Skokie, IL area patients who have considered the benefits of LASIK eye surgery to improve their vision and eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contacts are often readily familiar with this procedure. However, there are other options available to these patients through professionals such as Dr. Stuart P. Sondheimer. He is pleased to offer IntraLase. IntraLase is another option available to patients who are seeking a blade-free alternative to traditional LASIK treatments.
How does IntraLase differ from conventional LASIK surgery?
During traditional LASIK surgery, a special blade called a microkeratome is used in creating a flap from the cornea that can be lifted away while a unique laser reshapes the surface of the cornea. However, with IntraLase, the flap is not created with the use of a blade. Instead, it utilizes a special laser that can create a stronger flat that is easier for the surgeon to maneuver and work underneath. In addition, by using the IntraLase treatment, patients will experience reduced irritation, fewer complications, fewer side effects, and faster healing and recovery.
Why choose IntraLase?
Patients who are interested in learning more about LASIK treatment to improve their eyesight may be interested in finding out how IntraLase can improve their experience as well as their eyesight. Dr. Stuart P. Sondheimer encourages patients who are interested in this alternative treatment to schedule a consultation visit with him and his team. During an evaluation, the doctor can educate patients on the differences between these two treatments and determine the one best for their unique needs. Not everyone is a proper candidate, so a consultation and initial evaluation is required to get a proper diagnosis and discuss the best possible treatments. Our eye care professionals want to ensure that patients enjoy the most advanced solutions to their vision and eye health concerns.
