Advanced iLASIK Technology in Vineland
iLASIK is the most technologically advanced and personalized LASIK surgery available – 100% bladefree, it is the only LASIK procedure that is completely computer driven, fully customizable and utilizes the iFS Advanced femtosecond laser to create the flap, followed by the StarS4 IR Excimer Laser with Activetrak technology to precisely reshape the cornea. Using iDesign WaveScan digital information, the CustomVue treatment plan allows for the advanced, personalized correction available.
Dr. Pernelli is the only ophthalmologist in the 5 southern counties of New Jersey – Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem – to perform Advanced iLASIK Technology to his LASIK patients and advanced technology to those requiring PRK.
Wavefront guided technology measures the way light transmits through the patient’s eye and analyzes over 1,200 data points creating a personalized map or fingerprint. The information is then transferred to the laser allowing Dr. Pernelli to create a truly personalized vision correct plan for each patient. Using iLASIK Technology, iLASIK has been proven to be so successful that all branches of the US military and NASA now allow LASIK for their servicemen and women. The US Navy has approved this surgery for its fighter pilots and Navy SEAL units and a recent FDA clinical trial of this technology demonstrated that 94% of treated patients were able to see 20/20 or better without glasses.
Used to correct blurry vision, nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, iLASIK has been demonstrated to be more highly effective in eliminating glasses and improving night vision than traditional LASIK surgery. Other benefits include:
- Fewer dry eye symptoms
- Greater flap stability
- Computer-guided precision
- Faster procedure time resulting in greater patient comfort
Dr. Pernelli was the first LASIK surgeon in South Jersey to perform 100% bladeless LASIK using IntraLase™ technology: iLASIK. On the very first day he introduced iLASIK to his practice he performed surgery on three staff members all of whom had results of 20/20 or better. He continues to perform iLASIK exclusively on his patients allowing them to enjoy greater freedom from glasses and contact lenses. Most patients achieve 20/20 vision or better and many patients report that their vision after iLASIK is much clearer than they had been able to attain wearing glasses or contact lenses.
