Refractive Surgery

For the right candidate, laser eye surgery can be a wonderful option. There has been a great number of advances in eye surgery options and we can now correct patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. There are many types of surgical options to alter one's prescription, such as LASIK, PRK, lens-replacement and intraocular lens surgery. Specific testing needs to be done before refractive surgery to minimize risk of surgery. For more information about refractive surgery options, come see one our Optometrists for a consultation. Dr. Cowie and Dr. Hopfauf have extensive experience co-managing with laser centers in Alberta and can often provide most of the post-surgery care.
