Have you been thinking of laser vision correction? Shed your doubts, concerns, SPECTACLES and CONTACT LENSES, because blade-free LASIK has arrived. With this technology, laser vision correction procedure has become blade-free and safer than traditional LASIK.In any LASIK procedure, the first step is to create a corneal flap.
In standard LASIK the surgeon uses a hand-held oscillating blade called microkeratome to cut the corneal flap. The flap is then folded and the Excimer laser treats the cornea to correct the refractive error. In blade-free LASIK, femtosecond laser has replaced the steel blade for the creation of the corneal flap which improves visual outcome and post-operative comfort for the patient.
