Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in Port Melbourne

LASIK and PRK eye surgery is becoming increasingly popular as more people are becoming spectacle dependent from an early age. Laser eye surgery gives you naturally clear vision and permanent freedom from wearing prescription glasses and contact lenses.

Laser eye surgery is an advanced procedure that eliminates your dependence on glasses. It’s a life-changing procedure for individuals struggling with wearing glasses and contact lenses in their daily lives.

Dr Joanne Goh is a specialist cataract, refractive and corneal surgeon. With years of surgical experience, she is one of the most reliable surgeons for laser eye surgery and cataract surgery in Port Melbourne.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Port Melbourne

LASIK eye surgery corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. During the surgery, a flap is created and then lifted for reshaping the cornea underneath to correct for your prescription. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down.

Most patients see very well by the next day and are able to resume their usual activities. LASIK is the most popular option for vision correction due to its short downtime, minimal discomfort, and fast visual recovery.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Port Melbourne

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA), does not involve creating a flap like LASIK. Instead, the laser reshaping ablation is performed directly on the surface of the cornea, in a single step no-touch technique.

Advantages of PRK Eye Surgery

  • PRK eye surgery is more suitable for people with thin or unusually shaped cornea.
  • Patients with severe dry eyes may be more suited to PRK surgery.
  • As there is no risk of late flap dislodgement, PRK is a better alternative for those who engage in some contact sports.

Cataract Eye Surgery in Port Melbourne

Clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye is known as a cataract. A cataract usually develops over a period of time, therefore its symptoms are often insidious, although some people may notice more rapid visual deterioration. It is a normal part of ageing and common among older adults. Younger adults may develop cataracts due to other risk factors such as diabetes, use of steroid medications, previous eye trauma, or family history of early onset cataracts.

Some symptoms of cataracts include:

  • Blurred vision or clouding of vision 
  • Increasing difficulties seeing 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 painless 20 minutes procedure, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a new lens implant. In many cases, along with complete vision restoration, the surgery eliminates the need to wear glasses. Today, different types of lens implants are available on the market, and your surgeon chooses the most suitable one for you, considering your visual and lifestyle needs.
