Important COVID Notice

Friends, we are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 Public Health concerns effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

To our dear clients and friends,

At Bense, our work revolves around your health and happiness and that could not be more meaningful to us than at this point in time. Our obligation is to each other and our number one priority is the health, safety and well being of our wonderful patients, employees, friends, and their families. We have been closely monitoring this dynamic situation, including the recommendations and requirements from all levels of our public health authorities. As a result, earlier today we made the decision to temporarily suspend our clinics at the end of business today until further notice. For over 25 years you have placed your trust in us. Rest assured we will continue to earn that trust.

Over the years, we have come to know you as more than just clients and patients. We have learned a thing or two about your priorities. And what we know is that you are great and giving people. That you care about your community and about each other. The following quote reminded us of so many of you. So we thought we would share it with you:

“It is everyone’s time to shine as a great citizen for humanity.”

We are in this together. We will make a difference. We are called upon and we will shine.

Our best wishes go out to each and every one of you. Stay well. Stay safe. We look forward to seeing you again at Bense when we are back up and running full force!

Yours in health,

Dr. Jon Bense, Dr. Hesham Lakosha, Bev, Gail, and Wanda

NOTE: Please email us at or leave us a message at 722.2020. We will be responding to all messages on a regular basic. Thank you so much!





Open your eyes and see clearly. That’s the gift of LASIK.

Using cutting-edge technology means eliminating the cutting edge. Yes, it’s true – all of our procedures are bladeless, ensuring the best possible results for your eyes. There’s a reason LASIK is one of the most popular elective procedures – it’s easy and you’ll be amazed at how clear your vision will truly be.


The Most Advanced Vision Correction Solutions For Every Issue

For over twenty-five years, we’ve performed various types of vision correction procedures with an extremely high success rate. Using the latest technologies available worldwide, right here in Newfoundland and Labrador. Bense Vision offers many vision services, concentrating mostly on iLASIK and iLASIK-Xtra. With a strong reputation for the most advanced, cutting edge technology and experience, Bense Vision has become the most trusted and most established laser vision correction facility in Eastern Canada. In fact, we are the Only Certified Blade-free iLASIK Centre in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Our Services

At Bense Vision, we strive to provide our patients with the best options available when it comes to vision correction procedures. This includes:

This procedure is LASIK in its most advanced form. It has been and continues to be one of the most popular procedures done by laser in North America. We have been performing the iLASIK procedure since 2007 with precision and accuracy, helping many patients to be able to see well again without vision aids.

This procedure combines our iLASIK procedure with Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (KXL), a procedure used to strengthen a weakened cornea.

The iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio aberrometer is a next-generation tool for mapping and analyzing the cornea. This is done by constructing an individual ocular blueprint for each patient, allowing for the highest degree of accuracy during your LASIK procedure.

Our iDesign aberrometer is one of only a handful currently available in North America, and we’re pleased to be able to offer this incredible piece of technology to our patients.

After wearing glasses for 34 years, I finally got to kiss them goodbye and don’t miss them at all. Thank you to Bense Vision, Bev, and all of their wonderful staff that made me feel so important that day.
