Connecticut Bladeless Lasik Surgery

Eye surgeons have been using traditional, bladed LASIK surgical procedures to correct people's vision problems for a number of years, but recently patients are now being given a new choice of surgery bladeless LASIK. Bladeless LASIK surgery is a relatively new non-invasive eye surgery that can correct the same vision problems that traditional bladed LASIK surgery can correct. Nearsightedness, farsightedness and problems caused by astigmatisms can all be corrected with the help of bladeless LASIK surgery. This means patients no longer have to rely upon eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct their vision problems.

The surgical techniques used during bladeless LASIK surgery are very similar to the bladed surgery. The only difference between the two surgeries is the type of surgical instrument used. Traditional bladed LASIK surgery uses a small blade to make the incision along the cornea of the eye. Bladeless LASIK surgeries such as Interlase use a laser to make the incision. The laser makes a smaller, finer cut along the cornea of the eye. The smaller, finer incision along the cornea allows the patient to heal faster and reduces the risk of complications arising from the surgery.

The basics behind both LASIK surgeries are the same. The eye surgeon will cut a small, customized flap along the cornea of the eye. Once the flap has been cut, the eye surgeon will use small, pulsating lasers to reshape the cornea of the eye. The reshaping of the cornea is what corrects a variety of vision problems. Once the reshaping is complete the flap is then placed back down and used as a type of bandage that will cover up the cornea while it heals. There is relatively little pain involved in the procedure and healing time varies from two day to two weeks depending upon the extent of the surgery.

Patients in the state of Connecticut who wish to get bladeless LASIK surgery can expect to pay a little higher than the nationwide average cost. The cost of a Connecticut bladeless LASIK surgery varies from $1,700-$2,400 per eye. The cost will vary depending upon what eye surgeon is used, what eye clinic is used, the complex nature of the surgery and where the surgery takes place. Bladeless LASIK surgery is usually not covered by any type of insurance as it is considered an elective surgery. However, financing may be available at local banks or clinics to help with the out-of-pocket expense of such surgery.
