I'm planning on returning to the military and want to get my eyes fixed before I go back. So given the stresses placed on your eyes in that kind of job, I'm looking at PRK. My prescription is quite minor at about -1.75 in each eye. Not much by most people's standards, but even for me, glasses make a huge difference. I can't imagine what it's like for most!
So being in Toronto I was torn between just doing PRK at Bochner or flying out to PLEC. After seeing Justin's post though, I followed up with Dr. Machat's clinic (CCV/Nvision) and just yesterday they did in fact confirm that they recently upgraded to the SmartSurface technology for their Schwind Amaris.
I have a consultation on Nov 17 and will update everyone then with what I find out.
Finally, for those in Toronto who are looking around, I was quoted at $5400 at Bochner for everything, and it was all inclusive, even unlimited eyedrops and everything. They're using a slightly older technology (Allegretto Eye-Q at 400hz), but overall didn't feel too bad about the place- Dr. Stein is one of the top refractive surgeons out there. I did find their pre-testing a little light/rushed however, which made me a little uneasy.
