    IntraLASIK in Dallas Safer and More Effective Than Ever

    William Boothe, M.D.
    Dallas, TX

    After a over a decade of swift technological advancement, LASIK (Laser in-situ Keratomileusis) is still used for the same function: to dramatically improve and reduce moderate to high levels of nearsightedness (myopia), astigmatism and farsightedness (hyperopia). Traditional LASIK is simple -- a keratome is used to gently create a flap in the cornea.

    Studies have shown that LASIK causes the least amount of discomfort compared to all other types of refractive surgeries. Patients who have undergone LASIK have also reported an almost immediate improvement in their vision following the LASIK procedure, and most patients say they experience little or no discomfort during or after the procedure.

    IntraLASIK uses a computer-controlled, precision laser to create the flap, making it the most precise vision correction available in the world today. After the flap is lifted, an excimer laser is used to shape the remaining tissue. The flap is then carefully set back into place, forming an occlusive seal by osmopic pressure. Osmopic pressure holds the flap in place and allows it to heal very quickly, without stitches!

    Although Dr. Boothe has performed tens of thousands of LASIK procedures with the unassisted traditional method, there is always the potential for complications, as with any surgery. To eliminate the complications attributed to the original LASIK’s microkeratome, Dr. Boothe insists on offering all of his patients the IntraLASIK procedure.

    IntraLASIK is the only technology available that uses an FDA-approved laser designed specifically for the creation of the corneal flap. The IntraLASIK procedure uses the accuracy and precision of the computer-controlled IntraLase FS laser to create the corneal flap. The corneal flap is lifted to allow Dr. Boothe to use a separate FDA-approved excimer laser to perform the actual vision correction.

    There are some specific advantages to electing the IntraLASIK Procedure:

  • The IntraLase FS eliminates all complications attributed to the mechanical keratome.
  • The computer controlled accuracy of the IntraLase FS creates a precise cornea resection with a greater consistency of flap thickness. Anyone who may have previously been excluded for traditional LASIK may still be a candidate for the IntraLASIK procedure.
  • A minimal amount of pressure is placed on the eye increasing patient comfort and safety.
  • The long wavelength of the IntraLase FS laser creates precision flaps without heating or damaging surrounding tissue.
  • Unlike the keratome, the precision shape of the flap allows it to reseat with a tighter seal.

    About Dr. William A. Boothe

    For nearly twenty years, noted cornea specialist William A. Boothe, M.D., has brought the world into focus with more than 67,000 LASIK laser vision correction procedures. Dr. Boothe has personally performed more VISX CustomVue 3-Dimensional Wavefront Customized laser vision correction procedures than any other surgeon in the world and in 1999, the manufacturer named him VISX Surgeon of the Year. Having performed over 29,000 IntraLASIK procedures, Dr. Boothe also continues to be the busiest IntraLASIK surgeon in the world.

    During his fellowship, Dr. Boothe was one of the first cornea specialists to be trained in vision correction techniques. He was also the first cornea-trained surgeon in the Dallas area to use an FDA-approved Excimer laser for refractive surgery. Dr. Boothe was among the first three surgeons in the Dallas area (and one of the first in the country) to use a microkeratome, the instrument that creates the flap during the initial part of ALK and LASIK surgery. The delicate procedure of precisely lifting the flap is critical to overall success of the surgery.

    This is where his peers recognize Dr. Boothe’s experience and he has taught other surgeons his technique in performing LASIK. Dr. Boothe is Board Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Dr. William Boothe’s love of medicine and passion for advancing technologies combined to make him a pioneer in ophthalmology.

    A native Texan, Dr. Boothe received his undergraduate degree from Rice University with honors and completed his residency at Texas Tech University School of Ophthalmology. He attended the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, before serving an internship at Presbyterian Hospital in Internal Medicine. Dr. Boothe completed a cornea fellowship at Jules Stein Eye Institute (University of California Los Angeles Medical School) where he specialized in refractive surgery.

    Before choosing ophthalmology as his specialty, Dr. Boothe worked as an emergency room physician. He was the director of the Plano Emergency Center, as well as the director of the Angelo Association Emergency Center in San Angelo, Texas. “I wanted to work in an interesting specialty,” Dr. Boothe said. “Ophthalmology certainly qualified, since it is a fast-paced field that is continually evolving.”

    In the early 1990s, Dr. Boothe began performing LASIK laser vision correction surgery, a major breakthrough in the field. In fact, he says, he was the first cornea surgeon in the area to use a laser that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “I insist upon being able to offer my patients the latest advances in the field of laser technology,” Dr. Boothe says. “I research every new device and protocol continually, to ensure I can meet the goal of achieving 20/20 or better vision for every patient.”

    As he adopts new, advanced technologies, Dr. Boothe sets high standards for safety, accuracy and precision. When he decides that a device can perform a procedure according to the strictest standards possible, he works with the device until he is confident it will produce excellent results for patients.
