TLC Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye Centre
LASIK is a great treatment option to consider for people suffering from refractive errors. It's not, however, an ideal treatment for everyone. Let's take a moment to look at the basic requirements for LASIK candidacy and what treatment options non-candidates can consider.
While there are specific instructions for care after LASIK surgery, it's just as important that patients follow their doctor's instructions for pre-operative care. Doing so will help ensure the best possible recovery experience. Let's look into these matters right now.
We (which of course refers to we here at the Yonge Eglinton LaserEye and Cosmetic Centre in Toronto, Ontario)will be featured on Virgin Radio's website this Wednesday, May 16th. Why, you ask? Because, inquisitive reader, we're offering an exciting promotion: you can get your mitts on one (1) gift certificate worth $500 applicable towards our laser vision correction, skin care treatments (excluding botox or juvederm), or laser hair removal services for a mere $250! Wow! Full details in the massive, tantalizing screenshot below:
As is the custom with Antarctic youth, I spent much of my childhood assigned to guard-duty every other night at the penguin defense watchtower situatedatop the northern gate of my village. The watchtower wasa sort of landlocked crow's nest that provided first warning against an impending penguin attack. Though the long, exhausting nocturnal hours were punctuated only byhowling Antarctic wind, litsputteringly by asemi-circle of whale-oil lamps, and soured always by the possibility of a hoard of fanged penguins in their characteristic spiked hatsleaping over the walls and razing our village to the ground,I could always depend on myguard-shift culminating with a lovingly prepared chunk of spiced glacier awaiting my arrival home, courtesy of Mother. "Bljoorg t'gzlaaar, m! sqaat-ogo-ogo," she would say in Antarctican as she placed the spiced glacier before me. I shall never forget this as long as
Perhaps you noticed that thestirring conclusion of our last blogpost promised an equallystirring follow-up a week later. That you'rechronologically sharp is no secret to me, inquisitive reader, and I'm not attempting to gaslight you into thinking that the difference between January 11th and February 21st is a mere week. Nor do I completelyblame you for your recent foul behaviour, which I've heard includes tearing the sink from your bathroom wall and uppercutting elderly women headfirst into the ceiling, actions which can be nothing else but symptoms of YELC-blog withdrawal. I apologize for the immense delay. I was busy. Writing reports. Meeting with important people in New York, Hong Kong, London, and Berlin. Harvesting Rice Krispie squares from the depths of the Amazon rain forest.

Toronto's premier radio personality?
Yes, inquisitive reader, I nod affirmatively in your general direction because it's as true as the day is long-- our very own Dr. Juliusz Gorecki has added yet another talent to an already impressive arsenal. He recently sat down with DJ Mad Dog of99.9 FM Virgin Radio to do a couple of promotional spots for YELC.
So what do they get up to? Well, they cover Dr. Gorecki's
Wooooooo-o-o-o-o-o! Halloween descends upon Toronto! Ill-intentionedspectres! Shadowy figures! Ghostly cackling! Werewolves punching vampires and so forth! And perhaps most terrifyingly of all, dishonesty in advertising.In one of our previous entries, we warned you about advertisements boasting deceptively low prices for laser eye surgery. We suggested that you ask your LASIK provider the following questions:
- What is included?
- What is not included?
- What kind of technology is used?
- What will I have to pay if enhancement surgery becomes necessary?
- How many follow-up visits will I need to make, and at what cost
Ah, what a fine thing it would be to undergo LASIK surgery, you say as you amble over to your computer with morning coffee in hand, your imperfect eyes nonetheless twinkling with the possibility of improved sight. But then your brow furrows in preparation for fresh research: Just how much does this malarkey cost anyway? You look up the cost per eye. a-Wha-a-a-a-a-at!!! $2500 per eye?! you scream, eyes springing out of their sockets as in cartoons of yore.
Now hold on a minute, inquisitive reader: dont do your eyes further damage with that sort of nonsense. There are reasons why laser eye surgery costs what it does, and we assure you that none of them have the faintest whiff of malarkey.
In terms of pure cost, Im reminded of the time I had to take my dog to the vet for an operation. It cost $2000 in Toronto, which may
