DaVinci Bladeless LASIK – Clear Advantage Vision Correction Center was the FIRST center in Northern New England offering an “all laser,” blade-free, LASIK procedure. In fact, the DaVinci Femtosecond laser is one of the newest, and most advanced bladeless lasers on the market today. In traditional LASIK surgery, a thin flap in the cornea is created by a microkeratome (a mechanical device with a precise, sharp blade). The DaVinci Femtosecond laser solves the “flap cutting with a blade” by using an extraordinarily fast and ultra precise laser that essentially creates millions of air bubbles in the cornea that overlap creating a “bubble” on the front of the eye, which is then gently lifted. Being a great alternative for patients who previously were unable to get LASIK due to thin corneas or dry eyes, Bladeless LASIK is the perfect solution.
Description of the DaVinci Bladeless LASIK procedure – Prior to surgery, the surgeon will go through the procedure step-by-step so that you will know what will be taking place. Before starting surgery, one of your eyes will be covered while the other eye is being treated.
