Adelaide Eye & Laser Centre (AE&LC) is a purpose built centre for performing cataract, corneal and eye laser surgery, including LASIK, PRK and now SMILE.
In February 1992 Dr Peter Ingham, our current Medical Director, introduced laser refractive surgery to South Australia at the Ashford Community Hospital campus. Due to high demand the Centre quickly outgrew this initial space and in 1996 moved to the Anzac Highway based campus of Ashford and was established as the Ashford Eye and Laser Centre.
Continued growth and success of the business saw it move again in 1999 to its current location, a purpose built facility at 215 Greenhill Road, Eastwood. At that time it was re-named Adelaide Eye & Laser Centre (AE&LC).
The centre is a purpose built consulting and operating facility for the speciality of cataract and eye laser (refractive) surgery with full accreditation. We are the first accredited facility of our kind in South Australia. Using this facility we are able to offer our patients the very best options in eye surgery.
Medical Director, Dr Peter Ingham, has introduced and refined various refractive surgical techniques in Adelaide during this period. Since 1992 Dr Ingham has completed more than 25,000 laser vision correction procedures and over 20,000 cataract procedures.
Currently we have two practising surgeons, Dr Peter Ingham (Medical Director) and Dr Aanchal Gupta (Surgeon – Cataract, Corneal and Refractive). We are a monitored hospital theatre and facility supported by the highest quality nurses, technicians, optometrists and administrative staff.
Patients are referred to us via a network of general practitioners, eye specialists and optometrists or independently chose us in their journey to optimise their vision.
