iFS Laser Technology at North Shore Eye Care Helping to Set New Standard in LASIK Safety

Smithtown, New York (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

The leading LASIK surgeons of North Shore Eye Care are pleased to offer patients the iFS™ Femtosecond laser system, a technological breakthrough in performing LASIK that is endorsed and approved by both NASA and the U.S. military, according to Jeffrey Martin, MD, medical director of North Shore Eye Care.

“Our new iFS IntraLase Femtosecond Laser is used for creating a corneal flap prior during conventional and CustomVue LASIK,” said Dr. Martin. “This truly does set a new standard in patient safety and surgical outcomes here at North Shore Eye Care.”

The new iFS™ technology allows the surgeons of North Shore Eye Care to create fully customized, biomechanically engineered corneal flaps that are stronger and preserve the structural integrity of the cornea. This enables iFS LASIK patients to heal more rapidly, enjoy improved outcomes and reduce the risk of post-LASIK complications.

“The iFS laser system now gives us unprecedented accuracy and control in making customized corneal flaps,” said Dr. Martin. “This is a significant advancement in LASIK technology that not only improves the structural integrity, but it’s also allowing our LASIK patients to enjoy a quicker visual recovery,” he said.

The IFS Laser™ is a completely bladeless, highly evolved safe technology that uses only light energy to create the corneal flap, which is the critical first-step. This allows North Shore Eye Care surgeons to perform the actual LASIK procedure and correct distance-vision problems and astigmatism. The IFS Laser™ can create a corneal flap within 10 seconds or less, dramatically reducing the overall time it takes to perform LASIK. Improved treatment times means quicker healing and faster visual recovery. It also means less stress on patients and reduced fear and anxiety.

Until the introduction of the IntraLase® Method, LASIK was not an all-laser procedure, and the risks associated with the use of a hand-held blade (or mechanical microkeratome) have kept many patients from considering LASIK. With the improved safety and outcomes of the IntraLase® Method, numerous patients previously fearful of laser vision correction are now choosing to have ‘blade-free’ LASIK.

This year they are celebrating 50 years of eye care excellence since Dr. Sidney Martin founded the practice in 1962.
