Laser Eye Surgery Consultation in Mississauga, ON

A Step to Visual Freedom

Many people find that neither glasses nor 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

We will conduct a thorough assessment to determine if you are a candidate based on your ocular health during your appointment. We will evaluate 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.

Follow-Up Appointments

We will schedule follow-up appointments with us after your surgery. We need to assess your vision and monitor the healing process, reducing the likelihood of complications. These appointments will take place 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year after your surgery. We recommend yearly comprehensive eye examinations thereafter.

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

Our goal is to prepare you for making laser eye surgery decisions by giving you all the information you need. Although your surgery will be performed by an ophthalmologist, our team at Queensway Optometric Clinic is there to support you throughout the process.

We provide consultation on 2 common and successful types of eye surgeries. We will make sure you are informed and confident before committing to a corrective surgery.

LASIK

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 precisely correct your 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 24 hours of their operation and can expect their vision to fully stabilize within one week.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) was the first type of laser eye surgery available. The major difference between PRK and LASIK is the initial method by which the doctor gains access to the corneal tissue.

During PRK, the outer layer of the cornea (called the epithelium) is removed and a laser is used on the cornea to correct the refraction error. 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 those who are more likely to suffer complications from the flap becoming dislodged during the healing process.
