  • We are honored to have received the Consumer Choice Award for business excellence for laser vision correction. What makes this award even more meaningful is that we were chosen by the people of Windsor-Essex. It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful community and be entrusted with our patients most precious gift - their eyes.
  • The Victus is designed for creating precise LASIK flaps and is the only femtosecond laser that provides the surgeon with live swept-source OCT imaging throughout the entire LASIK flap procedure – helping them to maintain visualization and control throughout.
    We are proud to announce that Dr. Tayfour has most recently been the first surgeon in Canada to utilize this advanced technology.
    The anatomically curved Patient Interface provides an extremely precise, stable connection between the laser and the eye. This results in accurate 3-Dimensional cutting while preserving the natural shape of the eye. Patients maintain visualization throughout the procedure and the curved interface provides a more comfortable experience than other flat, applanating interfaces used on older femtosecond lasers.
