Intralase “Bladeless” Lasik Gains Popularity in the Raleigh, NC Area

Raleigh, NC (Vocus) June 22, 2009 -- Intralase “Bladeless” Lasik gains popularity in the Raleigh, NC area. Dr. Dean Dornic has performed nearly 900 Intralase “Bladeless” LASIK procedures in the last year. Dr. Dornic of the Laser Eye Center of Carolina has logged nearly 900 Intralase LASIK procedures. The bladeless technology is a relatively recent development in LASIK technology, but has become very popular over the last few years. As LASIK procedures evolve over the years, it is critical for patients to understand their options when considering treatment. Dr. Dean Dornic of the Laser Eye Center of Carolina is at the forefront of advances in LASIK technology and has years of experience in both advising patients and performing surgeries.

A Short History of LASIK: | The LASIK procedure is based on a technology -- originally termed ALK or automated Lamellar Keratoplasty -- that has evolved over the past 50 years. Essentially, LASIK involves using a laser to reshape the cornea. The cornea functions as a lens and changing the shape of the cornea changes the power of the lens. Changes to the lens makes allows a patient to see more clearly, depending on the nature of their his or her eye condition.

It’s no secret that many LASIK patients enjoy a quick recovery time. This quick vision recovery that LASIK patients enjoy is a result of the accelerated healing that occurs by creating a flap which may reduce the risk of certain side effects. Advances that have been incorporated over the years include new devices to make the flap and refinements of the lasers that reshape the cornea.

Thin Flap LASIK: A New Innovation | An exciting new advance in LASIK technology is Sub-Bowmen's Keratomileusis or SBK. Some doctors refer to this as Thin Flap LASIK. The advantage of SBK is that the procedure is less invasive than conventional LASIK. For the patient this means that the cornea is stronger and more structurally sound. This may result in greater safety and less risk of certain side effects such as dry eye.

Of course, thinner flaps require greater precision. This is best accomplished in a blade-free procedure termed IntraLase. Patients who choose to have Sub-Bowman's Keratomileusis will actually go under two different lasers: the IntraLase laser to make the flap and an excimer laser that will reshape the underlying surface to correct vision.

The use of the IntraLase laser is crucial to the success of thin flap LASIK. The IntraLase laser creates a flap by generating a layer of tightly spaced bubbles under the surface of the cornea. The use of the laser to make a flap is the safest and most predictable way to perform thin flap LASIK. After studying the benefits of LASIK performed with a laser flap, NASA has approved IntraLase LASIK with wavefront-guided correction for astronauts.
