Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in Hawthorn

Today, more and more people are requiring prescription glasses or contact lenses from an early age, which has increased the demand for LASIK and PRK eye surgery across the country.

Laser vision correction eliminates your dependence on prescription glasses or contact lenses and gives you clear natural vision. Many people are comfortable with wearing glasses, but some struggle with it, especially those participating in active sports. Laser eye surgery is a life-changing procedure that allows you to enjoy life to the fullest without the hassles of visual aids.

With her special interest and extensive training in cataract, refractive and corneal surgery, Dr Joanne Goh is the most reliable name for laser eye surgery and cataract surgery in Hawthorn.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Hawthorn

LASIK eye surgery is able to correct a wide range of prescriptions in people who have long-sightedness, short-sightedness, and astigmatism.

LASIK surgery involves creating a flap, which is then lifted to reshape the cornea underneath for correcting prescriptions. The flap is put back down at the end of the procedure. The procedure is painless, and takes only a few minutes.

LASIK eye surgery has a short recovery time, and most patients are able to get back to their routine right from the very next day.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Hawthorn

PRK eye surgery is also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA). The procedure is entirely non-touch as the cornea is reshaped directly on the surface without creating a flap. 

Individuals not eligible for LASIK eye surgery may be recommended PRK eye surgery. FOr example, patients with unusually shaped or thin cornea are usually recommended PRK eye surgery. PRK surgery may also be a better alternative for those with severe dry eyes. People who engage in contact sports are also recommended for PRK eye surgery as there is no risk of late flap dislodgement.


Cataract Eye Surgery in Hawthorn

A cataract is the clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye. A person with cataracts will have blurred vision akin to looking through a frosted window. Cataract development is a normal part of the ageing process and therefore cataracts are common among older adults. Younger people may also develop cataracts due to other risk factors.

The common symptoms of cataracts are blurred vision, reading difficulties, difficulties driving at night due to glare symptoms, and difficulties in seeing in dim or low contrast light. The symptoms of cataracts are often insidious due to their gradual onset.

Surgery is the only option for treating cataracts. During the short procedure, the cloudy lens is replaced with a new lens implant. In many cases, along with restoring vision, the surgery eliminates the need to wear glasses. Various types of lens implants are available in the market, and your surgeon will select the most suitable one for you, considering your visual and lifestyle needs.
