LASIK / Intralase

In the LASIK and Custom LVC procedures, a flap of corneal tissue must be created and then folded back. The cornea is the transparent dome-like structure that covers the iris and pupil of your eye. In interlase, a laser is used to create the corneal flap rather than a mechanical device. The advance allows the surgeon to make thinner, more consistent flaps, therefore customizing the corneal flap for each patient.
