iLASIK Surgery
With iDESIGN® Refractive Studio

“LASIK” is an acronym for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis. A procedure that is safe and highly effective, with few side effects. Over 32,000,000 LASIK surgeries have been performed throughout the world, making it the most popular procedure available for vision correction. LASIK allows most patients to become glasses independent. For others, it can reduce the dependence on glasses or contact lenses, allowing a more active lifestyle. LASIK takes only a few minutes During this time, a laser reshapes the cornea to correct the imperfections responsible for “near-sighted” or “far-sighted”, vision.

iLASIK - IntraLase™ FS laser

iLASIK is a brand name that describes LASIK using an IntraLase™ FS laser. The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free technique...

StarS4LaserThe first step in the LASIK procedure is creating the corneal flap. There are two ways to make this flap, a blade or a laser. With Dr. Sayegh flaps are created exclusively using the IntraLase™ FS laser. In research studies, patients prefer bladeless iLASIK over traditional LASIK. There are substantial benefits. The laser provides our surgeons with better control of the depth and architecture of the flap. The cut is also smoother, which results in faster healing.

In the second step of the iLASIK procedure, an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision. iLASIK correction is guided by a computer. This computer is programmed with the iDESIGN® Refractive Studio. This blueprint will guide your laser correction, making it a truly customized procedure. VISX technology is the most popular excimer laser technology in the world. It has an excellent safety and results track record.
