More About Beyer Laser Center
Dr. Beyer is the Medical Director and Chief Surgeon of the Beyer Laser Center. Each patient is meticulously examined by Dr. Beyer and his team to determine the best option for vision correction.
LASIK at Beyer Laser Center involves two surgical steps: the creation of the flap, and the reshaping of the cornea. Instead of using a blade to create the flap, our patients have the option of using the Blade-free IntraLase laser method. The IntraLase femtosecond laser, which is the latest advancement in Blade-free LASIK technology, uses pulses of laser light to create the flap. The IntraLase laser is often considered to be safer and more accurate than a blade. The second step involves reshaping the cornea with the VISX Star S4 ActiveTrak laser. When the laser treatment is complete, the flap is repositioned into place.
This Blade-free, computer-guided technology is more accurate than most of the mechanical microkeratomes (hand-held devices with a thin metal blade) that surgeons may also use to create a corneal flap.
The Blade-free IntraLase method has been used successfully on hundreds of thousands of eyes and is trusted by Dr. Beyer to deliver exceptional results. The use of this advanced technology is part of his commitment to provide you with the ultimate in comfort, safety and outstanding vision. Because of the superior accuracy of the IntraLase method, certain patients who are ineligible for LASIK may be able to have treatment.
The IntraLase laser strategically creates a corneal flap that prepares the eye for a second laser. The VISX Star S4 excimer laser system is then used, which offers the newest technology in custom wavefront LASIK. Each patient’s cornea is measured in minute detail. It creates a “fingerprint” of the eye that is programmed into the excimer laser so that each cornea is reshaped with a unique laser profile. The combination of the surgeon’s advanced skills and the newest technology wavefront-guided LASIK system provides patients with excellent results.
