Having eye laser surgery in Wellington

No eye clinic in New Zealand offers the extensive range of laser eye surgeries that the Wellington Eye Centre has available on site.

Hotel accommodation package in Wellington

If you live outside the greater Wellington area we can offer you and your support person a one-off Wellington hotel accommodation package at a hotel within easy walking distance of our Wellington clinic. This includes one or two nights accommodation at just $50 per night, subject to terms and conditions.

At Wellington Eye Centre, we have a suite of Carl Zeiss lasers that offer some of the most advanced latest technology for laser eye surgery. This include the Visumax femtosecond laser, shown in published medical research to be preferred by 78% of people over the femtosecond laser used by most of our competitors. We offer the following laser eye surgeries:

  • Presbyond Blended Vision for eliminating reading glasses

We also offer a range of non-laser vision correction treatments if you are unsuitable for laser eye surgery.

Free Suitability Assessment for Palmerston North/Manawatu patients

For patients who live outside Wellington, your initial assessment can be performed by a local optometrist in the Palmerston North area. If you proceed with laser eye surgery with the Eye Centre in Wellington, we will reimburse you the cost of seeing the optometrist.

Wellington Eye Centre also offers a free suitability assessment to anyone interested in laser vision correction. During this assessment we will conduct an eye exam, and other eye health checks. This will take around 40 minutes, and by the end of the appointment we’ll be able to determine whether you’re suitable for laser surgery. If you’re suited to one of our eye surgery procedures, then you will need to book a medical assessment

Post operative care in Palmerston North

If you live in Palmerston North, then it could be a bit of an inconvenience to get all the way back to Wellington for your eye tests and checks following eye surgery. That’s why we will arrange your post-operative care with your local Palmerston North optometrist, at no cost to you.

You’ll need several eye check appointments following your surgery, at:

  • 1 week post-op
  • 1 month post-op
  • 3 months post-op
  • 6 months post-op

At these follow-ups your eye surgeon or optometrist will take various eye measurements to check on your healing process.

These offers cannot be used in conjunction, but talk to us to find out more about what options might suit you.
