Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in Carlton

If you want to achieve naturally clear vision without glasses or contact lenses, laser eye surgery in Carlton is your best option.

Today, more and more people are turning to laser eye surgery as it gives them freedom from wearing glasses and contact lenses. It’s a safe, fast and most effective way of achieving naturally clear vision. Today, LASIK and PRK are the two most advanced laser eye surgeries that a specialised and experienced refractive eye surgeon performs. If you want to consult with an expert regarding laser eye surgery, book your appointment with Dr Joanne Goh who will give you a personalised treatment plan for your eyes and visual requirements.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Carlton

LASIK eye surgery can correct a wide range of prescriptions, including short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.

During LASIK surgery, a flap is first created, and then lifted to reshape the cornea underneath it, correcting for your prescription. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down. The surgery is painless and has minimum downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities from the very next day due to the fast visual recovery after the procedure.

LASIK surgery owes its popularity to its short downtime, minimal discomfort and rapid visual recovery. Patients are able to see very well and can return to their usual activities by the next day.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Carlton

If you are not eligible for LASIK surgery, you can correct your prescription with PRK laser eye surgery in Carlton. PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy) laser eye surgery is also known as ASLA (Advanced Surface Laser Ablation).

The cornea is reshaped directly on the surface during the surgery without creating a flap. If you engage in contact sports, PRK is the most suited option as it doesn’t have the risk of late flap dislodgement. If you have severely dry eyes or thin or unusually shaped corneas, PRK eye surgery might be the best option.


Cataract Surgery in Carlton

Cataract development is one of the most common reasons for visual impairment in older Australians. It is the clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens with age which causes insidious vision loss. It is not common among younger people, but diabetes or trauma can increase your risk of developing cataracts, and in some cases, it may be congenital.

Glare symptoms at night causing problems with night driving, blurred vision, difficulties reading, and difficulties seeing under low contrast or dim lighting conditions are common symptoms of cataracts.

If you are diagnosed with cataracts, cataract surgery in Carlton is the only option for treating the condition. During the 20-minute surgical procedure, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a new lens implant. The surgery not only restores your sight but may also eliminate the need for wearing glasses. Various lens implants are available, and your surgeon will determine the best one for you considering your visual needs and lifestyle.
