The Lowdown on Laser Surgery

If you’re tired of wearing glasses or desire a long-term solution for your vision needs, laser surgery might be your answer. After a comprehensive eye exam, we can discuss the various options, risks, and potential complications of this procedure. 

If it’s right for you, laser surgery allows you to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

The Foresee Eyecare team can gladly guide you through a laser eye surgery consultation to discover if this treatment is right for you. We work closely with LASIK and PRK surgeons in Toronto and offer post-operative care in our clinic.

What Can Laser Eye Surgery Fix?

Laser eye surgery is a procedure in which a surgeon uses a laser to reshape the front of the eye (cornea) to correct a refractive error. For people with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism, laser surgery might be an appropriate option for vision correction. 

Different kinds of laser surgery exist, including LASIK, PRK, SMILE, and refractive lens exchange. Depending on your needs, we can help determine which would be a great fit for you during your consultation.

Who Is Eligible for Laser Eye Surgery?

There are some things to consider before you embark on the laser eye surgery journey, as not every patient makes a good candidate. During your consultation, we’ll weigh the benefits and risks of laser surgery based on an exam, your eye health history, and your lifestyle.

Stronger candidates for laser surgery generally meet the following criteria:

  • 18 years old or above, ideally over 21, once eyes have stopped growing
  • No change in your prescription for at least a year
  • Eye health is in good standing
  • Sufficiently thick corneas

We’ll assess your particular situation in our consultation, but generally speaking, the following situations may not make laser surgery your best option at this time:

  • Extreme refractive error or an unstable prescription
  • 18 years old or younger
  • Corneas are not thick enough 
  • Existing eye conditions, like keratoconus, glaucoma, severe dry eye, or cataracts
  • Diabetes that is not under control
  • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
