IntraLase-initiated LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) uses the IntraLase FS laser to complete the first step of the LASIK procedure. It is the first advancement to make LASIK an all-laser procedure.

While traditional LASIK is a successful and relatively safe procedure, the IntraLase laser makes it safer by virtually eliminating the possible complications of the microkeratome. IntraLase-initiated LASIK is not only 100 times more accurate, but it also provides patients with superior visual outcomes. These facts are giving thousands of patients each month the confidence to proceed with laser vision correction.

Clinical studies confirmed that patients achieve better vision with IntraLase. IntraLase creates few high and low order aberrations, associated with night glare and halos. The precision of the IntraLase flap significantly reduces the incidence of post-operative concerns induced astigmatism as compare to a microkeratome-created flap.

On rare occasions, some patients have reported transient light sensitivity (photophobia) following IntraLase-initiated LASIK due to a temporary inflammatory response. These side effects, while a nuisance, do not affect visual acuity and resolve with steroid eye drops.

Most patients agree that the added level of safety and better vision offered by IntraLase is worth the incremental cost. IntraLase surgeons are leaders in the field of ophthalmology who continually evaluate advances in technology. They’ve determined that the IntraLase is the most sophisticated and accurate system available today for flap creation and have invested in the technology to sustain their superiority in patient care.

Since today’s technology offers more options, some patients are still confused about the different types of procedures and what is best for them. At Pan Pacific Laser, our educational consultants, and our surgeon Dr. Stephen Gee can explain to you the different types of procedures that are available today and determine what is best for you by utilizing Dr. Gee’s experience of over 13,500 laser vision correction procedures in Hawaii.
