Exceptional Vision Correction Technology at Every Step
Laser vision correction has never been safer
The LASIK procedure is the result of a decade's worth of technical refinement - it combines all of the latest all-laser technology in one procedure.
There's No Blade
Your LASIK flap will be created using an ultra-precise Intralase Femtosecond Laser - the safest way to perform LASIK.
It's Truly Personalized
The LASIK procedure is customized just for you. Everything is based on your individual vision dynamics, so it's all about you.
Grey Bruce LASIK provides a completely integrated and personalized procedure based on the most advanced vision correction technology at every step.
Step 1 - Creating Your WaveScan Personal Vision Profile
We perform a series of tests to determine the individual characteristics of your vision, including the use of our WaveScan(TM) technology. The WaveScan system creates a unique 3-D map of your eyes. Then Dr. Orr uses this information in the Advanced CustomVue process to design a customized treatment for each of your eyes.
Step 2 - Making the LASIK Flap
The LASIK procedure exclusively uses an advanced technology called the IntraLase Method. The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your corneal flap, the thin flap of tissue that the doctor folds back in order to perform your LASIK procedure. The IntraLase method also delivers outstanding visual results - more patients achieve 20/20 or better when the IntraLase Method is used.* And in a clinical survey of LASIK patients who had their corneal flaps created usuing a blad in one eye and the IntraLase Method in the other, the vision in the IntraLase-treated eye was preferred 3-to-1 among those who stated a preference.^
Step 3 - Your Advanced CustomVue Laser Vision Correction
Now that you've had your WaveScan and your blade-free corneal flap, your vision can be corrected using Advanced CustomVue within the LASIK procedure. The Advanced CustomVue process has earned Health Canada approval to treat the broadest range of vision imperfections possible, including mild to severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and all types of astigmatism. Clinical studies* showed that in one year:
100% of nearsighted patients could pass a driver's vision test without glasses or contact lenses, and 98% of mild-to-moderate nearsighted patients could see 20/20 or better without glasses or contact lenses!
Four times as many mild-to-moderately nearsighted participants were "very satisfied with their night vision" after treatment compared to their night vision with glasses or contacts before treatment.
