The cornea bends light into the eye in order to allow us to see. Typically, glasses or contact lenses will help bend more light to allow for clear vision. Laser Vision Correction (LVC) is used to change the shape of the cornea to more accurately point the light clearly into the eye.

During your initial appointment, your CECA doctor will go through a full evaluation process to determine if you’re a candidate for Refractive Surgery. They will explain the procedure, the cost, and answer any remaining questions. You will then be able to decide if Refractive Surgery is the right choice for you.

  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism


LASIK (Laser-in-Situ Keratomileusis) is an FDA-approved outpatient procedure that uses the excimer laser to reshape the cornea to correct your vision. LASIK involves the creation of a corneal flap that can be created with a blade or a laser. LASIK is one of the most frequently performed healthcare procedures in North America. It can correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

IntraLase (Bladeless) LASIK

A silent computer-guided laser is used during the first step of the bladeless LASIK procedure to create the corneal flap. Traditional LASIK treatments use a mechanical device called a microkeratome which uses a blade to produce the LASIK flap. In this procedure, the laser accounts for the natural curvature of the cornea, creating a customized flap of uniform thickness. This "no blade" procedure produces a flap that is much more precise, safer, and more accurate, resulting in many benefits to the patients such as a faster recovery time and the ability to tailor the procedure to your eye.
