Are You a Candidate for Laser Refractive Eye Surgery?

The “rumour” that LASIK is one of the safest procedures available today is not just a rumour- it’s a fact. However, a big part of the surgery’s success results from ensuring that patients who have the surgery performed are qualified candidates.

Many eye diseases, allergies, and other medical conditions can eliminate someone as a surgical candidate. While this may be frustrating, it is important that only qualified candidates receive the surgery in order to ensure the best possible chance for a positive outcome and short recovery period.

What to Expect From Laser Eye Surgery

During your consultation with the optometrist we can review some of the possible surgical alternatives. While LASIK is the most familiar laser eye surgery, it is merely one of many varieties performed today. Other versions of the surgery may be better suited for certain ocular parameters.

In the weeks prior to surgery we will outline what to expect, precautions to take, things to consider, and so forth. Despite the low rate of refractive surgery related complications, this postoperative assessment helps ensure everything is healing as expected and no issues are developing.

We will provide all the information needed for you to have your procedure safely and with maximum comfort.

Within 1 week of your procedure we will see you back at our office to once again assess your eyes. Despite the low rate of complications among surgery, this postoperative assessment ensures that everything is healthy as expected and no issues are developing.

While rare, the risk of side effects exists. These can include:

  • Temporary discomfort, mild eye pain
  • Blurry vision, double vision
  • Symptoms similar to dry eye
  • Complications associated with the skin flap
  • Eye infection
  • Under or overcorrection – in rare cases, the results may regress as the eye heals differently than expected.

If you experience a resurgence in any of these symptoms after the surgery, please request an appointment to see an optometrist as soon as possible.

A Great Corrective Solution for Most Refractive Errors

The refractive errors that impair our vision – myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism – can be corrected via laser refractive surgery. Commonly referred to as “LASIK”, refractive surgery provides a long-lasting, often permanent vision correction.

If you’re tired of wearing glasses and you don’t want to wear contact lenses, refractive surgery may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Refractive Surgery is Safe & Well Studied

Performed tens of thousands of times every year in Canada, and a sizable multiple of that across the world, refractive surgery is a well-practiced and thoroughly studied procedure. It is one of the safest you can have performed today, with a success rate north of 95%.

Modern surgical techniques have minimized side effects and complications. For the vast majority of patients that receive surgery, the level of discomfort associated is minimal.
