What are the differences between standard and blade-free LASIK?

Blade Free vs. LASIK

Many surgeons are moving entirely to Intralase vision correction technology, citing increased safety, better visual acuity among patients, and patient preference.

It should be noted that blade-free vision correction surgery does not entirely remove the risk of flap complications. Study results suggest that for patients with mild or moderate nearsightedness, the Intralase surgery does not offer a great deal of measurable benefit, while for farsighted patients or those with thin or abnormal corneas, it may enable a much more precise correction and thus be worth the extra cost.

In addition, Intralase appears to offer a better experience to those having wavefront or custom LASIK.
