Sometimes it’s the smallest decisions that can change your life. Forever.

Clear vision, tailor made for you. #Priceless

LASIK is the buzzword but laser vision correction isn’t a case of one-size-fits-all. We offer a range of vision correction procedures, customized for you based on your micro-anatomy, age, prescription and lifestyle. You might be young, craving action or more mature with an adventurous side that wants to enjoy the good things in life. Once you realize you deserve better vision, choosing to see with your own eyes again may be the best decision you ever make.

Stay committed to your decision to see clearly with your own eyes and nothing else.

Stay flexible in your approach.

How do you choose a LASIK surgeon?

Like the intricate process of luxury watchmaking, Laser Vision Correction is a delicate combination of art and precision. For a true refractive surgeon, it is not only a form of responsibility, but also a kind of pleasure and an instrument of compassion. A surgeon’s skill is not a dispensable luxury but a simple necessity.

Dr Lourens Coetzee’s love for photography and art, combined with an appreciation for mathematics and optics explains his special interest in cataract, cornea and refractive surgery. His ophthalmology practices embody his motto: passion for people, passion for eyes, passion for technology.

Dr Melody Sun has a keen interest in problem-solving, managing the eye and restoring vision.  This curiosity regarding surgery and the eye prompted her to embark on a medical career and later specialise in ophthalmology, which she believes embodies the art and precision of delicate surgical techniques. 

Dr Sun’s entire academic pathway has been a testament to her quest for perfection, having achieved distinction and honours at every stage of her qualifications. Recently, she was awarded the registrar of the year prize as the top ophthalmology registrar of 2021 in the ophthalmology circuit at the University of the Witwatersrand.

Dr Stacey Mallabone is an aspiring ophthalmologist and currently a medical officer in ophthalmology. She is a humanitarian who finds joy in helping others. Evidence of this is her volunteer work with an organisation that tutors and mentors children from underprivileged backgrounds.

She completed her medical degree at Wits University in 2018and her internship in 2020 at Victoria Hospital in Cape Town.

During her community service, she took a special interest in ophthalmological trauma cases while working in the trauma unit at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. She also completed her Acute Trauma, Cardiac and Paediatric Life Support courses.

To start off her career in ophthalmology she has already passed her ophthalmology primary examination and plans to complete her diploma in ophthalmology later this year. Working with a team of ophthalmologists, she will certainly have no shortage of practical experience when she commences her specialization.

She makes her life an adventure by running and cycling

What do our patients think?


Had glasses for most of my life and was frustrated with them. Had LASIK 6 weeks ago with Dr Coetzee and I am completely satisfied with the results. Vision is great. The service was great and throughout the process I was given good explanations for what was going to happen and what to expect. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering it

My compliments to Dr Coetzee and his staff (especially Werner!) for the professional, kind and compassionate manner in which my 88 year old mom was treated over many months. I have nothing but admiration and appreciation for the time and trouble taken in her care and treatment. Also to the kind lady who made the glorious coffee - that made my mom's day too! A great big thank you for your wonderful service. I would recommend your services to anyone needing professional ophthalmic support. Many thanks.
