The IntraLase ultrafast femtosecond laser is the first bladeless laser technology which replaces the microkeratomes that are currently used to create the corneal flap when LASIK is performed.

The INTRALASE® laser actually represents a breakthrough in the field of ultrafast laser science. Femtosecond laser technology generates light pulses as short as one-quadrillionth of a second at a time.

IntraLase creates the flap from below the surface of the cornea, using an "inside-out" process. The silent beam of laser light is focused to a precise point where each pulse of the laser creates a tiny 2- to 3-micron bubble of carbon dioxide and water vapor. Thousands of these microscopic bubbles are precisely positioned to define the flap's dimensions. The process from start to finish takes approximately 45 seconds.

With IntraLase, your doctor can create a corneal flap of exact diameter, depth, hinge location, centration, and overall architecture
