Laser Vision Correction :Step 3 


Once the corneal flap is created ,the cornea is treated to correct the refractive error with an excimer laser .This laser has earned FDA approval to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections possible ,including mild -to -severe nearsightedness , farsightedness and all types of astigmatism .

In a clinical study conducted one year later on blade free LASIK patients :

100 percent of nearsightedness patients and more than 95 percent of all patients could pass a driving test without glasses .


(1)In a standard LASIK procedure ,a microkeratome makes a single , one dimensional cut across the cornea .As it cuts , the blade oscillates back and forth ,which can leave an irregular surface after the flap is lifted .

In contrast to it ,femtosecond laser used in blade free LASIK gives a precise corneal flap .In a clinical study ,patients who got corneal flap created with microkeratome in one eye and femtosecond laser in another ,experienced better vision in the latter .

(2) Safer than standard LASIK 

The precise and perfect corneal flap avoids a majority of sight -threatening and non -sight threatening complications possible with traditional LASIK .

(3) Treats patients with high refractive errors and thin cornea too.

A thinner and more accurate cornea flap follows patients with  thinner corneas or those with higher corrections qualify as a candidate for laser vision correction with blade free LASIK.

Who is a candiadte ?

The fact is that majority of people who meet the age and general health requirements are good candidates for blade free LASIK procedure.

(1) You should be 18 years old .

(2) You should be in good general health .

(3 )You should have a stable vision prescription for at least six months .

(4) You should have no existing eye disease.

(5) You should not be pregnant or nursing.

(6) You should have cornea of adequate thickness.

Schedule your blade free LASIK procedure and get rid of your glasses.
