Bladeless LASIK-also called blade-free LASIK or femto LASIK.An ultra-fast femtosecond laser is used to create a thin flap in the cornea,that is the clear front surface of the eye. Next,an exciter laser is used to reshape the underlyingcorneal tissue to correct your vision.The flap is then returned to itsoriginal position.
It is called bladeless as it eliminates the need for a bladed Surgical tool called
a microkeratome to create a corneal flap. No surgical blade of any kind is
needed in this procedure.
