The eye surgeons at Vision Eye Institute Chatswood are pioneers and internationally recognised experts in the field of laser eye surgery and other vision correction procedures – they have helped correct the vision of more than 50,000 patients over the last 20 years.
Our Chatswood surgeons were the first in Australia to perform LASIK and the first in Sydney to perform the latest laser eye surgery procedure, SMILE®. To date, they have performed the most SMILE® procedures across Australia and New Zealand. Using state-of-the-art equipment and technology, our surgeons offer the full range of vision correction techniques – including LASIK, SMILE® and PRK laser eye surgery – and can recommend the most appropriate option for you.
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.
