I- lasik represent all of the newest developments that have occurred with lasik surgery over the last 12 years. One of the greatest fears that patients have when undergoing lasik surgery is having a metal blade run across their eye while making a lasik flap. Fortunately, thanks to " intralase" reliably safe, thin flaps are now created in seconds. The intralase is a laser that utilizes ultra-violet light to create a .1 millimeter deep flap across the cornea. This thin flap allows for very quick healing time. When compared to metal blades are more stable while at the same time allowing for quicker visual rehabilitation and less dry eye.
Other noteworthy developments with I-lasik include wave front technology that analyzes the focusing error of the eye using space age technology found in such places as the Hubble telescope and the Visx S-4 variable spot laser for reshaping the eye.
The eye surgeons at North Shore Eye care have been involved with laser refractive for greater than 12 years. Since that time millions of laser procedures have safely been performed. We treat patients on Long Island as far east as Riverhead and the Hamptons, including Greenport, Southhold, Cuthogue, Mattituck, Auebogue, Shoreham, Wading River, Ridge, Shirley, Mastic Beach, Coram, Middle Island, Manorville, Ronkonkoma, Holbrook, Smithtown, Stony Brook, Dix Hills, Huntington, Plainview, Mineola, Great Neck, Port Washington, Glen Cove, and as far west as New York City.
