See Freely & Clearly Without Glasses or Contacts

If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you may have considered laser eye surgery at some point. After all, a life without lenses can be pretty appealing. Thousands of Canadians have relied on these simple surgical procedures to improve their vision. 

There are many types of vision correction surgery, so how can you know what’s best for you? At IndividualEyes, we offer comprehensive laser eye surgery consultations so we can help you make an informed decision. Give us a call today and book your appointment.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Eye Surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, laser eye surgery comes with certain risks. And, occasionally, these risks can outweigh the benefits. But that’s why we recommend a consultation. Our experienced team will assess your eye health, determine your prescription, and provide you with a personalized recommendation before you make the commitment to surgery. 

Here are some of the things we consider when looking at your candidacy for laser eye surgery:

  • That you’re at least 18 years old
  • That your eyeglass or contact lens prescription has remained stable over the last 2 to 3 years
  • That you have no history of or current corneal diseases
  • That you have no significant medical or eye problems
  • That you suffer from no significant dry eye symptoms
  • That you’re not currently pregnant or nursing

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

There are several types of laser eye surgery. At IndividualEyes, we’re happy to offer consultations for LASIK and PRK, 2 of the most common and popular procedures in Canada.

PRK

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) surgery corrects your vision by reshaping your cornea. Your surgeon removes the top layer of your cornea (epithelium) using a brush, blade, laser, or alcohol solution. Then a specially programmed laser removes just enough of the underlying tissue to correct your vision.

Your vision will still be blurry after the surgery, but your vision will gradually improve as your eyes heal over the next 3 to 5 days. You may be given special eye drops you’ll have to use over the next month, and you’ll be asked to wear sunglasses. However, your surgeon will give you specific instructions and information about aftercare before your surgery.

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is slightly more complicated than PRK. Instead of removing the top layer of tissue, your surgeon will cut a thin, hinged flap in your cornea to expose the underlying tissue. Exact amounts of your corneal tissue are removed using a computer-guided laser to correct your vision. The flap is replaced and left to heal on its own.
You’ll be given eye drops to help with healing after the procedure. Like with PRK, your vision will probably be blurry immediately after your surgery, but your vision will improve as your eyes heal.

See Us for a Consultation Soon

The best way to determine which procedure is best for you is with a consultation. We’ll first discuss your needs, lifestyle, history, and expectations and then go from there. 

Our goal is to make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision. Please call us today to book your consultation. We’re always happy to discuss your options and provide you with genuine guidance.
