Vision Surgery

Learn more about common eye surgeries:

  • Start here for an overview of the different types of surgery to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism; and the merits and drawbacks of each.
  • It’s the most popular vision correction surgery, by far. Learn what to expect before, during and after the procedure.
  • Complications from LASIK are few, but they do happen. It’s important to understand the risks, and how to minimize them.
  • Successful LASIK surgeons get that way from experience and the ability to screen out poor candidates for the procedure. Here’s the list of what makes you a good candidate.
  • An alternative to LASIK, PPK is a no-flap eye surgery. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages, as well as what to expect.
  • A number of relatively new procedures are addressing the age-related decrease in ability to focus on near objects, that was once correctable only with bifocals.
  • These small lenses or optical devices are inserted into the cornea to alter its shape and correct vision problems.
  • Sometimes because of disease or injury, the cornea becomes so damaged that problems cannot be corrected with eyeglasses, contacts, or refractive surgery such as LASIK.

Welcome to Elmira Family Eye Care. We are excited to be open again to serve your eye care needs.
Based on the requirements and advice provided by Ontario Public Health, the Ontario Association of Optometrists, and the College of Optometrists of Ontario we have implemented new policies and procedures.
To maintain our patients', staff, and doctors' health and safety we require you to book an appointment prior to coming to the office, including picking up glasses and glasses adjustments.
We have also decided to keep the front door locked so we installed a doorbell to let us know you have arrived.
There are several other changes that we will let you know about when you book your appointment - Every person in our office must wear a mask.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
