Conventional LASIK Surgery – King LASIK

LASIK (laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis) is today’s most popular surgical procedure for correcting vision problems caused by refractive error, the failure of the eye to properly focus light. At our LASIK Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Alberta and Victoria centres throughout Canada, we help patients eliminate or dramatically reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses by treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After LASIK, the majority of patients who are treated for mild to moderate refractive error achieve vision good enough to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses for most activities.

How LASIK Works

If the cornea is misshapen, too flat, or too steep, light doesn’t focus properly, causing poor vision.

The goal of LASIK is to reshape the cornea, the front part of the eye that helps focus light on the retina. The retina is the tissue that lines the back of the eye – Once it receives an image the retina transmits it to the brain via electrical impulses carried by the optic nerve. When all parts of the eye work properly, a person experiences 20/20 vision, or normal visual acuity.

The LASIK Procedure

Using our advanced technology, the surgeons at King LASIK, formerly Clearly LASIK, can change the shape of the cornea to shift the eye’s focal point, or, in the case of astigmatism, to create a single focal point, so that the retina receives an accurate image.
