    Expertise in Laser Refractive Surgery

    Dr Perrott is one of Cape Town’s leading vision correction surgeons and has been performing laser vision correction (LASIK) for over 20 years. He can help you safely achieve the freedom from glasses and contacts you are looking for.

    Am I suitable for LASIK?

    Laser eye surgery is an excellent option for vision correction, and most patients experience a dramatic improvement in quality of life by eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.

    Most common refractive errors such as farsightedness (hyperopia), near-sightedness (myopia) and astigmatism can be corrected.

    During laser eye surgery the front of the eye, or ‘cornea’, is precisely reshaped by a pulsed laser beam. The procedure fast and painless. And so is the recovery. It has an extremely high safety profile and so far over 30 million people have had laser vision correction with extremely high levels of satisfaction.

    Here’s a quick look at why so many people have chosen to have LASIK:

    1. The risks of long-term contact lens use
    Many organisations including the FDA have announced concerns over the risks of wearing contact lenses over the long term. As they sit directly on the surface of the eye, they not only deprive the eye of oxygen but also put the wearer at risk of infection.
    This isn’t to say contacts are dangerous, but that they are only a temporary solution to vision correction that requires the wearer to follow strict guidelines and hygiene rituals.

    2. Freedom to engage in sport and recreational activities

    With glasses being an impossibility in most active sports and activities, such as martial arts, pilates, and skiing, and contact lenses being both hazardous and restrictive, particularly in water sports and swimming, many people have LASIK to attain complete freedom in their leisure.

    Even if you are not the sporty type, the ability to be free of the hassle of glasses or contacts is a more than enough reason.
    Today it’s possible to receive LASIK with a minuscule chance of complications arising, as long as it’s performed by an expert surgeon using the latest technology.


    Your safety is Dr Perrott’s paramount priority and therefore, you will undergo a thorough pre-operative screening process to ensure LASIK is the right option for you.
