Laser vision correction

:

*$580 value

Most vision-focusing problems, or refractive errors, are caused by the distinct shape of the eye. If the cornea is too steep or too flat in curvature, this can create short-sightedness or long-sightedness, along with other distortions in vision such as astigmatism. When treating these issues with laser eye surgery, we use a special laser to smooth off and reshape the surface of the eye. This corrects focusing problems in the long-term.

The humble acronym we know as the LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) has focussed its beam on our lives in so many ways – and no more so than with our eyes.

The difference between laser and LASIK eye surgery is easy to understand. LASIK, or Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusisis, is the name of the specific method employed in most laser eye surgeries. LASIK is the world’s most common method of freeing human eyes from the need for glasses and contact lenses, and has positively transformed the lives of millions of people.

Precise, fast and proven, LASIK laser vision correction delivers excellent results and a quick recovery period, allowing you to return to your normal activities the next day with no glasses or contacts, just great vision.

You may think that LASIK or laser eye surgery is expensive. While it isn’t cheap, you might be surprised to learn how much money you save when compared to a lifetime of buying glasses or contacts. 

LASIK proves a superior investment over the course of 20 years or less, depending on how much you spend on glasses or contacts. Not to mention you will enjoy the added benefit of not requiring to wear glasses or put in contacts every day.

By the time I turn 60 I will have spent:

How does LASIK Laser Vision Correction work?

LASIK works by reshaping the cornea – the front surface of the eye. The procedure is highly precise, and our trained surgeons and support staff complete the process in two main steps. First, the laser produces tiny pulses of light which help separate the layers on the surface of the eye. The second step is to then access the deeper layers of the eye with a state-of-the-art, German-engineered, Scwind 1050 excimer laser. This laser reshapes the lower layers in seconds. The layers are then put back in position to heal, and the procedure is complete.

Are you a candidate for LASIK Laser Vision Correction?

Around 4 out of 5 patients qualify for LASIK. You should be a good candidate for laser vision correction if:

  • You are 20 years old or above.
  • Your vision has been stable for at least a year.
  • You have otherwise healthy eyes.

Should you not be a good candidate for laser vision correction, there may be other options that will work just as well, such as Implantable Contact Lenses (ICLs), Advanced Custom Surface Laser (PRK), and Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE). Read on to find out more about your other options, beginning with another laser vision correction procedure; SMILE.

What is SMILE?

Similar to LASIK, SMILE is a technique for laser vision correction that uses a femtosecond laser in lieu of any blade, and is known to be minimally invasive.

SMILE – which is short for SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction – generally takes a little longer to perform and recover from, but these are still both remarkably short timeframes overall. This is because SMILE involves slightly more manual work to manipulate the lenticule; a small layer of corneal tissue. SMILE is very new, and so studies surrounding it are still ongoing, but it’s thought that SMILE could reduce the amount of dry-eye post-surgery.

 The procedure has been shown to effectively treat myopia and astigmatism, and under certain circumstances SMILE may be a better fit for you. Your ophthalmologist will be able to let you know if SMILE could help you during your vision assessment. 

As the latest development in laser eye surgery in the past ten years, we’re proud to be qualified with the technology. Re:Vision founder Dr Trevor Gray is a certified surgeon for the Zeiss VisuMax laser used to perform SMILE laser vision correction. He uses the very newest laser technology available in New Zealand to provide unequalled safety, care and quality of vision.


What other options are there?

Intraocular contact lens (ICL)

Laser eye surgery may not be an option for you depending on your precise circumstances. In such situations, we might suggest intraocular contact lens. In this operation, a small lens is placed inside the eye. Each lens is made to fit the patient, so if you opt for this procedure, rest assured it is 100% tailored to you.  

Refractive lens exchange (RLE)

Another option that involves implanting a lens into your eye is RLE. You may be suited to this operation if you have found yourself depending on glasses more and more over the years. 

RLE involves not only implanting an intraocular lens, but also removing your natural, unfocused one.  These days, replacement lenses for RLE are so advanced that many patients are surprised by how well they can see after the operation.
