Refractive Lensectomy is a procedure similar to cataract surgery and it involves removing the natural lens of the eye and replacing with an artificial lens to improve the vision. There are a number of lens implants used including Multifocal and Monofocal Refractive Intraocular Lens Implants such as the Restor, Zeiss trifocal and Symfony intraocular lens.

Dr Paul also has extensive experience in phakic intraocular lenses, which are an additional lens added to the eye to improve the focusing power including the implantable contact lens.

Lens implants are a suitable option for individuals not suited to LASIK and/or who have very high refractive error (glasses prescription).

WA Laser Eye Centre also provides the latest in laser assisted cataract surgery, using the new LensX Femtosecond laser. The role of femtosecond lasers in cataract surgery is to assist or replace several aspects of the manual cataract surgery.

Keratoconus patients can be treated with Kerarings, Intacs or Corneal crosslinking at WA Laser Eye Centre.

If you’ve been thinking about laser vision correction and want a lifestyle independent of glasses or contact lenses, the first step is to contact us at WA Laser Eye Centre, to schedule a FREE appointment and discuss your treatment options.

Dr Paul reminds everyone that Lasik is an approved medical procedure and patients should be careful of choosing low cost centres claiming they use the latest and safest technology, as outdated techniques with prolonged recovery are often used.
