The edges stick down more firmly, again adding more strength. This is a safety advantage for bladeless LASIK.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) April 30, 2015
Dr. Leonard Bley, the founder of New York Lasik Center, is pleased to announce that NY Lasik offers bladeless LASIK procedures to his patients. As Dr. Bley explained, the bladeless surgery relies on the use of lasers for the LASIK corrective eye surgery. This 100 percent bladeless procedure may cause fewer incidents of dry eye, as well as a reduced need for follow up treatments.
Bladeless LASIK uses two different kinds of lasers during the surgery, noted Dr. Bley, who is a highly reputable ophthalmologist in New York City. The first one, called a femtosecond laser, directs laser energy in a precise way to create a thin hinged flap, which Dr. Bley then temporarily lifts from the cornea. The second type of laser, called the excimer laser, emits energy which is applied to the exposed eye surface, where the tissue is then removed in an exact pattern to alter the shape of the cornea.
“The laser is much better at making a flap that is of uniform thickness and precision,” Dr. Bley explained, adding that it remains thin near the edges where he wants most to preserve the strength of the cornea.
“The edges stick down more firmly, again adding more strength. This is a safety advantage for bladeless LASIK.”
Most patients who undergo the bladeless LASIK surgery literally see dramatic differences by the next day. Dr. Bley, who has over 20 years experience as a refractive surgeon, said that the procedure is safer than long term use of contacts. His customized treatment means that many patients are even able to return to their normal routine the very next day.
Dr. Bley, who is also the founder of the Laser and Microsurgery Institute, has performed over 20,000 refractive and cataract procedures over the years. Internationally recognized among his peers in the LASIK industry, Dr. Bley truly enjoys helping his patients eliminate their need for glasses or contacts.
