No-touch Laser Eye Surgery Recommended

I didn't have the Lasik procedure done, but a similar laser surgery here in Canada where the eye isn't cut (thus called no-touch). Much the same as Lasik and the results are fabulous.

I'm sorry, I don't know what type of laser was used. READ COMMENT

Both are good, I didn't prefer one over the other. The Maple Ridge location had a special on so I paid ony $200 but I think that's over now. It usually costs around $400 and they recommend several treatments however I've only ever done... READ COMMENT

Sure, I have since had it done again and am just as impressed with the results as with 5 years ago. The first time is a place called Beauti-Med in Port Coquitlam, BC and most recently I had it done at Skin Health Laser & Spa in Maple... READ COMMENT

They lasted about 4 - 5 days and as the days passed they dry up and flake off. Tip: do not pick at them to get them off sooner as it will cause red spots (something like picking a light scab). READ COMMENT
