Intralase

INTRALASE

Intralase is a specialized femtosecond laser used for creating the corneal flap in flap-based procedures like LASIK. It is completely different than the excimer laser used in LASIK for reshaping the cornea. In some instances, both the femtosecond and excimer LASERs are combined to perform the LASIK procedure. This is referred to as IntraLASIK.

Intralase is used to create a flap when the surgeon and/or the patient do not desire to use a blade to create the LASIK flap. While it is true that Intralase is more precise at creating corneal flaps of specified thicknesses, not all research indicates that it is any safer than flaps created with a blade. You and your doctor can discuss the option of incorporating Intralase technology into your LASIK procedure. Call the Texas Vision & Laser Center today for a consultation.
