Am I suitable for LASIK or Laser Eye Surgery?

Several factors are used to assess your suitability for treatment, these include your age (usually over 20), your vision (preferably unchanged for the previous 12 months), the health of your eyes (free of any eye disease) and your general health. It is also preferable that you are not pregnant.

If you are not suitable for LASIK, there are now many other excellent options available please discuss with our doctors.

How long does it take?

For both eyes, the whole procedure takes about 10 minutes per eye, but you will be at the centre for a few hours to ensure all pre and post-operative checks have been completed.

Will I need to take time off work?

In most cases, you can go back to work the day after your procedure. Most patients regain 90% of their vision within 24 hours however you can expect to notice improvements and minor fluctuations over the next few weeks.

How soon can I drive after having LASIK eye surgery?

For most people, you can resume driving the next day. We would recommend you do not drive for a day or two after surgery.

Suitability for LASIK

Each pair of eyes is unique and LASIK isn’t suitable for everyone. Typically we say no to 1 in 5 patients because our patients safety is our number 1 priority. Several factors are used to assess your suitability for treatment, these include:

  • your age (usually over 20 to 40/45)
  • your lifestyle needs, e.g. work, sport or hobbies
  • stable vision for up to 12 months
  • vision correction and astigmatism inside acceptable ranges
  • healthy eyes (free of any eye disease)
  • good general health (it is also preferable that you are not pregnant)

Your eyes will need to be examined thoroughly to determine your suitability and to enable an accurate assessment of the correct procedure for your eyes.
