• 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.
