About us

Binetter Eye Centre

The Binetter Eye Centre is a specialist eye health provider. It was formed through the unification of the highly regarded Australian Institute of Eye Surgery and The Cataract Clinic, both established in 1996.

Our modern laser eye surgery is a patient-focused centre of excellence with the sole aim of achieving the best possible results using the safest and most reliable techniques.

Our head surgeon: Dr Ron Binetter (MBBS, FRANZCO, FRACS)

The centre is led by Dr Ron Binetter. A global LASIK pioneer, he is perhaps Australia’s foremost practitioner. With nearly 40 years of experience, over 38,000 successful procedures to his credit and a highly trained team around him, Dr Binetter really is the keystone of the centre that bears his name.

The culmination of his life’s work, the Binetter Eye Centre is a full surgical facility that has been purpose-built to provide the best possible treatment for many kinds of eye conditions.

About the eye conditions we treat

Our technology: the highest-quality and most trusted equipment

Our operating theatres and consulting rooms are outfitted with the best eye-surgery equipment available. Everything is rigorously regularly serviced, revised, updated and maintained by the manufacturers themselves on a best-practice schedule. Every procedure and result is monitored and reviewed by our medical director.

Schwind Amaris excimer laser technology

Imagine a surgical laser that doesn’t use heat yet achieves ultra-precise results. That is what our Amaris Excimer Laser offers. As an ultraviolet laser, it utilises argon and fluorine gas to create a cool beam of light that breaks molecular bonds, gently vaporising the unwanted tissue with microscopic exactness.
