We want to ensure your safe and successful recovery after Laser Eye Surgery. What’s more, we wouldn’t want to deny you a trip away due to complication in your recovery, and so, we have only the most comprehensive and detailed aftercare regimes in place.

Part of our world-leading Laser Eye Surgery aftercare involves giving you medicated eye drops to protect your eyes against infection, and also night-time shields that you can wear for seven nights after your Laser Eye Surgery to make sure you don’t rub your eyes in your sleep.

In the short video below, Lead Optometrist Alexandra Lyons explains there is no reason whatsoever that you’ll not be able to go on a plane and take a flight immediately after your one-day post-operative appointment. 

Of course, at this time, Ms Lyons states, your eyes will be a little sensitive after Laser Eye Surgery and as the cabin could be a little dry, we would recommend you use lots of drops to lubricate your eyes and keep them nice and comfortable.

Laser Eye Surgery expert Alexandra Lyons explains how you will be able to go on a flight in as little as one day after Laser Eye Surgery, and what precautions you need to take.
