Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If I Have Glaucoma?

Glaucoma itself is not a contraindication to Laser Eye Surgery. Of course it is very important to ascertain the extent of the glaucoma before the patient undergoes any treatment. Glaucoma is a progressive condition that may go onto cause further damage to vision after Laser Eye Surgery. Therefore, all patients are assessed on a case by case basis to establish what true benefits they can expect to achieve if they have underlying glaucoma.

Suitability Explained Further…

Yes. Laser eye treatment, however, is not a treatment for glaucoma.

Blended vision can take time to settle – may need patience, but the pre and post op care at LVC has been excellent. Staff have been patient with my concerns and clear communicates every step of the way, including reassurance during the procedure and afterwards. It’s wonderful not having to wear varifolds anymore!
