flap in the outer layer of the cornea.
