There are several ways of performing refractive surgery but LASIK is still by far the most popular. Recent developments in LASIK technology have made this procedure more predictable, accurate and safer than ever before. Groundbreaking technology has been discovered to minimize the side effects and improve the probability of successful outcomes. Lasik technology is one of the main factors to be considered when selecting a provider for your surgery.
In an effort to make LASIK safer, the IntraLase Corporations has introduced a new device known as All-Laser Lasik or IntraLase. This bladeless method makes use of a computer-guided laser to create the hinged corneal flap. IntraLase allows patients with large pupils or thin corneas to undergo LASIK surgery. The IntraLase System minimizes the risk of complications, providing patients with more precise results.
Recent developments in the excimer laser technology have made this device incredibly precise. The VISX Star4 laser is commonly known for its performance and dependability and it is nowadays used by an increasingly large number of refractive surgeons worldwide. This excimer laser system makes use of exclusive VISX technologies, allowing surgeons to provide faster treatments while maximizing patient safety.
The advances in microkeratome technology made LASIK one of the safest surgeries in all of medicine. Modern microkeratomes or hand-held blades provide increased safety and accuracy for LASIK surgeons, reducing the risk of flap complications.
