Laser treatment in the Eastern Cape sees the dawn of a new phase in ophthalmic surgery with the arrival of a carbon dioxide UltraPulse Laser. The laser, imported from the United States, has just been installed in the theatre at the Eye and Laser Institute in Cape Road and is presently only the second of its kind in South Africa. Another new addition is the LightSheer Diode Laser. This laser system is the newest & latest state-of-the-art Diode laser for the permanent removal of any unwanted hair and is the only laser in the world rewarded FDA approval for permanent removal of hair. Both these laser systems are available at the Laser Clinic.
