How does iLASIK work?

iLASIK combines the most advanced technology for measurement in the world, and two of the world’s most advanced computer-guided LASIK lasers, into one safe and highly effective procedure.

Your personalized iLASIK procedure:

iLASIK - step 1

Step 1: Unique vision profile
First, we use the most advanced measurement technology in the world to painlessly measure your eyes. WaveScan technology creates a 3D map of each eye, detecting even the most minute imperfections, so that your iLASIK surgeon can custom-fit your treatment to your individual eyes.


iLASIK - step 2

Step 2: Personalized iLASIK flap
Next, the first of two lasers – called an IntraLase – is used to create a flap in your cornea (the surface of your eye), which is folded back to perform iLASIK. This blade-free method delivers outstanding results, with more patients achieving 20/20 vision or better, and better night vision as well.


iLASIK - step 3Step 3: Custom laser vision correction
Finally, the Advanced CustomVue laser corrects your vision to the exact specifications of your unique vision profile. This laser offers the highest level of precision, and literally locks onto your eye, reacting automatically to the finest movements during surgery to provide a safe and accurate result.


Now that you know what’s involved in the iLASIK procedure, you should book your complimentary iLASIK appointment and find out if you are a good candidate for iLASIK.

What are you waiting for? With the safety, precision and effectiveness of the world’s most advanced LASIK surgery, there’s never been a better time to have laser vision correction.
