Bladeless LASIK All Laser Eye Surgery in Texas is now within your reach. The IntraLase™ method is an all laser approach to creating the corneal flap, the first step in the LASIK procedure. IntraLase™ provides the most sophisticated and accurate technology for corneal flap creation available today for laser eye surgery Texas patients. It has been used successfully in over a million procedures and we trust this advanced technology to deliver exceptional results. Our commitment is to provide you with the ultimate in comfort, safety, and outstanding vision. LASIK with IntraLase™ can help you achieve this-while it delivers the added assurance of knowing you're being treated with the most advanced technology there is.
IntraLase™ technology delivers micron level accuracy, giving your surgeon more control during the procedure and the ability to tailor the size, shape and depth of the corneal flap for each individual patient and each individual eye.
Then the IntraLase™ laser creates your flap from below the surface of the cornea using ultra-fast pulses of laser light to position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth determined by your ophthalmologist. Once the base of the flap has been created, the IntraLase™ laser stacks bubbles around your corneal diameter to create the edges of the flap. These bubbles are stacked at an angle this is determined by your ophthalmologist and is individualized to the way your eye is shaped. The process takes only about 30 seconds from start to finish - It's quiet and comfortable. Your ophthalmologist then gently lifts the flap to allow for the second step of your LASIK treatment, the corneal reshaping. When the treatment is complete, the flap easily "locks" back into position and rapidly begins to heal.
The second step of the LASIK procedure is reshaping the corneal surface with an excimer laser. At The Eye Clinic of Texas laser eye surgery involves one of two platforms for treatment. Your ophthalmologist will choose the laser platform for each patient based upon their individual needs. One laser platform is the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q® Excimer Laser system. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q® Excimer Laser customizes every treatment to the patient's individual prescription and cornea while aiming to improve what nature originally designed. Wavefront Optimized™ treatment considers the unique curvature and biomechanics of the eye, preserving quality of vision and addressing the spherical distortions than can induce glare and night vision reduction.
PerfectPulse Technology™ ensures safe and precise work at high speed. Each ultra-thin laser pulse is used to sculpt the corneal surface of the eye with the utmost accuracy. The high-speed eye-tracker follows the eye's fastest movements, checking the eye's positions 400 times per second while ensuring an accurate placement of each laser pulse on the cornea. In addition, an integrated cross line projector provides the surgeon with an exact alignment of the eye's position, making the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q® Excimer Laser one of the safest, most effective optical lasers currently available. One of the most innovative features of the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q® Excimer Laser is the way it uses Wavefront-Optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea. At night and in dark conditions, the pupil becomes larger to permit the maximum amount of light to enter the eye. Laser eye correction needs to take this fact into account. If the optical zone is smaller than the size of the pupil at its largest, there is a chance that the patient will experience glare and halos around bright objects such as oncoming headlights. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q® Excimer Laser is able to produce a larger optical zone, virtually eliminating glare and night vision problems.
