What Is The Importance Of Safety Tests? [video]

Prior to performing any part of the procedure, every single surgery requires extensive safety checks.  We check and re-check all of the patients’ measurements, as well as the equipment and instruments used during the procedure. These checks are done not only by the our optometrists, nursing team, and laser technicians, but also personally by the surgeon performing the procedure. We are absolutely committed to operating well within safety parameters: we never compromise on this principle, and we demonstrate it through an almost… Read more

With so many different treatment types, brand names, and abbreviations, diving further and further into Laser Eye Surgery can often make you feel like you’re going backwards.

How Does Treatment For Reading Vision Differ From Conventional Laser Eye Surgery? [video]

Here at the London Vision Clinic we are very fortunate to be able to offer patients who have become presbyopic, which means, patients whose reading has drifted out of focus Laser Eye Surgery. This is age related and worsens as you get older. In order to fix this, we use a process called PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision where we focus the patient’s dominant eye for distance, and focus the non-dominant eye for near. We do it in such a way that the… Read more

What is the worst thing that can happen after Laser Eye Surgery? [Video]

The level of risk of Laser Eye Surgery broadly depends on two factors: Where you have the surgery, and the condition of your eyesight before having surgery. As Professor Reinstein explains in the video below, there’s a range of competency in the Laser Eye Surgery field that means the chances of something going wrong can vary from clinic to clinic. Rushed consultations, low-grade technology, a lack of expertise or experience; these are all things which heighten your risk and make choosing where… Read more

How exactly does laser vision correction work? [VIDEO]

It sounds like something that pops up on a computer screen when it’s malfunctioning. But as they are built into our hard drives, or bodies, from the beginning, a refractive error isn’t something we can necessarily avoid. Pretty much everyone has the makings of a refractive error. This means that to some degree or another, there is a problem with your eye’s ability to accurately focus light on the retina. However, although such discrepancies are more common than not, they don’t affect… Read more

Can I Take A Tranquilizer or Sedative (i.e. Valium) Before The Procedure? [video]

Do I have to be awake during the procedure? It’s the question on many people’s lips when they start researching Laser Eye Surgery. Encountering some fear and resistance about the procedure, they think if only they could take a valium, have a few strong gins, or be completely knocked out then they would have it done no problem. However, things like general anaesthesia have their own risks, not to mention they can significantly increase the costs. But the main reason isn’t either… Read more

How Can I Interpret Statistical Results Of Laser Eye Surgery? [video]

It is very important prior to undergoing Laser Eye Surgery to understand the statistical likelihood of you being able to achieve your results.  Of course not everybody is a statistician, but at the London Vision Clinic we prepare graphs for all of our patients to clearly illustrate what will be achieved through surgery, based on the patient’s individual prescription. Of course, if patients have any difficulty understanding these graphs, their patient care coordinator will be available to talk them through what the… Read more

Can My Vision Return To Its Original Level After Laser Eye Surgery? [video]

Vision is likely to return to what patients could see through their best pair of glasses after Laser Eye Surgery. Many people ask if their vision can return to what it was before wearing glasses. This is extremely rare as it would mean that vision would have to regress all the way back to its starting point. The cornea may heal a little off its targets but it is very unlikely that it will heal right the way back to its original… Read more

What Are My Chances Of Seeing 20/20 After Laser Eye Surgery? [video]

The chances of seeing 20/20 are extremely high.  Again each clinic will be able to provide you with specific results based on your specific refractive error.  This is the key point in terms of understanding this question.  Each clinic with their technology will be able to provide you or should be able to provide you before the treatment with an idea of what the likelihood of your achieving 20/20 is. In short, the results after Laser Eye Surgery usually depend on your… Read more

Why Do Different Laser Eye Surgery Clinics Charge Such Different Prices? [video]

The Laser Eye Surgery industry is a bit of minefield at some levels.  There are a lot of different levels towards patient care and patients will be subjected to a multitude of differences when it comes to different pricing structures in comparison to what we have here at the London Vision Clinic.  Essentially what we have tried to do at the London Vision Clinic is to offer patients a full package as a one price fits all.  We are not here to… Read more
