Does Anything At The Initial Screening Cause Discomfort Or Pain?

Mr Glenn Carp – “At no point during the treatment should one experience any major discomfort of pain and some of the drops that we use might tingle a little bit for a few seconds on instilling them into the eye but generally that is not a major feature and it only lasts for a couple of seconds.”

Initial Screening Explained Further…

The simple answer to the question of any pain or discomfort for the initial screening is ‘No’. There is nothing done at the initial screening or ophthalmic exam that would cause any level of discomfort.

It’s a cliche but this really has changed my life! My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner! There was no pain during the procedure or after and my eyesight now is better than when I wore contact lenses! It’s amazing to wake up in the morning and be able to see without trying to find my glasses!– Fiona Davis
