Fitting Laser Eye Surgery into a hectic work schedule

How many times has someone said to you, “don’t worry, it will only take a minute”, for whatever it is to actually take around six hours? At least that’s what it feels like. Because not only does it not just take a minute, it completely disrupts your schedule, throws the rest of your day off, and after all is said and done, seem to set you back several days. Working as part of a large team, this happens to me all the… Read more

How long after Laser Eye Surgery will I have to wait to fly? [VIDEO]

Most people don’t need an excuse to jump on a plane to at the very least get a change of scenery. And after having Laser Eye Surgery, there may be endless reasons you may take to the skies. For instance, it may be a business trip, a planned holiday, a honeymoon, or simply flying home after visiting us to have world-class treatment, or equally it may be to revel in your new frameless freedom and go skydiving, to travel the world, or… 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

Can I eat or drink prior to my Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’ve ever had surgery in the past, it’s likely you’ll be familiar with the period of fasting that comes beforehand. If your surgery was a morning procedure, then this may have just meant skipping breakfast. But if you had it scheduled for midday or later, this could have meant going more than 12 hours without eating. Fasting certainly has its uses, but for me, having to do it during the hours leading up to surgery is far from ideal. Comfort food… Read more

Can LASIK Or Laser Eye Surgery Correct Double Vision?

Like one of those dull headaches that appears when you wake up in the morning, double vision can come about for a heck of a lot of reasons. In fact, if I were to try and list them all here, I might start to get double vision myself. Despite it being such a hard symptom to pin to an exact cause, there are a number of conditions with which double vision is commonly associated. Potential causes of double vision, also known as… 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. There are, however, a small number of cases when their… Read more

What Should I Do to Prepare For Laser Eye Surgery? [video]

You’re going into the clinic soon to have a life-changing procedure. Safe to say, you want to be prepared. Not only do you not want to overlook or forget to do something you should have and look silly, more importantly, you don’t want to do anything that could impact the treatment itself. Fortunately, as Prof Reinstein points out in the video below, in preparing for your treatment, there’s really nothing you need to lose sleep over. In fact, prior to the actual… Read more

What causes dry eyes after laser vision correction? [VIDEO]

Nerves play an important role in the Laser Eye Surgery recovery process. I’m not talking about the jitters, patients are usually very calm by this time — I’m on about a different set of nerves: those on the surface of your eye. The nerves on the surface of the eye are momentarily interrupted because of the pain-free laser process. Thankfully, though, these nerves possess the incredible power to regenerate over a period of three to six months, and will further regenerate over… Read more
