FAQs

  • Does my health insurance cover the procedure?

    Many refractive surgery procedures are not covered under private health insurance and Medicare. Costs and possible rebates are always fully discussed on the day of your consultation.

  • I don't have any health insurance; do you have a payment plan?

    Yes, we have a payment plan with Certegy Ezipay. For terms and conditions, please speak to our bookings staff.

  • What is wavefront analysis and custom corneal ablation?

    Improvements in technology and instrumentation in refractive surgery have allowed much more refined definition of focal imperfections in the eye (wavefront analysis) and more refined reshaping of the cornea for correction (custom corneal ablation). We have the latest technology in our centre for carrying out these processes.

  • What happens if I look around during the laser treatment?

    Many patients worry that their eye will move involuntarily during the treatment. The Schwind Amaris Laser compensates for any movements of the eye using the six dimensional active eye trackers, unique to this Laser. The tracker registers eye movements 1050 times per second. This means that the tracker is than 30 percent faster than the laser pulses. This allows perfect positioning of each laser spot.

  • How much time will I need to take off work?

    Most people do not go to work the day after Lasik surgery. Following surface laser ablation (PRK / LASEK) we advise one week off work.

  • Will I have to stop wearing contact lenses before the operation?

    It is desirable that use of soft contact lenses cease a few days prior to you consultation and surgery. Hard or rigid contact lenses need to be removed at least 2 weeks prior. If you are unsure of what to do our staff can advise you further.

  • What is monovision?

    Monovision or blended vision, is when one eye's focus is set for distance and the other for near. The brain blends the vision to give a good overall visual outcome. This method of correction greatly reduces the need for glasses and can be achieved using Lasik, PRK , lens exchange or cataract surgery.

  • Why would someone not be a good candidate?

    There are a number of reasons, they include their prescription is either too high, or their corneas are too thin, or their eyes are too dry. Another reason being they have an underlying corneal condition that prevents them from having laser eye surgery. All of these conditions are determined on a one-to-one basis during your comprehensive one hour assessment with our team of Orthoptist/Surgeons.

  • How do i know which procedure will suit me?

    As there are a variety of refractive procedures available, the procedure best suited to your individual eyes ad needs will be determined after a thorough assessment with special instrumentation and counseling about your visual requirements.

  • Will I feel any pain during the procedure?

    There is a very high margin of safety and remarkable freedom from discomfort with these procedures. You may experience some post-operative discomfort which is managed by eye drops and medications.
