The IntraLase™ FS laser offers a less invasive, more precise alternative to the traditional LASIK procedure, which eliminates the use of a microkeratome blade for the creation of a flap in the cornea. This procedure uses a computer-controlled laser to create a flap that is thinner and more accurate for the individual patient. The IntraLase FS laser has been used to treat over 1 million patients for laser vision correction, and offers superior results with increased patient comfort.
As the LASIK procedure continues to improve, the IntraLase™ FS laser is at the forefront of new technology. This device creates a thin, uniform flap with precise sizing and location to specifically meet the visual needs of the patient. The IntraLase™ FS laser also offers the surgeon more control during the procedure as it delivers consistent, effective results.
Although the LASIK procedure has been performed for years with minimal risk of complications; most complications that did occur were a result of the microkeratome blade. The IntraLase™ FS laser eliminates these risks and is considered to be up to 100 times more accurate in creating the flap than the traditional blade approach.
