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!
