Dr. Pae has co-managed refractive laser surgery patients with the most highly-regarded laser surgeons in
Toronto for the past 15 years. He is an affiliate doctor at several laser surgery centers in the Greater
Toronto Area. In 1999, Dr. Pae underwent laser eye surgery himself and now enjoys excellent vision without
corrective lenses. He is able to use both his professional and personal experience in helping his patients
to consider the procedure for themselves.
Refractive laser eye surgery can be an excellent option for those who wish to reduce or eliminate their
dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses. If you are considering this procedure or if you would like
to learn more about it, a visit to your optometrist is an important first step in the process.
The optometrist has a central role in determining whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the
procedure, both through comprehensive examination of your eyes and through discussions with you. The
optometrist is also responsible for both your pre-operative and post-operative care. It is important that
your optometrist takes the time to discuss all aspects of the procedure with you in detail, including the
risks, the expectations and the various types of procedures. Laser surgery is a big step for anyone
considering it, and the optometrist will treat those prospective candidates with a high level of attention.
If you are considering this procedure and would like a professional opinion regarding your suitability, or
if you simply want more information about it, please tell us at your next eye examination.
