LASIK Laser Eye Surgery Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

LASIK Laser Eye Surgery

LASIK is the most common refractive procedure performed to correct short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) & astigmatism.

PRK/Trans-PRK Laser Eye Surgery Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

PRK Laser Eye Surgery

PRK involves re-shaping your cornea in the same way as LASIK, except that the laser ablation is done on the surface of the cornea, unlike LASIK where it is performed under a flap.

Cataract Surgery & Laser Assisted Surgery Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne.

Cataract Surgery & Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

If a cataract causes visual symptoms that interfere with your life, cataract eye surgery removes the cloudy lens & replaces it with a clear, artificial lens that can significantly improve the quality of your vision.

Multifocal Enhanced Depth of Focus (EDoF) Lenses Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Multifocal & Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) Lenses

Selecting the correct intraocular lens (IOL) is one of the most important decisions in refractive lens exchange and cataract surgery. Different IOLs are available today to accommodate the specific needs of each individual. Learn more about which one might be suitable for you.

Monovision Lenses Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne


In monovision, intraocular lenses of different powers are implanted in each eye so that one eye (typically the dominant eye) is corrected for distance vision & the other eye for near vision.

Refractive Lens Exchange Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

When a clear lens rather than a cloudy lens (i.e. a cataract) is removed for the purpose of reducing your dependence on glasses, the procedure is referred to as a refractive lens exchange.

Implantable Contact Lenses Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)

An implantable collamer lens, also known as an implantable contact lens, is a refractive lens implant that is implanted into the eye to correct short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) & astigmatism.

Pterygium Surgery by Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium surgery involves removing the pterygium and covering the defect with a piece of normal conjunctiva harvested from under your eyelid.

Kerarings for Keratonconus Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Keratoconus Treatment Options

When glasses or contact lenses alone do not provide adequate vision correction, treatment options include laser treatment combined with cross-linking, intracorneal rings (Kerarings), implantable collamer lenses & corneal transplantation.

Corneal Cross-linking treatment for Keratocunus.

Corneal Cross-Linking

Medicare funded eye correction surgery for keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration and post-LASIK ectasia. Corneal cross-linking treatment strengthens the cornea, which in turn stops progression of the disease and stabilizes vision.

Corneal Transplantation by Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Corneal Transplantation

Modern corneal transplantation replaces only the layer of the cornea that is affected by the disease process, allowing us to preserve the healthy, unaffected parts of the cornea.

Phototherapeutic Keratectomy Laser Eye Surgery Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

Phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK)

Phototherapeutic keratectomy is a type of laser eye surgery used to treat conditions affecting the superficial layers of the cornea.

YAG Capsulotomy by Dr Joanne Goh Melbourne

YAG Capsulotomy

After cataract surgery, the thin, clear membrane (capsular bag) that holds the intraocular lens may thicken & become cloudy with time. This can be treated by making an opening in the capsule using a YAG laser.
