|A Lifetime of Vision|
LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) is the most widely accepted method of correcting the refractive errors - shortsightedness and/or astigmatism - enabling people freedom from glasses. LASIK works by reshaping the co rnea so that it is focusing onto the retina without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
The LASIK procedure - we use a specially designed microkeratome to create a flap of tissue on the front of the cornea. The flap is then lifted to allow the access to the cornea. The cornea is then reshaped by removing layers of tissue to meet the refractive requirements of the patient.
After the laser treatment is completed the flap is then carefully repositioned over the newly contoured cornea. Almost immediately the flap adheres to the underlying tissue, eliminating the need for any sutures.
This results in a faster healing response and visual stability, enabling most patients' good functional vision the next day.
Brendan Wong Haymarket, Sydney
"I had laser eye surgery approximately 3 years ago now, and have been extremely happy with the results. It was one of the best things I have and could ever do for myself in terms of health and well-being.
Though contacts are good, I can't believe I didn't get the surgery done earlier. My vision after the surgery was considerably better than with contacts previously."
