Investing in Yourself
Eye Surgery Cost Toronto
If you suffer from vision problems, you understand the frustration and impact they can have on your life. Laser Eye Surgery is an advanced option in vision correction that is safe, and can produce long-lasting results. LASIK eye surgery reshapes the cornea itself rather than correcting problems with contact lenses or glasses. In fact, LASIK has helped many to eliminate the need for corrective eye wear altogether.
Laser Eye Surgery can be used to treat hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism. LASIK cost is dependent upon a variety of factors, including the severity and type of vision impairment. Depending upon your unique needs, the team at the TLC Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye Centre can help you determine your Laser eye surgery cost. Contact our offices for more information, or to schedule a consultation.
What Affects Laser Eye Surgery Cost?
Since its introduction, advancements in Laser Eye Surgery have created a safer, faster, less invasive treatment that can help more patients. Patients now have a wide variety of LASIK options to choose from, each with distinct costs. Factors that affect a patient's LASIK cost include:
- The location of the practice, and the doctor the patient chooses to perform LASIK. Patients should select a doctor who has a proven track record of successful LASIK procedures.
- The type of LASIK performed is the most significant factor in the cost of the treatment. Traditional LASIK uses a microkeratome blade to make the corneal flap, as well as basic vision analysis to create the laser reshaping of the cornea. Our team of TLC surgeons perform bladeless LASIK, which creates a corneal flap with a femtosecond laser that is more precise than a blade, and requires a shorter healing time. He also performs custom LASIK surgery, which uses Wavefront imaging to create a topographical map of the eye. This treatment, which costs more than traditional LASIK, allows the surgeons to further refine the LASIK procedure to correct higher-order aberrations like halos and glare, in addition to nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
- Treating one or both eyes can affect the overall cost of LASIK.
