Toronto Patient Testimonials
Canadian Musician & Songwriter
PRK – With PRK, the excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea and correct vision. The vision improvements are equally impressive as with LASIK, but healing time tends to be longer. Variations in the eye’s anatomy determine whether your procedure should be LASIK or PRK.
Cataract Eye Surgery
TRADITIONAL CATARACT SURGERY – Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in Canada. Consequently, cataract surgery is one of the most common procedures. Traditional cataract surgery in Toronto is complex, but safe and extremely effective.
Other Eye Care Services and Procedures
IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS – ICL is similar to a refractive lens exchange in that an artificial lens is implanted in the eye. However, with an ICL, the patient’s crystalline lens is not removed but an intraocular lens is implanted just in front of the natural lens. This procedure is ideal for highly nearsighted patients.
KERATOCONUS – Keratoconus is a disease of the cornea, the clear outer layer of the eye. We established the first keratoconus clinic in Canada in 2008, using the latest technology to help patients restore lost vision. Treatment starts with detailed diagnostic imaging that measures more than 20,000 data points of the cornea.
DRY EYE CLINIC – The Bochner Eye Institute has established a comprehensive Dry Eye Clinic in Toronto – one of the first of its kind in Canada – to identify and offer customised plans to treat the underlying causes of dry eye.
