Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the College of Optometrists of Ontario has given a directive that all Optometry Offices should offer urgent care only.
Dr. Coward and Associates will be following this directive in order to ensure the health of our patients and staff. However, if you do have an urgent matter (eye health emergency, loss /breakage of glasses, prescription or refills of drops, run out of contact lenses) please call our office at 613-392-6211 and we can assist you. You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are open to assist you Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm so please contact us then.
We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are positive that with the cooperation of our community and everyone doing their part, this difficult time will soon be distant.
Thank you for your understanding. Drs. Bruce Coward, Jim Tzeng, Nathalie Renaud, Sanyukta Awale, Maria Coward, Ricky Cheung and Staff.
Laser vision correction can be used to correct vision problems. However, not everyone is a candidate for this surgery. The optometrists at Dr. Coward & Associates are happy to answer your questions about laser vision correction and whether or not they believe you are a candidate for surgery.
Laser eye surgery often involves reshaping the eye’s cornea to improve optical focus in an attempt to eliminate or decrease the need for glasses. Two of the most common types of laser eye surgery are laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). For presbyopic patients (those older than 40 that require reading glasses as well as distance glasses), there are a variety of surgical options available that may provide clear vision.
If you are interested in laser eye surgery, your optometrist will refer you to an ophthalmologist for a consultation. They often work with the surgeon to assess your vision and ocular health post-surgery.
Please speak to your optometrist today about whether laser eye surgery may be right for you.
