At personsonalEYES safety is our number one priority. We are continually upgrading the technology to attain the best outcome. Our goal is to achieve the best vision possible. LASIK procedures are performed onsite in our state-of-the-art facilities in Sydney and Canberra.
Contoura® Vision is the only treatment to precisely map 22,000 elevation points of the cornea to create a customised treatment unique to your vision correction.
More data means more accurate results - that's why we use the most detailed software available.
The process involves identifying irregular elevation points on the eye which can disrupt the light entering and prevent optimal vision.

Depending on your particular requirements, your surgeon will suggest the best procedure for you. Here are some of the options that will be considered:
Bladeless LASIK works by creating a flap on the cornea and then reshaping the cornea under the flap.
The first step is to use a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser to create an ultra-thin corneal flap. In seconds, over a million computer-controlled pulses of laser light are delivered to the cornea. The beam passes harmlessly through the outer layers of the cornea until it reaches its exact focal point. Once at the pre-determined depth of the cornea, the laser produces a series of tiny gas bubbles which join together to create the flap.
SMILE is a relatively new form of laser eye surgery. It draws parallels to LASIK, with the same goals of cornea alteration to improve eyesight. However, where LASIK involves the cutting of the corneal flap with an excimer laser, SMILE does the same thing, without the flap.
Essentially what happens with SMILE, is that the surgeon, using a femtosecond laser, removes tissue inside your cornea, without having to cut the surface in order to gain access. It is as minimally invasive to your cornea, as possible.
ASLA Laser Eye Surgery
ASLA Laser Eye Surgery or Advanced Surface Laser Ablation was the first excimer laser procedure prior to the development of LASIK.
ASLA involves applying the laser beam directly onto the surface of the cornea once the outer layer, the epithelium, has been removed, rather than under a corneal flap as in LASIK.
It may be associated with some discomfort and longer visual recovery than LASIK but it causes less thinning of the cornea and is occasionally preferable to LASIK in lower degrees of refractive error.
ICL Eye Surgery
ICL Eye Surgery is like inserting the patient’s own glasses or contact lenses inside the eye. The Phakic ICL is designed to reside inside your eye where the natural lens is still intact.
The lens does not alter any structures within the eye or on the cornea and can easily be removed or replaced if required.
Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) are ideal for patients with symptoms of myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness) and/or astigmatism. ICL’s are also suitable for patients whose corneas are too thin, too flat or too steep to undergo large amounts of laser reshaping required for LASIK.
