Do you remember the first time you were told you had to wear glasses? or the first time you had to put a contact lens in your eye?

Now, imagine the freedom and joy of waking up tomorrow morning and seeing everything clearly without either. Imagine a new and adventurous life without the need for corrective lenses.

What is the best age and life stage to get

laser vision correction?

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. The best time for laser vision correction is when you are 18, but if you want clear, effortless vision and you are considered a perfect candidate, the next best time is right now. Laser vision correction can be life-changing at various stages of life, allowing people to do what they love without the inconvenience of glasses and contact lenses.

Myopia control is the area of children’s eye care dedicated to slowing down childhood nearsightedness progression. 

Myopia cannot be reversed, and the goal of treatment is to keep it from getting worse. This can protect a child’s eye health in the future. Treatment includes eye drops and special contact lenses.    

Having LASIK surgery at age 18 means having good near and distance vision for the longest time possible thus getting the maximum improvement in quality of life.

You will save the most on glasses and contact lenses.

The younger you are, the faster and better you heal.

Astigmatism | Farsightedness | Nearsightedness

At age 45 you may have been wearing glasses all your life or just recently realised you need reading glasses.

This is the earliest age for surgery to achieve blended vision which should also eliminate future need for readers.

LASIK surgery at this age should be permanent until old age brings cataracts.

If you had LASIK surgery at a younger age you will eventually need a blended LASIK ‘topup’ when you start needing reading glasses.

Somewhere between 55 and 65, old age will give you cataracts. Once again, whether you have been wearing glasses your whole life or only needed them more recently, you have another opportunity to achieve spectacle independence. Cataract surgery with a premium lens may correct your vision, restoring it again for all distances.

 

*Please note that most medical aids do not fund refractive surgery. Cataract surgery is a prescribed minimum benefit (PMB) and by law has to be paid for by medical aids. If you choose premium lenses for independence from glasses you will have a co-payment on the lens.

THE BENEFITS OF LASER VISION CORRECTION

Look at your choices. Glasses. Contacts. LASIK. Pick the best one. Do it now.

Watch in water

You no longer need to clean your contact lenses twice a day. Laser vision correction will give you at least 10 more minutes a day. In one year, that’s 60 hours. And there’s the time spared not searching for your glasses or readers.

Choosing sight without glasses is a lifechanging event. See clearly every waking moment*. Just get up and go. Dive in and swim. Enjoy your hobbies and sports without a thought for your glasses and contact lenses.

Both LASIK surgery and contact lenses are safe. Did you know that sight-affecting corneal infections are 10 times higher in long term contact lens wearers than after LASIK surgery? LASIK has fewer side effects and higher satisfaction rates ** than contact lenses.

Just being able to see without visual aids is priceless, but LASIK surgery can actually save you money. There is a strong argument for having LASIK surgery sooner rather than later if you calculate how much you spend on glasses and contact lenses. Try our cost calculator to see how it adds up over time.

Absolutely loved the service at both the Menyln and Sandton eye clinics.The staff at both clinics are very professional and organized. The doctors and staff made sure that I was greatly taken care of - be it consultation or the procedure itself. They guided me well throughout the process. The staff also personally followed up to see whether I was experiencing any symptoms after the procedure.I would definitely recommend their services. The surgery was painless, quick and so worth it. I have also been for 2 follow-ups after the procedure. Everything is looking great I can actually see better than the 20/20 vision level. It is now an absolute bliss not having the need to wear glasses.I would wholeheartedly like to thank Dr Precious Phutudi for the smooth experience .♥️

It’s been a week since my Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK) surgery and I cannot describe how I feel. Waking up and just being able to SEE without glasses or contact lenses is life changing. I have struggled with my vision since I was 13, it has really affected EVERY aspect of my life, activities I could do, the amount of make up I could wear, driving at night, failing my eye tests at the licensing department, the list is endless. I CAN’T BELIEVE ITS ALL IN THE PAST!With each passing day my vision gets clearer and clearer. I still find myself looking for my contacts lenses in a mirror sometimes - I really can’t believe it.I cannot thank the team at Sandton Eye Clinic enough. You have honestly changed my life & with so much love and kindness too ❤️They are just the best

There's only a few life-changing decisions that I've made in my life, and getting LASIK surgery was definitely one of them. I cannot express the gratitude I have for the freedom of not wearing glasses or contact lenses. The team at Santon eye clinic don't just help people see better, they help them enjoy life more.

I spent extra to go to the expert because it’s my eyes. You want the best, right?I just bought glasses again, a year after my op. It’s nice that I see “better” but I would have preferred more information on what the outcome would feel like.I got two settings due to my age. One eye for distance and one for reading. I’m a computer professional. My reading eye can’t see my screen clearly (it’s better at iPhone distance but not amazing). It annoyed me for a year and I kept making excuses. My distance eye can’t really see distance clearly. I guess it’ll adjust into the range that it does over time, but for now it’s a bit off and an optometrist said it’s not really good enough for a driving test. I did a driving test and barely squeaked through. I’m always a bit wary driving in less than ideal conditions and I’ll probably take glasses to my next test.Bought expensive glasses, one pair for computer and one for driving. Much happier. But this is exactly what I was trying to avoid, right?Learnings:- Ask exactly what you’ll experience. The difference between my two eyes wasn’t “a bit”. There’s no overlap. It’s pretty stark, and it was a surprise.- Be involved in the setting the doc chooses for you. Like, skill up and don’t just trust. We’re trained to trust medical professionals. Trust but verify, be more involved than I was.Recommendation for the business:Take more time in selecting the outcome. Give people take-home material. Set up lenses so they know what it’ll look like after the op - left will look like X, right like Y, this is the distance it’ll work best for, stereo will be good at distances from A to B but not C.3 stars because it’s much better to be able to do sports without glasses. Much more functional and can get by. That’s very cool. And I have no idea but all signs are that the operation was technically excellent. A couple of optometrists have said the cut is very good. He’s also a really good guy you’ll enjoy interacting with. Part of the reason for this review is because I know they’re very good and will hopefully use it to make the business better.So: technically very good but I was a bit disappointed and could never shake the feeling it’s not what I was sold.

Best money ever spent. Yes, expensive, but every cent worth it. The doctor spends time, treats you like a person. Service well done, satisfied with the procedure and will recommend a thousand times over.

If you are looking for exceptional service, Sandton Eye Clinic is the place to go. Ilka went above and beyond to try find the best solution for me, exploring all possibilities and answering all my question. I am yet to go for the surgery but to date they have been very accommodating to me. I look forward to my eye surgery in January.

Honestly, I don't think a Google Review will do any justice.I've been wearing glasses from a very young age & recently that changed when I came across the Sandton Eye Clinic.The staff is efficient & friendly. Dr Melody Sun is informative & was very caring when she preformed the LASIK procedure as I was rather anxious, she sure knows how to put one at ease.I had my procedure done 30 / 11 / 2022 & the next day was clear as light.Forever grateful towards the Sandton Eye Clinic & Dr Melody Sun as her & the team changed my life!THANK YOU 😊
