About Bladeless Custom LASIK

Drs. Altman, Primack and Shah prefer Bladeless Custom LASIK, also called “all-laser” LASIK, because they consider it to be the most technologically advanced and safest way of performing LASIK. Bladeless LASIK is also the only type of LASIK approved for NASA astronauts and U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy sailors and pilots.

Bladeless Custom LASIK offers several important advantages compared to the older, conventional LASIK technique which uses a metal surgical blade:

  • It reduces the risks associated with passing a metal blade through the surface of the eye;
  • The precise flap is thinner and allows for greater corneal stability and higher levels of correction;
  • It allows both eyes to be treated in the same surgery session, one right after the other.

Bladeless Custom LASIK is the most modern technology for safe, accurate and customized vision correction. It promotes greater corneal stability and allows treatment of higher levels of correction than other methods.

Most patients are surprised to find that LASIK eye surgery is quick and painless. Your eyes are numbed with anesthetic eye drops, and you will not feel any discomfort. Some people feel a little pressure during the 15 to 30-minute surgery, but there is never any pain. After surgery, any minor irritation you may feel can be alleviated with artificial tears and a good night’s sleep.

Next Steps

Not every individual is a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Every eye is unique, and corneas are just as distinctive as fingerprints or DNA. Once you decide to proceed with surgery, you will undergo a comprehensive evaluation of your eyes to test for corneal thickness, pupil size, refractive error, astigmatism, etc., and the surgeon will make a final determination about your candidacy for LASIK surgery.

If Dr. Altman, Primack or Shah determines you are not an optimal candidate for LASIK, they will discuss alternatives with you, such as the PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) technique.

If you live or work in Wyomissing, PA, schedule a free consultation with the LASIK specialists at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania to discuss treatment. If LASIK surgery is not the best solution, other options may help you regain clear vision.
