Laser/Intralasic No Touch

A number of factors can cause refractive problems in the eye. These issues lead to eyesight disorders and significantly reduce the patients' quality of life. As technology improves, new generation treatment approaches are being developed to treat such conditions. The no contact laser technique is one of them.

With no touch laser treatment, as the names suggest, the eye is not touched during the procedure. Myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism can all be treated using the no touch laser treatment. Additionally, individuals who have received treatment with a no-touch laser may later have other eye procedures, such as cataract removal.

Myopia and other eye conditions are becoming more prevalent in young people today. The constant use of screens throughout the day, whether on computers, cellphones, or tablets, is one of the main causes of this. Additionally, more people are wearing glasses or contact lenses. With the use of the No Touch laser, dry eye disease and other allergy conditions brought on by contact lens wear can also be treated.

How is No Touch Laser Used?

The fact that neither local or general anesthetic is needed for the treatment is one of the no touch laser application's main benefits. With drop anesthesia, no touch laser treatment can be performed. It is enough to operate one eye for around a minute. Problems in both eyes can be treated at the same time. Overall, the process lasts about 5 to 6 minutes.

Patients simply need to look at the green light from where they are sitting throughout this time. After a brief period of relaxation, patients are released. Special eyewear must be used for the first three days following the No laser application. In addition, it is important for patients to use drops for a while after the procedure.

Who is Eligible for No Touch Laser?

Before the no touch laser application, the patients should be examined in detail. This method is only used for those who have problems seeing near and far. No touch laser operation can be easily applied to people who have had cataracts before. Similarly, it is okay for patients to have cataract surgery after the no touch laser procedure. For people whose corneas are thinner or steeper than normal, no touch laser application is the only method that can be applied. Other laser methods cannot be applied to people with thin corneas.

In addition, those under the age of 18, pregnant women, people with ongoing sight problems, people with significant eye dryness, and people with cataracts cannot have no touch laser treatment. Additionally, those interested in a no-touch laser should not have intermediate or advanced keratoconus, as well as any concurrent eye conditions including retinal or corneal degeneration.

What is Intralasic?

Intralasik is one of the new generation eye surgeries. The flap that is removed in Lasik surgery is lifted by the specialist physician who performs the operation. In the intralasik method, this flap is lifted with a laser. In this way, the risk of flap complications in the patient is minimized. In addition, patients get a clearer vision after surgery. As the spot diameter of the device used in the operation becomes smaller, the obtained corneal flap bed becomes smoother.

Today, there are different devices such as 30 khz, 60 khz and 150 khz. Intralasic surgery is also known as bladeless surgery. Thanks to the sensitive laser, a special treatment can be planned for each person. One of the important advantages of the intralasik method is that thinner flaps can be created compared to other methods. In this way, it can be used even in people with thin corneas.
