iLASIK™ - Advanced Technology At Every Step.
The Balin Eye & Laser Center is the only facility in Western Massachusetts to offer iLASIK™, an advanced technology approved to treat NASA astronauts and fighter pilots. This unique combination of CustomVue with Iris Registration and Intralase offers an all laser procedure that is precise and accurate to your eyes. When you have the iLASIK™ procedure, you get a completely integrated, completely personalized procedure based on advanced vision correction technology at every step.
- Step 1 – Creating Your Personal Vision Profile
The first step in the iLASIK™ procedure is to perform a series of tests including the WaveScan to determine the individual characteristics of your vision. The WaveScan system creates a 3-D map of the unique imperfections of your eyes. Then our Advanced CustomVue process uses the digital information from that map to design a custom treatment for each of your eyes.
- Step 2 – Making The iLASIK™ Flap
The iLASIK™ procedure exclusively uses an advanced technology called the Intralase Method. The Intralase Method is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your corneal flap, the thin flap of tissue that the doctor folds back in order to perform your iLASIK™ procedure. The Intralase Method delivers outstanding visual results.
- Step 3 – Your Laser Vision Correction Procedure
The Advanced CustomVue procedure is performed using your Personal Vision Profile. The Advanced CustomVue process has earned FDA approval to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections possible, including mild-to-severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and all types of astigmatism.
