You’re in the best hands with Dr Robert Paul at WA Laser Eye Centre

If you’ve been dreaming about a life independent of glasses or contact lenses, you’ve come to the right place. Here at WA Laser Eye Centre, we’re Perth’s premier refractive laser eye surgery conveniently located in both Nedlands and Melville. We are the only centre in WA to offer 4 lasers to correct your vision including, the 3rd Generation SMILE laser. Our principal surgeon, Dr Robert Paul has helped thousands of people achieve visual freedom and he can do the same for you too.

Laser eye surgery has helped over 22 million people regain their full eyesight and improve vision where it once lacked. Using the most advanced technology suite in the world, making the decision to undergo laser or LASIK eye surgery in Perth has never been easier. This painless and safe treatment is completed in mere seconds, almost immediately improving your vision and allowing you to take advantage of a glasses-free lifestyle.

Refractive eye surgery, also known as vision correction or laser eye surgery, is a surgical procedure undertaken by those who wish to correct or improve upon their vision. What many people don’t realise is that there are several laser eye treatment options available and not all require invasive blade methods. In fact, all laser treatments undertaken at our Perth eye clinics are 100% blade-free.

Refractive Lensectomy is a procedure similar to cataract surgery which involves removing the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens to improve 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 has extensive experience with phakic intraocular lenses, an additional lens added to the eye to improve the focusing power including the implantable contact lens.

We also provide the latest in laser assisted cataract surgery, using the innovative 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. If you wear reading glasses, please ask us about our LASIK MD procedure.
