At South East Eye, we’re dedicated to bringing you the most advanced and trusted LASIK technology. Our surgeons use IntraLase which offers a 100% blade-free approach using a computer-guided laser. This allows us to customize every LASIK procedure to fit the needs of each individual’s unique set of eyes.
During the LASIK procedure, two different lasers are used: the highly sophisticated IntraLase technology, which includes tiny, rapid pulses of cool laser light, to help prepare the eye for the other laser procedure, laser vision correction (LASIK).
As the laser moves back and forth across your eye, a uniform layer of tiny microscopic bubbles form just below the corneal surface at a specific depth and position determined by the surgeon. The corneal flap is created by gently separating the tissue where these bubbles have formed. The flap is folded back so the surgeon can correct your vision by reshaping the cornea using an excimer laser. Once the procedure is completed, the corneal flap is positioned back in place.
More than 5,000,000 procedures have been performed comfortably and effectively using this technology with more patients achieving 20/20 vision or better when compared to conventional LASIK techniques.
