More About Vision Correction at Cliniques Michel Pop
Prior to beginning treatment, Dr. Pop uses wavefront technology to take an inventory of the eye’s visual problems. This technology enables him to obtain a map of the eye’s subtle refractive errors, so he can adjust the appropriate settings on the surgical laser that reshapes the corneal tissue.
To begin the LASIK procedure, Dr. Pop creates a corneal flap using either a microkeratome blade or a laser (the latter during all-laser LASIK). The exact method that is employed depends on the specific patient and his or her unique needs. After creating the corneal flap and carefully folding it back, Dr. Pop applies the energy of an excimer laser to the underlying corneal tissue. He ablates microscopic bits of corneal tissue in order to reshape it and eliminate the eye’s refractive error. When Dr. Pop is satisfied with the newly shaped cornea, he gently restores the corneal flap to its original position over the eye, where it seals itself.
Dr. Pop’s LASIK Gatineau patients typically experience improvement in their vision within one to two days of treatment. Results vary by patient, but many are able to achieve 20/20 vision or better. Dr. Pop has received a 99 percent satisfaction rating from his patients.
What Do Patients Say About Dr. Pop?
"My IntraLase Wavefront surgery by Dr. Pop was a success. Everyone in the clinic was warm, helpful, and knowledgeable. From the time I entered the operating room till I left the clinic, I was constantly updated on what was going to happen next; which made it a very reassuring and good experience. Thank you, Dr. Pop and all your staff."
"I had IntraLase in both eyes three months ago and it went great! The staff was great and very helpful, especially the blonde nurse in the operating room … I think her name was Sonia!! She explained every step to me as Dr. Pop was operating and even put her hand on my shoulders to reassure me during the surgery … I recommend Dr. Pop and his nurse any day!"
"Very professional. Surgery went well. Excellent follow-up process. Clear explanations every time."
