Can I see my Laser Eye Surgery being performed?

You’re looking forward to having greater vision following the surgery, but what exactly do you see during the procedure? This is one of the most common concerns that frequents the mind of those considering Laser Eye Surgery, along with similar queries like ‘Will the treatment hurt?’ And, ‘How long does the procedure take?’ This is perfectly natural — in fact, it’s best practice to find out all the details of the day of the procedure. We also advise doing the same for…Read more

What are the long-term effects of Laser Eye Surgery?

  Not many forms of treatment in this world are permanent fixes. Medical equipment like glasses and crutches offer us temporary relief. Drugs generally rid us of illnesses for a short while, yet only get a hold on more serious or chronic conditions with continual dosage. Not even more invasive surgeries are free from slowly degrading results and recurring problems. Modern medicine works a little differently; it treats patients on an individual basis and gets to the root of the problem to solve…Read more

When can I drive after laser eye treatment?

After having your gall bladder removed, it can be around 2 weeks before you’re back into your normal routine. What about knee surgery? Try more like 6 weeks. Hip replacement? I’m afraid that’s 3 months away from the dance floor. The recovery period following surgery can often be long and gruelling. But unfortunately, there’s simply no avoiding it. So when it comes to Laser Eye Surgery, you’ll expect nothing less than weeks and weeks of impaired movement, eye patches, and plenty of…Read more

How soon after laser eye treatment can I swim?

You’re told one of the most important things you can do after Laser Eye Surgery is to keep your eyes from drying out. Within 24 hours using your tablet or phone, reading, and watching TV is all fine, as long as you keep up with your lubricating drops. Flying at this point in time is also fine but again, you’re reminded to keep up with your drops. Our clinical staff may even advise some gel on long haul flights to help with…Read more

It’s normal to be nervous about Laser Eye Surgery

Nerves are extremely useful, but they can easily get the better of us. Just like in the final moments on a runway before a plane takes off. You buckle up your seat belt and watch intently as the cabin crew go through the safety procedures. Suddenly, the man sitting across from you seems unusually shifty. Then there’s a sudden thud followed by what you believe to be pieces of the plane’s fuselage falling off. Maybe today is the day. You cower and…Read more

Should I wait for a better procedure to be developed? What’s on the horizon?

We all know the feeling when you come out of the store incredibly satisfied with your purchase: It’s the latest and greatest on the market, with the most cutting edge technology, so you’re told. You’re content, and for several weeks you happily go about using your new vehicle or product, bragging at any opportunity about how great and revolutionary it is. That’s until one day you notice a particular story in the news or an advert on the T.V., “Introducing the new…Read more

Can I bring someone with me when I come for my Laser Eye Surgery?

Our eyes play a huge role in our lives. They dictate everything from how we see the world and interact with other people to how we navigate from place to place and keep ourselves out of harms way. So, when the two incredibly intricate globular organs are due for an upgrade via Laser Eye Surgery, there’s no doubt you’ll feel a little uneasy. Having your vision altered by an unfamiliar person with strange instruments — heck, even just the thought of someone just…Read more

Is there a waiting list for consultations?

It wasn’t easy, but you’ve finally come to the decision you want to have Laser Eye Surgery. You’ve put in the hours of research, made numerous calls and visits to clinics, mulled over all the provided literature, and even made sure you have room for it in you schedule. But hold on a minute, there’s still one potentially lengthy and arduous part of the process that’s missing. This is the period between the day you book your initial consultation and the actual…Read more

Irrational Laser Eye Surgery fears

Almost everyone has an irrational fear or two. Maybe you’re terrified of spiders. Or you dread going to the dentist. Maybe you can’t stand being in small spaces. Or you run a mile when you see a mouse. For me, even the thought of being in a crowd of people is enough to send my heart rate through the roof. Most of these irrational fears form in our early childhood, generally due to a particularly stressful situation or experience, or as a…Read more
