INTRA LASIK (LASIK LASER EYE SURGERY)

What is LASIK surgery?

Intra LASIK, full laser lasik or also called Femto LASIK is a laser eye surgery during which the protective corneal flap is created with femtosecond laser (femtolasik) and the excimer laser works on the basis of dioptric expression of the disorder. It is still the preferred method for many optical centres and laser eye clinics worldwide.

Why is it called bladeless LASIK?

During conventional LASIK-type surgery, the protective layer in the form of cornea lamella is surgically created by means of mechanical microkeratome with a sharp oscilating blade. Although the surgery is extremely safe and reliable, the idea of a vibrating blade working on their eye is not acceptable for a number of patients.

Compared to that, during Intra LASIK surgery the protective layer is created with delicate and precise laser, without using any sharp or cutting instruments. This so-called femtosecond laser can create the flap in a safe, precise and painless manner. VisuMax femtosecond laser by Zeiss. Femtosecond laser is used by NASA to heal its cosmonauts and by the US Army and US Navy to heal the members of combat units as well as pilots. In the case of the LASIK method, the dioptric expression of the disorder is determined on the basis of autorefractometer measurements and on the basis of the subsequent method of subjective refraction by means of examination glasses and optotypes.

How does it work?

The LASIK surgery is painless and quick. It usually only takes 10-15 minutes. The recovery process is very fast and the eye is stabilised withing few days.
