iLASIK Surgery in Vancouver and Edmonton
iLASIK, often referred to as “all laser LASIK or bladeless LASIK,” is an advanced form of LASIK eye surgery. The highly skilled and internationally recognized eye surgeons of King LASIK are proud to offer their laser eye surgery Vancouver, Edmonton and Victoria patients this leading-edge method that promotes greater precision and reduces a number of risks associated with flap complications.
How Is iLASIK Different?
In conventional LASIK, the corneal flap is created with a surgical blade known as microkeratome. iLASIK, on the other hand, combines a bladeless IntraLase laser with wavefront-guided measurement techniques for precise corneal flap creation, eliminating the need for a surgical blade. In fact, the iLASIK method is the only technique that has been approved by NASA for vision correction surgery on its astronauts.
At King LASIK we offer the iLASIK technique because our surgeons strongly believe in the advantages this technology has to offer, including:
- Maximum precision
- Individualized flap creation
- Reduced risk of complications
- Shortened recovery
- Maximum patient comfort
- Better vision correction results
When combined with our Custom LASIK technique and state-of-the-art excimer lasers, the iLASIK procedure leads to the best possible vision correction outcome, allowing our patients to achieve life-changing results. In some cases, our patients experience 20/20 vision or better the very next day following iLASIK and are able to greatly reduce their dependence on corrective eyewear such as glasses and contact lenses.
Drs. Joseph King and Colin Nelson of King LASIK are extremely thrilled to offer their patients this revolutionary LASIK eye surgery method. In addition to performing LASIK, the surgeons of King LASIK have helped numerous cataract surgery patients overcome impaired vision caused by cataracts, a debilitating, progressive eye condition.
