LASIK, the most popular form of refractive surgery, is one of the most frequently performed elective procedures in North America. In fact, millions of people worldwide are already enjoying its benefits.
At Woolfson Eye Institute, we perform lots of LASIK, but also offer other vision correction or refractive surgery procedures when indicated.
Rely on our world-renowned surgeons for your LASIK surgery needs
Woolfson Eye Institute’s team of world-renowned surgeons and patient support staff is with you every step of the way from your comprehensive evaluation through to your post-operative visits. Our team sets the standard in patient-centered care to deliver Your Best Vision at Any Age.
Our patients benefit from the Woolfson Difference, which optimally combines surgical skill and experience with the most advanced and proven technologies. Not only are our surgeons and staff the best in the industry, but we are also one of the only LASIK providers offering multiple laser platforms to provide our patients with a truly customized treatment plan. We recognize that one size does not fit all when it comes to something as important as your vision. We have made the investments required both in technology and professional expertise to ensure that we remove any limitations from delivering the best possible results.
We only use the most advanced tools available
Woolfson Eye Institute also utilizes the most advanced diagnostic equipment and tools. This allows us to identify patients who are not ideal candidates for LASIK but would instead benefit from one of our other treatment options such as PRK, ICL (implantable collamer lens) or Refractive IOL (intraocular lens).
What is the average recovery time?
With a busy schedule, including family, work, and other commitments, the amount of time you must allow for recovery is a valid concern for anyone considering laser eye surgery.
We sometimes tell our patients that "LASIK is like magic," which of course is hyperbole, but for most patients, the recovery time following LASIK is minimal.
Patients commonly have the procedure, and then have 20/20 vision and minimal irritation to the eyes the very next day.
What is the cost of LASIK?
Would you choose a brain surgeon or a heart surgeon based on price? We didn’t think so. Your eyes are obviously one of your most important assets. They allow you to experience the world around you. Why on earth would you risk your vision with a bargain-priced eye surgery provider?
While we're sure you’ve seen many advertisements for cheap LASIK surgery, keep in mind that is simply a ploy to get you in the door and to up-sell you on the specific treatment you really need. We are certainly not the cheapest LASIK provider, nor do we want to be. Our mission has always been to provide quality refractive surgery procedures at a reasonable price. Providing the level of service and care that every patient should demand requires a higher fee than the $499 per eye that some LASIK providers (falsely) advertise.
We do not have a one-size-fits-all model because Woolfson Eye Institute strives to provide the most appropriate treatment plan for each person’s vision condition. Sometimes this will involve selecting from a variety of vision correction technologies, which is one of several variables that may contribute to the final cost.
