The Hunter Laser Vision team of Ophthalmic Surgeons have been performing laser eye surgery for thousands of people since opening our doors in 1998. Hunter Laser Vision was the first Laser Eye Treatment Centre in Australia to use the Schwind ESIRIS laser, with many others following our lead.
Our Ophthalmic Surgeons and staff are dedicated to providing state-of-the-art laser eye surgery procedures in a professional, efficient and caring environment. 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. Old technology has no potential for customised treatments and we are committed to achieving the best outcomes for our patients.
Conditions that can be treated at Hunter Laser Vision include:
- Myopia (shortsightedness),
- Hypermetropia (longsightedness),
- Presbyopia (near vision loss).
Our experienced specialist Ophthalmic Surgeons and staff are devoted to advising you on the best way to gain visual freedom, and in many cases, glasses and contact lenses will become a thing of the past.
Let Hunter Laser Vision give you your visual freedom.
