Am I suitable?

Am I suitable for laser eye surgery?

The AccuVision team have successfully treated over 80,000 patients over several decades and we take great pride in being able to make a positive impact on lives, one patient at a time.

In our experienced hands, most people over the age of 18 who are dependent on spectacles or contact lenses are candidates for laser eye surgery. Our rigorous screening techniques, state of the art technology and several decades of clinical experience enable us to treat a vast range of eye prescriptions with excellent outcomes.

Here are a few of the factors that are considered when determining your suitability for laser eye surgery:

  • Eye prescription and its stability
  • Corneal profile and thickness
  • Any underlying eye disease
  • Any underlying health conditions
  • Age

Ultimately, suitability for laser eye surgery is also dependent on a multitude of factors beyond just your eyes. Your personality traits, lifestyle, occupation, expectations and life long commitment to preserving your quality of vision will also influence your suitability for treatment.

It is important to remember that the internet is filled with misinformation and friendly “free opinions” are commonplace with today’s internet generation but in fact detailed diagnostic evaluation and an expert opinion with careful consideration of individual risks and benefits are the only way to determine whether surgery is safe and appropriate for you.

We would be delighted to see you at one of our clinics to take the conversation further and empower you with the knowledge necessary to take the next steps towards a clearer future.

When might laser eye surgery not be suitable?

The team at AccuVision always takes a holistic approach towards every one of our patients. Some medical conditions may require special management to ensure that you achieve the best possible visual outcome. Our multidisciplinary team of Ophthalmologists and Optometrists with varied specialties is always at hand to look after all of your visual needs.

If we feel that laser eye surgery may not achieve your goals, we will guide you on your alternative options and your long term eye care thereafter.

If you have a specific health or eye condition and are not sure if you would be suitable for treatment, please contact our clinical team or inform us at the time of your consultation so that we can guide you on your options.

Refused treatment at another consultation? Get a second opinion.

If you have been told elsewhere that you are not suitable for laser eye surgery, then AccuVision may have good news for you.

We routinely see patients who have been refused surgery because of thin corneas, high prescriptions, age or some medical conditions. Remember that every team and technology platform have different capabilities, experience and areas of expertise – it is always best to speak with us to find out more.

Our experienced team has pioneered procedures and customised treatment plans, enabling us to safely and effectively help patients who have been refused treatment elsewhere due to limitations in technology and experience.

We may need to approach your care plan differently to allow for the above factors, but this doesn’t always mean you can’t experience the freedoms that laser eye surgery can offer.

Those that we progress to treatment have excellent outcomes with laser eye surgery, you need only read our patient stories for this to be apparent.
