At your consultation
Dr Furness will establish the degree of refractive error present (glasses prescription) and determines which vision outcome option will work best based on the tests performed and your visual preferences.
What happens on the day of surgery?
RLE surgery takes only 30 minutes and your outpatient visit to Perth Eye Hospital will be approximately 3 hours. You are required to begin an eye drop 3 days prior to your procedure and more medicated eye drops will be provided by the nursing staff on the day of your procedure. You will be advised to take these eye drops for a short period after your procedure to optimize your healing time and reduce the likelihood of post operative complications.
Cost of surgery
At your consultation, you will be provided with a quote for the surgery type that is recommended for you. Surgery cost depends on the type of lens that is required to correct your vision to the highest standard. It also depends on several other factors. The cost of RLE surgery begins at $5,500 per eye.
Interest free finance is available for up to 2 years which is very helpful when spreading the cost of your procedure. The application process is very simple and a dedicated and knowledgeable team member will discuss this with you during your consultation.
