An Introduction To IntraLase LASIK

BY ELLA G. FAKTOROVICH, M.D., & SCOTT F. LEE, O.D., San Francisco, Calif.

Excerpts:


"With IntraLase, the overall time each patient spends in the surgery center is increased, in some cases by at least 40 minutes. It takes 55 seconds per eye to create a corneal flap with the Intralase. The patient then waits about 15 to 30 minutes for the cavitation bubbles to clear before the excimer treatment is performed. "

"Some patients may experience discomfort during the IntraLase step because of the increased time the suction ring is applied to the eye (about 55 seconds compared to less than five seconds with a mechanical microkeratome)."

Femtosecond laser flap thickness highly predictable

A correlation was found between room temperature and corneal edema due to temperature-related changes in laser spot delivery.

By Michela Cimberle

Excerpt:

Treatment time is also important, Dr. Pajic said.

?We found that the best results are obtained when treatment time is under 82 seconds from the moment suction is started to the moment it is released,? he said.

Note: 82 seconds is a very long time to have a suction ring on your eye!!! The suction ring can damage delicate structures inside the eye such as the vitreous, retina, and optic nerve.

Quote:
Some disadvantages of using femtosecond lasers include the duration of elevated pressure, temperature sensitivity (air conditioning required), and high costs, he noted.
