The IntraLase Method, iLASIK is a 100% blade-free technique. A laser instead of a blade is used to perform the critical first step in the LASIK procedure: creating the corneal flap. This prepares the eye for the second step of the LASIK procedure, where an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision.
Our doctors have over 15 years of experience performing LASIK surgery. They are committed to providing only the best technology for their patients and have chosen iLASIK as their preferred laser vision correction method.
iLASIK is the culmination of more than a decade of extensive medical research. Developed by AMO/VISX and perfected by IntraLase technology, for the first time a laser refractive surgical company has combined wavefront analysis, excimer laser technology and blade-free flap creation into one procedure.
Conventional LASIK is a very successful procedure with impressive results. But, Ophthalmologists and visual scientists have drawn from over 30 years of experience and research to perfect LASIK technology. The result is iLASIK.
iLASIK flaps are more predictable. The flap architecture can be better controlled. The cornea is smoother. This results in a safer, better centered, individualized treatment which leads to better daytime and nighttime vision.
This state of the art procedure is now available at Eye Physicians of Long Beach. Dr. Martinez explains, “By combining CustomVue wavefront technology with VISX™ Star4 active tracking capability and a blade-free Femtosecond Laser for an ALL-laser procedure has been thoroughly tested and scrutinized by doctors and scientists. It is clear now that iLASIK truly represents a technological combination unmatched in vision correction.”
Approximately 32,000,000 LASIK procedures have been performed to date, making it the most common elective vision procedure in the U.S. In fact, all branches of the U.S. military and NASA have approved LASIK for their servicemen and women, thanks to studies using iLASIK technology.
If you are 21 years old or over, and wear glasses or contact lenses, you may be a candidate for iLASIK. Call Eye Physicians today and find out!
