LASIK

Lasik operations can be used to treat a wide range of vision errors. Although postoperative results may vary, most patients are able to pass a drivers license test without their glasses or contact lenses afterwards.

iLasik (femto-Lasik)

iLasik (femto-Lasik) is an advanced, blade-free refractive eye surgery which is used to correct refractive errors including hyperopia (far sightedness), myopia (short sightedness) and astigmatism.

Cataracts

Over half the people over the age of 65 have some degree of cataract development and most cases can be treated with cataract eye surgery.

Keratoconus Treatment

Keratoconus is a condition in which the shape of the cornea, which is usually round, is shaped like a rugby ball, developing a cone-shaped bulge, resulting in diminished vision.

Implantable contact lens (ICL)

The ICL is implanted behind the iris, in front of the natural lens of the eye. The operation is similar to a cataract operation except that the natural lens of the eye is left in place.

Corneal Grafts

Using a Femtosecond laser results in a faster recovery of best corrected visual acuity and less induced astigmatism when compared to the conventional blade trephination incision.

Multifocal Intra-Ocular Lens Implant

Multifocal Intraocular lenses are becoming increasingly popular as today’s active seniors who undergo cataract surgery become increasingly demanding of improved results.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is the name given to certain conditions affecting the retina, which causes loss of central vision.

Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetic eye disease is a comprehensive term used to describe a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of their illness.

Glaucoma

If your doctor recently told you that you have glaucoma, you may be wondering what that means, what glaucoma treatment entails and how it can affect your sight.

Presbyopia

Presby-Lasik creates a multifocal cornea and is an attractive option to make you less dependant on reading glasses.

Vitreolysis Laser for Floaters

Also known as floater laser treatment, vitreolysis is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure that can eliminate the visual disturbances caused by floaters.

Retinal Surgery

An Epi-Retinal Membrane is a cellophane-like membrane that forms over the macula.

Flexivue Lens Implant

Do you have difficulty reading fine print, have eye strain when reading or does your vision blur when transitioning between near and far distances? If so, you could have a condition called presbyopia.

Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment (IRPL)

Dry eye syndrome is a common pathology affecting between 5 and 15% of the population with symptoms increasing with age.
