iLASIK™

Advanced Laser Vision Correction with Wavefront Technology and Blade-free Femtosecond Lasers.

Are you seeking a Maine iLASIK surgeon?

iLASIKiLasik™ is a new brand of LASIK eye surgery that has been developed by AMO/VISX and Intralase technology. iLASIK is currently the most refined and advanced technology for improved vision now available in Maine. Traditional LASIK has been wonderful but now after over 10 years of research we have technological improvements that lead to improvements in vision correction. With over a decade of research and clinical results, LASIK Doctors and industry experts sought a more predictable solution. iLASIK now provides this solution. By combining CustomVue wavefront technology with VISX™ Star4 active tracking capability and a blade-free femtosecond laser for an ALL-laser LASIK, we can now achieve a more precise result. The technology used in the iLASIK procedure has been thoroughly tested and scrutinized by doctors who overwhelmingly claim the advantages with improved safety and precision. It is clear now that iLASIK truly represents a technological combination unmatched in vision correction.

iLASIK Candidacy

iLASIKIf you were not a candidate for LASIK eye surgery prior to iLASIK you could possibly now be a candidate. Given the wavefront technology and bladeless mircokeratome technology additions to LASIK, the doors are now open for some previously unqualified candidates. If you were previously determined to be a LASIK candidate you will most likely also be a candidate for iLASIK. In order to determine candidacy for this procedure please consult with a qualified iLASIK surgeon in your area. There are some conditions that will still exclude certain patients from becoming a candidate, however, if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism there is a solid chance that you will be an iLASIK candidate.

Steps to iLASIK

  1. Take iLASIK self-Evaluation TEST
  2. Determine your candidacy with a qualified iLASIK doctor
  3. Discuss payment options or financing
  4. Schedule surgery and remove contacts for 10 days

New Information Regarding LASIK safety (AAO 2006)

There has been some new information that was reported at the AAO meeting 2006 in Las Vegas (American Academy of Ophthalmology) and at the Asia Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology 2007 meeting that LASIK lasts longer than expected. A study actually involved 200 eyes and determined that with both LASIK eye surgery and PRK both procedures maintained excellent long-term results. If you are interested in the longevity of LASIK eye surgery you can discuss this with your LASIK surgeon.
