ABOUT CATARACT SURGERY at KindSIGHT | BRISBANE

At KindSIGHT, we live by a philosophy that caring for you goes beyond just treating eyes. It’s our mission to allay your concerns and provide a first class experience through genuine care, communication and connection.

The comprehensive consultation and pre-operative assessment starts ideally with a detailed historical eye health report from your optometrist. This, in conjunction with the Lifestyle & SPEED (dry eye) questionnaire, creates a platform of information the KindSIGHT team will build on.

It is important that you have time to consider your options and are in a position to make an informed decision about your surgery. Therefore, two separate appointments are scheduled for you prior to surgery in order to facilitate this.
