Refractive surgery is the term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia) to reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.

Reshaping the cornea by using LASER technology is one way to permanently address these several eye conditions such as myopia. Lasik is a good alternative to the yearly upgrades of prescription spectacle lenses.



For adults 20 to 40 years old who consider the freedom from spectacles an important aspect of their active lifestyle, LASIK is a great alternative and in the long run, an invaluable investment in their visual health. However, not all cases of Myopia, Hyperopia or Astigmatism are good candidates for LASIK surgery, especially persons with very high correction or chronic eye diseases. CLVC offers free evaluation and counselling for all interested and potential candidates.



Femtosecond LASIK is the most technologically advanced form of LASIK, erasing surgeons and patients anxiety about the accuracy and safety of the procedure. In recent times this procedure was not offered in the Caribbean, however, thanks to the efforts of Alcon, working through Caribbean Lasik Vision Centre, this technology is now here in Jamaica. CLVC is now the leading centre in the region for refractive vision correction, also offering multifocal and toric implants for persons undergoing cataract and other surgical procedures involving lens exchange.

CLVC brings together a group of specialists from here in Jamaica, Barbados and Florida in a collaborative effort to make available the best and most advanced technology in refractive surgery, the Alcon Wavelight Refractive Suite. Also, this system can be utilised for procedures such as correction of residual astigmatism after eye surgeries via Limbal Relaxing Incisions reduction of astigmatism in Keratoconus using Intra-Stromal rings to create safe and accurate endothelial dissection in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty(DMEK).
