CLEO 2012 (Optical Society of America)

May 9, 2012 (San Jose, CA) Speaking | “Femtosecond Technology Comes of Age in Ophthalmology” During the past decade, the femtosecond laser has emerged to become widely used in refractive surgery.  This process began with LASIK and now continues with cataract surgery, the two most widely performed surgical procedures (elective surgery and traditional surgery, respectively) in the US and likely worldwide.  This talk will review the history of commercialization of this technology. Panel Description: The introduction of femtosecond lasers to improve vision has revolutionized...

Future Growth in LASIK: Understanding and Reaching Generation Y

Since its commercial introduction to the US in 1995, Laser Vision Correction has evolved significantly in terms of technology and technique. Today, refractive surgeons agree that the procedure now available to consumers, called the iLASIK™ procedure(the combination of the Advanced CustomVue® Procedure and the IntraLase® Method of flap creation), is far superior to the technology and technique used in the first years following the initial FDA approval… Tags: surgeons, Technology, Vision Correction, Vision, Laser Vision Correction, Refractive Surgeons, Procedure, LASIK, surgery,...

IntraLase’s International Expansion A Growing Global Presence

Twenty years after laser vision correction was first performed, the technology utilized in the procedure today has improved dramatically to make the procedure (now known as “LASIK”) even safer and better than before. One of the key transitions currently underway in many markets is in how the corneal flap is created, moving from a “bladed” approach with traditional microkeratomes to an “all laser” approach utilizing the femtosecond laser as well as the excimer… Tags: laser, Procedure, Vision Correction, flap, Laser Vision Correction, traditional microkeratomes, Technology,...
