LASIK Technology

What kind of technology is used?


As part of our mission, LASIK MD is committed to using state-of-the-art technology to offer premium quality care to our patients in all of our various procedures. We make it a top priority to use technology that has been backed by proven results, with long-term studies confirming its accuracy and safety as well as international approval from the widespread ophthalmology community.

As Canada’s only national provider of vision correction procedures, we’ve invested over $50 million in our clinics to make sure our patients are being treated with the most advanced lasers on the market.

Our clinics are outfitted with the latest excimer lasers from Bausch & Lomb, Alcon WaveLight and VISX. Furthermore, our cataract and lens implant procedures employ high-grade technology and the most advanced intraocular lens materials available from industry leaders. We are therefore able to recommend treatment options and technology best suited to each individual’s needs.

For our laser vision correction procedures, we offer Standard and Custom LASIK or PRK, as well as All-Laser LASIK. Custom LASIK enables us to further tailor the procedure to the specific properties of an individual’s eyes. The treatment results in a corneal shape that is closer to the normal curvature of a healthy eye. This leads to better quality outcomes for both day and night vision, especially for patients with high prescriptions, thin corneas and larger-than-average pupils.

For our cataract and lens implant procedures, we tailor treatments based on the patient’s individual needs, using only state-of-the-art cataract removal technology developed by industry leading companies. We use the IOL Master at pre-operative evaluations to measure the power of the natural lens and to provide an accurate, reliable measure.

IOL procedure equipment includes a phacoemulsifier, which is a small instrument that is inserted into a microscopic incision. The lenses employed by our surgeons are of the highest grade: They are designed to filter out harmful ultraviolet sun rays that protect the retina from damage and help prevent age-related macular degeneration. Lenses used by LASIK MD go beyond cataract and lens implant procedures, and can be used to correct presbyopia as well. Such lenses adjust power based on the natural accommodation of the eye’s muscles, thereby improving reading vision. Finally, our Bioptics® procedure can allow those who legally require glasses to drive to let go of them.

Whether it is a pre-operative examination, the eye surgery itself, or post-operative care, our surgeons will use the most sophisticated methods and technology throughout every step of your procedure. Our eye care professionals will explain which technology is best for you.
