A Clear Vision of the Future: Understanding Bladeless LASIK

LASIK procedures have helped people improve their vision for decades, with some removing glasses and contacts permanently. However, many people still shield away from these treatments because of the potential complications that sometimes result. With advanced technology, bladeless LASIK reduces these complications and makes for a more effective treatment option. Kung Eye Center is one of the few eye care practices offering bladeless LASIK in New York and New Jersey. If you have been putting off seeking LASIK because of complications, learn more about the benefits of bladeless options.

What Is Bladeless LASIK?

Bladeless LASIK is an alternative to traditional LASIK therapy, which uses a rotating diamond blade to create a flap in the cornea. Instead of a diamond blade, the bladeless LASIK system creates a flap with a precise laser. The entire LASIK procedure uses specialized lasers to change the shape of the cornea and help patients see with greater clarity.

Are You a Good Candidate for Bladeless LASIK?

Good candidates for this LASIK treatment are those who are 21 or older and have stable vision that has not changed in at least two years. While there is a LASIK self-test available to determine whether you are a candidate for traditional LASIK, you must schedule a consultation with Kung Eye Center to get approval for bladeless LASIK. Your Kung Eye doctor will evaluate your eyes, prescription, and overall health to determine if LASIK is a viable treatment option. If you have certain eye conditions, the doctor may disqualify you for LASIK procedures.

What to Expect From the Bladeless LASIK Treatment

During the examination before surgery, your doctor will take precise measurements to plot the treatment. You will receive numbing drops to relax your eyes and prevent any discomfort. Dr. Khan will place a lid speculum to keep your eyelids open throughout treatment. Suction rings keep your eyes from moving so the laser can precisely target the treatment areas. At the end of the surgery, Dr. Khan will close the flap with no need for sutures because the cornea is self-sealing and healing.

Most people achieve 20/20 vision or better with bladeless LASIK, but results could vary. Some may only accomplish 20/40 vision, allowing them to wear less powerful eyeglasses or contacts.

Bladeless LASIK offers the following benefits:

  • Sharper vision
  • Shorter surgery time
  • Fewer complications
  • Increased comfort
  • Speedier recovery
