One of the most remarkable advanced in laser vision correction surgeries was the development of the bladeless procedure. With this new technology, not only did the plethora of options open up for the patient, but the actual procedure became more customized, more precise, with far less risk.
In Bladeless LASIK, a highly specialized laser called the Intralake laser, is directed to the eye ball to create a flap and retract the outermost layer of the cornea. This laser penetration replaces the need of the blade to create the corneal flap, and is exponentially safer, thanks to the technologically advanced computer that is guiding the lasers' every move.
These days, bladeless LASIK is offered far more than conventional LASIK, as many LASIK eye surgeons want to stay on the cutting edge of technology, both with their practices and their equipment. While not always called "bladeless LASIK", this procedure is preferred among patients as well. If you're interested in getting the LASIK procedure, be sure to ask your surgeon if he or she is offering bladeless form of laser vision correction. This customized procedure will be one of the most subtly life-changing things you ever do.
