Dr. Raymond Stein Discusses LASIK on the Marilyn Denis Show

December 17, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Dr. Raymond Stein of the Bochner Eye Institute recently appeared on the Marilyn Denis Show to talk about LASIK laser vision correction. He was asked to come on the program a few weeks after performing LASIK surgery on the show's audience coordinator, Leanne. The episode aired on CTV and was broadcast across Canada.

During the segment, Dr. Stein explained the LASIK procedure from start to finish. He identified suitable LASIK candidates, reviewed the pre-operative tests and preparations and then explained each step of the surgery, potential complications and the latest technological advances which are making LASIK safer, more comfortable and more successful for Toronto LASIK patients.

Leanne, who opted for all-laser LASIK, talked about how the surgery corrected her nearsightedness and astigmatism, thus eliminating her dependence on eyeglasses and improving her quality of life. The most surprising part of the experience, she said, was how quickly she recovered from surgery and how much her vision had improved when she woke up the next morning.

According to Dr. Stein, 95 percent of candidates qualify for LASIK surgery. The surgery, which can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism, is a three-step process. First, a small flap is made in the cornea. Next, a laser beam is used to reshape the corneal tissue, thereby correcting most refractive errors. After the tissue has been appropriately modified, the flap is returned to its original position, where it protects the eye during the healing process.
