“Wearing glasses or contacts on the golf course has always been a bit of a handicap to me. After my laser procedure, however, I cannot tell you how much my golf game has improved. Thank you, Bochner for the great vision and taking away my handicap!”

Refractive Surgery

LASIK – LASIK is a surgical procedure for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK uses cool rays of light to reshape the inner tissue of the cornea to the proper curvature. The procedure is quick, painless and heals naturally. 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

LASER CATARACT SURGERY – In February 2012, the Bochner Eye Institute became the first eye care centre in Canada to offer laser cataract surgery with the Catalys™ precision laser system, considered to be the most significant advancement in cataract surgery in more than 50 years. 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

REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE – RLE is offered in cases of very severe nearsightedness or farsightedness where LASIK and PRK are less effective. The eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL) in order to correct refractive errors in eyes without cataracts. 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.
