What is your laser surgery success rate?

Our success rates are outstanding – and we can support our claims with actual statistics. As a research centre, VLEC carefully tracks the outcomes of all our patients and compiles credible, industry-recognized data.

That means the statistics we give you are actually about Dr. Blaylock and VLEC, rather than numbers published by the manufacturers of a particular technology. After all, when you go in for a procedure, you want to know about the performance of the surgeon operating on you.

In order to make an appointment with you to consider laser eye surgery treatment options, do I need to first consult with my existing optometrist? Or, can I just book an appointment?

Great question. I just need a little more information about yourself before I am able to answer your question. If you could answer the following questions:

  1. What is your date of birth?
  2. Where do you currently live?
  3. What is your prescription?

Why choose VLEC?

Simple – we understand how precious your vision is to you, and are committed to detail, quality, integrity and providing the best possible outcomes for you and your eyes.

Should I choose an eye surgeon who offers different options?

Yes! Not everyone is right for the same standard procedures. Some would enjoy far better outcomes with other technologies. Therefore, if only 1 or 2 procedures are offered, you may not make a fully informed decision about what is truly in your best interest.

At VLEC, we offer the broadest range of services available in British Columbia. This allows us to tailor treatment to the needs, lifestyle and budget of each individual patient, with safety and effectiveness always our # 1 priority.

The power to treat multiple conditions at once Thanks to our wide range of services, we can also treat multiple conditions. For example, we can correct farsightedness, presbyopia or other vision issues during cataract or glaucoma surgery. Get it done once, and get it done right.

What is the cost of laser eye surgery?

Our pricing is transparent, with no hidden costs or fees. At VLEC, our price includes pre-op and post-op care, and one enhancement within 2 years, if deemed safe and necessary by the ophthalmologist.

The cost of surgery varies from very low fees, marketed to individuals with very small refractive error, using traditional bladed techniques for Lasik. To higher costs for premium state of the art all laser Lasik with wave front optimized ablation patterns and highly personalized care. The advertised prices may appear very low based on financing over five year terms for basic entry procedures; the corporate model is to sell up the procedure once you are in the door. They add meaningless “life time enhancement policies” knowing that most people cannot be enhanced safely or predictably after one or two years have passed.
Look for centers with simple all included pricing that offer premium care with at least one free enhancement, if you need more than one enhancement you should decline surgery and seek another opinion. They should all have financing. PRK all included should be $1600/eye, all laser Lasik all included, should be $2100/ eye. Corneal cross-ling at the time of Lasik Xtra should be $500/ eye in addition to the base price.

Do you offer financing?

Yes, we have easy financing options. Contact us for details.
