Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If I Have HIV?

Here at the London Vision Clinic, we treat all our patients the same. This includes patients who have HIV too. Patients with HIV are not required to take extra precautions prior to their Laser Eye Surgery, but do have to inform the clinic about their condition. After their surgery, HIV patients are given a very broad-spectrum of antibiotics to help to prevent infection after the treatment. There is no distinction made between patients with HIV and those that do not have it so as long as HIV patients meet the standard requirements for surgery they will be treated as normal.

Suitability Explained Further…

Yes, you should indicate this when you are having an initial screening.


Mr Carp explains at the London Vision Clinic there is no different treatment for people with HIV when having Laser Eye Surgery.
