Our Laser and Facilities

site for eyes laser

We utilise the latest excimer laser technology to treat short sight, long sight and astigmatism and are able to offer advanced customised treatment options with Zyoptix or Wavefront Guided treatment, Aspheric treatments and Tissue Saving options. Our surgeons will discuss with you prior to surgery the most suitable treatment to give you the best chance of achieving the visual outcome you desire.

Our Bausch and Lomb 217z100 Excimer Laser has a state of the art eye tracking system which includes iris recognition capability and rotational tracking as well as tracking in the x,y and z planes to ensure exceptionally high levels of safety with the application of your laser treatment. Capable of treating myopia up to -15.00 dioptres in conjunction with moderate levels of astigmatism.

Older laser systems are only capable of treating your spectacle or contact lens prescription. Your eyes optical system, however, contains many other 'higher order' aberrations, all of which can affect your quality of vision.

With the Bausch & Lomb Zywave Aberrometer it is now possible for all of the eye aberrations or optical errors to be measured.

Bausch & Lomb Zyoptix system combines the Zywave optical map and Orbscan corneal map to generate a customised treatment plan for each eye and reduce more of the optical errors thereby improving clinical outcomes.
