Seperating Laser Eye Surgery facts from fiction

Laser Eye Surgery - Fact or Fiction?

Deciding to start your Laser Eye Surgery journey is a big decision, and like most big decisions our mind can work overtime when we fear the unknown. And that’s entirley understandable.

While there’s lots of information out there about the procedure, the internet can be a wild and wonderful place full of fiction as well as facts! So maybe it’s time to let the experts, Optilase Ireland’s No. 1 Eye Surgery Provider tell you how it really is!

Laser Eye Surgery is Painful - FICTION
The good news is that the laser vision correction is painless. During the procedure your eye is numbed using anaesthetic drops and you are offered Diazepam to reduce any anxiety you may have as well as to relax muscle tension. Depending on your treatment type, there can be some discomfort in the days after your treatment but this is generally temporary and in most cases will be very mild. So no, there’s no need to worry about pain.

Both eyes can be treated on the same day - FACT
Due to advancements in Laser Eye Surgery, it is perfectly safe to treat both eyes on the same day. In total, it takes approximately 10-15 minutes to have both eyes treated. If for any reason you would prefer to have your eyes treated separately, the team in Optilase can arrange this for you at no extra charge, but equally most patients like to get both eyes done together.

Eyes look different after Laser Eye Surgery - FICTION
No, there is no permanent change in the appearance of your eyes after the procedure. The day after surgery, your eyes should be white and clear. The overall healing process can take 4-5 days and during this time the eye may appear slightly red, this is perfectly normal.
