Surface ablation, or No-Cut LASIK/PRK, continues to maintain a strong foothold in an increasingly competitive refractive surgery field. Some surgeons use the procedure more than in the past or even exclusively, arguing that today’s advanced technology can make visual recovery faster, postop pain more manageable and complications easier to prevent, positioning this pioneering form of laser vision correction for growth and enduring success. As with most procedures, this one requires the skilled hands and eyes of knowledgeable, experienced and committed surgeons.
Dr. Sandra Belmont was an early pioneer of No-Cut LASIK eye surgery, which continues to be one of her most popular services to patients. “I’ve tried the newer surface ablation procedures and continue to find that No-Cut Lasik/PRK is superior,” says Dr. Belmont.
What is No-Cut LASIK/PRK?
Bladeless LASIK, is an all-laser procedure that enhances the safety and success of traditional LASIK. While traditional LASIK utilizes a hand-held microkeratome blade to create the corneal flap needed to access the inner layers of the cornea, bladeless LASIK uses a femtosecond laser to precisely and gently create the flap. By eliminating the use of the blade, bladeless LASIK reduced the risk of complications and improved the precision of laser vision correction.
