iLasik vs. Lasik Surgery

5/9/2017

If you’ve been wanting to get rid of your glasses, you might be considering Lasik surgery. There are two different types of Lasik procedures, one of them is performed using a blade and the other one is bladeless.

Traditional Lasik eye surgery uses a special instrument or blade called microkeratome. This instrument is used to cut the cornea and create a flap. Once the flap is created the surgeon can use a laser to help correct your vision. 

The newest type of Lasik eye surgery is called iLasik or IntraLase. This is a bladeless procedure where the Lasik surgeon uses two different types of laser. The first laser used is called a femtosecond, the second laser is caller the excimer laser. The first laser used in the iLasik surgery helps create a flap in the cornea and the second laser helps reshape the tissue in the cornea.
