Advanced LASIK Technology
Boling Vision Center is the first and only practice in the Michiana area to permanently own and maintain our LASIK technology for optimized performance and patient safety. In our custom-built refractive suite we offer:
- IntraLase® femtosecond technology
- WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q excimer laser technology
For the first step in the procedure – the corneal flap creation – we use IntraLase technology for bladeless LASIK. IntraLase technology is a customizable method to program the dimensions of your unique flap based on what’s best for your eye. The IntraLase laser creates your flap from below the surface of the cornea – without ever cutting it – in just 35 seconds. The process uses extremely fast pulses of light to position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth so the flap can be lifted for the next step.
Benefits of Bladeless LASIK
- Individuals who were previously dismissed as non-candidates due to thin corneas may be candidates
- The risk of dry eye symptoms may be reduced
Corneal Reshaping with the Excimer Laser
The actual corneal reshaping is done with the WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q excimer laser. This advanced laser provides ‘Wavefront Optimized’ treatments: this means that every treatment is customized to your individual refraction and corneal curvature, generally resulting in less sensitivity to glare at night. Boling Vision Center is the first and only practice to bring the WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q LASIK technology to Michiana.
