Bladeless Lasik involves the use of two lasers – first is the Femtosecond Laser, which is used to create an ultra-thin flap in the cornea, second is Excimer Laser which is used to reshape the cornea to induce correction. The flap is then positioned back which sticks to its place immediately. No blades are used at any time in the whole procedure.
Advantages of Bladeless Lasik :
- No fear of blades working on an eye.
- Precise cutting resulting in better visual outcomes and faster recovery.
- Ultra-thin and better quality flap – Safer than Blade Lasik
- More customized treatment for patients
- Tissue Saving
- Faster Recovery
