Vision Correction Procedures
At LASIK MD, we offer a full range of vision correction procedures designed to aid a wide range of eyes.
We are among the few laser vision correction centres that offer such comprehensive care to our patients:
The most common laser vision correction procedure; LASIK surgery consists of creating a flap in the cornea with a microkeratome and using a laser to reshape the underlying cornea.
This is the standard LASIK procedure.
Known simply as Custom LASIK, this procedure allows for customization of the standard LASIK procedure to the eyes of each individual.
This LASIK procedure uses a femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap, instead of a microkeratome. It can be combined with either Standard or Custom LASIK.
The surgeon gently polishes off the surface layer of the cornea and then uses a laser to reshape the cornea in the same way as in the LASIK procedure.
This is the standard PRK procedure.
Custom PRK allows for further customization of the standard PRK procedure to the eyes of each individual.
A laser vision correction procedure that adjusts one eye for near vision and the other eye for distance vision.
Similar to cataract surgery; a multifocal lens implant replaces the current lens of the eye to help patients over 40 with their near vision.
A non-invasive procedure that helps strengthen a keratoconus patient's weakening cornea.
Intraocular lens (IOL) procedures offer a possible alternative for nearsighted and farsighted patients. These procedures can also be used to correct lens opacities, presbyopia and, in certain cases, some astigmatism.
A surgery that replaces a cataract patient’s opaque lens with a clear artificial lens implant.
A multifocal lens implant replaces the current lens of the eye to help patients over 40 with their vision at all distances.
A lens transplant for patients with refractive errors who are not candidates for laser vision correction.
Please note that the vision correction procedure that is best suited for your needs will be determined by our team of eye care professionals during your FREE pre-operative consultation.
