Ongoing Aftercare at London Vision Clinic

When considering having Laser Eye Surgery, it is only natural to focus solely on the procedure itself. After all, having a laser pointed into your eye would be a daunting prospect for anyone, right? But what most people don’t realise is that aftercare, throughout your recovery and beyond, is just as important. Oh, and don’t worry about those lasers – they really aren’t a big deal!

Most people will have a completely smooth recovery from Laser Eye Surgery. Nonetheless, follow-up appointments are crucial for keeping track of your results and any side effects you may experience.

What happens at my post-operative appointments?

At your first post-operative appointment, the day after your procedure, your surgeon will check that your surgery went as well as possible and will advise you on any measures you will need to take throughout your recovery. This will include continued use of eye drops as well as signing you off for work and other activities such as driving.

This initial visit will typically be followed by another appointment at 3-4 weeks, 3 months, and one year, though it will vary from patient to patient. During these appointments, your optometrist will guide you through tests to check your vision and answer any questions you have regarding your recovery.

Support During Your Recovery Period

At London Vision Clinic, we understand the importance of thorough aftercare, as well as ongoing support for each and every one of our patients. That’s why we go the extra mile to make sure you have easy access to your surgeon after your surgery. You will be provided with their personal phone number so you can get in touch with them immediately if you have any concerns.

Within a few months, your vision will likely have settled, side effects such as dry eyes will have resolved, and you will be enjoying all the perks of glasses-free vision, such as perusing restaurant menus without holding them at arm’s length or drastically enlarging the font on your phone to read a text. But that doesn’t mean we won’t still be on hand if you have any queries or concerns.

Ongoing Aftercare

These post-operative appointments allow us to keep a close eye on your recovery; however, we are on hand at any other time to support you. And this support doesn’t end when you reach one-year post-surgery. In fact, all London Vision Clinic patients can count on ongoing aftercare for many years to come.

Ongoing aftercare is included in the cost of your Laser Eye Surgery treatment (excluding any tests/services carried out by other providers). This even includes any necessary enhancement procedures required within one year of your surgery.

Our aftercare is one of the many factors that sets us apart as a Laser Eye Surgery provider. Take a look at some of our patient reviews below:

Haoxi Lu – “Had an excellent laser eye experience from LVC, they took excellent care of me throughout the process. One year later I still have 20/20 vision and I’m super pleased with my life changing experience. Mr Stuart is the best!

It’s also great to know that there is continued aftercare and that the team will be looking after me for years to come.”

John M – “Delighted that I chose London Vision, their aftercare is second to none. A year later a very thorough examination from very friendly and professional people from the front desk and all the staff. Highly recommended.”
