Be honest… How confident are you with your ability to choose a vision correction specialist?

Anxious? Worried? Confused? Frustrated?

Well, if you said anything other than, “100% confident”, you’ve come to the right place. Assuming you want vision correction, you’re searching websites, visiting the forums, reading patient reviews, comparing claims, and trying to figure this all out on your own.

You’re busy. And you’re trying hard. But are you getting any closer to the right decision for you?

Are you 100% confident about your vision correction treatment plan?

When I asked this question of my patients before they saw me, I didn’t like the answer.

That’s why I chose the independent path to offer a service where I personally see every patient before I treat them. Not only that, but I spend as much time as necessary to address every question to ensure you are fully confident that you’ll get the results you seek. And, if for any reason I’m not 100% confident that you’ll get what you’re looking for after treatment, I’ll be the first person to tell you.

So, if you’re looking for someone to guide you toward everything you want after vision correction surgery, give me a call.

My mission

Resorting and improving sight is personal for me. Aged 10, I experienced my great aunt have surgery for advanced cataracts. Witnessing the life-changing impact of cataract surgery inspired me to study medicine and then ophthalmology so that I could help people to achieve better vision.

The technology to correct poor sight, whether caused by cataract, long-sightedness, short-sightedness or astigmatism is now highly evolved. The majority of people continue to struggle with their vision because of fear and anxiety about undergoing treatment. The variety of clinics that offer a plethora of different treatments which can make the process very confusing.

My approach is to alleviate the fear and anxiety involved in vision correction surgery, both before and during the treatment. Rather than worrying patients unnecessarily about factors that are irrelevant to them, I provide patients with simple recommendations about the best treatment for their particular circumstance.

During surgery itself, my focus is as much on patient comfort and calmness as it is on ensuring perfect surgical technique. Possibly the most common compliment my team and I receive is patients saying how simple, calm and stress-free the whole process is which is a testimony to our focus on the patients’ experience.

My goal is to offer a straight-forward, reassuring and stress-free approach to help overcome the anxieties about vision correction surgery so that patients with cataract or who want to be glasses-free can experience this life-changing surgery.
