What is laser vision correction?

A way to live life without the hassle and restrictions of glasses or contacts.

Laser eye surgery, also called laser vision correction, is eye surgery that involves the use of a laser to change the shape of the surface of your eye (the cornea) to remove any focusing error, just like wearing a pair of glasses or contact lenses.

What are the different types of laser eye surgery?


Lasik is a precision laser procedure which is 100% blade free and can restore vision for people who suffer from myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism.

The procedure takes 10-15 minutes and the recovery is extremely quick.

Thanks to Lasik, over 30 million people worldwide are now experiencing life without glasses or contact lenses.

Due to its success, it continues to be one of the most frequently performed, elective surgeries in the world.


SMILE is an advanced, minimally invasive and flapless procedure. The procedure is performed with a femtosecond laser and is 100% blade-free.

This keyhole technique allows rapid recovery and visual freedom for people suffering from myopia and astigmatism.  The procedure takes 10-15 minutes long and visual recovery is rapid.

SMILE is the most significant advancement in laser eye surgery in the last decade and we are pleased to be able to offer it to our patients.


PRK is a laser procedure using only an excimer laser to reshape the cornea. Unlike LASIK where a flap is created, PRK instead gently removes the surface cells, exposing the layer underneath allowing this to be re-shaped and corrected.

If your eyes are not well suited to Lasik or SMILE due to thin corneas or previous refractive surgery, then PRK is the preferable option.

This procedure allows you to still experience the freedom that comes with vision correction.
