BoydVision in Burnaby offers numerous laser eye surgery options, including LASIK, PRK, refractive lens exchange, and multifocal intraocular lenses. Their vision correction centre is one of the few clinics in Canada who can offer so many different options to patients. Dr. Boyd believes in offering the best laser eye surgery option for each individual patient. Burnaby Laser Eye Surgery
Laser refractive surgery is divided into two main categories: LASIK (laser insitu keratomileusis) and PRK (photorefractive kratectomy). Both types of laser eye surgery use the laser in a similar way, and either procedure can be used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. However, the procedure is different. Dr. Boyd uses the wavefront-guided treatment, which can be done with LASIK or PRK; it adds a customized element to the procedure. This allows the laser to eliminate mild distortion in the vision - it's similar to buying a tailor-made garment instead of off-the-rack clothing!
