  • You must be in good general health and free of eye disease
  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • Your corrective prescription must be stable

LASEK – THE PROCEDURE OF CHOICE AT THE GOLDBERG CENTRE

Dr. Goldberg’s procedure of choice is LASEK, primarily because of the enhanced safety associated with no cutting of the cornea.

There is NO CUTTING and NO FLAP.

The corneal FLAP of the LASIK procedure NEVER HEALS. It adheres or sticks, but never heals, and flaps can be dislodged years later! So if your lifestyle includes sports or your profession demands freedom from the encumberance of glasses or exposes you to potential eye trauma, LASEK may be ideal for you. There is no flap to dislodge.

If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery, we would encourage you to come in and have a complimentary consultation. Many people are happy to find out that LASEK is more successful for patients with higher prescriptions, thinner corneas, large pupils, or chronic dry eyes.

And if your profession or your lifestyle exposes you to potential eye trauma, LASEK may be ideal for you. Because the cornea is not cut, it heals completely and cannot be dislodged.
