Exceptional Vision Correction Technology at Every Step
When you have the iLASIK procedure, you’ll get a completely integrated, completely personalized procedure based on advanced vision correction technology at every step.
- Step 1 – Creating Your Personal Vision Profile
The first step in the iLASIK Procedure is to perform a series of test to determine the individual characteristics of your vision, including the use of our WaveScan technology. The WaveScan System creates a 3-D map of the unique imperfections of your eyes. Then our Advanced CustomVue treatment uses the digital information from that map to design a custom treatment for each of your eyes.
- Step 2 – Making the iLASIK Flap
The iLASIK procedure exclusively uses an advanced technology called the IntraLase Method. The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your LASIK flap, the thin flap of tissue that the doctor folds back in order to perform your iLASIK procedure. In a clinical survey of LASIK patients who had their LASIK flaps created using a blade in one eye and the IntraLase Method in the other, the vision in the IntraLase-treated eye was preferred 3-to-1 (among those who stated a preference).
- Step 3 – Your Laser Vision Correction
Now that you’ve had your personal vision profile using WaveScan technology and your blade-free LASIK flap using the exclusive IntraLase method, your vision can be corrected using the Advanced CustomVue treatment with the iLASIK procedure. The Advanced CustomVue procedure has earned FDA approval to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections possible, including mild-to-severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and all types of astigmatism. Clinical studies showed that one year after treatment:
- 100% of nearsighted patients and more than 95% of all clinical study patients could pass a driving test without glasses or contact lenses
- 98% of mild-to-moderate nearsighted patients and almost three-quarters of all clinical study patients could see 20/20 or better without glasses or contact lenses
- Four times as many mild-to-moderate nearsighted participants were very satisfied with their night vision after treatment compared to their night vision before treatment with glasses or contacts.
