The most important factors that patients look for when considering laser vision correction are the guarantee of safety and minimal risks during surgery. IntraLasik surgery is guaranteed to be the safest laser vision correction procedure as well as the most successful.
This surgical method of vision correction uses a laser instead of a scalpel or surgical blade to create the corneal flap. Today it is the most accurate and safe method of vision correction in modern science with minimal risk of about 0.2%. This method is also the priciest because its application requires the highest medical equipment technology. IntraLasik eye surgery can be applied to correct myopia up to -10 diopters, farsightedness up to +3 diopters, and astigmatism up to 3 diopters.
IntraLasik is at the highest level of technological development and is especially suitable for people with very thin corneas. The healing process is quick and painless. Anti-inflammatory drops and eye protection from sunlight or burning are given post surgery to prevent any discomfort.
IntraLasik was tested for the first time in 2001 and it is a great alternative to traditional Lasik and other laser eye correction surgeries. IntraLasik allows the surgeon to form a thin corneal flap by using a laser instead of a scalpel. Each light laser pulse passes through the superficial layers of the cornea, forming a microscopic section, taking into account individual parameters of the patient. IntraLasik eye correction surgery is the only way to correct vision for people with a very thin cornea.
Preparation for surgery
On the day of your laser procedure, you should avoid rubbing your eyes and using perfume. Make-up should also not be worn to avoid particles falling into your eyes. If you wear contact lenses, you should stop wearing them two weeks before your scheduled procedure. If the patient is anxious or nervous, Dr. Boothe of Boothe Eyecare can offer to give a sedative. It is necessary to be accompanied home by someone because you should not drive after the procedure.
This painless surgery is performed in the supine position with the hair under the medical scarf and feet in shoe covers. The area around the eye is completely sterilized by Dr. Boothe. Special anesthetic drops will be used to numb your eyes. A special ring will be placed on the eye that is used to prevent eye flicker. In order to make sure the operation is successful, Dr. Boothe of Boothe Eye Care uses a computerized tracking system. This allows the laser beam to track involuntary eye movement, or to stop the operation if necessary.
