So, you’ve finally decided you want to have laser vision correction and now the next thing you want to be sure of is, are you in good hands?

Where do you begin?  Well, we’ve put a list of questions and answers together that we thought would probably cross your mind so we can put your mind at ease:

  1. Is the technology and equipment used to perform laser surgery, state-of-the art?

At Re:Vision, the very latest German technology is being used to perform the laser procedure.  We the only clinic in NZ to offer the combination of individually customized Amaris 1050RS Excimer treatments with the Ziemer Z6 Femto-second laser.  This combination has been specifically selected by Dr Gray as the best technologies for his patients.

  1. How many laser surgeries have you performed?

Over 10,000 laser vision correction procedures have been performed by Dr Gray

  1. Are you and your practice registered to perform laser eye surgery?

Yes, Dr Gray is a registered member of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmology and our facilities are fully accredited.

  1. Is this surgery best for me or do you offer any other treatment options more suited?

At Re:Vision, we offer the best, personalised solution to your unique visual requirements.  We offer a wide range of vision correction options and will always offer the solution that is best for you and your eyes. 

  1. What is the optimal age for laser vision correction?

We consider each person’s eyes and vision problems individually so there is no one single rule about this.  Most people can consider laser vision correction from about 20 years of age up to about 60, depending on the condition of the eyes and the type of focusing problems being treated.

  1. Does laser vision correction require anaesthesia?

The only anaesthesia needed are some eye drops that numb the surface of the eye before and during the procedure.   These are very effective and safe.

  1. How soon will I be able to return to my normal “daily” activities or go back to work?

In most instances the vision is good enough to drive the next day and to return to work in 1 or 2 days.  You may need to avoid swimming and some contact sports for a short period – part of designing the best procedure for you is finding out what you like to do with your time.

  1. If I have any concerns after my surgery, is it easy enough for me to contact you or your team?

We pride ourselves on personalised care, and your vision and wellbeing is our top priority.  We ensure you have all our contact information,  for any time of day, should you require it.

We respect the fact that it takes a lot to make the decision to have the laser procedure, so we totally understand that you want to make sure we’re qualified and experienced.  We hope the questions and answers we have given you will help you to confidently book your laser assessment as well as  give the team an opportunity to find out more about you and what you need, and how we can help you get the most from your vision.
