Advanced Laser Eye Surgery Equipment

Our laser eye surgery, Sunshine Coast clinic features up to date technology and equipment, Our specialised instruments provide highly accurate measurements of the eyes and precise surgical procedures to deliver 100% blade free surgery for every patient. Our diagnostic combination on the Sunshine Coast is:

  • Galilei G4 tomographer
  • Tracey itrace topographer
  • Wavelight Allegretto 400hz excimer laser
  • Ziemer Z6 femtosecond laser

The Ziemer Z6 has a very precise Femtosecond Laser to create a fine flap on the surface of the cornea. A perfect flap equates to the best possible visual quality.

This Wavelight laser can track the movement of your eye in every 3D dimension.This ensures that when the Laser correction is performed, the treatment is always precisely centred on your visual axis to provide the most accurate result.

It tracks 10 times faster than the eye can move, which means that even if you move your eye during the correction, it will not affect the outcome.

It has Wavefront Optimisation designed to preserve the cornea’s natural shape for the clearest vision.

Advanced LASIK with Femto Lasik

Founder Dr Peter Stewart performed the first LASIK surgery in Australia in 1995 and LASERSIGHT is committed to continually providing the safest most effective laser eye surgery procedures.

Our Queensland laser eye clinics offer the latest LASIK technology and equipment, including femto-lasik, the world's first blade-free LASIK surgery. Femto lasik can provide the best of both worlds, delivering the same healing strength of PRK with the quick visual recovery of LASIK. Find out more about Femto lasik.

Everyone's eyes are different however and we will give you a thorough, individual assessment to outline the best treatment program to improve your vision. Whether PRK, Lasik, ICL, IOL or Cataract surgery our surgeons will only operate safely and with confidence that your surgery should give the same or better vision than when you use glasses or contacts - but without the need for either.
