The Intralasik Femtosecond laser is fully computer-controlled, with proven results. And is of course operated by a renowned ophthalmologist. The IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment is suitable for virtually everybody. It is suitable for spherical prescriptions between -10 and +4.5 and cylindrical prescriptions between -6 and +6. Do you wish to know whether your eyes are suitable for laser refractive surgery? Then we recommend you to have an extensive laser eye preliminary examination. This will give you certainty and we will tell you everything you need to know.
IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment steps
Step 1 – Extra measurement and conversation with specialist
On the day of surgery, we welcome you in our clinic. Here you get the care and attention which you deserve. To be sure that all your data are correct, we’ll conduct a number of extra eye measurements. You will also have a conversation with the specialist about the treatment.
Step 2 – Anaesthetic
The ophthalmologist or assistant puts anaesthetic eye drops into your eye. This is to make the eye numb. After that, the eye is disinfected with iodine. An eye lid spreader ensures that the eye which is to be treated, is kept open. Meanwhile the other eye is covered.
Step 3 – Making the cornea accessible
The ophthalmologist makes a little flap in the cornea using the Intralasik Femtosecond laser. The flap stays attached on one side. This all takes less than a minute. Each pulse from the laser creates a tiny gas bubble. Thus, the eventual flap is created. The ophthalmologist folds the flap open, like the page of a book. Thus, the underlying corneal tissue becomes accessible to the laser beam.
Step 4 – Laser refractive surgery
The ophthalmologist points out the little fixation light you should look at. The so-called “eye tracker” monitors the eye and follows every movement of your eye. If there is too much movement, the laser beam will be switched off. In a short time the laser removes a minute amount of corneal tissue and ‘grinds’ the cornea to the desired shape. You won’t feel anything of this. The laser refractive surgery will also take less than a minute per eye.
Step 5 – Closing the flap in the cornea
After the laser eye treatment, the ophthalmologist places the flap back again. The flap will be reattached after several minutes of drying time. Stitches are not necessary. The ophthalmologist uses tear drops with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication to accelerate the healing process.
Step 6 – Checkups after the treatment
Directly after the treatment, your eyes are checked. Then you can go home. On the next day, you return for a follow-up check. There is another checkup after 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 1 year.
Suitability – IntraLasik Femtosecond for almost everyone
The IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment is suitable for virtually everybody. It is suitable for spherical prescriptions between -10 and +4.5 and cylindrical prescriptions between -6 and +6. Do you wish to know whether your eyes are suitable for laser refractive surgery? Then we recommend you to have an extensive laser eye preliminary examination. This will give you certainty and we will tell you everything you need to know.
Advantages of the Intralasik Femtosecond method
- Computer-controlled laser refractive surgery
This laser eye treatment is performed using the most advanced, computer-controlled equipment, which helps to prevent complications. In contradiction to other laser eye treatment methods, when using the Intralasik Femtosecond method, the results are predicted in advance. A thinner flap is created and more of the cornea is retained. It is simply better for your eyes.
- Proven results
The results of an IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment are often better than with other methods. It has been proven that more people have 100% vision after this treatment.
- Short recovery process
Your eyes recover very quickly from the IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment. Within two days your eyesight is fully restored.
- Intralase, Femtolasik or IntraLasik Femtosecond?
Let’s get things clear: IntraLasik Femtosecond is sometimes also called Femtolasik, Femtosecond or Intralase. It all comes down to the same treatment method. The little flap is not made with a microsurgical blade, but with a computer-controlled laser.
- Doctors prefer IntraLasik Femtosecond
Worldwide, ophthalmologists prefer the IntraLasik Femtosecond method above other laser refractive surgery methods. Ophthalmologist Rolf Zandbergen introduced this method in The Netherlands. Since then, he has performed more than 30,000 operations, including operations for Vision Ooglaseren.
What are the costs of an IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment?
Vision Ooglaseren does not see itself as a price cutter, but we do like to keep laser refractive surgery affordable. Therefore we charge only € 999 per eye. With a guarantee of high-quality care and personal attention and guidance.

Personalised Treatment: the most personal treatment
Our ophthalmologists and optometrists are huge advocates of the Personalised Treatment.With this treatment your eye’s characteristics are taken into account. Using the data collected from the extensive eye scan, we will setup a treatment plan based on the specific imperfections in your eye.
What is the difference with the IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment?
The IntraLasik Femtosecond method is already one of the safest treatments available. Nevertheless, in many cases we advise you to take the Personalised Treatment as well. With the Personalised Treatment not only your eye strength will be corrected, but all other small imperfections as well. This results in the best vision for you. Subsequently, patients usually gain better eye sight results with the IntraLasik Femtosecond method and the Personalised Treatment together than with the IntraLasik Femtosecond method alone. The Personalised Treatment is also better for people with relatively large eye pupils. Even night blindness can disappear completely or can be prevented.
What are the costs of the Personalised Treatment?
The costs of the Personalised Treatment amount to € 200 per eye, on top of the IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment. That gives you just that extra bit of certainty. Our ophthalmologists can advise the Personalised Treatment on the basis of the results of the extensive preliminary examination.
Good to know: the Personalised Treatment can be performed in combination with both the IntraLasik Femtosecond treatment and the Lasek treatment.
