  • 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.
