What You Should Know About the World’s Most Advanced LASIK Surgery

Gone are the days of blade surgeries and traditional medical technologies – over recent decades, surgical techniques, tools, and procedures have advanced rapidly, making a huge mark in the medical world. Among these are LASIK surgery. iLASIK is the most technologically advanced LASIK surgery available today with its completely blade-free and fully-customizable features. iLASIK is undoubtedly the best laser vision correction choice when it comes to achieving clear and crisp eyesight. This bladeless LASIK surgery is offered to Alabama residents in Huntsville and Decatur by the trusted hands of Laser Eye Center’s Dr. Lee himself.

Before deciding to have the LASIK procedure, it is important for patients to be educated on the procedure; the safest and most advanced laser vision correction in Alabama: iLASIK.


The iLASIK Procedure

iLASIK is a fast and painless procedure equipped with an integrated all-laser feature to facilitate safety for patients as well as effective results. This all-laser LASIK technology is able to capture a 3D image of the eye which provides the doctor with a detailed map of the eye. This image is then transmitted onto a computer monitor which guides the laser to the parts of the eye which need adjustment, ensuring an accurate, precise, individualized vision restoration.

Benefits of the Premium iLASIK Technology

iLASIK’s effectiveness is attributed to its two basic components: Intralase Laser and Advanced CustomVue Technology.

The Intralase laser replaces the traditional microkeratome to create the corneal flap. It is three times faster, allowing for shorter surgery time and a more comfortable procedure. A reverse entry angle is also utilized, which makes the flap more maintained and quick to heal. Lastly, since iLASIK is highly individualized, previously ineligible patients, such as those with thin corneas and astigmatism, now qualify for all-laser LASIK surgery.

Advanced Customvue technology is 25 times more precise than standard measurements and is very sensitive to tiny movements of the eye during surgery. This advantage locks the eye at the slightest hint of movement, making for ultimate precision.

Results Supported by Research

Clinical studies were conducted to individuals who had LASIK one year after treatment to determine the effectiveness of the procedure. Most patients experienced vision even better than 20/20. Also, 100% of patients who had myopia or nearsightedness passed a standard driving test without the need for corrective eyewear. Four times as many patients stated that they were more satisfied with their vision after iLASIK compared to when they used prescription glasses and corrective lenses. These patients were able to see clearly without the use of eyeglasses, proving iLASIK to be a perfect match for an active, on-the-go lifestyle.
