Leading laser eye surgery technology

LASIK for precision safety and accuracy with the Zeiss VisuMax® femtosecond laser and the Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser.

  • All our treatments are individually personalised or customised. We use the advanced technology of the Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser
  • We have the only laser system in the South Island that has a seven dimensional eye tracker. A seven dimensional eye tracker provides both alignment of the axis and full registration of the eye for customised treatment. Before your surgery we create a digital image of your eye from the unique pattern of your iris detail. When you return for treatment, the laser recognises your eye. Aligning your specific treatment in the correct orientation enabling the laser treatment to be delivered with pin point accuracy. Accurate orientation of pre-operative eye measurements is important because all measurements of your eye are taken with you sitting however the treatment is done with you lying down under the laser. It is possible for your head to be not straight or your eye to rotate. Only advanced eye recognition technology can perfectly align the treatment.
  • With the advanced technology that Fendalton Eye Clinic have invested in, Dr Kent is able to treat complex corrections, including high astigmatism. For those with extreme short sightedness, implantable contact lens surgery may be an option.
  • Combining HD LASIK with the KAMRA corneal inlay Dr Kent is able to offer solutions for reduced spectacle dependency for those over 50 years of age who have lost the ability to adjust their focus for reading, texting & computer work.
