The difference between traditional LASIK and bladeless Z-LASIK is the method by which the flap is created.
The Laser Vision Correction of Choice
In bladeless Z-LASIK, a femtosecond laser is used to cut a thin flap in the cornea to access the deeper layers of the cornea for re-shaping whereas in traditional LASIK a microkeratome (mechanical device with blade) cuts the flap.
How long does the Z-LASIK procedure take?
The entire procedure on the treatment day usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes which includes the time in preparing you for the procedure as well as final examinations after the procedure. Actual time in the laser suite is usually about 10 to 15 minutes.
LCC is proud to be the ONLY laser vision centre offering this new, bladeless Z-LASIK procedure to Lindsay and surrounding area residents.
Do I still need to see my eye doctor if I can see perfectly after LASIK surgery?
Yes, you should always see your doctor of optometry regularly after having LASIK, as it is possible to develop eye diseases, like glaucoma, without having any symptoms.
