Photorefractive Keratectomy or PRK is a form of laser vision correction where a surgeon removes the cornea's surface layer, also known as the epithelium. They will then reshape the corneal bed with the laser, similarly to LASIK.
This specialized technique is usually reserved for patients whose cornea may be too thin to safely allow for the creation of the corneal flap essential for LASIK surgery. Sometimes, patients may come into UELC hoping to have LASIK surgery and are instead directed to PRK. This is an assessment that is made on a case-by-case basis.
Key similarities between PRK and LASIK surgery include:
Both are used to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.
Both are known to be equally safe procedures.
The visual results with both procedures are the same.
At UELC, we know that BOTOX Is NOT meant to create the frozen face! Instead, it’s used to tone down the muscle activation that continuously occurs throughout the day, causing lines and wrinkles over time. Dr.Raj Maini and our team know the proper placement of Botox to disenable muscles and how frequently it needs to be part of your regime during the year to accomplish a more subtle and rejuvenated YOU.

The eyelids are one of the first areas to show the effect of aging and fatigue. Drooping eyelids, dark circles, and puffy under-eye bags can make you look older than you are and may make you feel less confident about your appearance.
If under-eye concealers, targeted eye-firming creams, and getting plenty of rest hasn’t helped reduce the bags under your eyes, there is a way to permanently regain a more youthful and refreshed eye area: eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove underlying fat and excess skin from the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It is sometimes used to add an upper eyelid crease for those who have monolids. It’s a short and easy procedure that can significantly enhance your appearance. UELC has well-equipped cosmetic clinics for eyelid surgery in Vaughan, Brampton, and Toronto to help you.
We aim to care for our patients compassionately in a technologically cutting edge environment using the latest advances in clinical research.
