Enjoy Clearer Vision Without the Need for Glasses

If you have a refractive error, glasses or contact lenses are a necessity in your life. However, these corrective lenses aren’t your only option for clear vision. With laser eye surgery, you can experience improved vision.

At Maple Ridge Eye Care, we are proud to offer laser eye surgery consultations. We can assess your unique visual needs, medical history, and eligibility before referring you to a surgeon who can perform your surgery.

What Is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery is a way to improve your vision and reduce your reliance on glasses or contact lenses. Your surgeon can correct common refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. There are many kinds of laser eye surgery available today.

Depending on your needs and medical history, we can refer you to a surgeon who can perform your surgery. After completing an assessment and having a discussion, we can recommend a suitable surgery, such as SmartSurfACE Laser Procedure (SLP) or topography-guided PRK.

SmartSurfACE Laser Procedure (SLP)

SmartSurfACE Laser Procedure (SLP)  is an advancement of the traditional LASIK procedure. It involves using a 7 directional optimal movement tracking system and is a completely touch-less procedure. 

With no cutting during this procedure, there is higher safety compared to LASIK and   typically faster visual recovery compared to traditional PRK. 

Topography-Guided PRK

Similar to LASIK, topography-guided photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) involves the creation of a 3D map of the surface curvature of the cornea. This mapping helps the surgeon with the planning of your surgery. 

During PRK, your surgeon removes the outer layer of cells on the cornea, called the epithelium. Afterwards, they use a guided laser to reshape the cornea. You then receive a contact lens bandage to protect your eye throughout the healing process.

We Are Here Throughout Your Process

While laser eye surgery has high levels of success, these results are never guaranteed. You may not receive perfect vision, but you can likely rely less on your glasses or contact lenses. 

We are not the ones performing your surgery, but you can expect us to be present throughout your pre-and post-surgery process. We can discuss the best possible surgery for your eyes and lifestyle during an initial consultation. After your surgery is complete, we will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure you heal well and manage any side effects you may experience. 

Book an appointment and see if laser eye surgery is right for you.
