Laser Eye Surgery at the Wellington Eye Centre

Laser eye surgery is a procedure which is designed to improve your vision without glasses and contact lenses. It is a short and simple procedure with lifetime benefits, performed millions of times worldwide. At the Wellington Eye Centre, we offer three types of laser eye surgery - SMILE, LASIK and PRK. We are also one of the first clinics in New Zealand to offer laser blended vision technology. Read more about laser eye surgery and the types of procedures available.

Why the Wellington Eye Centre?

Our ophthalmologist, Dr Andrew Logan, was the first eye surgeon in New Zealand to perform LASIK eye surgery in 1995 and he continues to stay at the cutting edge of new technology and developments in ophthalmology. In October 2013, we became the first clinic in New Zealand to offer SMILE - a revolutionary procedure designed to correct short sight and astigmatism.

We use the VisuMax femtosecond laser - a leading piece of technology in the global market due to its precision and accuracy. With Dr Logan’s expertise and this technology, you’re in safe hands.

Our customers are our priority and we ensure that the entire process is as stress free as possible. From the initial assessment, to the final check-up post-surgery, we focus on every detail of our patients’ experience.

What we offer


Your journey to clearer vision begins with a free initial suitability assessment at either our Napier or Wellington clinic. If you live elsewhere in New Zealand we can usually assess your potential suitability over the phone.



All the laser vision correction procedures we offer have the same fixed price of $3,380 per eye. The cost of your medical assessment and twelve months post operative care within New Zealand are included in this fee.



We offer twelve months interest free finance for laser surgery through GEM Visa, subject to their standard terms and conditions. You may have other finance options available to you.

How to apply


To make it easier for those of you who live outside of the Wellington area to travel to our clinic for laser surgery, we offer one-off, free hotel accommodation while you are with us for your surgery, subject to terms and conditions.
