Laser eye surgery has helped millions of people say ‘goodbye’ to glasses and ‘hello’ to a whole new world.

In fact, every day we assist people from all corners of the globe in regaining not only their eyesight, but also the glasses-free lifestyle they’ve only dreamed of.
Our Technology & Laser Eye Surgery
WA Laser Eye Centre offers the most advanced techniques available in laser and refractive surgery in the country. We’re proud of our achievements – not many centres can claim they were the first clinic in The Southern Hemisphere to use the fastest laser system in the world – the Wavelight EX500. Our Perth eye clinic specialises in laser and corrective surgeries including LASIK and PRK as well as Multifocal and Refractive Intraocular Lens Implants to correct short-sightedness (Myopia), long-sightedness (Hyperopia) and astigmatism.
We also provide the latest in laser assisted cataract surgery, using the innovative femtosecond laser. The role of femtosecond lasers in cataract surgery is to assist or replace several aspects of the manual cataract surgery. The accuracy, precision and visual outcome of cataract surgery is significantly enhanced with this new technology. In fact, Dr Robert Paul was the first surgeon in WA to perform this effective, bladeless treatment.
