WHY CHOOSE US?
30,000+ laser procedures by the one surgeon
NewVision Clinics provide expert ophthalmologist services in Melbourne, making it convenient for everyone to consult an eye specialist. We pride ourselves on using the latest technology.
LASIK is a surgical procedure that corrects refractive errors or the need for spectacles. A thin flap is created on the front surface of the eye so that a cool beam of light from an excimer laser can gently sculpt the corneal tissue into a new shape to correct the refractive error. The flap is then replaced and heals naturally and rapidly. Clear vision is restored almost instantaneously.
The entire LASIK eye treatment takes about 15-20 minutes and patients usually experience little or no discomfort using the Lasersight® process. Under normal circumstances you can have both eyes treated on the same day and quickly return to normal activities, with most people finding they have clear vision by the next morning. We have several clinics across the Melbourne suburbs, so there’s bound to be one close to you.
WHY NEW VISION CLINICS
LASIK Eye Surgery Procedure At-A-Glance
Anaesthetic and antibiotic eye drops are applied to the eye.
A very thin circular flap on the front surface of the cornea is created and gently folded back to expose the inner corneal tissue. The flap is hinged at one edge so it can be replaced.
Computer-controlled pulses of cool laser light are applied to the inner layers of the cornea to remove a precise pre-set amount of corneal tissue, reshaping the cornea and correcting the refractive error.
The surgeon gently replaces the flap and aligns it to its original position. It heals naturally and securely.
Following LASIK eye treatment, clear plastic shields are placed over the eyes for protection. This is to ensure that the eyes aren’t inadvertently bumped or rubbed. The healing process is very fast, but the shields are an added precaution and should be left on until removed at the post-operative appointment the following day.
Following LASIK eye treatment, vision recovery is rapid yet your eyes may feel light sensitive. We provide you with a pair of sunglasses for your journey home and for future use. There is typically little or no post-operative pain and you can usually return to work and other leisure activities within 24-48 hours of surgery.
