Several factors are used to assess your suitability for treatment, these include your age (usually over 20), your vision (preferably unchanged for the previous 12 months), the health of your eyes (free of any eye disease) and your general health. It is also preferable that you are not pregnant.
If you are not suitable for LASIK, there are now many other excellent options available please discuss with our doctors.
For both eyes, the whole procedure takes about 10 minutes per eye, but you will be at the centre for a few hours to ensure all pre and post-operative checks have been completed.
In most cases, you can go back to work the day after your procedure. Most patients regain 90% of their vision within 24 hours however you can expect to notice improvements and minor fluctuations over the next few weeks.
For most people, you can resume driving the next day. We would recommend you do not drive for a day or two after surgery.
Each pair of eyes is unique and LASIK isn’t suitable for everyone. Typically we say no to 1 in 5 patients because our patients safety is our number 1 priority. Several factors are used to assess your suitability for treatment, these include:
Your eyes will need to be examined thoroughly to determine your suitability and to enable an accurate assessment of the correct procedure for your eyes.
LASIK prices vary from clinic to clinic across Australia. Here's a brief breakdown:
Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology) technology is now available in Australia
The PersonalEYES team of experienced eye surgeons is excited to be the first to offer the ground- breaking Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology) which provides a breakthrough method of measuring and combining data to generate a multidimensional model of the eye for truly individualised laser eye treatment; increasing the likelihood of super vision (better than 20/20).
Associate Professor Chandra Bala, (Refractive, Cataract and Corneal Surgery) reports this technology will underpin the next generation of laser eye surgery, providing significant benefits to their patients with diverse diagnoses.
“There will be improvement for patients in diagnostics, treatment and results. For the first time, a mathematical model of the eye’s optics with four refractive elements/interfaces is created rather than the current single refractive element model, to create a more accurate treatment to improve the focus of the eye,” says Associate Professor Bala. “With Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology), we can now measure the wavefront of the entire eye, corneal topography, corneal back surface, and biometric data including corneal thickness, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, and ocular length,” he explains.
From these measurements, the front and back surfaces of the cornea are mapped and the remaining element, the front surface of the lens, is calculated iteratively using ray tracing. This ‘eyevatar’ then becomes the theoretical model of the individual eye, which is then used to devise the recommended treatment. This is the most realistic eye model available to date.
While both LASIK and SMILE can achieve the 20/20 standard of vision, the goal of modern laser treatment is to go beyond 20/20 capability. In order to achieve this, an individual’s eye must be capable of excellent resolution and the treatment has to be nuanced and customised for that eye. Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology) makes this possible by not only measuring multiple elements of the eye but also by factoring in the misalignment of the natural elements. The treatments are applied to a precision of 1/100,000 of a millimeter.
Our experience with this technology shows that 25 percent of patients see one line better than they ever saw with glasses, with ninety percent of patients able to achieve 20/15 or better*. With the Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology), Associate Professor Chandra Bala has performed over 1000 cases and published a journal article highlighting the results of 400 eyes he performed over 2 years ago using the Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology).
The commercial version of the Wavelight Plus (Innoveyes Ray Technology) is now available across all PersonalEYES clinics across NSW and ACT. For all consultation queries and appointments, contact 1300 683 937 or visit www.personaleyes.com.au
When it comes to eye surgery, LASIK procedures are by far the most popular and suggested option. Lasik eye surgery is ideal for correcting a wide variety of conditions such as blurred vision, double vision, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatisms....
