About High Profile laser eye surgery treatment
Before the laser eye surgery procedure
First, you must choose a laser eye surgery specialist. To ensure you’re a good candidate for laser eye surgery, the clinic you choose will perform an initial assessment to determine if you are suitable. At the consultation, the optometrist will examine your eyes, provide you with an expectation of the results you can achieve, and discuss any risks that you need to be aware of so you can consider your choice to proceed. Contact us to book your initial assessment.
During the Laser Blended Vision procedure
LASIK does not require a hospital stay. You walk in to the clinic, have the procedure, and walk out again. It only takes about 20 minutes, and you are awake the entire time. One eye is operated on at a time, followed by the other eye in the same session.
The surgeon will first numb your eyes with drops (no injections). An eye flap (a thin layer of the cornea) is created with a laser. This flap is then lifted like a hinged door and the exposed eye surface is reshaped using another laser. Then, the surgeon uses the laser to reshape the cornea, decreasing or eliminating short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and/or presbyopia. After the laser is finished, the surgeon replaces the flap to its original position. It adheres quickly, without stitches.
After the procedure is finished, you will rest for a while. Your surgeon may then prescribe a series of drops and medications to ensure you are comfortable and safe immediately after the procedure.
After the Laser Blended Vision procedure
Short-term, you can expect to see clearly and resume normal activities the day after your procedure. Laser Blended Vision will take longer to adjust to than standard laser eye surgery for short-sightedness or long-sightedness. The clinic will invite you to return for aftercare appointments 3-4 weeks after your procedure, 3 months after, and then again after 12 months.
The Top 5 questions you must ask your laser eye surgeon
No one wants to compromise on their vision. Ideally, you would like to find the surgeon who combines the right level of professional training using the most current technology combined with a wealth of experience in the specific procedure that you are undergoing.

Real patient stories after High Profile laser eye surgery
Shaena W., Reservations Manager
Since 2002, Professor Reinstein has been a very important part of Carl Zeiss Meditec’s global clinical research network. Carl Zeiss Meditec has worked in close partnership with Professor Reinstein and his staff at the London Vision Clinic on several key research initiatives including the treatment of presbyopia and high prescriptions. I believe this long-term, strategic partnership will continue to help Carl Zeiss Meditec maintain its position as a technology leader.

The procedure was quick and painless. After 20 minutes or so of the laser surgery, I was led into a darkened room for a surprise massage. A very nice touch indeed and well appreciated.
