Microkeratome versus Femtosecond Laser Flap Creation
What’s the difference? Traditional LASIK involves manually creating a corneal flap the doctor will gently fold back so that the LASIK procedure will be performed. A microkeratome, a hand-held oscillating blade is what doctors normally used to create the flap.
With the Femtosecond laser method, pulses of laser light create your corneal flap, which is then lifted so the next step of LASIK—the reshaping of your cornea—can be performed. When your LASIK treatment is over, the flap is securely repositioned into place. This bladeless, computer-guided technology is 100% more accurate than most of the mechanical microkeratomes that surgeons may also use to create a corneal flap.
