We understand how important it is to research reviews and testimonials of a laser eye surgery centre before making your selection so feel free to browse our Google reviews and testimonials.
The Most Popular Type Of Laser Eye Surgery In Vancouver
LASIK is the most popular type of laser eye surgery to reduce or eliminate the use of glasses or contact lenses. At BoydVision, we perform custom LASIK as one of our various vision correction procedures.
What is LASIK?
LASIK stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. What that means is that LASIK is a type of laser eye surgery procedure that corrects the refractive error in your vision, i.e. corrects your current prescription.
If you are looking to undergo LASIK, Vancouver and Burnaby are home to many centres offering the procedure but BoydVision offers Custom LASIK as a standard (and at the most affordable prices around).
What is Custom LASIK?
People who undergo standard treatment can find that their quality of vision at night is not good. Custom LASIK procedures do not result in this happening for two reasons. Firstly, we do detailed preoperative testing to gather lots of information on each patient’s eyes. Secondly, Custom LASIK treats a larger part of the cornea with an excimer laser which means corrections beyond your current prescription can be made.
Why Would You Prefer Custom LASIK In Vancouver?
We can’t speak for all of our previous clients but there are some reasons why LASIK can be an appealing option for those looking to improve their vision.
The majority of people who undergo LASIK can return to work the very next day. While some symptoms may be experienced for the week following the surgery, there shouldn’t be a reason why LASIK surgery should affect your normal routine.
Other Types Of Laser Eye Surgery
While LASIK is the most popular option for those wanting to get rid of their glasses, there are many other laser eye surgery procedures we offer in our Vancouver centre. We offer private cataract surgery, custom PRK and laser blended solutions. You can find out more about these laser eye surgery procedures on our procedures page.
