Who is vision correction for?

Dr. Matthew Russell explains who would benefit from laser vision correction

Vision correction (also known as laser eye surgery) is for anybody that is dependent on glasses either for their distance vision, near vision or both.

Shortsightedness – Is it negatively impacting your life?

Vision correction can help you if you’re shortsighted and your consequent dependency on glasses or contact lenses restricts you from taking part in normal activities.



The best way to find out if eye treatment is right for you is to have an in-person assessment. You’ll get a clear answer from our experts on your suitability and vision correction options


Contact lenses – Do they make you feel restricted?

Vision correction (that is, LASIK or PRK) is a fantastic solution if you have been in contact lenses for an extended period, and are struggling to tolerate them due to dryness, discomfort or simply the inconvenience of having to put them in and take them out every day.

Vision correction may also be an excellent option for someone concerned about the longterm risks of wearing contact lenses. Click here to learn more about the best laser vision correction Brisbane.
