Laser Vision Correction Consultation in Mississauga

Many people find that neither glasses or contact lenses quite fit their lifestyle. Laser eye surgery can potentially offer you both clear vision and freedom from eyewear, allowing you to say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses.

Choosing to undergo laser eye surgery is a big step, so you should do your research before making a decision. To help you determine if laser eye surgery is the right choice for you Queensway Optometric Centre offers consultation appointments.

During Your Consultation and Follow Up Appointments

During your appointment, we will conduct a thorough assessment to determine if you are a candidate based on your ocular health as well as the thickness of your cornea, your prescription, and how stable your vision is. If we determine that you are a suitable candidate, we will go over the limitations of refractive eye surgery and what you can expect. We will also refer you to a laser vision centre that meets our high standards for quality of care.

We will schedule you for follow up appointments with us for after your surgery so we can assess your vision and monitor the healing process, reducing the likelihood of complications. These appointments will take place one day, one week, one month, three months, six months, and one year after your surgery. We recommend yearly comprehensive eye examinations thereafter.

Types of Laser Surgery


LASIK is one of the most popular forms of refractive surgical procedures in the world. It was specifically designed to minimize the likelihood of infection and reduce the amount of recovery time required. During the procedure, the ophthalmologist creates a tiny flap in the outer layers of the cornea, then carefully folds it back to reveal the middle layers.

The ophthalmologist then reshapes the middle corneal layers using a laser to correct the refractive error. Once the cornea has been reshaped, the flap is carefully folded back into place, and the surgery is complete.

LASIK patients typically enjoy clear vision within twenty-four hours of their operation and can expect their vision to fully stabilize within one week.

PRK was the first type of laser eye surgery available. The main difference between PRK and LASIK is that during LASIK the ophthalmologist cuts a thin flap in the corneal tissue and folds it back, allowing access to the underlying layers. During PRK, the outer layer of the cornea (called the epithelium) is removed and the laser is used on the front surface of the cornea to correct the refraction. With PRK, the healing process involves giving the epithelium time to repair itself, a process that takes a few days.

Though LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery, PRK has its advantages. It is particularly well suited for patients with thin corneas, or for individuals that are more likely to suffer serious complications should their flap become dislodged during the healing process.
