LASIK Eye Surgery in South Yarra:

LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery for correcting a wide range of prescriptions, including short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. 

LASIK is painless and has a short downtime. Vision recovery is very quick, with patients seeing very well and resuming their usual activities by the next day.

The first part of the 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. 

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in South Yarra:

PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy) laser eye surgery is also known as ASLA ( Advanced Surface Laser Ablation), which involves reshaping the cornea directly on the surface without creating a flap. If you are not suited for LASIK eye surgery, you may be recommended PRK laser eye surgery.

PRK eye surgery is recommended if you suffer from severe dry eyes or if you have thin or unusually shaped corneas. It is also a better option if you engage in contact sports as it doesn’t have the risk of late flap dislodgement.


Cataract Surgery in South Yarra:

Visual impairment in older Australians due to cataracts is very common. Cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens with age which results in insidious loss of vision. 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. 

Symptoms of cataracts are blurred vision, difficulties reading, glare symptoms at night causing problems with night driving, and difficulties seeing under low contrast/dim lighting conditions. 

Cataract Surgery in South Yarra is your only and best option if you are diagnosed with cataracts. During surgery the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a lens implant. The painless 20-minute procedure not only restores your sight but may also eliminate the need for wearing glasses. Several lens implants are available on the market, and your surgeon will determine the best option for you, considering your visual needs and lifestyle.
