LASIK (Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) – the most commonly performed laser eye surgery procedure throughout the world.
At Fendalton Eye Clinic, Dr Kent uses the combined technology of a Zeiss VisuMax® femtosecond laser to create a micro thin flap on the front surface (cornea) of the eye followed by the precision of the Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser to sculpt the inner layers of the cornea to achieve the desired refocusing.
We are committed to the safety and precision of your laser eye surgery treatment. NASA will only allow their fighter pilots and astronauts to have a LASIK procedure that is carried out with a femtosecond laser creating the corneal flap. You deserve this level of accuracy too.
There are two steps to the LASIK procedure.
First a micro thin flap is created in the cornea (front clear window of the eye). At Fendalton Eye Clinic Dr Kent uses the Zeiss VisuMax® (a femtosecond laser) to create a precision LASIK flap.
Dr Kent, uses the precision of a laser to “create” rather than “cut” the corneal flap, as a result provides added safety for patients with a more predictable outcome.
With a femtosecond laser we can create the corneal flap using the safety and accuracy of a computer guided laser – without a blade ever touching your eye. With a laser creating the LASIK flap, Dr Kent achieves the exact thickness of flap that is required.
The precision flap is lifted and the second laser, the excimer laser is used to reshape the inner layers of the cornea with your personalised LASIK treatment profile, incorporating eye recognition technology and accuracy of the Schwind Amaris 1050RS seven dimensional eye tracker to achieve precise delivery of treatment.
At the end of the LASIK laser eye procedure, the flap is naturally relocated into position where it adheres without any stitches.
