iLasik (Femto Laser)

What is iLasik Laser Surgery?

iLasik laser surgery, also known as bladeless laser, is a personalized treatment laser method used in the permanent treatment of refractive errors such as hyperopia, astigmatism and myopia. It is also used to open channels for rings used in the treatment of keratoconus.

During the operation, intralase (blade-free method) and wavefront technology, which reveals the three-dimensional topography of the eye surface, are applied individually.

What is Femto Laser (Bladeless Laser)?

Femto laser is a type of infrared laser that uses intralase technology and allows flap opening without a blade, operating at wavelengths of very small nanometers. It is used to open corneal flaps in the treatment of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. It is also used in opening intracorneal ring segments and corneal transplantation.

Thanks to the femtosecond laser, more stable corneal flaps can be opened, while various excimer laser operations.

What Are The Differences Between iLasik and Lasik?

While femto laser is used to open the corneal flap in Lasik surgery, a microkeratome knife is used in LASIK operations. Therefore, the risk of complications is low.

Unlike LASIK operations, a three-dimensional map of the eye can be created with the wavefront technology used in iLasik operations. In this way, a treatment method that is as personalized as possible for each patient can be applied. Finally, it is a more advanced technology than the LASIK method.

What Should Be Taken Into Consideration Before Surgery?

Before the treatment, the general health condition of the patient is checked by the ophthalmologist. Before the operation, a special examination is performed on the patient to determine whether the patient is eligible for the operation. The patient is informed about the surgery process and possible risks, and the operation is decided upon with the patient's approval.

The patient should not apply any make-up around the eyes on the day of the surgery. The ophthalmologist decides whether or not to use blood thinners on the day of the surgery. Patients using contact lenses should stop wearing contact lenses a few days beforehand.

If there are other issues that the patient should pay attention to before the surgery, these issues will be informed to the patient by the ophthalmologist.

To Whom Can It Be Applied?

People over the age of 18,

with no significant changes in eyeglasses prescription over the previous year,

with sufficient corneal thickness,

patients with up to 4 degrees of astigmatism, up to 10 degrees of myopia and up to 6 degrees of hyperopia,

p>

It can be applied to people who do not have diabetes or similar systemic diseases,

It can also be applied to patients whose eye structure is found suitable for femto lasik by the ophthalmologist as a result of detailed examination.

How is Laser Surgery Performed?

First of all, a 3D map of the patient's eye is created with wavefront technology. The obtained information is sent to the excimer laser for personalized use.

Before starting the surgery, the patient's eye is anesthetized with anesthetic drops. After anesthesia, the treatment is applied by creating a flap with a femtosecond laser without a blade.

The cornea is reshaped with laser beams in line with the information sent to the excimer device. The treatment is completed by placing the separated flap into place. Thus, the refractive error of the eye is corrected.

During the application, the excimer device uses the advantage of the eye recognition system to follow the rotation movement of the eye and ensures that the laser beams are locked in the correct area in the cornea.

The operation takes approximately 15-20 minutes for both eyes.

In the treatment;

Thanks to Wavefront technology, it can be applied precisely and individually,

It is a safe method,

it can be applied to both eyes at the same time,

patients can be discharged on the same day,

the recovery process after surgery is rapid.

The effectiveness of the method has been proven and FDA approved.

The visual acuity achieved is extremely high.

It is bladeless.

It is performed without touching.

It also provides the opportunity to treat patients with thin corneas.

The risk of flap slippage and wrinkling is low.

Discomfort from car headlights at night is less likely.

Healing is faster.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can astigmatism be corrected?

In addition to distance and near vision problems, astigmatism can also be corrected in a single session.

Will Diopters Increase Again After The Treatment?

It is not possible for the diopters to increase in the following years after treatment. If your diopters still change and not stable, then they may reappear even after the surgery. That's why your eyeglasses prescription should be stable for at least the last year.

How Long Does The Operation Take?

The treatment is completed in approximately 5 - 15 minutes. The treatment is performed under eye drop anesthesia.

Is There Any Pain or Burning After The Laser Treatment?

Since a valve is created in the cornea during the treatment, there may be pain, stinging and watering for up to 6 hours after the surgery, and then these will disappear.

Is It Risky to Move The Eye During The Treatment?

The person's eye is detected by the excimer laser device and the movements of the eye around its own axis can be followed. For this reason, there is no risk of moving the eye.
