Laser eye surgery

Laser eye surgery is one of our most popular types of surgery and is seen as a highly desirable alternative to glasses and contact lenses. It is performed using precision type lasers which reshape the cornea of the eye, resulting in normal vision. Examples of laser eye surgery include LASIK, LASEK, Intralase and PRK.

Safety is of paramount concern at our clinics and we strictly adhere to industry-led guidelines, ensuring that your surgery is carried out to the highest standards. You are free to ask questions at any stage of your treatment which will be answered openly and honestly.
