A Guide to Laser Vision Correction in Toronto

Are you in Toronto or the GTA and considering laser vision correction? Every year, more and more people experience eye-vision problems and are looking for alternatives to wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses. 

With the increasing popularity of laser vision correction, many people with poor eyesight are wondering what it’s all about. Firstly, laser vision correction is a short procedure that is painless and done to both eyes to reshape the cornea.

This procedure is considered an elective surgery and is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser to remove a small amount of tissue from your cornea to reshape your eyes to correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.

Why Should You Get Laser Vision Correction?

If you don’t like wearing glasses or contact lenses every day, getting laser vision correction will eliminate the need to wear them. The main reason why a lot of people don’t like wearing glasses is that it hinders their appearance.

Many eyeglass wearers struggle to find the right frame that suits the shape of their face. Several find it inconvenient to constantly buy prescription glasses and eye contacts over an indefinite amount of time.

At Clearview Vision Institute, our knowledgeable doctors and staff are here to guide you through the laser vision correction journey from start to finish. We offer state-of-the-art procedure suites and personalized vision correction plans. They are tailored to get the results you want and allow you to feel comfortable in our clinic when receiving the procedure.

Our clinic is located at 4100 Yonge Street, Suite 110A, in Toronto. If you’re driving, you can reach our location by taking the 401 to Yonge St and exiting south on Yonge Street. At the first set of lights south of 401, turn right. There are three buildings and our clinic is located in the first building on the left side.

To access our location by public transit, the closest subway station and bus stop is at York Mills station, located on the North East corner of Yonge Street and York Mills. Our clinic is located directly across the street and we recommend taking the underground pathway and following the signs that lead to 4100 Yonge Street.

Benefits of Laser Vision Correction

After patients undergo the procedure, the benefits start almost immediately. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of laser vision correction.

Not only does laser vision correction eliminate the need for wearing eyeglasses and contacts, but your eyesight will be better, and you can reduce your dependency on purchasing glasses and contact lenses.

After the short recovery time, almost every patient sees an improvement in their eyesight. Imagine never having to wake up and have blurry vision. No more squinting to see things from a distance or when reading; you can enjoy improved eyesight indefinitely.

If you are concerned about dealing with discomfort, you have no need to worry. The procedure is usually painless and your ophthalmologist will provide anesthetic drops to numb your eyes beforehand. There is no need for stitches or bandages and the immediate recovery period typically lasts twenty-four hours.

How long after LASIK can I see properly?

While you will see better the day after surgery, your vision may be a bit blurry or hazy immediately afterward. These temporary vision difficulties usually clear up after the first few weeks. However, it can take about 2 – 3 months before your vision fully stabilizes and your eyes completely heal.

What not to do after LASIK?

Avoid pools, hot tubs, saunas, and lakes for at least 3 weeks. Avoid watching TV, reading, or using the computer for the first 24 hours as these activities may strain your eyes. Avoid rubbing your eyes. Avoid eye makeup.

Who cannot have lasik vision correction?

There are a number of factors that doctors must evaluate before they can determine who is an eligible candidate for LASIK. Some doctors deem certain pre-existing conditions contraindications to the procedure and will not perform surgery if you possess them. Other conditions may complicate the laser eye surgery and increase your risk of developing a complication. Patients with these conditions need to consult their doctors in regards to eligibility and expectation levels. Learn more about eligibility.

How much does lasik cost?

As prices may vary, depending on each patient's specific condition(s), the final quote will be established during your free preoperative consultation. The quoted amount includes Standard or Advanced Custom Wavefront LASIK or PRK surgery, as well as all post-operative visits.

Does lasik hurt?

Patients are given a topical anesthetic (eye drops) to numb the eye, so they experience no pain during the procedure. When the surgeon applies the vacuum ring, the patient experiences a sensation of slight pressure just before his or her vision fades away for a few seconds. Neither the precision flap-making instrument - nor the laser cause any pain or discomfort. For several hours after the procedure, many patients describe a mild "foreign body" sensation, such as after opening the eyes while swimming in chlorinated water. Some people feel as though there is a dirty contact lens in their eye. After the first few hours, this uncomfortable feeling usually subsides.

How long will the lasik procedure take?

The whole procedure takes about 10 minutes for two eyes, including creating the flap and performing the laser procedure. The actual laser is used on average less than 20 seconds per eye. Learn more about what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.
