At Carolina Cornea and Laser Center your LASIK flap is created with our iFS® Advanced Femtosecond Laser. This laser uses an infrared beam of light to precisely separate tissue through a process called photodisruption. In this process, the focused laser pulses of the Intralase divide material at the molecular level with minimal transfer of heat or impact to the surrounding tissue. Femtosecond laser technology is highly advanced, and laser flaps can be made more safely than blade flaps, producing the best results with the least complications.
To change the shape of the cornea and correct your vision we use the iDesign® Refractive Studio. This tool uses topography-integrated, wavefront-guided technology to generate a super-precise map of a patient’s unique “optical fingerprint”—that is, the shape of the eye, combined with other aspects of the eye’s anatomy—to deliver a highly personalized LASIK procedure. Wavefront LASIK is the most technologically advanced software available, and Carolina Cornea is the only facility in Upstate South Carolina to offer this specific type of LASIK software.
