Laser Eye Surgery and iLASIK at King LASIK
Dr. King specializes in Blade-Free LASIK.
Dr. King and his dedicated team of eye surgeons perform the state-of-the-art iLASIK procedure, which has been approved to correct the vision of NASA astronauts. iLASIK, also known as all-laser LASIK, combines the bladeless IntraLase laser with wavefront-guided measurements and excimer laser technology to provide customized LASIK treatments. iLASIK greatly reduces the risks associated with conventional LASIK's surgical methods and promotes precision, safety and patient comfort.
Dr. King and the King LASIK team firmly believe that a customized vision correction that is safe and comfortable is essential to ensuring the best outcome for each of their patients. King LASIK's unsurpassed surgical record and extensive experience has earned the center a reputation for helping LASIK Edmonton patients and those throughout Western Canada gain independence from prescription vision correction.
Cataract Surgery at King LASIK
King LASIK eye surgeons also offer cataract surgery and have helped many cataract patients throughout Western Canada achieve clearer vision. Cataract surgery at King LASIK is performed using the "no-stitch" technique and premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs). The use of sophisticated IOLs, including AcrySof ReSTOR and Crystalens, allows patients to achieve improved vision at most distances, often without the need for traditional eyewear. IOLs can also be used to correct presbyopia, an age-related condition that affects the focusing power of the eye, thereby inducing farsightedness.

What Do Patients Say About King LASIK?
"I've been wearing glasses and contacts for 15 years. My poor vision was very frustrating and I was tired of relying on contacts and glasses. Dr. King and the staff at King LASIK made me feel relaxed and confident about the LASIK procedure. It was much easier than I expected! The day after, I had clear 20/15 vision and no pain. Recovery is so quick! The only thing I regret...is that I didn't do it SOONER." Gillian Foote, Radio Personality
"King LASIK is the place to go for LASIK. King LASIK uses NASA and Naval Aviator approved Blade-FREE Intralase LASIK. What if you move your eye? Well, they offer a tracking system on their lasers that automatically shuts off if your eye is off track. Trust your eyes to King LASIK." Adam Carolla, Radio and TV Personality
"It's amazing how a few minutes completely changed my life! My fear was that my profession in dermatology is very visually oriented and after talking with Dr. King at King LASIK, I was educated about the technology that LASIK was possible for my vision. Clear vision is priceless and that's why I chose Dr. King to perform LASIK for me." Stephanie Traut, Dermatologist
"Having clear eye sight is amazing to me. I see better now than I did with contacts. I always had dry eyes and was uncomfortable with contacts in and I didn't like the look or feel of glasses. I am excited about how my upcoming season will go with ‘new eyes.' I wish I had done this years ago. My wife had it done a month before and loved it, so when I came in for my free consultation, I was sold." Dan Dickau, NBA Player
