  • Successful LASIK surgeons get that way from experience and the ability to screen out poor candidates for the procedure. Here’s the list of what makes you a good candidate.
  • An alternative to LASIK, PPK is a no-flpa eye surgery. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages, as well as what to expect.

Dear Valued Patients, 

As per the advice of the Ministry of Health; due to close patient interaction during our exams and fittings our Clinic will continue to ask patients to wear surgical masks upon entry to our office. We have taken extensive measures to keep our team and patients safe including improved air filtration systems.

We ask that if you or someone you live with has been ill in the last 10 days, traveled outside of Canada in the last 14 days or have been diagnosed or exposed to Covid 19 in the last 10 days or if you or anyone in your household is waiting for the results of a Covid 19 test that you refrain from entering our practice or booking an appointment at this time.

Thank you for understanding.

Be safe, be well.
