Laser Eye Surgery Sydney

Dr James Genge Laser Eye Surgery SydneyLaser eye surgery (LASIK) is a safe, incredibly accurate way of modifying the shape of the cornea to allow the individual to become independent of glasses.

The most advanced technique is to use a Femtosecond laser to create a flap in the front surface of the cornea. The ‘laser created’ flap is safer and has a superior profile to that created by a blade (microkeratome).

The flap is then lifted and the surface underneath reshaped with an Excimer laser. A flap allows for rapid visual recovery, generally within 1-2 days compared to 6-8 weeks for surface based laser (ASLA, PRK) and is pain free ( vs ASLA / PRK which is painful for 1-2 days.)

Northern Beaches Eye Surgery in Sydney uses the Alcon Refractive Suite, the worlds fastest Femtosecond / Excimer Laser platform, bringing the most advanced treatment available to the Peninsula.
