Lens Surgery – Am I Suitable?

Book a FREE Consultation


Due to the highly specialised nature of intraocular lens procedures it is only possible to assess if you are suitable for intraocular lens treatment by inviting you to attend a free consultation with one of our expert refractive optometrists in store.

Our optometrists can determine if you are a suitable candidate by assessing your expectations and lifestyle in addition to performing an in depth eye examination.

Only after this in depth eye examination, as well as assessing your expectations and lifestyle, can our optometrist determine if you are a suitable candidate.

Lens surgery can treat a very high degree of short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism. At your free consultation, one of our experienced laser-trained optometrists will perform an in-depth eye examination – including many additional tests not conducted during a standard eye examination – using state-of-the-art equipment to determine if you are a suitable candidate for corrective lens surgery.

 

Determining whether you’re suitable for corrective lens surgery

Short Sight (Myopia)

Short Sight (Myopia)

If you need vision correction to see things clearly at a distance, you are short sighted. Without glasses or contact lenses your distance vision is blurred.

Long Sight (Hyperopia)

Long Sight (Hyperopia)

If you need vision correction to read or see things close up, you are long sighted. Depending on your age you may have problems focusing on distant objects too.

Astigmatism<

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is commonly where the cornea (front surface of the eye) is oval, like a rugby ball instead of spherical, like a football. Most astigmatic corneas have two curves; a steeper curve and a flatter curve. Which cause light to focus at more than one point in the eye, resulting in blurred vision. Most people who are long and short sighted often have a degree of astigmatism.
