LASIK

LASIK (Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a form of corneal refractive surgery or “laser eye surgery”.

During the procedure:

Step 1 : A thin, hinged flap of corneal tissue is created on the surface of the cornea, which later acts like a natural bandage. The flap is lifted and the stroma beneath it is revealed.

Step 2 : The excimer laser then precisely reshapes the stromal layer of the cornea to correct your vision. Here we also incorporate any customisation of your treatment plan such as Wavefront or Topography guided profiles.

Step 3 : The flap is then re-positioned back into place and acts as a protective healing barrier. The flap begins to heal in a matter of hours with minimal discomfort.

Step 4 : A clear bandage contact lens is placed on the cornea to protect the eye whilst it recovers.

LASIK is the most commonly performed type of laser eye surgery anywhere in the world. As with all of our laser eye surgery procedures, anaesthetic eye drops ensure that there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. Our experienced team of surgeons will guide you at every step of the way to ensure your safety and the effectiveness of the treatment. The treatment is very quick and takes just a few minutes for each eye.

After the procedure:

Before you go home, you and whoever has accompanied you will be shown how to care for your eyes and safely apply your eye drops. We will monitor your progress at your follow up appointments and guide you on your individual aftercare.

Most patients are surprised as to how quickly their vision improves and can return back to their normal schedule within a few days. No two eyes are the same and individual healing can vary from person to person. Our clinical team will give you specific guidance at the time of your consultation, when you are preparing for surgery, and at your aftercare appointments.

Advantages of LASIK:
  • LASIK has highly accurate optical outcomes.
  • Minimal discomfort during and after LASIK.
  • Visual recovery following LASIK is usually very quick.
  • It can be used to treat a wide range of prescriptions (dependent on other clinical factors).
Disadvantages of LASIK:
  • On very rare occasions, flap complications can occur during or after surgery.
  • Even with today’s sub 100 micron flap technology, LASIK does require more corneal tissue than some surface treatments, which means that it may not be the best clinical option for every patient.
  • In some cases, to minimise the above risks, you may be more suitable for a different treatment modality. This could be owing to clinical reasons for example, if you have a thin cornea, or lifestyle factors such as if you are in the police force, armed forces or play contact sports such as martial arts and rugby. Your surgeon will give you guidance on the most appropriate type of laser procedure for your individual needs and eye profile.
