All our doctors are Fellows of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO), and abide by their standards and regulations. All our doctors participate in a Continuing Professional Development program, and regularly attend medical conferences, courses and meetings in Australia and overseas to keep up to date in this rapidly changing field. They all serve in the public and private hospitals, and are actively involved in the teaching of optometrists, medical students and ophthalmology trainees.

Vision Eye Institute Brisbane
Level 2, 401 Milton Road, Auchenflower QLD 4066 Australia
The refractive team at Vision Eye Institute Brisbane is led by respected eye surgeon Dr Lee Lenton and includes an experienced team of optometrists and ophthalmic technicians. In particular, the highly skilled team take pride in delivering quality care and outcomes for patients. Additionally, some of our clinic staff are fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. Dr Lenton has over 20 years of experience and was one of the first surgeons in Australia to perform laser eye surgery. He has now performed over 15,000 LASIK procedures and is also an expert in PRK (also known as ASLA). Dr Lenton is also able to offer an alternative solution (e.g. lens exchange, implantable contact lenses) if it turns out laser eye surgery isn’t an option for you. Vision Eye Institute Brisbane is located within the recently renovated RiverCity Private Hospital in Auchenflower. Our state-of-the-art facilities are fully equipped with the latest of ophthalmic technologies and specialised diagnostic equipment. We offer a FREE, NO-OBLIGATION initial assessment for laser eye surgery with one of our optometrists or orthoptists. During this assessment, we’ll perform some key tests to help determine if laser eye surgery may be an option for you. If it is, a consultation can then be organised with one of our eye surgeons (Medicare rebate available*). This surgical consultation will take up to 2 hours and you will receive detailed advice about the laser eye surgery procedure that is most appropriate for your situation, the benefits and risks of surgery, the cost and what to expect during the recovery period. This advice is specifically tailored to your needs (e.g. visual goals and lifestyle considerations) to ensure you are fully informed when deciding whether to proceed with surgery. There is no obligation to proceed with either a consultation or surgery. For your convenience, we also offer payment plans should you choose to have surgery. *Medicare rebate for the surgical consultation requires a referral letter from a GP or optometrist. If you have a free laser eye surgery assessment at Vision Eye Institute, we will provide you with the referral letter.
