Are you tired of wearing your glasses?
With the latest advances in the eye care field, there are several surgical options for gaining freedom from glasses. During our consults, we perform baseline testing to ensure eye health and rule of conditions that may affect your candidacy for surgery. Not all patients are good candidates for LASIK so it is crucial to get a consultation to discuss your options. With options such as LASIK, PRK, and refractive lens exchange, it is important to understand your goals post-surgery to optimize your vision and manage your vision needs. At the consult, we not only check your eyeglasses prescription but also check the health of the eye. Conditions such as keratoconus, retinal diseases, and others are contraindicated for refractive procedures. This makes it crucial to get an assessment prior to the surgery.

We also co-manage with LASIK centres so we can help address your questions and ensure a better experience pre- and post-surgery for our patients.
