Bladeless custom LASIK
At Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania, we perform a technique called bladeless custom LASIK. This state-of-the-art procedure uses the most advanced technology in eye surgery today, and is widely regarded as the superior form of LASIK vision correction. Both NASA and the U.S. Air Force agree, trusting trust only bladeless LASIK for astronauts and pilots.
What can I expect from the procedure?
LASIK turns out to be much faster than most patients originally think it will be. Bladeless LASIK is one of the safest and most effective surgeries you can have. The procedure has three simple steps: (1) the surgeon first uses a femtosecond laser to create a corneal flap, (2) the flap is gently folded back to expose the cornea, and (3) the surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to correct vision.
Because each patient’s eye is unique, we create a customized map of your corneal surface. The surgeon uses this map as a guide during the procedure to correct the unique steepness or flatness (or both) that your corneal surface may have. Once the surgeon has corrected the refractive error, the corneal flap is put back in place. It will heal on its own, without stitches.
Advantages of Bladeless LASIK
Bladeless LASIK is also called “all laser” LASIK, and offers several advantages. First, because a metal surgical blade is not used, surgical risk is lower with the laser usage. Second, the laser allows surgeons to create a much thinner corneal flap. In turn, this allows not only for more precise vision correction but also for a higher level of vision correction. We can operate on both eyes in the same procedure.
LASIK surgery successfully restores vision in the vast majority of patients, most of whom never have to have further vision correction. Note that the more nearsighted you are, the higher chance there will be for a refinement surgery several years down the road to fine-tune your vision. Many patients, however, never have to repeat the LASIK procedure, but eyes change after age 50, so you may need some fine tuning, or you may need to use reading glasses for up-close vision.
The best way to keep track of your vision changes is to visit us for regular eye appointments after your LASIK eye surgery. If Kutztown PA is not convenient for these checkups, we have several other Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania locations, including Montgomery, Lebanon and Schuylkill counties.
