LASIK Eye Surgery in Southbank

LASIK Eye Surgery in Southbank is safe, effective and gives freedom from prescription glasses and contact lenses. Whether you need treatment for short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism, LASIK eye surgery effectively treats a range of vision problems. 

The surgery involves creating a flap and lifting it to reshape the cornea underneath for vision correction. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down. The procedure is painless and patients can expect full vision recovery the very next day.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in Southbank

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is also known as ASLA (Advanced Surface Laser Ablation). Like LASIK, this procedure also involves reshaping your cornea to correct your vision. However, unlike LASIK, PRK eye surgery is a completely a no-touch technique where there is no need for creating a flap. 

You will be recommended PRK surgery in Southbank if you have thin or unusually shaped corneas. Patients with severe dry eye conditions may also be better suited for PRK surgery. It’s also a better option for sportsmen who engage in contact sports.


Cataract Surgery in Southbank

As we age, the natural lens in the eye starts to turn brown and cloudy and this reduces the sharpness and clarity of vision. The cloudy lens is known as a cataract. Surgery is the only treatment for cataracts. 

Some of the common symptoms of cataracts are:

  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulties in reading
  • Problems in driving at night due to glare
  • Light sensitivity

During the twenty minute surgical procedure, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a lens implant, correcting your vision, and in many cases, eliminating the need for wearing spectacles. Different types of lens implants are available in the market, and discussion with your surgeon will decide the most suitable option for your visual needs and lifestyle.
