4 Top tips when considering laser eye surgery
Eye Surgery Laser eye surgery can transform lives, yet from consultation to aftercare it's important to find the right option and care provider for you. Try these top tips as a starter.
- Laser eye surgery is suitable for almost anyone over the age of 21 with a stable, distance prescription (subject to health conditions). For those eligible, it could be more convenient than glasses or lenses; giving the potential freedom to enjoy the experiences and sights of life more spontaneously.
- Before considering laser eye surgery, research various providers and seek out those who are trans- parent about the risks/advantages of the treatment. Check that your laser eye surgeon has adequate qualiﬁcations, such as certiﬁcation from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
- Once you have chosen a provider, make sure you have an in-depth consultation. This should be a two-way conversation outlining exactly what the treatment involves and the results you can expect from laser eye surgery.
- After your treatment you should receive a detailed aftercare programme. Follow this to make your recovery process as smooth as possible.
