Eye Q Premium Laser Ophthalmologists in Edmonton
At Eye Q Premium Laser, providing first-rate patient care is our priority, and we take this commitment seriously. We feel privileged to be involved in your laser vision correction experience, and understand that this once-in-a-lifetime event is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in regard to your eye health. Our mission is to deliver excellence in technology, surgical skill, knowledge and comfort, without ever compromising the quality or safety of your vision care.
Dr. Leong-Sit, medical director of Eye Q Premium Laser, has been performing refractive and cataract surgery in the Capital Region since completing corneal subspecialty training in 1998. Since that time, he has had the honor of participating in the exciting experience of performing laser eye surgery for thousands of patients.
Candidacy for Laser Eye Surgery at Eye Q Premium Laser
Since its inception, this life-changing surgery has advanced over the years to become a very controlled and predictable procedure for individuals who meet candidacy requirements. At Eye Q, we take pride in applying the most scrupulous medical criteria for candidacy.
We are one of the first laser vision correction providers in Western Canada to apply the most advanced diagnostic technology, the SIRIUS corneal wavefront eye imaging system, to assist us in determining candidacy. We realize that our conservative approach likely rules out certain patients who would probably be fine undergoing laser eye surgery, but we also recognize that ”probably” is not good enough in safeguarding your invaluable eyesight.
Eye Q only allows local eye surgeons who are fellowship trained in corneal surgery to partner with us in providing corneal surgeries. These are surgeons who commit to providing: excellent eye care service within their own communities; attentive patient care, from start to finish; and tertiary-level subspecialty surgical care, when necessary. Our surgical partners have an exceptional skill level and the utmost commitment to their profession, as they have demonstrated with their completion of advanced cornea subspecialty training, which goes beyond the residency training completed by a general ophthalmologist. Corneal specialists: perform corneal transplants; treat medical and surgical conditions of the cornea; and treat patients who come to them as referrals from optometrists and general ophthalmologists, for refractive and corneal surgery. As our patient testimonials demonstrate, we are the center of choice for countless health and ophthalmic care professionals.
