We know the decision to have LASIK surgery is a big one, so we go the distance and offer the latest technologies that are the best for our patients. That’s why we offer blade-free LASIK treatment using the IntraLase Method.

Blade-free IntraLASIK using the IntraLase Method offers incomparable safety and optimal precision. This procedure is fully automated and laser-controlled. If you are seeking LASIK in Boston please call us for an explanation of the technology. Dr. Talamo was the first physician in the Boston area to perform ALL-LASER LASIK and has enjoyed spectacular outcomes using this technology.


Traditional LASIK involves manually creating a corneal flap with the surgeon utilizing a microkeratome, a hand-held oscillating device historically used to create the flap.

The IntraLase method utilizes pulses of laser light to create your corneal flap. When your LASIK treatment is complete, the flap is securely repositioned into place. This bladeless, computer-guided technology is 100% more accurate than most of the mechanical microkeratomes.


The IntraLase Method has been used successfully on millions of eyes worldwide and we trust this advanced technology to deliver exceptional results. Our commitment to provide you with the ultimate in comfort, safety, and outstanding vision is evidenced by our utilization of the IntraLase. LASIK with IntraLase offers our patients the most advanced technology available.


In a survey of clinical practices, the vision in the IntraLase-treated eye was preferred up to 3 to 1 by patients over the vision in the mechanical blade–treated eye (among those who stated a preference).


In a clinical study comparing the IntraLase laser to the leading microkeratome, more patients achieved 20/20 vision or better in standard and custom LASIK surgery when the IntraLase method was used to create the corneal flap.


Unlike mechanical instruments, IntraLase technology is uniquely able to program the dimensions of your flap based on what’s best for your eye. Then the IntraLase laser creates your flap from below the surface of the cornea—without ever cutting it. How?

  1. Ultra–fast pulses of laser light position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth determined by your doctor.
  2. The laser light passes harmlessly through your cornea. Then the laser creates rows of these bubbles just beneath your corneal surface as it moves back and forth across your eye in a uniform plane.
  3. Next, the IntraLase laser stacks bubbles around your corneal diameter to create the edges of your flap. These bubbles are stacked at an angle that is determined by your doctor and is individualized to the way your eye is shaped.
  4. The process takes only about 20 seconds from start to finish.
  5. Your doctor then gently lifts the flap to allow for the second step of your LASIK treatment. The second phase of your treatment is now being provided by the ALLEGRETTO WAVE Eye-Q laser and is referred to as OptiLASIK as it offers optimum results. When treatment is complete, the flap easily seals back into position without stitches and rapidly begins to heal.

Because of the superior accuracy of the IntraLase method, certain patients who were ineligible for LASIK may now be able to have treatment. Ask Dr. Talamo if you are a candidate. If you are seeking LASIK in Boston now is the perfect time to consider this laser eye surgery!
