Laser Eye Care

Your eyes are quite simply unique: through them, you see the world. How well are you seeing? Maybe in the course of the natural aging process, you’ve developed vision problems. Or perhaps you have spent a whole lifetime wearing glasses or contact lenses. While there are now a plethora of fashionable options, and the old witticism about “girls who wear glasses” no longer is the case if it ever was, many people who need corrective lenses feel restricted in some way. If you have ever had to grope for your glasses on the bedside table just to see to get a drink of water, or struggled to insert a contact lens that was becoming drier by the second, you know what we mean!

At the UELC clinic we are proud to be able to offer a full range of laser eye care options including LASIK and PRK. Our highly skilled surgeons, advanced technology and superior facility in the GTA all contribute to the UELC clinic being the number one option for your laser eye care. Our goal is to offer you an exceptional eye care experience.

Of course, no two eyes are created equal. That’s why your examination and consultation at UELC clinic will be a comprehensive one, to determine what type of surgical procedure is best for you. Once we have determined the most effective and efficient option that will completely correct your vision, we will educate you on our leading-edge laser eye care procedures so you know exactly what to expect before, during and after the surgery, and beyond. The outcome for our delighted clients is dramatically improved (if not perfect, or better than perfect 20/20) vision.

Let’s touch on some of the most popular types of laser eye care offered here at the UELC clinic:

  • LASIK: this is a refractive surgery procedure that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.
  • PRK (photorefractive keratectomy): this method is suitable for patients who do not qualify for LASIK because their corneas may be too thin (some people with a very high prescription may fall into this category)
  • LASEK (laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy): another method for patients whose cornea is too thin to endure LASIK surgery.

Laser vision correction procedures are one of the most frequently performed elective surgeries in Canada for a reason: these stunningly effective yet routine procedures give patients the life-changing opportunity to be free of glasses and contacts for good. Depending on the type of surgery, the laser eye care recovery time is startlingly short and simple. You can be back to your normal work duties within days, with your greatest problem being hunting around for the glasses you have forgotten you no longer need!
