LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery is extremely popular in Australia due to the high prevalence of spectacle use and the advanced technology available here. Both types of surgeries reduce your dependency on glasses or contact lenses for naturally clear vision.

Laser vision correction involves using lasers to reshape the front surface of your eyes, allowing you to have naturally clear vision. If you are struggling with wearing glasses or contact lenses in your daily life, laser eye surgery is your answer. Whether you regularly engage in sports or need to work for hours in front of a computer screen, laser eye surgery allows you to achieve clear natural vision and enjoy your life to the fullest.

LASIK Eye Surgery in St Kilda

LASIK eye surgery can correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. The surgery is suitable for most people over 18 years of age and is the most popular form of laser eye surgery.

During the short surgical procedure, a flap is created and lifted to reshape the cornea underneath to correct your vision. At the end of the procedure, the flap is put back down. The painless treatment gives you full vision recovery as soon as the very next day.

Due to the short downtime, minimal discomfort, and fast recovery, LASIK eye surgery is highly popular in Australia. You can resume your usual activities the day after surgery.

PRK Laser Eye Surgery in St Kilda

PRK surgery is an entirely non-touch procedure as there is no need to create a flap like in LASIK. The cornea is reshaped directly on the surface, and the procedure is also known as advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA).

PRK Eye Surgery Is An Alternative for Those Not Eligible for LASIK:

  • PRK is more suitable for people who have thin or unusually shaped corneas.
  • It is also recommended for patients with severe dry eyes.
  • If you engage in contact sports, PRK may be a better option as there is no risk of late flap dislodgement.

Cataract Eye Surgery in St Kilda

The clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens causes development of cataracts, which typically develops gradually over years, but in some cases may also present rapidly over weeks or months. It is common among older Australians, but younger adults can also develop it due to other risk factors.

Having cataracts feels like looking through cloudy windows. Other symptoms include difficulties reading, blurred vision, difficulties driving at night due to glare, and difficulties seeing under dim lighting conditions.

Surgery is the safest and only option for treating cataracts. During the 20 minute procedure, the surgeon removes the cloudy lens and replaces it with a new artificial lens. It not only restores clear vision, but in many cases, it can eliminate the need to wear glasses. Your surgeon will recommend the best option for you, considering your eye health, visual needs and lifestyle.
