It works by using tiny, rapid pulses of laser light to create your corneal flap(instead of using a metal blade), during the first step of LASIK. Each pulse of light passes through the top layers of your cornea and forms a microscopic bubble at a specific depth and position within your eye. The doctor sets that depth. The IntraLase laser moves back and forth across your eye, creating a uniform layer of bubbles just beneath your corneal surface. Just before applying laser vision correction, the doctor creates your corneal flap by gently separating the tissue where these bubbles have formed, then, it is folded back so the doctor can proceed with the second step of your LASIK treatment.
Here is the testimonial of Dave Gotaas from Chicago, US, who had successful eye surgery at Birinci Eye Hospital, in Istanbul, Turkey.
One week later after my cataract removal surgery, I felt better than ever! Of course, my eye operation was a total success! To my surprise, now I am able to read small letters without my eyeglasses. I had also discovered how gorgeous are the cities of Istanbul and Ankara! I enjoyed every minute of our city tours! Everything looks clear and the colours are so vivid. Wow! This is what I will miss!
I met Eric, the owner of Ageless Wonders and my doctor Dr. Ilka De Obaldía. The staff and doctors all have such a good relationship that I really felt at home with them. Even the front desk receptionist spoke very good English; better than my Spanish. They were all just wonderful."
