Service quality and your safety is essential at the IRIS Ophthalmology Clinic.

If the eye is too long or the cornea is too curved, the light rays converge in front of the retina, resulting in blurred vision, especially from far away.
If the eye is too short or the cornea is not curved enough, the light rays converge behind the retina and the lens constantly works to adjust the image’s focus on the retina.
Astigmatism is often caused by a cornea that is shaped like a football, meaning it is more convex along one axis and flatter along the other.
Over the course of its life, the lens gradually loses its natural elasticity, called accommodation, which is what switches distance vision to near vision.

Cataract is defined as a loss of transparency of the lens. Its effect can be compared to looking through a frosted or tinted window. Initially, the opacity may affect only a limited area of the lens and therefore go unnoticed. However, it tends to evolve gradually, leading to a reduction in the quality of the vision.Learn more
No. ULTRALASIK surgery is not painful. Most people only experience minor discomfort. Anti-inflammatory drops are also administered to reduce the risk of pain during the procedure.
It is advisable to be 18 years of age or older before undergoing this type of procedure because adolescent vision could change until this age.
To be an eligible candidate, you must be 18 years old and have stable vision for at least two years. We will conduct a preoperative assessment to determine if you are an eligible candidate with no obligation on your part. Administered by an optometrist, this 2-hour assessment will enable us to evaluate the condition of your eyes in detail. It is important to make sure your eyes are in perfect health for optimal results. This pre-assessment will allow us to determine the technique that’s best for you.
