Best LASIK Surgery By William Goldstein on November 17, 2014

Best LASIK Surgery, Blade or Bladeless 

If you’re looking to get corrective eye surgery, to decrease or eliminate your need for glasses and contact lenses, then LASIK surgery is the most innovative and state of the art approach to achieving 20/20 vision again.

Residents located in the areas of Michigan, Detroit, Macomb, Shelby Township, Troy, Rochester and Warren, will be glad to learn of the many benefits and incredible improvements a simple and quick LASIK surgery makes possible. The two categories of LASIK, bladed or bladeless technique are both great options for correction.

Advantages to bladeless LASIK surgery

An improvement by leaps and bounds from traditional blade to the use of a high energy incredibly precise laser instead, bladeless LASIK surgery may end up being the best LASIK surgery over the traditional approach for many patients.

IntraLase or bladeless LASIK is the safest and incredibly improved technological approach to corrective vision surgery. With fewer risks of forming complications during the intricate surgical process, your skilled and experienced LASIK surgeon can fix your vision with the use of a precisely engineered, advanced tool. IntraLace LASIK ensures precise and exact corrective measures are taken on one of the most sensitive and delicate organs in the body.

By directing the laser machine through complex computer technology, your surgeon creates an infinitesimally small flap in the cornea with the help of a high speed laser, after which a standard laser then makes required adjustments. The ‘all-laser LASIK’ is a much more precise way to create the flap, and is especially safe for patients with thinner corneas. So bladeless LASIK surgery can be performed on those with thin corneas as well, as it allows precise and accurate incisions to be made via the laser.

Bladeless trumps traditional LASIK

While traditional LASIK uses a blade and is a faster procedure, it doesn’t come with the the precision an all laser or bladeless procedure brings. Inconsistencies in the blade or other minor infractions in material used during a blade or microkeratome procedure may cause operative complications that require further surgery to correct.

The infrared laser used during bladeless LASIK surgery results in fewer complications. A beautifully precise and immensely exact means to create right depth and predetermined size of cut are real benefits to this technique. Operating at extreme speed, the laser specifically targets effected tissue at a molecular level without having any residual impact on surrounding tissue.

Be it blade or bladeless technique, LASIK is currently considered one of the safest procedures conducted in modern medicine. Even though bladeless LASIK surgery seems to have fewer complications, issues that arise from blade procedures are a miniscule number and rank in less than 1 percent cases.
