Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in Boxhill

Laser vision correction is becoming increasingly popular as more people require glasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems. LASIK and PRK eye surgery gives you freedom from wearing glasses and contact lenses, and gives you naturally clear vision.

Dr Joanne Goh provides safe and effective laser eye surgery and cataract surgery in Boxhill.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Boxhill

LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery. LASIK eye surgery corrects short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.

During the surgery, a flap of corneal tissue is created, which is subsequently lifted so that the excimer laser can reshape the corneal tissue underneath to correct your prescription. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down.

The surgery is painless, and complete visual recovery is seen the next day. The short downtime, minimal discomfort, and rapid visual recovery are reasons LASIK is the most popular laser eye surgery.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Boxhill

PRK eye surgery, also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA), involves reshaping the cornea without creating a flap, and it’s a completely non-touch technique.

Advantages of PRK Eye Surgery

People with thin or unusually shaped cornea are usually recommended PRK eye surgery over LASIK. It is also a more suitable option for patients with severe dry eyes. As it does not have a risk of late flap dislodgement, it may also be more suitable for those who engage in some contact sports.


Cataract Eye Surgery in Boxhill

The clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens is called a cataract. Cataracts are a common condition in older adults as it is a normal part of ageing. However, younger patients may develop cataracts due to other risk factors such as diabetes, trauma or steroid use.

The symptoms of cataracts are often insidious due to their gradual onset. Here are a few common symptoms of cataracts:

  • Blurred or cloudy vision 
  • Increasing difficulty with vision at night
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Need for brighter light for reading
  • Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription.
  • Loss of contrast or difficulties with colour perception

Surgery is the only option for treating cataracts. During the 20 minutes surgical procedure, the cloudy lens is replaced with a new lens implant. It does not only restore your vision, but in many cases, it eliminates the need to wear glasses. Today, different kinds of lens implants are available on the market, and your surgeon will choose the most suitable one considering your lifestyle and visual needs.
