1 INTRODUCTION TO iLASIK TM

2 It’s Time For The iLASIK ™ Procedure Using a unique combination of the most advanced technology, the iLASIK procedure is fast, safe and proven Nearly 290 million people worldwide are good candidates for the iLASIK procedure

3 You’re Part Of “Generation i” Young people who are over 21 and are tired of their glasses and contacts People in their 30s who want better distance vision People over 40 who may be struggling with their near vision The iLASIK TM Procedure is appropriate for a wide range of people:

4 You’re Probably A Candidate You are at least 21 years old You are in good general health You’ve had a stable prescription for at least one year You have no existing eye disease In general, you may be an appropriate candidate if:

5 The iLASIK ™ Procedure Is Proven 1 Approximately 17 million LASIK 2 procedures have been performed to date It’s the most common elective vision procedure in the U.S. 17,000,000

6 Ideal For Your Demanding Lifestyle All branches of the U.S. military and NASA recently approved LASIK based on studies using iLASIK technology

7 The Science Of Vision 1.Light enters the eye through the cornea where it is bent or refracted 2.It then passes through the pupil and into the lens where it is bent or refracted again 3.And then light comes to a point (focuses) on the retina When we look at an object, a complex chain of events must happen to form a clear image:

8 Overcoming Your Refractive Error Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism occur when there’s a problem accurately refracting or bending incoming light The iLASIK ™ procedure corrects this problem by reshaping the cornea so that refracted light focuses more accurately on the retina

9 Your iLASIK ™ Evaluation Before having the iLASIK procedure your physician will perform tests to gauge the health of your eyes and document your personal eye characteristics

10 Your iLASIK ™ Procedure: Step #1 An Individual WaveScan ™ Map The first step in the iLASIK procedure is to create a 3-D map of each eye. This map serves as the individual road map for your iLASIK procedure

11 Your iLASIK ™ Procedure: Step #2 Correcting Your Vision — The IntraLase ™ Corneal Flap Next, your physician creates a thin corneal flap in a process called the IntraLase ™ Method This unique laser is an advantage of the iLASIK procedure Some vision correction procedures use a blade to make this flap

12 Your iLASIK ™ Procedure: Step #2 Correcting Your Vision — Laser Precision When the cornea flap is safely made, a second laser is used to make the correction to the cornea based on the exact specification/measurement of your eye(s).

13 Your iLASIK ™ Procedure: Step #3 Postop And Follow-Up With your laser correction complete, your physician will reposition the corneal flap and your iLASIK procedure is complete. The entire procedure is typically completed in about 20 minutes.

14 Expect Great Results With The iLASIK ™ Procedure With the iLASIK procedure, most people experience 20/20 vision or better, * so go out and enjoy your life. *Results may very. 98% of mild-to-moderately nearsighted patients participating in the Advanced CustomVue™ Clinical Trials could see 20/20 or better one year after treatment.
