LASIK Eye Surgery in Kew

LASIK eye surgery treats short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. It involves creating and lifting a flap to reshape the cornea underneath for correcting prescriptions. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down. The procedure has a short downtime and causes minimal discomfort to the patient.

The procedure takes only a few minutes and has a fast recovery time. Most patients achieve excellent vision the next day and are able to resume usual activities.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Kew

PRK stands for Photorefractive Keratectomy, also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA). The cornea is reshaped directly on the surface during the procedure without creating a flap.

Advantages of PRK Eye Surgery

  • It’s a better alternative for those with unusually shaped or thin corneas.
  • People with severe dry eyes may be more suited for PRK eye surgery.
  • It’s preferred for the individuals who engage in some contact sports as there is no risk of late flap dislodgement.

Cataract Eye Surgery in Kew

A cataract is the clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye, which makes the person feel like they are looking through frosted glass, making images seem less crisp and vivid. It’s a part of the normal ageing process and common among older adults. Younger adults may also develop it due to other risk factors such as diabetes, trauma and steroid use.

Blurred vision, difficulties in reading, difficulties driving at night due to glare symptoms, and difficulties in seeing in dim lighting conditions are common symptoms of cataracts. These symptoms are generally insidious due to their gradual onset.

Cataract surgery is the only option for treating the condition. During the 20 minutes procedure, the cloudy lens is replaced with a new lens implant. It not only restores your vision but may also eliminate your dependence on glasses. Different types of lens implants are available on the market, and your surgeon will determine the most suitable one for you depending on your visual and lifestyle needs.
