What is laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgery is an umbrella term for procedures that use laser technology to correct refractive errors, like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

These life-changing surgeries include LASIK and PRK and can greatly improve a patient’s quality of life by transforming their vision.

Prior to having laser eye surgery, many patients who come to TLC Laser Eye Centres couldn’t imagine waking up in the morning and seeing their alarm clock without glasses.

They’ve never dreamed they’d be able to drive a car, watch a movie, or enjoy sports such as swimming and skiing without glasses or contact lenses. Often since childhood, this dependency on glasses and contacts has shaped their lives, memories, and the way they’ve felt about themselves.

Types of laser eye surgery

We’re proud to offer several types of laser eye surgery.  
In order to determine which laser eye surgery is right for you, we encourage you to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.

LASIK Eye Surgery

This procedure works by reshaping the cornea to treat common refractive errors. Patients typically experience improved vision right after surgery and are back to their normal routines within 24 hours, delivering a high satisfaction rate.

For individuals not eligible for LASIK eye surgery, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is a promising alternative. It differs from LASIK in that the surgeon doesn’t create a corneal flap. As such, this procedure is best suited for patients with thinner corneas.

Monovision LASIK

Monovision LASIK is a specialized form of LASIK eye surgery that is designed to treat presbyopia (up-close reading vision loss). As such, it can reduce or eliminate your dependency on reading glasses.
