LASIK Eye Surgery Technology
iLASIK / Bladeless LASIK
Dr. Greenberg performs iLASIK, otherwise known as all-laser LASIK, a 100% blade-free, individually customized LASIK procedure which makes LASIK safer than ever before. The first step in the LASIK procedure is creating a thin corneal flap. Traditionally, this flap was made using an instrument called microkeratome (blade).
Using the Wavelight FS200 femtosecond laser, Dr. Greenberg can create a corneal flap by applying tiny, rapid pulses of laser light forming microscopic bubbles at a specific depth of your cornea. As the laser moves back and forth across your eye, a uniform layer of bubbles forms just below the corneal surface. The corneal flap is created by gently separating the tissue where the bubbles have formed. This creates a smooth, even surface where the flap is lifted allowing the excimer laser to remove a microscopic amount of tissue from the cornea, gently reshaping it.
Dr. Greenberg is able to customize the LASIK flap according to the shape of your eye, ensuring the best possible results. Flap creation takes about 15 seconds and is followed by the excimer laser portion that reshapes your corneal surface with precision.
iLASIK is the only laser eye surgery approved by NASA and trusted by all branches of the US military.

Truly a life changing procedure.
“I started as a patient at Dr. Greenberg’s office approximately 6 years ago. She was recommended through a colleague in the medical community for her surgical skill, knowledge, and kind bedside manner. After wearing contacts and glasses the majority of my life I was finally offered LASIK eye surgery. Eager for the opportunity, I underwent LASIK on 03/05/2020. I have always struggled with dry eyes while wearing contacts and even glasses. Within a few weeks of having LASIK not only was my vision more clear than it has ever been with corrective lenses, but my eyes were even less dry. After a couple months I was rarely using eye drops. Two years later my vision remains crystal clear and my eyes feel as good as they have ever felt. Thanks again for doing such great work.”
