Why Trust Us with Your Vision?
At Eye Laser Specialists the patient remains the centre of our focus – from the moment you make your first contact with our practice to the moment you realise you can do away with your glasses and contacts, and beyond – our vision is your vision, and your eye health is always our number one priority.
We understand that your eyes are unique, as is the way that you use them and depend on them for your work, lifestyle, and play. This is why Eye Laser Specialists use the latest diagnostic equipment from Europe and laser refractive suite by Zeiss to give us the most precise diagnostic data when it comes to planning and executing the most successful surgery for your unique eyes. Eye Laser Specialists are the first clinic in Melbourne to offer SMILE® laser eye surgery.
At Eye Laser Specialists we are proud to have positioned ourselves as a state-of-the-art refractive eye specialist clinic close to Melbourne CBD, improving accessibility for all patients who wish to reduce their dependency on glasses and contact lenses. Patients arriving by car will find street parking available on High Street. To further improve access to patients seeking freedom of vision with refractive surgery, we offer a free preliminary assessment to determine your specific visual needs and to discuss which refractive technique is most suitable for you.
Glasses and contact lenses can be a hindrance to those who live an active lifestyle and can even be unsafe for use in certain vocations and activities where lenses can be damaged or lost. If you can imagine yourself seeing clearly without the use of optical aids, call Eye Laser Specialists now on 1300 297 583 to book your complimentary preliminary assessment.
Our entire team is experienced and highly-trained, with a strong focus on ensuring you feel comfortable and well-informed throughout your entire journey to spectacle and contact lens freedom. Dr van Heerden is supported by skilled clinicians with optometry and orthoptics training, who will play an important role in discussing your visual needs, answering any questions you may have, and offering clinical guidance. They will also be a part of ensuring the most successful outcome for you, post-surgery.
