While Intralase isn't right for everyone, the blade-free lasik vision correction surgery can produce real benefits for some patients. They include:
-- Decreased risk of flap complications.
-- Decreased incidence of postoperative dry eye
-- Unlike other alternatives to LASIK, it preserves many of the benefits of LASIK including a short and largely pain-free recovery.
-- More accurate outcomes in terms of patients' postoperative vision.
-- Benefits of vision correction surgery are available to those who might have previously been poor candidates.
-- Less pressure on the eye during the surgery.
-- Reduced incidence of patients needing a second operation to correct their vision.
-- Flaps created with a laser are less likely to become dislodged later.
