Laser Vision Correction

Laser Vision Correction, or Laser Eye Surgery, uses laser to change the shape of the cornea (surface of your eye) to correct focusing errors (like short sightedness and astigmatism) with extreme precision.

Auckland Eye offers three main options for laser eye surgery – the widest choice available anywhere in New Zealand. You’ll need a full assessment from one our specialists to see which option is right for you:

  • SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) – the quickest, most technologically advanced and precise laser eye surgery in the world. This one step, one laser, keyhole laser eye surgery has been designed and perfected by Carl Zeiss – a huge step forward in laser treatments and one that Auckland Eye is proud to be able to offer exclusively in Auckland.
  • LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) – the most well known laser eye surgery. Millions of people worldwide have already benefited from this advanced two step, two laser technique, with proven results.
  • PRK (Photo-Refractive Keratectomy) – the original proven and effective laser eye surgery. Though LASIK is a more common treatment, PRK is a safer option for those people unable to have LASIK because of thinner corneas.

Auckland Eye offers a free assessment to patients interested in laser eye surgery and the appointment usually takes approx 45 minutes to complete. Please call 0800 639393 or visit for more information.
