The licensed eye surgeons of LASIK MD?a laser vision correction provider with over 30 locations in North America?perform more than 60,000 total procedures each year. A chosen treatment among professional athletes and media personalities, LASIK and PRK correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism using advanced excimer laser technology. Treatments begin as patients meet with a LASIK MD eyecare professional for a complimentary consultation. The procedure takes about five minutes per eye, and most patients return to work within 24 hours. To monitor healing and evaluate results, each LASIK procedure includes postoperative assessments.
A team of experienced technicians at Yonge Eglinton Cosmetic Centre masterfully performs laser hair-removal treatments with state-of-tomorrow equipment and expertise. Unwelcome body fur shrinks away at the sight of the LightSheer diode laser system, which pulses condensed light to render surfaces such as the bikini line or underarms smooth enough to use as an impromptu dry-erase board. Additional beautification treatments include microdermabrasion and wrinkle-erasing Botox injections.
Head surgeon Dr. Christoph Kranemann, who has thousands of laser correction procedures under his belt, leads Clearview Vision Institute’s team of optical professionals in sharpening patients’ eyesight. Understanding the anxiety often associated with visiting eye doctors, the staff quells unease by using the VisuMax system for more accurate LASIK procedures. Celebrated architects Diamond Schmitt have also lent their talents to designing a modern yet comforting environment. Light wood panelling and amber glass accents add warmth to white walls, and open spaces remove confined sensations. During procedures, ergonomically designed chairs keep patients cozy and reduce the need to shift or fasten seatbelts. The recovery room, lovingly dubbed “the spa,” features a row of leather recliners where patients can convalesce in quiet comfort or make eyes at the flat-panel TV.
After running a successful medical practice in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for more than a decade, Dr. Habibah Surani came to Canada to open The Surani Clinic. It turns out her skills have translated. At the clinic, she wields Canada Health?approved lasers and other equipment in a slate of beautifying treatments. The lasers are safe yet effective, reducing the growth of body hair, the look of unsightly veins, or the appearance of the wrinkles that result from smiling when you're not sure what the nice firefighter is shouting. Additionally, the clinic offers a suite of skincare products ranging from cleansers to sunscreen to acne control.
Since graduating from the University of Toronto in 1976, Dr. Chaim Goldberg has peered into the eyes of more than 100,000 patients. Dr. Goldberg, an expert in lasers, treats a wide variety of visual disorders, and he has mastered two of the most popular procedures around?LASEK and LASIK surgery.
When not correcting vision with lasers, contacts, or regular ol' glasses, Dr. Goldberg and his team also administer aesthetic services, including everything from chemical peels and microdermabrasion to laser skin resurfacing and Blu-U treatments. The latter uses a topical photo-sensitizing agent to smooth over sun-damaged spots, fine lines, or blotches left from a failed career in pie eating.
The ocular experts at Vision Clinic assess eyesight and stock their boutique shelves with frames from names including Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, and Alain Mikli. Devoted to creating eyewear that suits the wearer’s lifestyle, the staff consults with each client to ensure lenses withstand prolonged staring at computer screens or prolonged staring matches with younger siblings. Once frames are selected, opticians keep them fitting with complimentary adjustments and onsite repairs.
Vision Clinic’s attentive care stretches beyond its shop doors—the practice provides prescription eyewear and exams for the local community. The company also makes frequent contributions to a number of charitable organizations.
