1801 vs. 2005

Conventional LASIK is based on the optics of lenses. The science dates back to 1801 as you can see below.

  • Roger Bacon, describes reading glasses, in 1276.
  • Benjamin Franklin invented the bifocal lens, in the 1700’s.
  • Thomas Young, discovered astigmatism in his own eye in 1801.

Many centers use different names for conventional LASIK, as a marketing ploy, adding more confusion to the public information. Here, the myths are clarified:

“Every thing else is conventional LASIK not iLASIK”

Many centers call conventional LASIK:

  • Flying spot technology
  • Scanning spot technology
  • Wavefront optimized

But it is not iLASIK. iLASIK utilizes modern optics from 2005, Fourier algorithms to calculate the ideal treatment that is specific for the patient.
