With the introduction of upgraded technology, Dr. Douglas Cullom joins a select band of leading ophthalmic surgeons in the USA in offering this advanced technology which enhances the safety and precision of the LASIK procedure and provides millions of US citizens with improved vision.
The iFS laser Technology offers a highly sophisticated way to prepare the eye for LASIK without a blade ever touching it and provides the eye surgeon with the ability to select LASIK flap dimensions customizable to individual refractive errors and corneal anatomy
The iFS laser creates what has been called “The 10-Second Flap” through unprecedented speed and accuracy- a quadrillionth of a second each -and is designed to deliver biomechanically engineered flaps customized for each individual cornea.
This laser procedure guarantees improved patient comfort, accurate visual recovery and many patients see better immediately with recovery typically lasting only a few hours.
The iFS laser represents a quantum leap in LASIK surgery technology and has raised the bar on the world’s standards for optimal vision results both in the area of safety, speed and precision of LASIK surgery.
It has proven to be 2.5 times faster than the previous generation femtosecond lasers, creating precise, predicable flaps in less than 10 seconds per eye.
The iFS laser is FDA approved and is a result of more than 10 years of clinical research with NASA astronauts, US Air Force pilots and all branches of the US Military favoring its use - a tribute to its improved technology, safety features and precision performance.
Nearly four million LASIK procedures have been performed worldwide employing the Intralase method which is now used in an estimated 61.1% of all US LASIK procedures.
Clinical studies have showed that more than 95% of patients treated using the Intralase method have achieved faster visual recovery, fewer dry eye symptoms, and maximum flap stability.
The iFS laser treatment at Cullom Eye & Laser Center is provided under the direct supervision of Dr. Douglas Cullom, a board certified ophthalmologist in VA specializing in LASIK Laser Vision Correction.
Dr. Douglas Cullom additionally held the rank of Commander in the Department of Ophthalmology at the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Virginia and has provided laser refractive surgery to the elite Navy SEAL units.
