What is Blade-Free LASIK?
LASIK surgery techniques require creating a flap of tissue that is lifted away from the eye to gain better access to the cornea, which is reshaped by the laser. This flap is then replaced and heals naturally without stitches over the course of a few months.
In some circumstances, this flap is created physically with an extremely small blade. However, at Boston LASIK, we have the capability of creating this flap with laser energy, thanks to our WaveLight bladeless LASIK laser.
Using the WaveLight FS200 laser system, our doctors create an ultra-thin corneal flap in just a few seconds. This device, called a femtosecond laser, checks the position of the eye hundreds of times per second as it sends laser energy to selectively penetrate the cornea to create the flap, ensuring complete accuracy and control.
Meet Our Doctors
Over 9,000 procedures have been performed at Boston Lasik so far. Many celebrities have chosen Boston Lasik for their care including Baseball greats Jim Rice and Dom Dimaggio. Our surgeons have written four textbooks on Laser Vision Correction techniques and have designed several surgical instruments used in the procedures.
Benefits of Bladeless LASIK
We invested in the WaveLight LASIK laser to ensure the results our patients get from laser vision correction are consistently excellent and as personalized as they need to be. You see, your eyes are as unique as any part of your body, meaning no two LASIK procedures are the same. These laser devices allow our doctors to even more finely tune the process from the beginning, giving you the best chance at achieving perfect 20/20 vision.
In addition, blade-free LASIK is faster, more precise, and more comfortable than physical techniques of creating the corneal flap.
