Welcome to the office of Dr. Hesham Lakosha, a leader in comprehensive eye care including Lasik vision correction and Refractive Lens Exchange in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Our Procedures

Lasik Eye Surgery

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, is a type of laser eye surgery for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism


Blepharoplasty (pronounced “blef-a-ro-plasty”) includes surgery to repair droopy eyelids that may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat

Corneal cross linking

The cornea, the clear dome-shaped window on the front of the eye, consists of 5 different layers of tissue.

Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery

Dr. Hesham Lakosha and the Halifax Eye Institute are the first in Atlantic Canada to offer Laser Cataract Surgery with Catalys™ Precision Laser System.


Intraocular Lenses (RLE and ICL)

Intraocular lenses are implanted in the eye. Two intraocular techniques are available at the Halifax Eye Institute: Phakic Intraocular Lenses – often referred to as an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) and Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Cataract Extraction and Procedures

During the Cataract Extraction with Lens Implantation, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced by a manufactured lens implant selected to compensate for the eye’s refractive errors

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)

During photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), the surface cells of the cornea, called the corneal epithelium, are removed instead of creating a LASIK flap.
