Laser Eye Surgery and Cataract Surgery in South Melbourne

Today, the number of Australians looking for laser eye surgery to achieve freedom from wearing prescription glasses and contact lenses is higher than ever. 

With the availability of advanced surgical equipment and technology, LASIK, PRK, and cataract surgeries are now very popular procedures for people looking for naturally clear vision and spectacle independence. With their busy and active lifestyles, more and more people are turning to vision correction procedures to rid themselves of the inconvenience of glasses and contact lenses. For laser eye surgery in South Melbourne, you can consult Dr Joanne Goh at her modern clinic which is fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology.

LASIK Eye Surgery in South Melbourne

LASIK eye surgery can correct a wide range of prescriptions, such as short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. This surgery has minimal downtime, with patients seeing clearly and resuming their daily activities the very next day.

When you choose Dr Joanne Goh for LASIK eye surgery in South Melbourne, you get a personalised treatment plan according to your specific vision requirements. 

The first part of LASIK surgery involves creating a flap. This flap is then lifted and the cornea underneath it is reshaped to correct for your prescription. At the end of the procedure the flap is put back down. As the surface of the eye is left almost intact at the end of the procedure, vision recovery is very quick.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in South Melbourne

You may be recommended for PRK Eye Surgery in South Melbourne for vision correction if you are not eligible for LASIK. This surgery involves using a no-touch technique for reshaping the cornea without creating a flap.

PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy) laser eye surgery, also known as ASLA (Advanced Surface Laser Ablation), is recommended to those who have thin or unusually shaped corneas, or if you suffer from dry eyes or engage in contact sports as it doesn’t carry the risk of late flap dislodgement. 


Cataract Eye Surgery in South Melbourne

Cataract development is the commonest cause of visual impairment in older Australians. In this condition, the eye’s natural crystalline lens becomes yellow and cloudy, which can only be corrected by surgery. Cataracts are less commonly seen in younger people but when they occur they can either be congenital or associated with risk factors such as diabetes, trauma or steroid use. 

Blurred vision, difficulties reading, glare symptoms at night causing problems with night driving, and difficulties seeing under low contrast/dim lighting conditions are common symptoms of cataracts. These symptoms often go unnoticed by the patient due to their slow and gradual onset. 

If you are diagnosed with cataract, surgery is your best option. Cataract surgery takes only 20 minutes, where your surgeon Dr Joanne Goh removes the cloudy lens and replaces it with a lens implant. This painless procedure not only restores your vision, it may also eliminate the need to wear glasses. There are many lens implants available on the market, and your surgeon determines the best option for you taking your visual needs and lifestyle into consideration.
