The surface flap is usually made with an oscillating microscope blade, Hansatome®. In the "all laser LASIK" procedure named iLASIK®, a surface flap of corneal tissue is produced with the Intralase® femtosecond laser. Both procedures produce a precise incision in the cornea. Once the flap is created, the tissue is pulled back and the corneal surface beneath it is reshaped with the VISX S4® excimer laser. Once the flap is replaced and the eye has healed, our LASIK patients enjoy clear, youthful vision without glasses or contact lenses.
