Why Is Intralase Wavefront LASIK Laser Eye Surgery Different?
Traditional LASIK laser eye surgery involves the use of an extremely fine hand-held blade or laser to slice a fine flap into the cornea, allowing the introduction of an excimer laser to work on the corneal cells beneath the flap, reshaping them in order to correct imperfect vision.
Intralase Wavefront LASIK Laser Eye Surgery replaces the hand-held blade or laser with a highly-accurate femtosecond laser which can create a corneal flap customised to the individual eye with significantly greater precision then the previous manual cutting technique allowed.
This new laser eye surgery technology means that healing times are reduced, the risk of infection is minimised and a wider range of patients can benefit from corrective eye surgery.
