Lasik Vision Correction


There are many ways by which vision is corrected but LASIK eye surgery has proven to be the most popular and effective. It is a quick and painless procedure that restores vision by reshaping the parts of the eye that filter light and focus vision.

During the LASIK procedure, a flap is created using laser technology on the cornea. Through this epithelial flap, the cornea is reshaped. This reshaping of the cornea improves the way light passes through the eye. Once the reshaping is completed, the flap that was created is placed in its original position to facilitate healing.

What is laser vision

The term “Vision correction surgery” covers several potential procedures that correct errors in visual acuity. There are a few different choices for corrective eye surgery. The chosen procedure can make a difference in your post-surgical vision and one option may be better for you than others. Today, a variety of procedures can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism to cut down your need for glasses or contacts – in most cases, it even eliminates the need for them altogether.

While they provide a great temporary solution to help you see better, there is no denying that glasses, and contact lenses, can be highly inconvenient at times. 

Imagine seeing clearly from the moment you wake up! Just think of how much extra time and hassle you would be removed from your daily routine if you no longer had to worry about glasses or contact lens impeding on your lifestyle anymore.

Better than any visual

With vision correction surgery, no more…

  • Wasting time trying to find where you misplaced your glasses;
  • Remembering to carry  spare lens and cleaning fluid with you when travelling;
  • Smudging makeup on your lenses;
  • Remembering to take out your contacts before showering and going to bed;
  • Headaches from frames that are just a bit too tight;
  • Glasses steaming up when cooking or exercising;
  • Needing glasses for driving;
  • Glasses and contact holding you back from swimming and playing your best with your favourite sports;
  • Early morning mist fogging up your glasses;
  • Fiddling around with delicate contacts when you are in a rush and constantly losing them (it doesn’t help that they are tiny and see-through!)
  • The list goes on!

After corrective eye surgery, most patients enjoy permanently corrected vision, therefore no more repeat visits specialists for changing prescriptions and no more prescription sunglasses (you can finally wear standard sunglasses!). In fact, many of our patients who have had vision correction surgery 15 to 20 years ago often tell us that “getting vision correction surgery was the best thing I ever did!”

Although the cost of the surgery may sound like a lot of money at first, when you actually tally-up all your repeated expenses associated with your contacts and glasses over the years, you will find that corrective eye surgery is by far the cheaper option. Between paying for visits to your optometrist, buying new frames, contact lens and cleaning supplies, the cost of vision correction without vision corrective surgery adds up quickly and most importantly these ongoing costs do not provide a permanent solution!

The ophthalmologist can help you determine which is the best option for you, so please be advised that you are not expected to be familiar with all the information below nor are you expected to decide which procedure to have before having consulted with us.

The information below can help you understand what your options are, so all relevant information will be explained to you.

If you wear contact lenses, make sure not to wear them 1-2 weeks before your screening. During the screening, your doctor will start out by asking you about a series of health questions regarding your medical history, your eye health history, social history and lifestyle, such as alcohol consumption. You will also be asked to provide a complete list of medications and to provide your surgical history.

It only takes 20-30 seconds per eye.
