In early LASIK procedures a tiny metal blade - or microkeratome - was used to cut the corneal flap. Nowadays, the more advanced clinics use a special laser to carry out this first part of the surgery.
Maintaining the integrity of the corneal biomechanics is a critical element in the success of the refractive procedure. The IntraLase FS Laser System gives your surgeon unmatched control over flap diameter, depth, centration and morphology.
