Do you have these common complaints?

  • "My glasses steam up or streak when it's raining."
  • "It's a bother dealing with contact lenses every day and it's expensive."
  • "I look better and younger without my glasses."
  • "I would like to play sports without worrying about my glasses or contact lenses."
  • "I cannot see anything when I'm swimming."
  • "Contact lenses make my eyes red and irritated."
  • "In the morning, I have to search for my glasses before I can see."

FV Hospital Laser Eye Centre, equipped with the latest advances in laser technology, can help you reduce, or eliminate, your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Laser vision correction is a pain-free procedure that takes only 15 minutes and is less than 60 seconds of laser time in most cases. Never before has laser vision correction been so safe and precise, so why wait?

Common vision problems

Our eyes are delicate and complex organs that provide vision for the daily activities of living and for enjoying life’s beauty. Normal vision, sometimes referred to as 20/20, is the ability to see clearly without the need for prescription glasses or contact lenses. Here are some common vision problems (called refractive errors):


NEARSIGHTEDNESS (myopia): occurs when the cornea is too curved or the eye is too long. This causes light to focus on the front of the retina, resulting in blurred distance vision.

FARSIGHTEDNESS (hyperopia): occurs when the cornea is too flat in relation to the length of the eye. This causes light to focus at a point beyond the retina, resulting in blurred close vision.

ASTIGMATISM: occurs when the cornea is more curved in one direction than the other, often occurring with nearsightedness and farsightedness. This causes light to focus in more than one point on the retina, resulting in blurred and distorted vision.

PRESBYOPIA: occurs when age-related hardening of the lens develops inside the eye (usually after the age of 40) causing the eye to lose its ability to focus close up. This occurs separately from other refractive errors and can lead to the need for separate reading glasses or bifocal glasses for near work.

Am I a good candidate for LASIK surgery?

Yes, if your eyes and general health are normal, you are 18 years or older and your glasses/contact lens prescription has been stable for the past 18 to 24 months, you may well be a good candidate for LASIK surgery. The best way to find out is to contact us here.

Modern vision correction procedures

One of the most popular ways to correct vision is with a procedure called LASIK (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis) which uses a laser to change the cornea curvature. LASIK has quickly become the choice for most patients because the procedure is fast, painless and the recovery is quick with fewer side effects and complications compared to other methods of vision correction. In most cases, the procedure takes only 15 minutes requiring less than 60 seconds of laser time for each eye. Moreover, most LASIK patients notice a significant improvement in their vision immediately after surgery.

If your condition is not suitable for LASIK surgery, you may qualify for other types of laser eye surgery. PRK is surface ablation with the laser, without creating a corneal flap, which is used for people with corneas too thin for a LASIK flap. Your prescription and eye structure will be considered to determine which procedure is best for you.

Innovative presbyopia treatment options now available at the FVH Laser Eye Centre include laser multifocal treatment for presbyopia, implantation of multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOL), and bioptic treatment (a combination of laser and IOL).

What does LASIK surgery entail?

Prior to laser refractive surgery, your FVH Ophthalmologist will conduct comprehensive eye tests to determine the health and condition of your eyes and their suitability for laser surgery.

Your surgeon will then thoroughly discuss the results with you and treatment options.

You will need to stop wearing contact lenses prior to the eye examination (four days for soft lenses and two weeks for hard lenses) to ensure accurate assessment.

On the day of the procedure, you will need to arrive at the FVH Laser Eye Centre about an hour prior to your procedure to check in and prepare for surgery.

Prior to surgery, the area around your eyes will be cleaned and eye drops used to numb your eyes; no injections or needles are used. During the surgery, you may feel a little pressure, but no pain. You will be asked to look directly at a target light while the laser reshapes your cornea. The laser treatment will be completed in less than a minute, depending on the amount of correction needed.

Following your procedure, you will rest in our comfortable recovery area with your eyes closed for 15 minutes. You will then be given additional eye drops to use and a pair of protective glasses to wear for one week.

Your vision will not be the sharpest at first, so someone will need to drive you home. The FV staff will give you clear instructions for post-operative care, which includes eye drops and determining which activities are possible.
