The Mater Private Eye Laser Centre has performed over 20,000 refractive surgeries since 1992.  Our Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons offer bladeless, wavefront guided customized laser treatments using the most up to date femtosecond and excimer technologies

The Mater Private Eye Laser Centre was established in 1992 and is one of the largest and most experienced eye laser units in the country.

Thousands of satisfied patients have come to recognise our commitment to the highest standards in quality care provided by world leaders in their field.

We offer a wide range of Laser Eye surgical options, in addition to lasek and lasik,  to treat conditions such as:

  • Short sightedness (myopia)
  • Long sightedness (hyperopia)
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia (the need for reading glasses)

Intraocular Lens Implantation for patients unsuitable for laser surgery.

In addition to providing laser eye surgery to get rid of your spectacles/contact lenses, we also perform intraocular lens implantation surgery for patients unsuitable for eye laser surgery i.e. if you are too short sighted or too long sighted for laser surgery.

The intraocular lens is placed just in front of the natural lens, acting a little like a contact lens within the eye.

The Mater Private hospital has performed over 1500 such procedures, more than any other centre in the country.

We also perform Corneal Crosslinking to treat Keratoconus.

Our Technology

At the Mater Private Eye Laser Centre, our main priority and focus is to provide the safest and most advanced techniques for correcting vision. We employ only the most up to date technologies including the Ziemer Femtosecond and Technolas Excimer lasers. For keratoconus treatments, we use the accelerated Avedro crosslinking system.

The intraocular phakic lenses implanted in patients unsuitable for laser surgery include the Ophtec Artisan and Artiflex lenses and the Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL).
