One of the first steps in preparing yourself for Laser Eye Surgery is to be 100% comfortable and informed about the procedure that will be taking place and to always ask any questions you may have in the lead up to the day of surgery.
During your free consultation at any one of our Optilase clinics in Belfast, Newry and Derry/Londonderry you will have the opportunity to go through the Laser Eye Surgery procedure step-by-step.
There are certain factors to consider when contacting Optilase about Laser Eye Surgery, most importantly your suitability for the procedure.
At the consultation stage, it will be determined whether your particular refractive error and general health make you eligible for treatment.
Laser Eye Surgery at Optilase Northern Ireland involves using laser energy to sculpt the surface of the cornea in order to eliminate the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
No other part of the body is affected by the procedure, and because the cornea heals extremely rapidly, patients who undergo Laser Eye Surgery can return to their normal routine usually within 24 hours.
Eyesight is immediately improved after Laser Eye Surgery has taken place, but vision may appear blurry and eyes can feel extra irritable for a time afterwards.
Antibacterial eye drops and protective goggles are prescribed after Laser Eye Surgery has taken place in order to keep eyes moist, prevent outside elements such as dust or sweat entering the post-surgery eye, and minimize the risk of an infection developing.
