Laser Eye Surgery Consultations in Georgetown, ON
Which Surgery is Right For You?
There are a number of laser refractive surgeries available today; the most popular procedures are PRK and LASIK.
Although healing after PRK takes longer than LASIK due to the regrowth of the front tissue layer, one major advantage to PRK is the ability to treat patients with thinner corneas.
What to Expect After Laser Eye Surgery
Patients experience the same long-term success regardless of the type of surgery they undergo. Refractive laser eye surgery usually eliminates the need for distance vision correction; however, most patients will require glasses to improve their near vision at some point in the future. This is due to presbyopia, a condition that occurs in everyone as they age and typically begins around the age of 40.
