Learn Everything About the Basics of Lasik in Melbourne

Are you considering eye surgery LASIK in Melbourne? NewVision Clinics offers state-of-the-art LASIK procedures to improve your vision effectively. This blog discusses the basics of LASIK surgery and the general procedure at NewVision Clinics.

What is Eye Surgery LASIK?

LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) treats vision-related problems like short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. It involves using a laser to gently remove tissue from the eye and recontour the cornea.


At NewVision Clinics, the first step is consultation and assessment. Our team of experts will discuss your goals, review your health history, address questions or concerns, and examine your eyes to advise on the most appropriate treatment.

Surgery day

On the day of your LASIK surgery, wear loose clothing and avoid makeup. You can eat and drink as usual. Before the procedure you will be given the option of a mild relaxant, your eyes will be cleaned and local anaesthetic eye drops will be administered. The surgeon will create a small corneal flap and use a customised laser to remove corneal tissue and reshape the eye’s front surface. The entire LASIK procedure takes only 15 minutes for both eyes.


After the procedure, you may experience mild itching or burning and hazy vision, which is normal. Post-surgery care instructions will be provided and transparent eye shields will be provided overnight to prevent rubbing of the eyes. The day after surgery, you’ll return for a post-surgery eye exam with our experienced team to ensure your eyes are healthy and responding well to the treatment. After that, follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your vision.
