Will Laser Eye Surgery will work for me?
You won’t know until you ask! You can get a completely free consultation at Optilase, and meet with a Laser Optometrist who will carry out a range of eye scans and an assessment to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Laser Eye Surgery.
Who Can benefit From Laser Eye Surgery?
It depends on your eye problem. For example, people with a very high or very low prescription for their corrective eyewear may not benefit, or those with certain eye conditions that make them poor candidates for the procedure.
This would all be determined in a detailed eye exam with the Laser Optometrist. If they don’t think you’d benefit, they won’t put you forward for surgery! It’s that simple.
What Happens If I am A Suitable Candidate?
The Optometrist will explain the procedure and answer any questions for you, so you’ll be completely informed and comfortable with your decision. The procedure, what to expect, and aftercare will all be explained to you; it’s quick, safe, painless and effective. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet with your Ophthalmic Surgeon before the procedure to talk about any last minutes questions or concerns.
Does Laser Eye Surgery Hurt?
Not at all. It’s completely pain-free. Depending on the specific procedure, your eyes might feel a bit gritty afterwards. You’ll be awake during the procedure, but very effective anaesthetic eye drops are used. There are no needles!
Recovery time will depend on what kind of surgery is performed, but you’ll know all of the details beforehand and can plan for them as required. The whole procedure only takes a few minutes for each eye. All of the details are very well explained beforehand and your Ophthalmic Surgeon will tell you exactly what to expect.
