  • All-in-one – your assessment and surgery organised for the same day so you only have to spend one night in Auckland, with the first post–op check the following day prior to you returning home
  • Overnight accommodation at a nearby hotel is included in your surgery costs
  • The 2-week and 3-month post-operative appointments are provided by your local optometrist

Your laser surgery experience

On your arrival at Auckland Eye, you will meet our laser technician and your surgeon, who will take you through your assessment. We will take precise measurements of your eyes enabling us to provide a personalised treatment plan.

Your SMILE or LASIK procedure will be scheduled for later that same day. Even though the procedure doesn’t take long, please expect to be with us for about 3 hours for full assessment and surgery to be completed. After your surgery you will head to your accommodation for the evening and a good night’s sleep. Auckland Eye will pay for your accommodation though all incidentals will be at your own expense.

Post-operative appointments

Your 2 week and 2 month check ups can be provided by your own local optometrist. However, if you have any concerns, please feel free to contact us directly, and if further post-op appointments are required it may be necessary to come back and see us here.

Out of town costs

You’ll need to cover the cost of your travel to and from Auckland and any living expenses you incur while you are here (food, drink etc), but your surgery and one night’s accommodation are both covered by the normal price of surgery.
