We stay up to date.
Our Gold Coast team regularly undergoes training to stay updated on the latest industry practices in eye surgery. Dr. Wei is also member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the European Society of Refractive & Cataract Surgeons, and the Australasian Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons.
At Pacific Eye Clinic, we believe in providing preventative treatment to maximise the health of your eyes into the future. Prevention is always better than the cure, which is why our team strives to provide simple solutions and educate clients on the best ways to look after their eyes and deal with any issues that may arise.
This includes the use of vitamins and supplements to slow the progression of diseases, as well as booking ongoing examinations for clients who need it.
Staying up to date with annual eye examinations is especially important for people at risk of glaucoma. These comprehensive examinations measure pressure in your eyes, check your optic nerves, and test your visual field for changes in central and side vision.
Dr. Wei is a principal eye surgeon for Lasersight, and experienced in a range of refractive procedures, including Advanced PRK, LASIK, ICL and lens surgery. In fact, he’s completed more than 15,000 procedures over the course of his career.
During the last several years, Lasik has become increasingly popular throughout Australia, with many people’s vision restored without the use of corrective lenses! For more information on Lasik, click here.
Services We Offer
Cataracts are the most common cause of visual impairment in people over 60 years of age in Australia. Symptoms include blurred vision, spots in front of the eyes and increased sensitivity to glare. We provide cataract surgery for rapid visual recovery.
Diabetes can cause diabetic retinopathy which, over time, leads to loss of vision, including blurring, blind spots and floaters. Left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can cause complete blindness. If you suspect you are suffering from it, book an examination today with our principal eye surgeon.
We offer ongoing examinations and treatments for glaucoma. This disease cannot be prevented, but if diagnosed and treated early, can be controlled. We aim to minimise the symptoms and halt the progression as much as possible.
Macular degeneration refers to the loss of central vision as a result of age-related changes to the retina or macula. It is the most common cause of legal blindness in Australia. We offer a range of treatments to slow degeneration.
We offer a range of refractive laser surgeries to correct vision issues. Often, the results are almost immediate, with little to no post-operative pain. Talk to the team at Pacific Eye Care about booking in LASIK treatment today.
Signs that you require a visit to the ophthalmologist include changes in colour vision, changes in the field of vision or experiencing double vision, seeing spots or flashes of light, loss of vision in one or both eyes, and more. You should also visit an ophthalmologist if you experience eye pain or physical eye changes. This may include your eyes turning inwards or outwards.
If you’re unsure, contact our eye clinic for advice.
In short, optometrists examine and treat common eye problems, such as dry eyes and diagnose early eye conditions as well as provide spectacles.
Ophthalmologists are medical doctors with specific training in eye diseases and surgery. They treat eye conditions that are more serious, such as cataracts, glaucoma, laser treatments and injections for macula degeneration. Optometrists perform routine eye exams rather than emergencies. They usually refer you to an ophthalmologist for further treatments or surgery when required.
Orthoptists treat eye movement abnormalities and defects of vision, working as part of a healthcare team to support issues related to amblyopia, strabismus, and binocular vision. They primarily focus on identifying early eye problems in children.
Ophthalmologists cover and treat more serious eye problems that are more prevalent in adulthood, such as corneal and retinal conditions.
