Corrective laser eye surgery

We offer a range of modern refractive options for short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism including:

  • LASER correction, including LASEK & LASIK
  • Lens exchange
  • Refractive lens exchange (to correct high errors outside the range of lasers)
  • Presbyopic lens exchange (to enable reading vision)
  • Augmented cataract surgery (taking visual improvement one step further in patients with cataracts by the use of specialised lenses and enhancement options like additive laser correction)
  • Phakic lenses (ICL, Cachet…these work like contact lenses but from inside the eye so they don’t need daily/frequent removal)

We offer thorough and free assessments where a surgeon will examine your eyes in detail, discuss all available options and give you the opportunity to ask any questions. Working with Sheffield Laser Centre we are able to offer our patients access to state-of-the-art technology.

“After a thorough consultation and many scans I had considered the range of procedures and decided on lens exchange. From the start I felt like I trusted the service and that made the whole experience very easy. Now that I have had the operation, wow, it has changed my life.”

Maureen, Patient

Surgery

Should you decide to proceed with laser surgery the process is as follows:

  1.  An additional scan is performed for iris recognition and wavefront analysis for use if suitable.
  2. All measurements are then put in a sophisticated software to calculate precisely the treatment parameters before teeing up for the laser itself.
  3.  Anaesthetic eye drops are used to numb the surface of your eye.
  4.  You are guided into the laser room where the procedure is performed. The procedure is quick, taking typically 20-30 minutes for both eyes, and people are often surprised at how comfortable the procedure is.
  5. Following a quick check and instruction about post-operative care and follow-up, you will be free to go.

Aftercare and recovery

During recovery you can expect some mild discomfort, watering and sensitivity to light. The speed of visual recovery does vary depending on the technique applied and the error corrected. Patients get rapid improvement over the next day or so.

Because initially the vision is unsettled we recommend that you have someone with you to ensure that you can get home safely after your surgery. You should plan for a relaxed day following treatment: lots of people have a sleep in the afternoon.

All patients who have had LASIK are seen the next day by their surgeon. All patients are seen on several occasions over the next few weeks and months post op to monitor progress and to ensure you are satisfied with the outcome.
