Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in Prahran

LASIK and PRK eye surgery are becoming increasingly popular in Australia as more people require glasses or contact lenses to correct vision problems. LASIK and PRK surgery in Prahran eliminates the need to wear vision aids and gives you naturally clear vision. Surgery is safe, effective, and has little downtime.

LASIK Eye Surgery in Prahran

LASIK eye surgery treats short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism and gives you freedom from wearing glasses and contact lenses. With LASIK Eye Surgery in Prahran, you can have clear vision within a day.

During the short surgery, a flap is created and lifted for reshaping the cornea underneath it. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down. Vision recovers almost immediately, allowing you to get back to your usual routine the very next day.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Prahran

Those who need vision correction and are not eligible for LASIK eye surgery will be recommended PRK eye surgery in Prahran. PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is also known as ASLA (Advanced Surface Laser Ablation), which involves reshaping the cornea to achieve vision correction without creating a flap. 

Your surgeon may recommend PRK eye surgery if you have a thin or unusually shaped corneas or if you suffer from severe dry eyes. The completely no-touch technique is also more suitable for people who engage in contact sports.


Cataract Eye Surgery in Prahran

Cataract development is a normal part of ageing. This is a condition where the eye’s natural crystalline lens is turns from a clear lens to a cloudy lens. Many older Australians require cataract surgery to restore vision that is lost from cataracts.


  • Blurred vision 
  • Difficulties reading 
  • Vision that cannot be improved with glasses or contact lenses
  • Glare symptoms at night causing difficulties with night driving
  • Difficulties seeing under low contrast/dim lighting conditions
  • Loss of ability to distinguish colour contrast

Cataract surgery takes only 20 minutes. During the procedure, the cloudy lens or cataract is replaced with a new lens implant. This lens implant not only restores your vision; in many cases, also eliminates the need to wear glasses. Different lens implants are available, and your surgeon will determine the best option for you, considering your visual and lifestyle needs.
