How do you manage any pain and discomfort post surgery

It’s one of the most discussed questions about Laser Eye Surgery. Often accompanied by other queries like will I need a general anaesthetic or sedative during treatment? Or can i take a sedative or tranquillizer before surgery? And yet, all these concerns stem from the same deep-seated Laser Eye Surgery myth. It’s a myth that pervaded public thought and settled in the back of our minds years ago, possibly due to the unfortunate pairing of the words ‘laser’ and ‘eye’, and not helped by tabloid scare… Read more

Can I have laser eye treatment if I am diabetic?

Thousands of diabetics have successfully had Laser Eye Surgery. However, whether or not a patient is suitable does depend on their individual circumstances, and crucially, the Laser Eye Surgery clinic they go to. Every clinic has its own guidelines on who it’ll consider for surgery. It generally comes down to two things: the technology they have available and the expertise of its surgeons. Due to the added complications that diabetes presents, patients may be turned away from clinics that are lacking in… Read more

Where does the laser eye treatment take place?

Depending on which Laser Eye Surgery clinic you go to, whether it’s a high street provider, private hospital, or independent clinic, exactly where your procedure takes place will differ. There are several commonalities, though. For instance, it’s sure to resemble an operating theatre, house various pieces of medical equipment and apparatus, and, hopefully, be home to a friendly and expert laser eye surgeon.

Can I cancel on the day if I’m too nervous?

For some people, nerves are a big part of their Laser Eye Surgery journey. In fact, as the number one reason people decide not to have Laser Eye Surgery, nerves can be their only experience with the idea and the single determining factor between a life of greater vision and a life stuck with inferior glasses or contacts.

What happens if I move my eyes during laser eye surgery?

Clutching a sharp bladed instrument the surgeon calmly says to the patient, “Don’t worry, I’ve done this hundreds of times before and haven’t made a mistake yet.” Not entirely filled with confidence, the patient smiles, and the surgeon accepts the gesture to begin manually slicing a precise flap in their cornea. Then, using a scalpel, he pries the wafer-thin flap away and winks at the patient, who by this time has huge globules of sweat running down their face and is thinking… Read more

What are the long-term effects of Laser Eye Surgery?

Not many forms of treatment in this world are permanent fixes. Medical equipment, like glasses and crutches, offer us temporary relief. Drugs generally rid us of illnesses for a short while, yet only get a hold on more serious or chronic conditions with continual dosage. Not even more invasive surgeries are free from slowly degrading results and recurring problems. Modern medicine works a little differently; it treats patients on an individual basis and gets to the root of the problem to solve it… Read more

It’s normal to be nervous about Laser Eye Surgery

Nerves are extremely useful, but they can easily get the better of us. Just like in the final moments on a runway before a plane takes off. You buckle up your seat belt and watch intently as the cabin crew go through the safety procedures. Suddenly, the man sitting across from you seems unusually shifty. Then there’s a sudden thud followed by what you believe to be pieces of the plane’s fuselage falling off. Maybe today is the day. You cower and… Read more

Can I bring someone with me when I come for my Laser Eye Surgery?

Our eyes play a huge role in our lives. They dictate everything from how we see the world and interact with other people to how we navigate from place to place and keep ourselves out of harms way. So, when the two incredibly intricate globular organs are due for an upgrade via Laser Eye Surgery, there’s no doubt you’ll feel a little uneasy.
