We can provide an extensive examination to determine your suitability for laser surgery. We will test the stability of your prescription and the structural capacity of your eyes. Additional tests are required for this assessment, including pachymetry and corneal topography.
We are able to perform pre-operative and post-operative assessments for all laser clinics, including the following in Melbourne:

An alternative to laser surgery for many people is Ortho-Keratology
Ortho Keratology Treatment
Ortho-Keratology is a contact lens treatment for myopia (short sightedness) and low degrees of astigmatism. It involves wearing a rigid contact lens worn at night to re-shape the cornea so that glasses and contact lenses are not required during the day. Ortho-Keratology is adaptable to changing prescriptions and can be ceased at any time. We are the only Optometry clinic in country Victoria registered to provide this treatment.
