No two eyes are the same. In fact, a person's eyes are as unique as their fingerprints. That's where the Bochner advantage comes in - we provide a precise laser surgery solution designed specifically for your eyes.
Laser eye surgery is the method of using a cool gentle beam to reshape the cornea to eliminate or reduce the need for glasses or contacts.
During your free consultation, you will undergo an initial set of tests which enable our surgeons to identify which type of laser eye surgery is right for you - either LASIK surgery or PRK. We also offer Intraocular techniques for the removal and implantation of new lenses within the eye.

LASIK is the most common form of Laser eye surgery performed at Bochner. Learn how our leading-edge technologies such as the Allegretto Wave and VISX Star S4 can dramatically improve your vision.
Dr. Raymond Stein and the Bochner Eye Institute are the first in Canada to offer Laser Cataract Surgery with Catalys™ Precision Laser System. This blade-free technology is considered by the ophthalmic community to be the most significant advance in cataract surgery since phacoemulsification was introduced more than 50 years ago.
Similar to LASIK, PRK permanently changes the shape of the cornea using advanced laser technologies to improve vision.
PRK is frequently recommended for patient's whose cornea is too thin or if there is a contraindication for LASIK. The long term visual outcomes are similar to LASIK, but the recovery period is longer.
Variations of PRK are referred to as LASEK, Epi-LASIK, ASA.
Keratoconus is a corneal disease that occurs when the normally round dome-shaped cornea (the clear outer area of the eye) progressively thins causing a cone-like bulge to develop. Bochner offers a a new procedure, called Corneal Cross Linking with Riboflavin, to help patients suffering from Keratoconus.
Intraocular techniques are derived from cataract surgery. We offer two intraocular techniques at Bochner: Phakic Intraocular Lenses - often referred to as an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) and Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE).
The Bochner Eye Institute has established a comprehensive Dry Eye Clinic to identify the underlying cause of a dry eye condition and to offer a customized treatment plan. This is one of the first clinics of its kind in North America.
