Laser Vision Correction

Book Appointment

Seeing Clearly without Glasses or Contact Lenses

Are you tired of wearing your glasses or contacts? Have you wondered if laser vision correction is the right option for you?

Laser vision correction uses a laser to correct for myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. 

The most common types of laser vision correction surgery are LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) and PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

So how does the surgery work? Well, imagine your eye is a camera. LASIK and PRK work by reshaping the front part of your eye, the cornea, so that light entering your eye focuses perfectly on the retina. It’s like adjusting the lens on a camera to capture a super-sharp picture.

Our eye doctors at Perception Eyecare help assess your eyes, talk to you about your vision goals, and decide if LASIK or PRK is the right fit for you.

Once they gather all the info, they’ll discuss the possibilities with you. They’ll explain the pros and cons of LASIK and PRK, answering all your burning questions. It’s like having a friendly chat with an eye expert who wants the best for you.

Book your appointment today with our Stoney Creek Optometrists to see if you are a good candidate for laser vision correction. Our optometrists can assist with referrals for consultations and post-operative care.
