Hunter Laser Vision was the first Laser Eye Treatment Centre in Australia to use the Schwind ESIRIS laser, with many others following our lead. This state-of-the-art technology combined with the expertise of our eye surgeons ensures our patients get the very best in refractive care. Old technology has no potential for customised treatments and we are committed to achieving the best outcomes for our patients.
We have two ophthalmic surgeons at Hunter Laser Vision. They are experienced and dedicated eye specialists, who regularly attend national and international conferences and maintain international affiliations to stay abreast with advances in laser refractive eye surgery and general Ophthalmology.
