Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

Many Canadians are turning to laser eye surgery to correct their vision and eliminate their dependency on glasses or contact lenses. It is a commonly practiced, safe procedure to correct vision problems such as:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism

Benefits of Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is a relatively quick outpatient procedure with minimum complications. It can have a significant, positive impact on your quality of life and has many advantages, including:

  • Immediate and safe results
  • Relatively painless procedure
  • Quick recovery time
  • Freedom from eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Ability to engage in new activities and career opportunities

While Laser eye surgery is certainly a good option, not everyone is a candidate for the procedure. At Lethbridge Eye Clinic, our optometrists are able to evaluate your candidacy based on a:

  • A comprehensive eye exam
  • A pre-op consultation

Comprehensive Eye Test

During the vision test, one of our qualified optometrists will carefully inspect the interior of your eye to:

  • Determine your prescription
  • Evaluate your eye health
  • Determine your candidacy for corrective laser eye surgery

Pre-Op Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

During this pre-surgery consultation, several other measurements of your eyes will be taken to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. These will include:

  • Wavefront measurements
  • Tear film analysis
  • Dominant eye test
  • Careful eyelid inspection

Our optometrists will also take the time to fully explain the cost of the laser surgery, discuss your expectations for the surgery and its risks and benefits.

You May Not Be Eligible For Laser Eye Surgery If:

  • You are pregnant
  • You are under the age of 18
  • You have uncontrolled or unstable diabetes
  • You suffer from certain autoimmune diseases
  • You have certain eye conditions such as keratoconus or glaucoma

If you are not a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery, our optometrists are dedicated to finding alternative corrective solutions to help you achieve clear and comfortable vision.
