Dr Khalil is committed to providing his patients with the newest and safest state-of-the-art technologies. It is to be stated that the regular microkeratome LASIK is still a very successful operation, because of the coninuous advances in its technology. The outcome difference between intralase LASIK and microkeratome LASIK is is not huge in most cases. Our high tech refractive surgery instrumentation, including the more accurate IntraLase laser in combination with the VISX S4 femtosecond laser ensures our patients that they will have the highest-quality laser vision correction available. The Pentacam scanner is always utilized as a diagnostic tool to help ensure a safe and precise surgical outcome.
This custom IntraLase™ method uses two different lasers to create a safer experience and a more precise result. Dr Khalil is among the first vision correction specialists to offer this modality of treatment. He is currently using its safer and newest iFS™ Advanced Femtosecond Laser. After full consultation, Dr Khalil will suggest to you whether IntraLASIK is right for you!
The first step of the two-part all-laser IntraLASIK process is to create a button-sized corneal flap on the surface of the eye. In classic LASIK, this step is done by another precision system called the microkeratome. In Intra-LASIK, the laser allows light to focus on a small central point beneath the corneal surface to create the flap from the inside out. where thousands of microscopic bubbles are formed. The iFS IntraLase™ laser greatly improves the precision and accuracy of flap creation, and eliminates most of the serious complications and risk of dry eye experienced with the microkeratome blade used in classical LASIK.
CustomVue system combines the technologies of the WaveFront and STAR S4 Excimer Laser systems for high-definition, high-accuracy LASIK vision correction. CustomVue makes it possible to perform customized refractive surgeries using information gathered from your own eyes. This allows the laser treatment software to correct the very specific refractive errors that obscure your vision for you to enjoy the best post-operative vision quality possible. Other benefits of the CustomVue process include faster treatment time and no need to dilate the pupils.
