The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your corneal flap. With the IntraLase Method, tiny pulses of laser light, a quadrillionth of a second each, pass harmlessly through the outer portion of your cornea and form a uniform layer of microscopic bubbles just beneath the surface of your eye.
The exact dimensions of this layer of bubbles are determined by your doctor based on what's best for your eye, and are computer controlled for maximum precision - things that are not possible with a hand-held blade. The IntraLase flap creation process takes about 10 to 20 seconds.
During your LASIK treatment, Dr Bokosky separates the tissue where these bubbles occur and then gently folds it back, thus creating your corneal flap.
When your LASIK procedure is complete, the flap created using the IntraLase Method is uniquely able to "lock" back into place. Your eye then begins to rapidly heal.
The IntraLase Method delivers outstanding visual results: more patients achieve vision that is 20/20 or better when the IntraLase Method is used. Patients report better quality of vision overall, particularly in terms of their ability to see well in low light, such as at dusk or at night.
The IntraLase Method is proven and trusted, and is the most advanced Flap treatment available.
