The most advanced femtosecond laser used in LASIK eye surgery is the IntraLase Fs. Dr. Khanna uses the IntraLase FS laser to design a custom corneal flap for your LASIK procedure. This 4th-generation laser is safer, more precise, and more advanced than all previous versions – and since Dr. Khanna uses it, you know it is FDA-approved.
Femtosecond lasers use tiny rapid pulses of light to create a flap in your corneal tissue. The laser beam passes through the top layers of the cornea to a predetermined position and depth in the stromal layer of the cornea. It does not penetrate the cornea or enter inside of the eye.
The IntraLase laser is a unique type of femtosecond laser that moves back and forth across the cornea to create a uniform layer of bubbles at the safest depth. The bubbles are thus formed in one plane of the corneal tissue. The tissue is gently separated to form the corneal flap. The corneal flap is then folded back for the application of the VISX Laser, which corrects your vision. Your eyes will be kept numb during this painless procedure.
Computer-Controlled, Blade-Free LASIK
The entire LASIK procedure is controlled by your surgeon and the computers of the laser. No blade ever comes into contact with your eye. Using IntraLase, Dr. Khanna is able to customize the flap to what’s best for your eye. He can fashion a unique flap by controlling the diameter, depth and angle of edges of the flap.
This is an important advantage, since everyone’s eyes are shaped differently and the corneal thickness can vary from person to person. Customizing the flaps to your specific needs increase the safety and contributes to excellent post-operative outcomes. The corneal flap created with the IntraLase method also “locks” back into position after the LASIK procedure is performed. This is supposed to decrease the chances of flap slipping or other problems.
