iLASIK® & Other Surgery Procedures

iLASIK® Procedures

THE "ACUITY OF VISION" WILL BE CHANGED BY THE WORLD'S HIGHEST QUALITY MEDICAL TREATMENT.

iLASIK® is the world's best quality vision correction surgery which Kobe Kanagawa Eye Clinic offers.

What is iLASIK®?

LASIK's popularity in Japan has been increasing every year since 2000. However, there are many people who are not informed about the procedure and still feel anxious towards LASIK treatments compared to Europe and the United States.

Combined 3 medical technology

AMO (Abbott Medical Optics, Inc) has unified the World's best Medical Technologies to offer safer and the highest quality of Laser Vision Correction.

Wave Scan

The technology is used to measure each individual's cornea condition precisely and to program the ideal Laser irradiation.

Intralase FS60

The technology is used to create a flap with controlled depth and width safely by using Laser beams.

VISX Star S4 IR

The technology is used to irradiate Laser beams safely and precisely to reshape the cornea to correct refractive imperfections.

Safety and stability of iLASIK®

Lasik was approved by the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Aeronautics And Space Administration (NASA), based on the effectiveness and superior results of iLASIK®.

Safety and stability of visual acuity was tested and approved under extreme conditions, including acceleration in a fighter jet, change in onboard atmospheric pressure at the time of launch, etc, and work in outer space. The all-laser LASIK technologies, which utilize Wavefront guided and Femtosecond lasers, have also been cleared for U.S. military personnel, including most recently Air Force pilots.

The Customized Laser Vision Correction Surgery fits for each individual eye.

As fingerprints differ from each individual, the shape of the cornea and its thickness are the same; no two are alike. With the latest medical technology, it is possible to create a customized Laser irradiation program just for you. It enables us to correct the finest distortion of your cornea and deliver better acuity than glasses and/or contact lenses.

iLASIK® improves the quality of your vision as well as your vision.

Did you know that there is a difference in acuity between the same 20/20 vision? The two pictures below show an example of the same 20/20 vision. As you can see, there is a significant difference in quality of vision. Some difficulty in vision correction remains by conventional LASIK method, which is not capable to ensure acuity improvement even though the vision has been corrected. CustomVue is capable of improving the quality of your vision by maximizing the potential acuity of your eyes.

20/20 Vision with clearer, sharper acuity. / 20/20 Vision with blurry acuity.

Driving will be safer and more comfortable. The iLASIK® will provide clear night vision.

Some patients who are treated by conventional LASIK may have sensitivity to light at night.
Light may seem like it is bursting in the air, or creating double vision, blurred and cloudy vision. That would make driving at night somewhat difficult. iLASIK® has resolved these light sensitivities significantly. According to US research data, four times as many patients treated by iLASIK® have testified that their night vision improved, compared to the number of patients treated by conventional LASIK methods.

Kobe Kanagawa Eye Clinic Premium iLASIK® TESTIMONIALS

Aki Higashihara / This great feeling can be understood only by those who received the iLASIK® treatment!! I truly think I should have done this much earlier in my life. / Before iLASIK®:20/200 for both eyes / After iLasik®:20/12 for both eyes

Right after the surgery, my vision was somewhat blurry, so I was anxious as to whether I would be able to see clearly. However the very next day, I was very surprised that my vision was 20/12 when I came in for the 1 day post-op check-up.

Moreover, I was so excited when I could see the scrolling words on my TV screen in the morning. Since I love to drive, I was very happy when I drove my car without glasses or contact lenses for the first time.
The biggest difference from wearing contact lenses is my sense of perspective: I can see clearly, have improved depth perception and see that every object has three dimensions. Even the landscape in the far distance is now much clearer. When I saw Mt. Fuji, I was able to see the details of the snowcapped mountaintop, which really amazed me. My daily life has become much more comfortable. I cannot thank Kobe Kanagawa Eye Clinic enough. It was nice that my sister received Premium iLASIK® treatment at the same time as I did. I feel lucky to have her share this great feeling with me.
This great feeling can be understood only by those who actually receive the treatment. I truly think that I should have done this much earlier in my life.
