What is LASIK?

Laser eye surgery is a great option for vision correction, and most patients experience a dramatic improvement in quality of life by eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.
Laser eye surgery precisely reshapes the cornea, providing clear vision without the assistance of glasses or contact lenses. Laser eye procedures can often correct common conditions such as farsightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. LASIK surgery is performed using an excimer laser.

Am I a suitable candidate?

Prior to performing your procedure, Dr Dale Harrison will consult with you to assess if you are a candidate for laser eye surgery. A thorough examination with additional special corneal topographic scans will be done. International safety guidelines are strictly adhered to and no 'boundaries' will be pushed.
