Considering laser eye surgery?
There are three types of laser vision correction performed to correct a refractive error: LASIK, ASLA and SMILE. If you're considering a vision correction procedure, the first step is to book a consultation to find out whether or not you're suitable for laser eye surgery. If you're between the ages of 18 and 45, and have had a stable prescription for at least two years, most likely you'll be suitable for laser.
A cataract is when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy, leading to a gradual loss of vision. Cataract surgery is the most common operation in the developed world, and Eye Specialist Institute's cataract surgeons are amongst the most experienced in Australia.
