Intralase / IntraLASIK
By Staff in Categories: LASIK
Intralase / IntraLASIK - essentially an ALL LASER Lasik procedure that dispenses altogether with a blade (used in traditional Lasik). Centre for Sight introduced this technology to the UK in 2004 and has had a long head start. The video shows what takes place during the procedure including the surgeon's view. Advantages: precision, uniform flap thickness/thinness - Centre for Sight apparently like using thin flaps (100 microns or less) as they "provide minimal bio-mechanical change, better maintenance of corneal strength, better vision and less dry". Interestingly "Thin flap lasik with Intralase" has been termed SBK or "Sub-Bowman's Keratomileusis" by Stephen Slade and Dan Durrie in the US. You first heard it here at Lasik Eyes (although Centre for Sight have been doing this for over 3 years !)
