LASIK in Halifax, Nova Scotia – Freedom from Eyeglasses

Most patients who seek LASIK in Halifax desire to achieve freedom from eyeglasses and contact lenses. Often, the talented Halifax LASIK surgeons listed in this directory can help them realize this dream by performing LASIK or another variation of laser eye surgery. Thus, some patients with thin corneas who cannot undergo LASIK might be able to undergo LASEK, PRK or Epi-LASIK surgery. Similarly, patients who desire to avoid any flap-related complications (such as hazy nighttime vision due to uneven flap edges) might choose PRK instead of LASIK. PRK surgery completely eliminates any flap-related complications because this procedure does not require the creation of a corneal flap. Instead, the laser energy is applied on the surface of the eye. The drawback of PRK is that this surgery results in a greater post-surgical discomfort and a somewhat longer recovery time than LASIK.

Non-Laser LASIK Alternatives

While the introduction of LASEK and Epi-LASIK procedures have greatly expanded the range of people who can benefit from laser eye surgery, some patients might nonetheless be precluded from receiving any type of laser vision correction treatment. Some of the major contraindications to any type of laser eye surgery are keratoconus and extreme refractive errors. However, even individuals suffering from these vision problems might be able to realize their dreams of freedom from eyeglasses. Thus, many keratoconus patients are able to achieve greatly enhanced vision through the Intacs corneal inserts procedure, and individuals suffering from extreme myopia and hyperopia might be able to improve their visual acuity through the refractive lens exchange (RLE) or implantable contact lenses procedures. The RLE treatment is similar to cataract surgery in that the patient's natural lenses are replaced with sophisticated lens implants. During the implantable contact lens procedure, the patient's natural lenses are left intact.
