What is laser vision correction?
Laser vision correction is a procedure that improves vision by using a laser to permanently change the shape of the cornea. Often referred to as LASIK (an acronym for the medical term laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis), it is the most commonly performed laser vision correction procedure and is an effective treatment for a wide range of vision problems.

Visian Implantable Contact Lens
The Visian Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is an exciting newer surgical option for freedom of glasses now available at Eye Q Premium Laser. Higher corrections deemed not suitable for laser correction may be eliminated by injection of this biocompatible contact lens technology through microincisional surgery. Once again, freedom from glasses is only minutes away.
“My eye doctor told me that Dr. Leong-Sit was the best eye surgeon in the city, so I figured that it couldn’t hurt to see him. Dr. Leong-Sit took the time to explain everything about the ICLs and the procedure and why I would be a good candidate. The cost is basically 8-10 pairs of glasses for me
over the next 30 years.. Dr. Leong-Sit also took time to explain the procedure to my husband and his surgical staff even showed my husband what the implantable contact lens looked like!
The procedure in itself is about 10 minutes per eye and a few hours after surgery, I could see 20/20. It’s remarkable to be able to see everything and not have to be within 2” of something to see it!”
Refractive Lens Exchange
Particularly suited to our patients over the age of 50 years, elimination of your glasses can also be achieved by replacement of your natural crystalline lens with an intraocular lens implant through Refractive Lens Exchange. Decades of experience in cataract surgery has allowed the
science of intraocular lens technology to arrive at today’s state of the art. Now, exchanging your crystalline lens with an Advanced Intraocular Lens Implant occurs through microincisional surgery and injectable acrylic technology in a 6 to 10 minute procedure per eye. At Eye Q Premium
Laser, the latest in available technology for intraocular lenses is represented by the SN60WF IQ for monofocal correction, the Acrysof Toric for astigmatism correction and ReStor for presbyopic correction. At your Refractive Assessment, the medical and surgical expertise at our center will be able to advise you of the best choice for your eyes, your life.

Keratoconus is a progressive corneal curvature disorder with previously very few surgical options except the last resort option of a corneal transplant. Now, clear ring segments may be inserted into the cornea in a procedure called Intacs for Keratoconus. Used in combination with the Intralase
Femtosecond laser, this represents a new and promising technology for the treatment of a visually disabling condition. Armed with technology, corneal subspecialist expertise, and experience, the surgical team at Eye Q can now advise you best from a full range of surgical options.
