Hi, it’s Matt Russell from VSON Laser Vision Specialists. If you’re thinking about LASIK, I explain the advantages of a blade-free, no-touch LASIK procedure in this blog post.
Want a touch-free procedure? We offer the only all-laser LASIK in all of Brisbane.
LASIK is a safe and effective procedure for vision correction that remains popular. In fact, most of the LASIK performed in Brisbane today is microkeratome LASIK. However, some people are put off by the thought of a mechanical blade – no matter how precisely controlled – creating a flap in the cornea.
To overcome these drawbacks, laser scientists found a way to use a femtosecond, an ultra-fast laser to make the flap, instead of a computer-controlled mechanical instrument. This laser is called a FemtoLASIK laser. It is minimally invasive, precise, and gentle – and we use it here at VSON.
The key benefits of this method include:
- Maximum safety through intelligent eye-tracking
- Shorter healing process
- More standardised corneal flap thickness
- Decreased risk of corneal abrasions during the procedure
- Decreased risk of astigmatism after the surgery
- Fantastic clinical results
