Lasik vs NO-CUT

 In Ask the doctor

I am considering having laser vision corrective surgery and was wondering what is the difference between Lasik and NO-CUT? 


By Goldberg Centre

This is a great question that we often get. Firstly, to begin, it is important to know that at Goldberg Laser Vision Correction we only perform the NO-CUT method as we feel it is the safest procedure with the quickest recovery time. In your first consultation with our surgeon he will provide you a much more in-depth answer to your question but below, you can find a few key differences between Lasik and NO-CUT.



  • Starts with a local anesthesia and a mild sedative
  • A small incision is made to your eye to create a thin corneal “flap.”
  • This flap exposes the deeper layers of your cornea permitting the doctor to use the laser to correct your vision
  • Once the procedure is completed, the flap is then folded back, and it begins to heal without any stitches


  •  Unlike the Lasik method (described above) there is no requirement to make a corneal flap
  • This means there is no incision that has to be made to your eye which is one of the key reasons why we perform the NO-CUT method vs Lasik
  • Like Lasik, in NO-CUT we use a bladeless laser to correct your vision
  • Once the procedure is complete we give you a protective contact lens to wear for a few days to ensure your eyes heal properly and eliminates the risk of infection


NO-CUT is one of the most advanced and safest procedures for laser vision correction. Call us today to learn more and book your consultation with our medical consultant. 416-412-4441

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really something
    which I feel I would never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely wide for
    me. I am taking a look ahead for your subsequent post,
    I will try to get the hold of it!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.

    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog
    loads extremely quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Exceptional Blog!
