Why choose us?
Latest Technology & Expertise
At NewVision Clinics we provide our teams with the latest and best resources in laser eye surgery technology as the industry evolves. We’re constantly refining our laser treatments to give you the best outcomes available.
Of course, in addition to using the latest, proven technology, the laser eye surgeon’s expertise is critical after surgery are equally important factors affecting final vision outcomes.

What is Excimer laser technology?
An Excimer Laser combines two gases, Argon and Fluorine, to form energy on a wavelength of 193 nanometers. This wavelength causes a process called photoablation. Each laser pulse removes approximately 0.25 microns of tissue – that’s one thousandth of a millimeter, which is the same as removing 1/2000th of a human hair in four billionths of a second.
The world’s most advanced laser eye surgery technology
Our available laser vision correction techniques are employed using two of the world’s most advanced laser machines.
The VisX STAR S4
With a reputation of dependability and performance the VisX STAR S4 represents one of the most advanced laser technology platforms available today.
Using WaveScan-based digital technology it diagnoses and measures imperfections in your eyes more precisely than standard methods. Its software can then translate the information into a set of wavefront custom treatment instructions for the laser – meaning the patient’s surgery is accurately tailored to their specific needs when surface imperfections might apply.
The Schwind Amaris 1050 RS (East Melbourne)
WaveScan technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduced distortions when viewing distant objects in space. This technology has now been applied to laser vision correction, measuring imperfections in the eye not measured using standard methods for glasses and contact lenses alone.
Professor Alpins works with most topography diagnostic companies and lasers.
Experience enhanced results with exclusive Advanced VSS Vector Planning
NewVision are the only clinics in Australia to use the latest VisX laser eye surgery technology VSS that gives exceptional results in visual outcomes.
The majority of our treatment planning uses Professor Alpins’ patented vector planning software. This takes into account the patient’s astigmatism in their prescription and the shape of their cornea, as well as a manifest refraction to calculate the best outcome. The combination of using the patients’ prescription and the corneal astigmatism (the shape of the cornea) gives patient’s optimised results.
In 1993 Professor Alpins revolutionised the way surgeons plan, develop and analyse laser eye surgery by developing “The Alpins Method of Astigmatism Analysis“.
His patented method is used by surgeons around the world and is now commercially available as the software program ASSORT (‘Alpins Statistical System for Ophthalmic Refractive Surgery Techniques‘).
The groundbreaking astigmatism and other refractive errors.
These latest generation instruments incorporate the best in technology to bring each NewVision patient the best in care.
Of course, technology is only a means to an end, helping us in preparing accurate personalised treatment profiles combined with surgical skills and experience. You need a highly skilled and experienced laser eye surgeon to deliver the best outcomes. Professor Alpins leads the way in Australian refractive laser eye surgery, meaning NewVision patients can expect the best treatment and the most successful outcomes.
If you’ve been told that laser eye surgery cannot help you it’s possible that NewVision can.
