Laser Surgery

Do you misplace your eyeglasses, find them getting damaged with everyday wear and tear, constantly buying cleaning solution for your contact lenses? Are your glasses or contacts getting in the way?

An alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses is refractive laser surgery. It’s a one-time procedure and a great way of being free from eyewear. At Eyes on Derry we do LASIK co-management with different refractive laser centres, taking care of the pre-operative and post-operative visits. To note: specialists at their respective laser centres perform the laser surgery.
