You are admitted to the Laser room. There are 2 systems for the laser, one of the Femto laser or IFS Intralase. Dr Ahmad Khalil will be sitting in between the 2 laser systems, ready for the start of your operation. You will be asked to sit then lie on the mobile bed between them. Anesthetic eye drops are instilled into your eyes. The bed is rotated to the IFS Femto laser system...
Dr Khalil will gentle apply a lid opener to your eye to help you not to close your eye involuntarily. He then will apply a gentle suction pressure to steady the eye. A contact plate is then applied, through which the Femto laser emits thousand of shots, creating micro air bubbles in the exact plane decided by Dr Khalil
The bed is rotated to the Excimer Laser unit. The flap thus created is elevated easily by Dr Khalil, the laser microscope very accurately focused manually first. The tracking system starts its process of defining the various parts that it sees of your eye, and recrds it in its memory for accurate tracking.
The excimer laser then starts the actual treatment of your vision problem, myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism. Do not worry if your eyes move involuntarily, the laser tracking system is so fast, and able to follow its minutest movements accurately.
the superficial part of the cornea, elevated for applying treatment underneath, is then gently repositioned by Dr Khalil. He takes his tiime for meticulous repositioning.This is very much helped by the revolutionary flap making mechanism of hte Intralase system
The eye now is in its normal shape. the recovery and healing is faster with Intra-LASIk as compared to classical lasik. Intralasik is associated usually wih more redness of the eyes due to its slightly longer time of applying suctioon (30-60 seconds)
The IntraLASIK definitely uses more advanced technology. Depending on individual variations, its benifits can be crucial in some cases, and marginal in otherrs. Generally speakiing IntraLASIK is:
"I want to thank you for being God's hand in giving me back my sight, such a bless that is worth a fortune. I can’t find words to express my gratitude and gratefulness. The procedure was a piece of cake, it was a painless journey that I feared so much until I was only comforted by your confident and calm voice explaining every step and making it so much easier"
