Our fee structure is clear and simple. An initial assessment fee is $220. (This can be rebated from Medicare). You are required to bring a referral from your GP or Optometrist on the day of your assessment.
Trans PRK Laser Eye Surgery cost starts from $2,850 per eye. The surface layer of cells ( epithelium ) is gently removed and the underlying cornea is sculpted using the Schwind Amaris Excimer Laser in accordance with the patient’s individual refractive error. This procedure is recommended if a patients cornea is too thin for LASIK, a high refractive error, or to avoid flap complications.
Traditional LASIK Laser Eye Surgery cost starts from $2,850 per eye. With having performed over 20,000 LASIK procedures and over 20 years experience the benefits of choosing the Australian Institute of Eye Surgery are clear to see. The LASIK method using the microkeratome and the Excimer laser has been used to treat over 50 million eyes, providing exceptional accuracy with a fast healing time and minimal discomfort.
WAVEFRONT / Laser Eye Surgery
Wavefront LASIK costs $3,250 per eye. The overall advantage of this wavefront system is a greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision or better than 20/20 vision. A Wavefront scan accurately measures higher order aberrations. This results in extremely precise and individualized vision correction outcomes which would be impossible to achieve with traditional LASIK. Wavefront technology uses 3-dimensional measurements of how your eye processes images. This information is then transferred to the laser. The laser then reshapes the cornea to your unique visual requirements. It has the potential to improve not only how much you can see, visual acuity measured by the standard 20/20 eye chart, but also how well you can see in terms of contrast sensitivity and fine detail.

No Gap Cataract Surgery
If you contribute annually to a Private Health Fund and have top cover without any excess, your health fund and you expect that these premiums will cover the costs of undergoing cataract and implant surgery. You reasonably assume that there will be no additional fees to pay either to the surgeon, anaesthetist or day surgery for your cataract and implant procedure.
The surgeons at the Australian Institute of Eye Surgery also think this should be so. That is why we have a 'NO GAP' policy for your cataract and implant procedure.
Once you have attended an in-depth consultation with one of our surgeons and all the necessary pre-operative tests have been undertaken there will be no additional fees for you to pay either the surgeon, anaesthetist or Day Surgery. Your Private Health Fund, if you are in top cover and have no excess, will cover you completely. This makes sense to us and to you.
