The most qualified doctor to perform your LASIK surgery will be both board certified and fellowship trained.

Why Choose Bladeless Custom LASIK?

Drs. Altman, Primack, and Shah prefer the state-of-the-art Bladeless Custom LASIK technique, also called “all-laser” LASIK, which is the most technologically advanced and safest way of performing LASIK.

In conventional LASIK surgery, the surgeon uses a handheld surgical blade, called a microkeratome, to cut a thin, hinged flap into the surface of the cornea. The flap is then folded over and the surgeon applies energy pulses from a computer-guided excimer laser to reshape the cornea and improve vision imperfections. In Bladeless Custom LASIK, the curvature of the cornea is reshaped with cool laser beams instead of a surgical blade.

Bladeless Custom LASIK surgery may have advantages for patients with:

  • Very steep or very flat corneas
  • Thin corneas
  • Large refractive errors
  • Dry eyes or contact lens intolerance
  • Anxiety about “the blade”

It’s important to remember that both the microkeratome and the femtosecond laser are tools, and tools are only as good as the surgeon who is using them. Drs. Primack, Altman and Shah are highly selective in choosing patients for bladeless LASIK. Each performs an extensive screening process that includes personally examining and speaking with each candidate about their goals and expectations.
