If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you may have been tempted to reduce your reliance on these lenses with the help of refractive eye surgery. Why haven’t you followed through? Are you wondering if it’s the right decision for you? Are you worried about the risks?

At Leet Meldrew Eye Care, we provide refractive eye surgery consultations that include a comprehensive eye exam, surgical counselling, and pre and post-operative care. We’ve been co-managing LASIK, PRK, and clear lens exchange (CLE) surgeries for our patients for many years. If you have questions, we have answers.

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a common surgery that corrects refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

During the LASIK procedure, the ophthalmologist creates a small flap in the cornea using either a specialized blade or cutting laser. The flap is lifted out of the way, and a computer-guided laser removes precise amounts of tissue from the inside layers of the cornea.

Photo-refractive keratectomy is another common laser refractive surgery performed in Canada to correct several refractive errors.

During the PRK procedure, the ophthalmologist removes the cornea’s outer layer with a surgical blade or blunt instrument. Tiny, precise tissue amounts are vaporized using a computer-guided laser to reshape the cornea and correct your vision.

CLE replaces your eye’s natural lens with an artificial lens in your required prescription. CLE is traditionally performed during cataract surgery, but it’s becoming more popular for correcting refractive errors in patients who aren’t candidates for laser eye surgery.

During the CLE procedure, your natural lens will either be removed by breaking it up with an ultrasound probe or creating an incision to remove the lens in one piece. Once the lens is removed, the artificial lens is placed in the empty lens capsule.

Refractive Surgery Co-Management

We don’t perform refractive surgeries at Leet Meldrew Eye Care, but we work closely with the ophthalmologist who does perform the procedure. But you’re our patient, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

We will perform your initial surgical consultation at our clinic, and we forward all of our findings to your ophthalmologist. Our optometrists will then manage your postoperative care, including any follow-up examinations and additional assessments you may need. Your healing eyes need regular monitoring to ensure the operation was a success and your vision remains clear and comfortable.

Which Surgery Is Right for You?

The only way to determine which surgery is best for your eyes is through a comprehensive eye exam and surgical consultation. Our team is excited to help you discover the many benefits laser eye surgery can offer you, but we also want you to be aware of the process and maintain realistic expectations.

We’re here to answer any questions you may have. Please call to book your laser eye surgery consultation today!
