Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If I Have High Blood Pressure?
Your suitability for Laser Eye Surgery will be determined at your comprehensive and extraordinarily thorough initial screening. At the London Vision Clinic there is a 98% chance that we actually will be able to help you. Some clinics – with less sophisticated treatment and assessment methods – turn away up to 20% of people coming to them as they believe they are not suitable for Laser Eye Surgery, but that does not always mean that those people cannot be helped.
Having high blood pressure is not a contraindication for Laser Eye Surgery. However, when we do your pre-operative assessment, we take a full medical history and this is very important as it helps us assess your suitability.
