Understandably, some people get nervous on the day of their cataract surgery but, at Optilase, you can rest assured you’re in the safe hands and capable care of our team, consisting of your consultant ophthalmic Surgeon, nurses, laser technicians and other professional support staff members.
We always ask our patients to bring a close friend or family member along on the day of the procedure.
Your cataract surgery takes, on average, seven minutes per eye. It’s a very short procedure with a lasting, life-changing outcome.
Following the operation, you can relax while our nurses explain everything about the aftercare programme. They’ll give you a post-operative information pack containing eye drops and a schedule of when to take them. This will also include our 24 hour patient helpline number should you need any more information.
