LASIK Surgery

Book Appointment

A refractive surgical technique used to correct hyperopia, myopia and astigmatism, LASIK is done by Ophthalmologists employing a laser. For many patients needing help with their vision, LASIK is considered a positive alternative to wearing contact lenses or corrective eyewear.

Patients need to go through several steps during the pre-operative period in order to be adequately prepared. During the procedure, a thin flap of the eye is created and folded, allowing for the tissue underneath to be remodeled via a laser. The surgeon repositions the flap and the eye is given time to heal post-procedure. Call Orillia Optometry today to speak with an eye doctor for a LASIK referral consultation.
