Understanding i-Lasik iLASIK is an advancement of LASIK , which stands for – Laser In Situ Keratomileusis – is a surgical procedure to reduce nearsightedness ( myopia ), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism by reshaping tissue in the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye. iLASIK is the most advanced laser vision correction that combines the wavefront guided laser vision correction technology of Customvue with the safety and precision of the Intralase FS flap creation laser. iLASIK is an all-laser LASIK procedure, involving no blades and is fully customized, greatly reducing the risk for human error.

How does i-Lasik works ? The iLASIK procedure involves a combination of technologies that have proven to be the safest and most accurate method for laser vision correction. LASIK traditionally involves 2 main steps to reshape the cornea and improve vision: 1) creation of the corneal flap which is then folded back and 2) application of excimer laser pulses to reshape the middle surface of the cornea. iLASIK provides a safer and more accurate method to create the corneal flap. Using the Intralase femtosecond laser, a computer-guided infrared laser light is used to precisely create the corneal flap. Maintained by Visual Aids Centre Owner: Vipin Buckshey


Is i-Lasik safer than Lasik ? iLASIK improves the safety, precision and visual results of LASIK, whether you choose to have a standard or custom procedure This is a result of the superior precision provided by the computer-guided IntraLase laser, as compared to that of a hand-held microkeratome, which houses a metal blade that cuts across the cornea to create the flap. IntraLase uses the precision of a beam of light to create a laser flap without traveling across the cornea, virtually eliminating severe sight-threatening complications as a result.

Long term effects of i-Lasik The over 20 year follow-up of patients undergoing laser vision correction procedures (PRK and LASIK) is very stable In fact the behavior of an eye that has had LASIK or iLASIK parallels the behavior of a normal eye that has not had surgery. Based on performing eye surgery over time, we know that if an eye is “ stable ” in its vision at 2 years, then it should remain stable at 20 years and beyond. Though iLASIK is newer technology, it uses the same surgical principals as LASIK. Therefore the long-term behavior of eyes that have had LASIK and iLASIK is the same.
