What Post-Operative Care Should I Expect After Laser Eye Surgery?

There are a lot of factors to consider when 1) deciding to go ahead with Laser Eye Surgery, and 2) finding the right clinic. You will likely have considered the cost of treatment, the location of the clinic, and even the experience of the surgeon, but what about the level of post-operative aftercare?

In past surveys of prospective London Vision Clinic clients, we have found that post-operative care is, in fact, one of the six most important factors to patients looking for the right clinic! And why shouldn’t it be?

It just so happens that we take this matter just as seriously – if not more so than our patients!

No one wants to feel like the next product on a conveyor belt, being rushed along to make room for the next patient – which, unfortunately, appears to be some providers’ approach to treatment. That’s why, here at London Vision Clinic, our relationship with our patients doesn’t simply end as soon as their procedure is complete.

In fact, the day of your surgery is just one phase of our client-patient relationship. The next phase concerns your thorough post-operative care.

Post-Operative Care at the London Vision Clinic

There are several aspects to your Laser Eye Surgery post-operative care. Initially, you will want to know that your procedure went as planned – a fact that will be confirmed by your surgeon immediately after your treatment.

Other aspects of your aftercare will have been discussed with you by one of our patient care coordinators before you head into the surgery room.

This will likely have begun as soon as you took the plunge and decided to go ahead with Laser Eye Surgery. Our friendly and knowledgeable clinic staff are always on hand to help with any queries – including helping you to book a hotel for the evening of your treatment or plan your journey home.

Comprehensive Care

Also before your treatment, you will have been given your aftercare pack. This bag contains everything you will need to ensure a smooth recovery from your procedure, from lubricating eye drops and painkillers to information leaflets and sleep masks!

Our world-renowned surgeons are also well known for going above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to post-operative care. Not only do they tend to check in with patients in the hours following their treatment, but they also provide their personal phone numbers should the patient experience any concerns relating to their treatment.

If this sounds like the level of personal, professional post-operative care that you were hoping for, but were concerned might be unrealistic – fear not! Your expectations are not unreasonably high or unattainable – you just had to keep searching to find the right clinic for you…

Patient Testimonials

Our patients are consistently thrilled with the level of post-operative care provided at London Vision Clinic. Let’s take a look at what some of them had to say:

“The treatment provided and the care both before and after the surgery were outstanding! The staff were friendly and professional, Glenn [Carp] was so calming and knowledgeable. He really added the personal touch, checking up after the surgery and keeping in contact throughout the process.”

– Ellie (2024)

“Outside of the incredible 20/20 vision I’ve suddenly got for the first time in 30 years (just in time for my wedding extra thank you for that!), the after care and genuine concern for my wellbeing was wonderful. It made me feel like I wasn’t just a number and they had an interest in my health even a year later.”

– De Haan (2024)

“After my operation I was looked after very well, even texts from the surgeon to make sure that I was comfortable and if any problems not to hesitate to call. It has been a month now since I had the procedure and the after care continues. My only regret is not having it done sooner.”

– Mrs Reilly (2023)

“One year later I still have 20/20 vision and I’m super pleased with my life changing experience. Mr Stuart is the best! It’s also great to know that there is continued aftercare and that the team will be looking after me for years to come :)”

– Haoxi Lui (2021)
