What We Do
What we do….
During your appointment our optometrist will thoroughly assess your eyes. A vast majority of our patients in recent years have undergone PRK surgery due to it being the safest surgery for active lifestyles.
How we do it better…
Every procedure is individually customised to each and every eye. No two eyes are the same and customised treatment ensures the best possible outcome. The NIDEK Quest Laser that we use has unique parameters that enhance the quality of the vision achieved after surgery. The laser ablation profiles, repetition rate and pulse frequency make previous complications, such as haloes and haze, a thing of the past.
The surgery takes about 10 minutes per eye. Some of the eye drops we use may sting, though no more than sweat in the eye.
It is recommended to have 3 days of rest afterwards. You may need to have 4-5 days off work.
LASER EYE SURGERY
IMAGINE THE FREEDOM OF NO GLASSES OR CONTACTS
We have been performing Laser eye surgery at Queensland Laser Vision for over 29 years. We are very good at what we do. A complimentary, comprehensive assessment will determine the most appropriate customised surgery to give you the best possible outcome.
Imagine waking up and seeing with 20/20 vision! No fumbling for glasses or fussing with contact lenses. Do your gym workouts, yoga class, walk the dog or swim with your children without your eyesight holding you back.
PRK is still regarded as the safest Laser procedure to undertake, especially for active lifestyles. PRK is suitable for most eyes and can cater for eyes not advisable for LASIK. It’s a virtually touchless surgery and gives the same results as Lasik or SMILE. Gain your sense of freedom and accomplish your goals with visual clarity.
SMILE or not to SMILE? The outcomes are still pending.
The SMILE procedure is relatively new and not widely embraced by surgeons worldwide.
SMILE involves creating a small lens shaped piece of tissue within the cornea which is manually removed.
IS SMILE LASER EYE SURGERY BETTER?
Smile surgery has minimal downtime but slower visual recovery. So far, the range of prescriptions SMILE can treat are limited, and accuracy is questionable. SMILE is very surgeon dependant requiring lots of procedures to master.
Our surgeons are committed to performing the most appropriate surgery techniques to give you the best possible result.
