Why Might I Need to Contact My Surgeon After Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’re considering the possibility of Laser Eye Surgery, you want to know that you are in the best hands possible. Of course, this means choosing a clinic with the very best results for prescriptions similar to your own; a comprehensive screening and aftercare program is likely also high on your list. But what about a personal touch? What if you need to talk to your surgeon after the procedure?

Laser Eye Surgery is an area of medicine that is characterised by innovation and development. Following over four decades since its inception, this life-changing procedure has evolved to become one of the safest elective procedures in the world. But while complications are extremely rare, we understand that patients require as much peace of mind as possible when it comes to their treatment.

That’s why we provide each patient with 24/7 access to their performing surgeon following their procedure.

Why might I need to contact my surgeon?

On the day of your surgery, you will be given the mobile number of the surgeon who performs your treatment. This means that they will be able to assist if any medical emergencies arise (though again, this is extremely unlikely). So, in what kind of circumstances might you require access to your surgeon?

As our expert Laser Eye Surgeon, Mr Glenn Carp, explains in the video below, this allows your surgeon to assist in case of any kind of medical emergency.

As the person who performed your treatment, in many cases, your surgeon will be the best-equipped person to deal with any problems. Furthermore, to ensure the very best outcomes, your surgeon needs to be aware of any complications as soon as possible.

If you have any non-emergency queries following your treatment, the London Vision Clinic also offers a 24-hour after-hours telephone service. This allows us to offer support and advice whenever you need it.

We believe that all patients should have access to their surgeons as an emergency point of contact at any time after the procedure. So, if you’re still in the process of choosing the right Laser Eye Surgery clinic for you, why not choose one that puts your recovery first.
