Cataract surgery

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that once you turn 40, the likelihood of developing cataracts increases. The good news is that cataracts are completely treatable with a simple and virtually painless Low Stress CataractTM procedure from Medownick Laser Eye Clinic in Melbourne.

Cataracts are an eye condition of the eye where the lens becomes progressively opaque and, as a result, your vision is blurred. Cataract eye surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the world. In Australia, more than 120,000 people have cataract surgery every year.

At Medownick Laser Eye Clinic, we give your eyes a thorough health check to detect any early signs of cataracts. Our assessment then goes one step further to ensure any other issues with vision loss, particularly those involving your retina or optic nerve, are also checked. Our aim is to give you a complete picture of the health and wellbeing of your eyes, so you are totally informed.

Our experienced team, led by Dr Mark Medownick, uses advanced laser and eye technology to surgically remove cataracts and restore your vision. We call this procedure Low Stress CataractTM because of its minimally invasive nature and optimum level of patient comfort. Our success rate for cataract operations is outstanding, and exceeds 99 per cent.

Cataracts develop gradually over time, and some people learn to live with these changes as they believe it’s just part of the natural ageing process. But something can be done to change that. If you’ve noticed that you have cloudy, blurry vision, book in for a free no-obligation consultation today.
