What is Ultra Thin-Flap LASIK?

Bladeless LASIK, also known as all-laser LASIK, is an advanced version of the Traditional LASIK procedure in which a femtosecond laser is used to create the flap on the cornea instead of a microkeratome blade. We use the most advanced ZEISS VisuMax Femtosecond Laser.

Traditionally, the surgeon created the corneal flap with a handheld mechanical device (microkeratome) that utilizes a metal blade. This method has worked well over the years; however, the performance of these devices can be unpredictable. With the femtosecond laser, the surgeon uses the precision of a laser to create the safest corneal flap of ideal size and shape. Such precision is important to the safety and success of the entire LASIK procedure. This advanced technology puts unprecedented control in our doctors’ hands, and even allows them to customize the corneal flap for every individual patient.

LASIK involves 4 steps

Step 1: Creation Of A Flap

It only takes 10 seconds of laser time on each eye to create the ultra-thin flap.

Step 2: Lifting Of The Flap

The flap is lifted to reveal the underlying corneal tissue.

Step 3: Reshaping The Cornea

Microscopic amounts of corneal tissue are removed through laser technology.

Step 4: Placing The Flap Back

The flap is placed back in its position, allowing the eye to heal. The eye heals on its own in a few days.


Ultra-Thin Flap Bladeless LASIK  has various advantages:

The flap is even with equal thickness all the way around
The flap has smoother, cleaner edges
Less risk of complications
Higher precision
Quicker recovery
Reduced chance of experiencing halos or glare at night time
Reduced chance of developing dry eye symptoms post-surgery
Treatment can be better tailored to the individual needs of each patient

Our Technology

The ZEISS VisuMax

Flap creation with the ZEISS VisuMax Femtosecond laser is a completely bladeless procedure. This groundbreaking laser system employs high-performance Zeiss VisuMax femtosecond laser technology and is characterized by its outstanding flap-making precision, unsurpassed speed, and gentle treatment technique.

By using the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond technology, our surgeons can create 80 micron ultra-thin LASIK flaps. The creation of ultra-thin flaps ensures a stronger cornea, better visual results, and a significantly reduced chance of developing postoperative dryness.


NIDEK EC 5000 excimer laser system is equipped with one of the most advanced eye-tracking technologies in the vision correction field. Its 200Hz infrared eye-tracking technology follows and responds to tiny eye movements within 5/1000th of a second. This in turn translates into an incredibly smooth corneal treatment surface and faster patient recovery. NIDEK is approved by the FDA for a wide range of nearsighted, astigmatic, and farsighted LASIK corrections. Its sequential treatment of astigmatism and nearsightedness ensures wide treatment zones, optimizing day and night-time quality of vision. NIDEK’s extra-quiet, accurate and rapid treatment minimizes patient anxiety during the treatment and ensures the quickest recovery

Am I a LASIK Candidate?

If you have Myopia (Nearsightedness), Astigmatism, or Hyperopia (Farsightedness), you may qualify for LASIK.

To be a LASIK candidate, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Aged 18 or older
  • No change in prescription within the last 12 months
  • Not pregnant or nursing. Women must wait at least three months after they stop breastfeeding before undergoing LASIK
  • No history of eye disease. People with conditions like glaucoma, corneal impairments, problems with the Retina, or recurring eye infections may not be suitable for LASIK
  • Have certain corneal thickness. Patients who have thin corneas might benefit more from a procedure called Photorefractive Keratectomy or PRK

Other conditions that can impact LASIK candidacy include Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), Dry Eye, Amblyopia, Strabismus (crossed eyes), Uncontrolled diabetes or high blood pressure, Immune disorders, and Vascular illness.
