What is LASIK?

The most popular form of laser vision correction, LASIK has been performed on millions worldwide. LASIK surgery corrects myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. In order to correct these vision problems, the surface of the cornea must be reshaped. That’s where LASIK comes in. During LASIK surgery, your surgeon will use a femtosecond laser to create a circular “flap” on the surface of the cornea. Once created, the flap can be pulled back to expose the inner layers of the cornea for treatment. To reshape the eye, an excimer laser is used to systematically remove microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea. Once the proper adjustments have been made, the corneal flap is repositioned. No stitches are required after LASIK surgery!

Free yourself from the hassle of eyeglasses and contact lenses, we want to help to enhance your vision and enter the clear world of LASIK with informed and exciting simplicity. Now, with this more sophisticated form of surgery allows a customized correction to each patient’s specific “optical landscape.” The IntraLase Method™ for making the LASIK flap, used in conjunction with VISX CustomVue™ corneal correction, is the greatest combination of LASIK technologies available anywhere in the world. Dr. Cheema and his highly experienced team of eye specialists perform this form of blade-free custom LASIK exclusively, making them true experts in the procedure.

The IntraLase Method™

Instead of relying on a blade to cut the corneal flap during LASIK, the IntraLase Method™, also called Femtosecond LASIK, employs a high-precision laser to create the flap. By applying concentrated light energy to an exact depth within the cornea, Dr. Cheema creates a layer of gas bubbles that makes a very smooth and uniform flap. Then carefully folds back the flap to reshape the cornea with a second laser.

The IntraLase Method™ avoids the irregularities that sometimes occur when cutting the corneal flap with a blade. A smoother, more regular flap means quicker, stronger healing and clearer vision.
