Question quotation

Is LASIK for me?

Who can benefit from LASIK?

Both nearsighted and farsighted people can benefit from the LASIK procedure. With nearsighted people, the goal is to flatten the too-steep cornea; with farsighted people, a steeper cornea is desired. Excimer lasers also can correct astigmatism by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal shape..

How do I know if LASIK will help my vision?

We will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals to help determine if you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK, PRK or Cataract Refractive Technology. If you have appropriate goals and there are no contraindications for the procedure, we will recommend a pre-operative evaluation to determine suitability for refractive surgery. This evaluation includes:

  • Counseling on refractive surgery options
  • Eye dominancy testing in London, Ontario
  • Review of eye history and refractive stability
  • Medical evaluation of the cornea and eye
  • Current Refraction Status

Can dry eye syndrome be cured?

Symptoms of dry eyes include redness, scratchiness, itching, a sensation that something gritty is stuck in your eye, excessive watering and the need to keep rubbing your eyes. While there is no cure for dry eyes, our goal is to bring you lasting relief. Additionally, if you are considering LASIK, dry eyes may prevent you from being a good candidate for this refractive surgery.
