Dr Fraenkel says: "Laser Vision SA has a unique emphasis on helping you with care, guidance and technology on your journey to recover your lost vision. Laser Vision SA exists to make it easier and more comfortable for you to regain your visual freedom, without the hindrance, discomfort or expense of glasses or contacts."

So many could have wonderful vision without glasses or contacts after laser eye surgery. However many don't choose 21st century laser vision correction because of fear of the procedure, or concern about choosing the correct technology. Instead they use glasses or contacts, which date from previous centuries.

Every part of Laser Vision SA is here to help you feel more comfortable exploring the possibility of laser eye surgery for yourself. So many patients say the procedures was more quick and comfortable than expected and the results life changing. You could be one of them.

Laser Vision SA has a great interest in maximizing our patients' vision and experience whilst at Laser Vision SA. I use laser eye surgery techniques including SMILE, LASIK, PRK and laser clear lens extraction to reduce patients' frustrations with glasses or contacts.

Dr Fraenkel had very successful SMILE vision correction 18/12/2014 for monovision and at this time still does not use glasses or contact lenses for distance and close vision.
