How should you feel after your initial consultation?

From the initial consultation, you will be able to tell a lot about the clinic and how the rest of the process is going to unfold. For instance, some clinics rush through the initial consultation, spending as little as an hour drawing up your treatment plan before sending you on your way and moving onto the next person. Others, however, spend as long as three and a half hours with you. Not only is the experience more relaxed and friendlier, but it… Read more

Eyes wide open: “Do I really have to be awake during Laser Eye Surgery?”

If Laser Eye Surgery didn’t scare you enough thanks to its unfortunate name, then the fact that you have to be awake during the entire thing should do it. In fact, surveys have shown that this is one of the most common reasons people decide against treatment, even before having an initial consultation. The fact is most surgical procedures require anaesthetic, and other than a few numbing eye drops, Laser Eye Surgery is performed whilst patients are fully conscious.  Just like its… Read more

What is The Likelihood of Needing an Enhancement? [video]

Laser Eye Surgery is similar to glasses and contacts in that, if it’s not up to standard, you can always have it done again or go elsewhere. The thing is, though, unlike glasses and contacts, you expect Laser Eye Surgery to be a one-time jobby. And it is — the vast majority of people who have it never need to return to the clinic again other than for their scheduled aftercare appointments.
