Intralase

This is an advance in LASIK surgery where the corneal flap is created using a laser.  The older method of flap creation was using a microkeratome blade. Laser flap construction may decrease the chance of human errors in flap construction and makes LASIK surgery slightly safer. See LASIK and femtosecond laser for more information about this surgery.
