Life Peninsula Eye hospital houses the Laser Suite where all our Laser surgery is performed. Two important factors influence the outcome of laser surgery – first is the experience of the surgeon and secondly is the equipment used. The hospital recently invested in a Wavelight Allegretto EX 500 – it utilises a modern, novel technique of removing corneal tissue and is one of the fastest growing laser systems used in USA and Europe. This platform, coupled with the oculyser and topolyser scanning devices performs a customised wavefront optimised ablation for every patient ensuring the best possible visual outcome.
