  • Is IntraLase a Safer Alternative for Your Eyes?

    Choosing LASIK surgery for vision correction is not the same as it was 10 or 12 years ago. In 1994, when Baltimore ophthalmologist Anthony Kameen had LASIK surgery to correct nearsightedness and astigmatism, his options were not very extensive: a small mechanical blade, called a microkeratome, created a flap on his cornea, after which a conventional excimer laser was used to reshape the tissue underneath so that the cornea would be able to focus light directly on the retina, as it would in a normal eye. That was, in a nutshell, the only way LASIK was performed then. Now, of course, the technology is much more advanced including smoother and more precise lasers, allowing patients to achieve better vision than ever possible before. The newest technological addition to Dr. Kameen's refractive surgery office is a machine called IntraLase, which allows patients to avoid operation via a metal blade, using a special laser that is used only for the purpose of flap creation.

    Cataract surgery to restore vision has become one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the world. It has also been verified as safe and effective (some studies suggest at least 90% of the operations are successful in helping correct vision with minimal complications).  Thanks to femtosecond laser technology (used to improve surgical incisions in correcting pre-existing astigmatism), this type of surgery has become a more efficient method and is currently performed by medical professionals on a daily basis. For patients who choose the laser approach for correcting their vision, there is a greater assurance of accuracy and they ultimately see better results.
