We can use Custom Bladeless LASIK technology to treat
The advanced technology involved in Custom Bladeless LASIK surgery (a femtosecond laser, that is the ZEISS VisuMax®) makes Custom Bladeless LASIK safer than traditional LASIK (by reducing flap complications).
Custom Bladeless LASIK delivers more precise results and therefore better visual outcomes than traditional LASIK. We can correct nearsightedness, for example, to a higher degree with Custom Bladeless LASIK because we can create a thinner corneal flap.
Patients also tend to feel more comfortable during this procedure knowing that it doesn’t involve any blades. With Custom Bladeless LASIK surgery, we can customize the flap size and other variables for a more personalized approach to vision care that addresses your unique needs.
Overall, Custom Bladeless LASIK has very high success rates. People who may not have been candidates for traditional LASIK, perhaps because of particularly severe refractive errors, may now be candidates for Custom Bladeless LASIK instead.
Our mission is simple: the best vision care for every patient. Led by Dr. Kranemann, we perform cutting-edge bladeless custom LASIK to patients impacted by vision problems. While traditional LASIK has been a standard care, we are going above and beyond to introduce highly sophisticated and advanced laser eye surgery.
Clearview Vision Institute is a pioneer in custom LASIK surgery. We use corneal mapping to get a full picture of the treatment area, which our highly trained surgeons use as a guide to create the corneal flap. This increased precision allows us to identify and treat even the smallest refractive errors, called higher order aberrations. The result is a LASIK operation tailored to your exact vision needs — to high success rates.
Are you considering bladeless LASIK? Enjoy these unmatched vision care benefits:
At Clearview Vision Institute, we make these benefits possible thanks to our team of vision care specialists. Led by Dr. Kranemann, we have been pioneering cutting-edge custom or bladeless LASIK and other laser eye surgery procedures in Canada.
Dr. Kranemann brings years of recognition from renowned academic institutions and medical associations like the University of Toronto, The Royal Manchester Eye Hospital, and both the American and European Congress Societies of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
When it comes to protecting and restoring your eyesight — the most valuable of the five senses — you will want only the best eye surgeon, cutting-edge procedures, and state-of-the-art equipment. Combined with the warm and welcoming environment at our clinic, our patients are happy to report highly successful LASIK procedures, healthy eyesight that lasts, and quality of life they never knew was possible.
Yes. With the newest femtosecond LASIK technology, the laser creates a thin, precise uniform flap following the contour of your cornea and it better adheres to the cornea when placed back. There is also less risk of flap complications compared to Blade LASIK
Anesthesia is given for your comfort during the procedure. It is not usually painful
With Bladeless LASIK, the surgeon creates a hinged flap using the a laser, lifts the flap, uses another laser to reshape the cornea, then the flap is placed back onto the corneal bed. The reshaping of the cornea is precisely designed to help you see better without corrective lenses
Speed and comfort are the primary benefits of traditional blade LASIK, however there is a higher risk of flap-related complications, whereas with bladeless LASIK, the risk of flap complications are much reduced. There is also greater precision with bladeless LASIK
They are donated for eyecare missions, where eyecare professionals volunteer in communities that do not have direct access to eyecare. The donated glasses are cleaned, measured and sorted. Some of the people in these communities cannot see without glasses, and your glasses may be a close enough match to their prescription that can postively change their lives
Rarely does myopia return after LASIK surgery
Your vision may change if there are other eye conditions unrelated to the cornea and unrelated to LASIK that develop over time. It is important after LASIK to have regular eye examinations every 1 to 2 years to ensure that the eye is healthy
The majority of patients are not depending on corrective lenses after surgery, or they become much less dependent. Final surgical outcomes depend on the tissue response and how you heal
LASIK is a permanent surgical vision correction procedure. Retreatments are possible if the eye changes, which is uncommon
Yes. Many patients consider getting Presbyond/Laser Blended Vision, which addresses near, intermediate and far visual needs. Some patients wish to have their distance vision corrected so that they can enjoy their active lifestyles with better distance vision and do not mind wearing reading glasses
Most patients will not need any additional LASIK surgery in the decades to come. Only one to two percent of people may benefit from a touchup
No, patients do not usually need touch ups unless their vision has changed and if a thorough evaluation has determined that a touchup will improve the vision
Dear Dr. Kranemann, Many thanks in the nice, smooth and trouble free cataract surgery you carried out on both my eyes at Clearview Institute. I would like also to extend my thanks to all the staff of clearview. They are efficient, kind hearted and very helpful.
Dr. Kranemann is exceptionally intelligent and experienced. He is passionate about achieving perfect results for his patients, and proved it by correcting my father’s vision perfectly. We are very happy and grateful and highly recommend Dr. Kranemann.
Had the new vision correction procedure SMILE. WOW is all I can say. Life without glasses is amazing. Great surgeon and medical staff. Will refer his expertise on to family and friends.
