Are you tired of wearing glasses and contact lenses? If so, laser eye surgery may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Laser eye surgery is a surgery that reshapes the surface of the cornea, correcting common refractive errors that impair vision such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
The procedure is typically painless and recovery time is quick, making it an increasingly popular option for eye refractive correction. For more information, please book an appointment with us today.
During your consultation, we’ll conduct thorough tests to determine if you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery. We’ll consider the strength of your current prescription, your corneal thickness, your pupil size, the quality of your tear film, and more.
If you’re a viable candidate for refractive surgery, we’ll then review the procedure with you in more detail. We’ll also discuss your long-term vision goals and what you can expect after surgery, and review the risks and potential complications associated with each type of surgery. We’ll also determine, based on your eye exam results, which procedure will be right for you.
LASIK is the currently most common type of laser eye surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon creates a small flap in the outer layer of the cornea, which is folded over to reveal the cornea’s inner layers. The surgeon then uses a laser to gently reshape these inner layers, correcting the patient’s vision before repositioning the outer flap.
Usually conducted on patients with thin corneas, PRK is similar to LASIK, but rather than creating a flap, the tissue in the outer layers are removed entirely. Since it takes a few days for these cells to regrow, recovery time is typically longer than for LASIK.
If you decide that laser eye surgery is right for you, we’ll work with your eye surgeon of choice to ensure they have your full medical history record and coordinate your pre and post-operative care.
Within one week of your procedure, we’ll schedule an appointment with you to assess your eye health and vision. Despite the low rate of complications with refractive surgery, our post-operative assessment helps ensure that no issues are developing, and everything is healing as expected.
