Laser Eye Surgery 101:

Millions of Canadians who require eyeglasses or contact lenses have now turned to laser eye surgery (also known as refractive surgery) as an alternative.

Laser eye surgery is generally considered a safe and relatively pain-free procedure that uses focused laser beams to reshape the curvature of your cornea and eliminate the need for corrective eyewear.

Laser eye surgery has also been proven effective in treating common vision disorders such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and keratoconus.
