With clear vision, people can see children smiling, flowers growing and partners painting the bedroom walls fluoro orange instead of lavender. Don’t miss a thing with today’s Groupon: $975 for Wavefront LASIK surgery for one eye, including initial consultation and post-op follow-up visits for 12 months from the Australian Institute of Eye Surgery ($1950 value).
Having performed more than 18,000 LASIK procedures and over 10,000 cataract and implant procedures, Dr Ronald Binetter of Australian Institute of Eye Surgery is one of Sydney’s most experienced laser vision correction specialists and was also one of the first Australian ophthalmologists to be certified in the United States to perform LASIK. In business since 1996, the Australian Institute of Eye Surgery, a purpose-built eye-care facility, is fully certified by the NSW Board of Health and has been awarded full accreditation for excellence by the Australian Council of Health Care Standards. LASIK is the most common laser vision correction procedure performed today with outstanding results for patients.
Dr Binetter conducts an initial consultation with each patient to determine if they are eligible for the procedure. Successful candidates return for treatment on a separate date. This procedure uses a Schwind Amaris laser, the latest, fastest, state-of-the-art Wavefront LASIK machine which delivers extremely precise results that would be impossible with traditional LASIK surgery. The Schwind Amaris is the first and only machine to combine all available technologies into one system, with a very high ablation speed, turbo-charged eyetracker, rotation balance, advanced cyclotorsion control and integrated online pachymetry ensuring exceedingly high levels of accuracy, speed and safety.
The Wavefront technology is groundbreaking because it has the potential to improve not only how much patients see as measured by the standard 20/20 eye chart, but also how well they see in terms of contrast, sensitivity and fine detail. By creating a 3D map of the eye’s ability to process images, the laser is guided to reshape the cornea which is designed to correct vision defects such as short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.
The LASIK vision correction procedure takes 10 minutes per eye and is virtually painless. Recovery is exceptionally quick – patients can usually return to work and drive the following day and experience full visual improvement in one to four weeks.
While LASIK results vary between individuals, most patients achieve better than 20/20 vision, spectacle liberation and a new, frameless perspective on the world around them. A post-op follow-up visit to check the healing process is scheduled for the day after treatment. If patient is found ineligible for treatment, a full refund will be given.
