Lions Laser Vision prides itself on its expertise and experience, and has been changing people’s outlook on life for decades.
The first laser eye centre in Western Australia to perform the LASIK procedure, Lions Laser Vision boasts internationally trained surgeons and friendly, professional staff. Dr Steve Wiffen and Dr Andrea Ang have been providing safe and effective surgery for Australians for many years, using precision equipment and the latest diagnostics and treatment technologies.
Lions Laser Vision uses cutting edge LASIK technology, including the Schwind AMARIS 1050RS excimer laser – the first to be brought to Western Australia – and the fifth-generation Intralase Advanced iFS Laser, which provides the fastest possible treatment time with the safest and most predicable result.
LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis, which is a technique using the Intralase laser to create a partial thickness flap of the cornea, and then the excimer laser to reshape the surface beneath the flap. LASIK is performed as an outpatient procedure.
Lions Laser Vision also performs PRK laser eye surgery, which is done rather than LASIK if a patient’s cornea is too thick, or if there are problems with the surface of the cornea. PRK stands for PhotoRefractive Keratectomy and is a form of laser refractive surgery in which the shape of the cornea is changed using an excimer laser.
