IntraLase™ FS Laser System in Southeast Idaho
There’s Only One IntraLase™ FS Laser System
Increasingly, successful LASIK procedures have one thing in common — they use AMO’s IntraLase™ FS Laser System. IntraLase™ FS Technology clearly delivers clinical advantages to enhance our practice.
- Our 4th-generation laser is designed as a primary laser for LASIK procedures and advanced corneal surgery procedures
- 60 kHz performance delivers microkeratome speed and laser precision
- Better biomechanical stability vs. a microkeratome
- Lower induced high-order aberrations vs. a microkeratome
- Better refractive outcomes vs. a microkeratome
In a recent study (Sub-Bowman’s Keratomileusis with IntraLase™ FS Laser System vs. PRK), IntraLase treated eyes demonstrated clinically and statistically better visual acuities (uncorrected and best corrected) through one month postop compared to surface treatment.1
- Uncorrected Vision
- Through one week postop, eight times more IntraLase eyes achieved 20/20 or better uncorrected vision compared to PRK eyes1
- Superiority continued at one month, where 45% more IntraLase eyes achieved 20/20 or better uncorrected vision compared to PRK eyes1
- Best Corrected Vision
- Clinically and statistically significant improvement through one month with LASIK with the IntraLase Method over PRK when comparing baseline BCVA and postop BCVA1
- At one month, more than twice as many IntraLase eyes showed BCVA gain compared to PRK eyes1

By replacing the blade commonly used for corneal flap creation with a femtosecond laser, AMO® has made LASIK eye surgery safer than ever before. The IntraLase™ FS Laser System delivers micron-level accuracy 100% greater than a microkeratome for more accurate and consistent flap thickness — which is critical for a successful LASIK outcome.
Retrospective analysis comparing LASIK results with IntraLase™ FS Technology versus the two leading microkeratomes demonstrated that IntraLase™ FS Laser System performed better in three areas important to LASIK results and safety: flap thickness, induced astigmatism, and cell injury.3 There are fewer flap-related complications with the IntraLase Method:
- Minimal risk of sight-threatening events (free caps, globe penetration, buttonhole flaps, decentered flaps, and/or incomplete cuts)
- No risk of corneal abrasion
- Reduced risk of dry eye
