What conditions does LASIK Xtra ® address?
LASIK Xtra ®’s strengthening may be applicable to all current LASIK patients, as well as post-LASIK patients who suffer from corneal ectasia or who are interested in restoring the strength to their cornea.
How do you know if LASIK Xtra ® is right for you?
If you’re suitable for LASIK, then you’re likely suitable for LASIK Xtra ®. Your surgeon will assess your pre operative tests and confirm whether this corneal strengthening procedure would be a benefit to add to your personalized treatment plan.

It’s difficult to find helpful and straight forward information online about laser eye surgery. Our goal as a clinic is to myth bust and help you find the right treatment for you (even if it’s not at our clinic).
After the surgery
After we make the refractive correction in a LASIK procedure, we add a proprietary riboflavin 1 formulation to the exposed stroma and then replace the flap.
We then apply UVA (ultraviolet) illumination through the intact epithelium 2 for little over a minute. LASIK Xtra ® poses no material interruption to the normal speed and flow of the LASIK procedure and does not increase patient discomfort. According to Avedro Inc., the company behind LASIK Xtra ®, eye surgeons have successfully applied the procedure 80,000 times around the world.
Only two providers in the Toronto area offer LASIK Xtra ® and we are one. The technology is not yet available in the US.
