The bladeless LASIK combines all of the latest technology into one LASIK procedure. The bladeless LASIK in Cleveland procedure utilizes the VISX Wavescan™ System to create a personal vision profile, a digital 3-D custom map of your eye, the Intralase laser to create the corneal flap and the VISX STAR S4™ to reshape the cornea.
The first step in the bladeless LASIK procedure is to perform a series of tests to determine the individual characteristics of your vision using Advanced CustomVue® Wavescan technology. The Wavescan system creates a 3-D map of the unique imperfections of your eyes. This technology provides 25 times more precise measurement than with standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. This map is used to drive the laser that corrects your vision.
The bladeless LASIK procedure exclusively uses the Intralase Method.
A 100% blade free approach to creating your corneal flap – the thin flap of tissue that the doctor folds back in order to perform your LASIK procedure. The Intralase laser creates an extremely precise flap by producing tiny bubbles inside the cornea (clear front surface of the eye) The Intralase Method can only be performed using the FDA-approved Intralase laser.
Now that the corneal flap has been created, your vision can be corrected using the Advanced CustomVue treatment utilizing the VISX Star S4™ excimer laser. The VISX STAR S4™ laser system is FDA approved to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections, including mild to severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
If you feel as though you meet the general Cleveland LASIK requirements to be a candidate for laser vision correction you should schedule an evaluation to determine if you are truly a strong candidate for a bladeless LASIK procedure. Each set of eyes is unique in that no two eyes appear to be the same. The best way to determine your candidacy 100% is to have an evaluation with a board certified ophthalmologist.
