LASIK Laser Eye Surgery in Glen Iris

LASIK eye surgery corrects short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. It’s one of the most popular laser eye surgeries for vision correction.

During the surgery, a flap is created and lifted to reshape the cornea underneath to correct for your prescription. At the end of this painless procedure, the flap is put back down. Patients can expect visual recovery from the very next day and can resume their usual daily activities.

The short downtime, minimum discomfort, and rapid visual recovery make LASIK eye surgery the most preferred treatment for vision correction.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Glen Iris

If you are not eligible for LASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK ) eye surgery is the best option. It is also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA), as it involves reshaping the cornea directly on the surface without creating a flap. It is a completely non-touch technique.

PRK is a very good alternative for people who have a thin or unusually shaped cornea who may not be suitable for LASIK. Patients with severe dry eye problems can also achieve clear natural vision with PRK. As the surgery does not involve the risk of late flap dislodgement, it is also ideal for people who engage in certain contact sports.


Cataract Eye Surgery in Glen Iris

A cataract is one of the most common problems that older Australians face. It is the clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens, which is a normal part of aging. Younger patients may also develop cataracts due to risk factors such as diabetes, trauma, or steroid use.

Patients with cataracts have blurred vision like they are looking through a cloudy window. They may also experience discomfort while driving at night due to the glare. Other symptoms include difficulties reading and seeing under dim lighting conditions.

Cataract surgery is the most reliable and only option for eliminating these symptoms. Surgery takes only around 20 minutes which involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a new lens implant. It not only restores your sight but may also remove your need to wear glasses. Today, there are different types of implants available on the market. Your surgeon will determine the most suitable one for you, considering your visual needs and lifestyle.
