Custom LASIK

The first step of the Intralase procedure is attachment of a silicone vacuum ring to the front of the eye. This ring is then used to dock the eye to the applanation cone of the Intralase. The applanation cone is really a glass plate that flattens the surface of the cornea by pressing down on it. Once the eye is docked to the Intralase, the laser will then deposit pulses of energy a very precise distance beyond the contact surface of the applanation cone (i.e., at a very precise depth in the cornea). Each pulse creates a microscopic gas bubble. The pulses are deposited in such a pattern that you end up with a whole layer of contiuous gas bubbles at a very precise depth in the cornea. Next, rings of pulses are stacked on each other at the periphery of the gas bubble layer, until the surface of the cornea is reached. Now what you have is a potential flap in the cornea defined by microscopic gas bubbles. Next, the surgeon will lift the flap by using a tiny probe to connect all the gas bubbles (or connect the dots, if you will). ...continue
