About IntraLASIK

The most recent breakthrough in laser eye surgery is the IntraLASIK developed by IntraLase Corp. This correction procedure requires state of the art technology.

Based on the tens of millions of interventions performed worldwide and the 22 000 surgeries performed at Smart Choice Medical Travel's partner clinic in Hungary, the IntraLASIK technology can be declared 100% safe.

We know that the vision correction is permanent and results archived last for a lifetime.

So far, no procedure has been able to couple maximum safety with complete painlessness and immediate results.

PRK surgery is completely safe, but the first few postoperative days are quite uncomfortable, sometimes even painful, and archiving a fully corrected vision takes weeks.

LASIK surgery archives quick and painless results, but it can have serious complications.

Until IntraLASIK, patients were forced to choose between discomfort and safety risks.

After millions of IntraLASIK surgeries, IntraLASIK has been found to completely unite the advantages of other laser eye surgeries, without their disadvantages.

You are not forced to make a compromise, because IntraLASIK surgeries offer maximum safety, total painlessness and immediate vision correction at the same time.


Advantages of IntraLASIK

The three most important advantages of IntraLASIK are safe, painless, and quick

IntraLASIK is the only laser vision correction procedure that guarantees:

Maximum safety
Complete painlessness
Immediate results


What happens during IntraLASIK surgery?

IntraLASIK is an outpatient procedure, there is no need for general anaesthesia, however you will be given a mild sedative and anaesthetic eye drops.
IntraLASIK is performed in three steps. The first step is to create a flap of corneal tissue with a laser. The second step is remodelling of the cornea underneath the flap with the excimer laser. Finally, the flap is repositioned.

Flap creation

A corneal suction ring is applied to the eye, holding the eye in place. This step in the procedure can sometimes cause small blood vessels to burst, resulting in bleeding into the white of the eye, a harmless side effect that resolves within a few weeks. The application of the suction ring can sometimes be uncomfortable but not painful.
Once the eye is immobilized, the flap is created.
In IntraLASIK, a special laser makes the flap; this is why IntraLASIK is often called an all laser, or bladeless technology.

Using laser to create the flap makes IntraLASIK completely safe.
A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back, revealing the middle section of the cornea.

Laser remodelling

The second step of the procedure is to use the excimer laser to remodel the corneal tissue. The laser works in a finely controlled manner without damaging the adjacent cornea. No burning with heat or actual cutting is required to ablate the tissue. The layers of tissue removed are tens of micrometers thick. Performing the laser ablation in the deeper level of the cornea typically provides for more rapid visual recovery and less discomfort than the earlier techniques.
During the second step, your vision will become very blurry once the flap is lifted. You will be able to see only white light surrounding the flashing orange light of the laser, which can lead to mild disorientation.

Repositioning of flap

After the laser has reshaped the cornea, the corneal flap is carefully repositioned over the treatment area by the surgeon and checked for the presence of air bubbles, debris, and proper fit on the eye. The flap remains in position by natural adhesion until healing is completed.


What happens after the surgery?

After the surgery, you will get a pair of special transparent protective glasses for a day, which will not allow you to touch the treatment area intentionally or accidentally.

You can leave the clinic after a little rest. An appointment will be arranged for your next day check-up.

It is very important that you always follow your doctor's instructions about aftercare.

He will prescribe for you some eye drops that will help to make the eye correction permanent.

You will also need to wear 100% UV protective sunglasses for about 1-2 month after surgery.

How long will I have to stay at Hungary?

Only 3 days are necessary:

DAY 1: You arrive to Hungary and have your eye examination at the clinic
DAY 2: You have your treatment
DAY 3: After your check-up you can fly back to the UK
