Eye Q Premium Laser Serving Patients from Edmonton and Calgary
Eye Q Premium Laser is a state-of-the-art laser eye surgery facility in Edmonton, Alberta. Located west of downtown, the center is home to two leading-edge operating theatres as well as diagnostic and exam rooms.
Eye Q Premium Laser features the latest laser technologies available for laser eye surgery. When performing LASIK, Dr. Leong-Sit uses a method called IntraLASIK, or iLASIK, which involves the use of two separate lasers: the IntraLase femtosecond laser, which is utilized to create a corneal flap, and the VISX Star S4 IR Excimer laser system, which alters the shape of the underlying cornea to provide clear vision. IntraLase allows patients to undergo LASIK without the use of a blade. The VISX Star S4 IR Excimer laser system is a complex laser platform and the center point of the Advanced CustomVue system. This system contains several components, including a mapping feature that provides Dr. Leong-Sit with a precise map of the cornea, as well as VISX Iris Registration, which keeps the laser centered during surgery, even as the eye moves. The VISX CustomVue system allows Dr. Leong-Sit and his team to customize the LASIK procedure to each patient.
In addition to custom LASIK, Dr. Leong-Sit offers refractive lens exchange and advanced cataract surgery with premium intraocular implants. These sophisticated procedures involve the removal of the eye's lens, which is then replaced with an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Dr. Leong-Sit's extensive experience with these procedures has allowed him to provide clear vision to numerous Calgary patients in need of new lenses.
