Our clinic in Pimlico is the only ophthalmic practice in Townsville to offer laser eye surgery. People come from all over Far North Queensland to access our services, not only because of our location but also because of the reputation of our ophthalmic surgeon, Dr Lee Lenton. Dr Lenton has long been recognised as a pioneering Queensland eye surgeon, with deep connections to Townsville and the surrounding region. He specialises in laser eye surgery (LASIK and ASLA/PRK), refractive lens exchange and cataract surgery, with a special interest in trifocal lens technology.
Vision Eye Institute Townsville also provides general corneal care, including pterygium surgery and ocular surface disease management.
Ask if the quoted price includes initial consultation, your procedure, medications, 6 months post-operative care and any enhancements (if needed) within a 2-year period. Ours does – there are no ‘hidden fees’ at Vision Eye Institute Townsville.
At Vision Eye Institute Townsville, our ultra-modern surgery is equipped to ensure every patient receives the highest possible standard of care. We also recognise that a calm atmosphere is important. Tropical gardens surround our clinic, while vaulted ceilings and skylights make our waiting rooms light, bright and airy.
Our clinic has a dedicated, fully equipped laser suite and day surgery so that surgical procedures can be performed on-site for patient convenience and continuity of care. Our laser technology is equally matched by the latest diagnostic equipment, meaning that all surgical patients receive a fully customised outcome for optimal results. To ensure a pleasant experience at our clinic, we strive to keep waiting times to a minimum.
With the advancements in technology, we can now help the majority of people who wear glasses with some form of vision correction procedure – even if you’ve previously been told you don’t qualify. Dr Lenton is a vision correction specialist and has performed over 15,000 LASIK procedures. He also has expertise in ASLA, refractive lens exchange and implantable lenses.
At the initial assessment consultation, we’ll carefully check your eyes to determine if you are suitable for vision correction and, if so, which procedure is most appropriate for you. As with any surgery, there are benefits and risks and Dr Lenton will discuss these with you.
Vision correction procedures are performed in our day surgery.
During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial one. With significant experience using the latest lens technology, including trifocal lenses, Dr Lenton is well placed to help you decide on the option that best suits your vision and lifestyle needs.
Cataract surgeries are performed in our day surgery.
