Intralase All Laser LASIK
Dr. Sanford Feldman , at One to One LASIK in San Diego , is proud to be among the first LASIK surgeons in San Diego to offer " all laser " or " bladeless " LASIK featuring Intralase technology. LASIK involves three basic steps. The first is to create a paper-thin flap of tissue on the front surface of the eye, or cornea. The second is to reshape the underlying layers of the cornea using laser light. Finally, the flap is then laid back down where it seals itself into place within minutes, without stitches. It's as if the cover of a book was being opened, some pages were being removed, and the cover was then being laid back down.

Traditionally, the LASIK flap has been created with tremendous precision using an automated device called a "microkeratome" which uses a tiny, microscopically polished, oscillating surgical blade. Now, one of the latest advances in LASIK technology called Intralase, all laser LASIK or "bladeless LASIK" , allows Dr. Feldman to create the LASIK flap using only laser light, and no surgical blade at all.
Intralase all laser LASIK technology is ideal for patients who want the least invasive technology available for LASIK . Because Intralase all laser LASIK allows Dr. Feldman to make thinner flaps, it may be well suited to patients whose corneas are determined to be too thin for the conventional microkeratome approach. Early research studies suggest that the precise, smooth flaps created by Intralase all laser LASIK may help patients to achieve better vision as well. During your free consultation at One to One LASIK , Dr. Feldman can determine whether Intralase all laser LASIK technology would be appropriate to consider for your particular vision needs. Please call One to One LASIK in San Diego at 858 273-0200 to schedule your free hour-long consultation with Dr. Sanford Feldman .
With Intralase all laser LASIK technology, the surgical blade is replaced by a special laser, called a " femtosecond laser ." The femtosecond laser painlessly delivers a highly focused beam of laser light to the cornea at a very precise depth. A layer of harmless gas bubbles forms at that depth. As they form, these microscopic gas bubbles gently separate the tissues just above them from those just below. This plane of separation forms the LASIK flap, which can then be lifted without any "cutting" at all.
Intralase (all laser) LASIK uses laser light instead of a surgical blade to create the LASIK "flap." Laser light is precisely focussed at the desired level below the surface of the cornea (the clear front window of the eye).

The laser causes a microscopic gas bubble to form at that level which separates the tissues just above and just below. By laying down a full layer of these bubbles, a separation is made within the substance of the cornea without cutting the tissue. The tissue layers above this plane of separation form the LASIK "flap" which is then lifted. Beneath the flap, a second type of laser re-shapes the cornea to change its focussing power.
