How to safely and effectively get rid of your glasses or contact lenses

After a 40-year track record, laser eye surgery has established itself as one of the most successful elective treatments in the world

LASEK

LASEK is a type of laser eye surgery, often used as an alternative treatment for those who are not suitable for LASIK eye surgery. LASEK may not be suitable for you if you have a high prescription, very high astigmatism or even keratoconus.

LASIK

LASIK is the most common form of laser vision correction. It’s a safe and effective treatment for short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. The effects of LASIK are permanent and the results are outstanding.

ReLEx® SMILE

ReLEx® SMILE works similarly to LASIK but is a less-invasive, keyhole treatment. SMILE also offers more comfort, a faster recovery and less chance of dry eye after the procedure.

PRESBYOND ®

PRESBYOND ®, also known as “laser blended vision” is a laser vision correction treatment aimed at treating presbyopia and other refractive errors. PRESBYOND enables you the opportunity to read again without reading glasses and see clearly at a distance.

IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENSES (ICL)

If you are one of the rare patients for whom laser eye surgery is not suitable, ICL lens implants offer a safe and extremely accurate option to free you from needing glasses. This option is particularly suitable for you if the shape/thickness of cornea makes you ineligible for laser eye surgery; or, if you are so short- or long-sighted that you are out of the treatable prescription range with laser eye surgery.

LENS REPLACEMENT (RLE)

Lens replacement or Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is an advanced form of vision correction surgery which we use to treat patients over 50 years of age who need glasses for both distance and for reading.

The advantage of ICL surgery over refractive lens exchange surgery is that the patients retain the natural focusing ability of the eye, called the accommodation.

REFRACTIVE CATARACT SURGERY

SMILE works similarly to LASIK but is a less-invasive, keyhole treatment. While SMILE can be safer for some, you’re likely considering ICL because SMILE is not suitable for you.

COMPLEX CATARACT SURGERY

SMILE works similarly to LASIK but is a less-invasive, keyhole treatment. While SMILE can be safer for some, you’re likely considering ICL because SMILE is not suitable for you.

CORNEAL CROSS-LINKING

If another eye health professional or we have given you a keratoconus diagnosis, then you should consider corneal collagen cross-linking. Cross-linking is a proven method of strengthening and stabilising the cornea that can prevent your keratoconus worsening.

Cross-linking does not correct your vision, but it stabilises your prescription and affords you the option of undergoing further sight correction to remove the need to wear glasses.
