IntraLase™ FS Laser
The Eye Clinic of Racine offers Wisconsin’s most advanced technology
The IntraLase™ FS Laser brings a new level of safety and assurance to vision correction surgery in Racine and Kenosha by providing an all-laser approach for optimal precision. Now, the accuracy of a computer-controlled laser may be used to create the corneal flap for LASIK, providing unprecedented control and the ability to customize the flap for each of our patients.
Traditionally, the creation of a corneal flap was performed with a mechanical, hand-held device (known as a microkeratome) which moved across the cornea to cut the flap.
The IntraLase FS laser is a safe, computer-controlled alternative to a mechanical microkeratome for creating corneal flaps in the LASIK procedure. Using the IntraLase FS Laser takes LASIK safety to the next level by significantly reducing the chance of rare complications.
To make the corneal flap, the laser beam is focused into a tiny spot of energy that passes harmlessly through the outer layers of the cornea until reaching its exact focal point within the central layer of the cornea. There the corneal flap procedure is initiated, silently and painlessly, with remarkable precision.
Why The Eye Clinic of Racine uses the IntraLase™ FS Laser:
- IntraLASIK provides our patients with an extra margin of safety.
- IntraLASIK allows us to perform LASIK on patients with thin corneas because we can make a precise, more shallow flap, which allows us to correct higher levels of refractive error.
- IntraLASIK makes laser vision correction an all laser procedure, which significantly adds to its precision and predictability.
- IntraLASIK also creates better fitting flaps. Once put back in place, these flaps form a tight seal, making flap dislocation after the procedure more difficult.
