Your eyes and vision explained

Your vision is your most important sense, and for many their eyes are their most important physical feature. At Medownick Laser Eye Clinic, we want to assist you to be free to see naturally, without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Glasses and contact lenses can now become a thing of the past. At Medownick, we assess and treat thousands of patients every year for common eye problems, such as astigmatism, myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness), presbyopia (the need for multifocals), monovision and cataracts.

But it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. Your eyes change through the years, and as you get older, your vision naturally decreases, even for people who have always had great vision.

The way we treat your eyes as you age changes too. Our rigorous assessment process, where we test the health and wellbeing of your eyes, means we are able to form a tailored recommendation on suitable treatment based on your individual needs.

Let us help you be free from glasses and contact lenses today.
