LASIK surgery compares more favourably with other elective surgical procedures in terms of generally higher satisfaction rates.
LASIK is a proven treatment to safely and effectively treat:
PRK is LASIK’s predecessor. It’s still used today for patients that do not qualify for LASIK surgery. We offer TransPRK, which is a no-touch, all-laser and gentler version of PRK that offers the same results as LASIK.
PRK is a proven treatment to safely and effectively treat:
If you have to deal with the hassle of corrective lenses, ditching them for perfect eyesight sounds like a dream come true. The best way to achieve that goal is through laser eye surgery. There are a few different laser procedures to choose from, three of the most common being PRK, LASIK, and SMILE. Even if you think your eyes are too difficult to correct with surgery, this may not be the case.
How laser eye surgery works
We can perform this treatment on an outpatient basis. We will completely numb your eyes with anaesthetic drops, so you will not feel a thing. We can also give you a sedative medication to help you relax. The entire procedure takes about 5 to 15 minutes, and the laser treatment itself lasts less than a minute. Surgery is over before you know it.
Step 1 – Creating the flap
The first step of treatment is to create flaps in the cornea that are thin and hinged. The flap is created with a femtosecond laser. This thin flap is folded back to reveal the deeper layers of the corneal tissue.
Step 2 – Reshaping the cornea
Next, an excimer laser delivers pulses of light that precisely remove microscopic amounts of corneal tissue to reshape the cornea’s curvature. After we have reshaped the cornea, we restore the corneal flap to its original position over the eye, where it heals on its own.
