Laser eye surgery

Dr Mark Medownick and his expert team have helped more than 40,000 people say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses, and achieve better than 20/20 vision. What are you waiting for?

Laser eye surgery – also commonly referred to as Lasik – is a corrective eye surgery for people suffering from myopia (short-sightedness), astigmatism (blurred vision) or hypermetropia (long-sightedness).

Medownick Laser Eye Clinic pioneered laser eye surgery in Australia, becoming the first clinic to perform laser vision correction for long-sightedness. Our experienced team, led by Dr Mark Medownick, uses state-of-the-art technology to assess the health of your eyes, and your suitability for laser eye surgery. It’s a little known fact that we decline around 30 per cent of people. The reason? We are committed to ensuring success for our patients, and only treat people we assess to be suitable for laser eye surgery.

If you’ve ever wondered what life without glasses or contact lenses would be like, our highly qualified staff will let you know if you are suitable candidate for laser eye surgery at Medownick.
