A new and improved method of LASIK has come to Muskegon and the Tri-Cities. Blade-free LASIK, IntraLase, is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your corneal flap, the thin flap of tissue that the surgeon folds back in order to perform a LASIK procedure. Shoreline Vision is proud to be the first, and at this time the only, LASIK Center in Muskegon and Tri-Cities to perform blade-free Laser Vision Correction.
In addition, if you were not eligible for LASIK surgery performed with a microkeratome due to steep, flat, or thin corneas, you may now be a candidate with the IntraLase Method. In fact, IntraLase training has become part of the curriculum at most of the ophthalmic teaching institutions and is rapidly being adopted by eye care practices around the world.
Blade-free LASIK is one of the most trusted laser procedures available. The LASIK surgeon uses a computer guided laser during the first step to create a micro-thin corneal flap. The laser moves back and forth across your eye, a uniform layer of tiny microscopic bubbles forms just below the corneal surface. The flap is created as the surgeon gently seperates the tissue where the bubbles have formed. The corneal flap is then lifted to expose the inner cornea for the next step, performing the laser procedure that will correct your vision. Finally, when the procedure is completed, the flap is positioned in place and the healing begins.
Custom LASIK uses waverfront technology to generate a 3-D map of your cornea for the surgeon to evaluate. The wavefront analyzer used makes the prodecure as much as 25 times more precise than conventional LASIK. Treating a patient with the information taken from the wavefront analyzer can result in greater clarity of vision and fewer complaints of glare and night halos.
Shoreline Vision is the most experienced eye care practice in and around the Lakeshore utilizing the latest technology available. The Surgery Center at Shoreline Vision has become the area’s premier facility for eye surgery since its doors opened in May 2006.
We’re proud to offer Blade-Free LASIK as part of our ongoing commitment to patients who want the latest advances, the best vision, and the highest quality of life.
