Everybody wants to see well but not everybody can have LASIK. Implantable collamer lenses(ICL) may be your solution, whether you have thin corneas or extreme myopia or astigmatism. Visian ICLs may be your best solution.
Abbotsford, BC A new era in cataract surgery began last Wednesday, February 13, as the first all laser cataract surgery - LenSx® was performed in the state-of-the-art surgical center: Valley Laser Eye Centre.

Patients with keratoconus present enormous challenges to optometrists and ophthalmologists. Traditionally patients with progressive keratoconus have required penetrating keratoplasty to rehabilitate their visual function. Unfortunately penetrating keratoplasty has at least a five percent failure rate and even successful grafts may fail over time.
The combination of simultaneous, sequential LASIK and/or PRK, with corneal cross linking is referred to as LASIK Xtra or PRK Xtra. This revolutionary new approach to refractive surgery has become available due to accelerated cross linking. We have purchased the Avedro KXL accelerated cross linker so that we can provide this advanced technology to our patients.
Dry eye and its association with LASIK, is a topic that recurrently finds its way into the mainstream media. Global TV recently broadcasted an expose that centered around the tragic suicide of a LASIK patient in the United States who suffered from severe symptoms of dry eye following routine LASIK. Global TV arranged for mystery shoppers to assess various laser eye centres in Ontario, and their research found that most of these centres did not discuss dry eye, or failed to mention it as a significant potential complication of LASIK.
