Vision correction procedures

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.

CustomVue LASIK

CustomVue Lasik vision correction involves a personal and unique laser vision correction that is designed for each eye individually. Much like in the case of a fingerprint, each individual’s vision is completely unique to their set of eyes.

CustomVue PRK

Since 1993, when the first laser refractive surgery was performed in Cape Town, refractive eye laser surgery has developed in leaps and bounds, and laser vision correction is safer, more stable and more predictable today with the CustomVue Individualized Laser Vision Correction by VISX.

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.

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. We can replace certain layers of the cornea individually, depending on where the disease is.

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. We can treat diabetic eye disease with lasers.

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.

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. We use laser treatments and stent implants to lower eye pressure associated with glaucoma.

Keratoconus

DMEK is a partial-thickness cornea transplant procedure that involves selective removal of the patient’s Descemet membrane and endothelium, followed by transplantation of donor corneal endothelium and Descemet membrane without additional stromal tissue from the donor.

Multifocal Intraocular lens Implant

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

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.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia Treatment creates a multifocal cornea and is an attractive option to make you less dependant on reading glasses.

Retinal Surgery

An Epi-Retinal Membrane is a cellophane-like membrane that forms over the macula. We do Macular Hole or Retinal Detachment surgeries. Vitrectomy For Floaters – We check if light flashes occur or floaters appear. It may be retinal detachment and laser for floaters maybe need or intraocular surgery, called Vitrectomy.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is the name given to certain conditions affecting the retina, which causes loss of central vision. Injections or laser is sometimes needed.
