Want Laser Eye Surgery? Live Outside of Wellington? No Worries.

Wellington Eye Centre welcomes patients from all over New Zealand to have their laser eye surgery performed in Wellington. We have a premier out of town package for our patients that live outside of the Wellington area.  

Wellington Eye Centre has been a pioneer of laser eye surgery for over twenty years and we were the first to introduce LASIK to New Zealand in 1995. We were also the first to introduce LASEK and SMILE laser eye surgery and remain one of only two clinics in New Zealand to perform the revolutionary SMILE laser refractive procedure.

Here are just a few reasons why you should choose Wellington Eye Centre:

  • Extensive range of laser surgeries available.
  • Fantastic out of town Package that includes free accommodation in Wellington for your surgery and assessments with your local optometrist.
  • Reassurance in the knowledge that you are dealing with a highly experienced team that prides itself on excellence in patient care.
  • Affordable payment options available.

 To find out more about what we can offer, contact us today.

Choosing Where to Have Your Laser Eye Surgery

There may be laser eye clinics that are closer to you, however, not all clinics can offer the extensive range of surgeries that we can. In fact, the revolutionary SMILE laser eye surgery is not available from any South Island clinics, with only one other clinic in New Zealand able to perform this advanced procedure, and we have patients from all over New Zealand, including Nelson, Blenheim, Palmerston North, Queenstown, Christchurch and New Plymouth.

Free local suitability assessment

Your initial assessment can be completed by your local optometrist. If you decide to proceed with laser eye surgery at the Wellington Eye Centre, you will be reimbursed for the cost of seeing the optometrist. Your assessment can also be performed in Wellington where we offer free suitability assessments at our Wellington and Napier practices.

Free Wellington hotel accommodation

We can offer you and your partner free hotel accommodation when you come to Wellington for your laser eye surgery. You will stay in a boutique hotel which is just a short walk away from our clinic. This will help make the experience of getting your surgery performed as smooth and relaxing as possible while you are away from the comforts of home. Terms and conditions do apply.

Excellence in patient care

Our equipment is state of the art, our team are experts in their fields and our process delivers excellent care for patients regardless of where they live. You can be confident you’re receiving the most advanced techniques available.


If you live outside Wellington, then it could be an inconvenience to return to Wellington for tests and checks following your eye surgery. That’s why post-operative care can be with your local optometrist at no cost to you.

Contact us if you would like any further information on coming to Wellington for your laser eye surgery, or for any questions about the procedures we offer. Alternatively, call us toll-free on 0800 733 327.

Flexible payment options

We understand that the cost of laser surgery is a significant investment and that it may be more practical to pay in instalments.  We offer 12 months interest-free finance with GE Money. You can find out more about GE Money or enquire for financing on their website.
