LASER SURGERY INFORMATION

Should I have Laser Surgery?

Laser Surgery could be the right choice for you if:


  • You suffer from near-sightedness, far-sightedness, or have astigmatism and have a vision deficiency within the accepted range for treatment.

  • You dislike being dependent on spectacles or contact lenses.

  • You are restricted in sports, work and other activities because of spectacles or contact lenses.

  • You would be happy if your natural vision was improved, even if corrective lenses were occasionally necessary.

Does the procedure hurt?


One of the main advantages of Laser Surgery is that there is very little discomfort
involved with the process. Local anesthetic is given as eye drops before surgery to numb the eye. Patients are awake and alert during the procedure. Most patients have both eye's treated the same day.


What can I expect after the procedure?


The day of your procedure your vision will seem out of focus. Generally, sharp visual acuity is achieved after a good night's sleep. Most patients return to their normal activities
within the first couple of days after the procedure without the need for spectacles.
For Patients with more than 6 sph diopters of myopia (near sighted) and for hyperopic (long sighted)patients, it may take a little longer for them to achieve sharp vision. All patients will probably feel a little more sensitive to light for about 40 hours after surgery and may need to wear sunglasses for a couple of days. If you are over 40, you may experience some trouble reading, this is generally corrected with spectacles for reading only.


Why does the price vary so much?


Like most major purchases, it is possible to pay too much for Laser Surgery. Laser Surgery should be a carefully considered decision, since this procedure will determine how well you see for the rest of your life.


What are the risks?


As with any medical procedure, the possibility of complications always exists, but problems associated with Laser Surgery tend to be relatively minor and temporary. Under correction and over correction are the most common complications and are easily treated, usually at no extra cost to the patient.


How long does Laser Surgery take?


Generally speaking, the Laser Surgery itself takes less than half an hour, However a preoperative appointment is necessary before surgery is approved.
