An estimated 40 million laser refractive surgery procedures have been performed worldwide. With rapid advancements in technology, laser eye surgery can provide a safe and highly effective treatment for people of all ages, for short sight, long sight, astigmatism and presbyopia (the need for reading spectacles) depending on a person’s individual measurements and needs. We conduct a thorough eye examination using state of the art equipment to determine the best course of action for you.
A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures in the world – David Gartry has performed over 15,000 cataract operations and is also at the forefront of the femto laser assisted cataract surgery procedure.
Refractive Lens Exchange is a procedure becoming more popular in recent years. For individuals whose prescription exceeds the range of the laser (which is usually considered to be between -10.00D of short sight to +5.00D of long sight), it is safer to perform surgery within the eye. Instead of using a laser to re-shape the cornea, the natural human lens can be replaced completely with an artificial lens of the right power to correct the vision (known as refractive lens exchange).
A corneal transplant (also known as a graft) is a highly specialised operation in which part or all of a damaged cornea is removed and replaced with healthy donor tissue. The procedure is usually performed to improve sight and relieve pain. We offer both Phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) and Corneal transplantation (also known as a graft)
