What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser Eye Surgery is a state-of-the-art procedure using a laser to reshape the cornea, effectively correcting hypermetropia (long-sightedness), myopia (short-sightedness), and astigmatism (irregular curvature of the eye’s surface). This surgery aims to enhance vision clarity and sharpness, potentially freeing you from the need for glasses or contact lenses. Most patients are pleasantly surprised by the rapid recovery following the surgery.
Benefits of Laser Eye Surgery

Advantages of Laser eye surgery

  • Long-Lasting: Unlike glasses or contact lenses that require frequent replacements, laser eye surgery offers a permanent correction for your vision prescription.
  • Increased Freedom: Enjoy the freedom of not needing glasses or contact lenses daily. Swim and engage in other activities without the hassle of prescription eyewear.
  • Reduced Risk of Infection: Contact lenses can increase the risk of eye infections and ulcers. Laser eye surgery minimises this risk and eliminates it entirely after recovery.
  • Boost in Confidence: Improve your confidence by no longer worrying about how you look in glasses in photos or social settings.
  • Cost-Effective: Over a lifetime, the cost of glasses and contact lenses can add up. Laser eye surgery is a one-time investment that corrects your vision permanently.
  • Environmental Impact: Reduce environmental waste from discarded contact lenses by opting for laser eye surgery.
  • Comfort: Say goodbye to the discomfort of heavy glasses and the imprints they leave on your nose and ears.
  • ⁠Clear Vision with Masks: Avoid the inconvenience of fogged-up glasses while wearing masks.

How Does Laser Eye Surgery Work?

Laser Eye Surgery FAQ's

Could I be suitable for Laser treatment?

Lasik treats prescriptions up to -9D, +4D with an astigmatism of up to -5D. Lasek is able to treat prescriptions up to -9D, +3D with an astigmatism of up to -5D.

Suitability is determined at the consultation by the surgeon after comprehensive testing. Patients should be over the age of 18yrs and have had a stable prescription for a year. Absolute contraindication for laser treatment: pregnancy, breastfeeding, autoimmune disorders, keratoconus.

Is there an upper age limit for Laser?

There is no upper age limit for Laser Eye Surgery as long as it is the ideal treatment for the patient’s needs and expectations, and there are no signs of cataracts. Most laser patients tend to be between the ages of 18 and 50.

What is the minimum age limit for laser?

For Laser Eye Surgery, you must be over the age of 18 with two stable prescriptions and there is no upper age limit.

For Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL), you must be between the ages of 21 and 40 and have two stable prescriptions.

For Cataract Surgery and Clear Lens Exchange treatments you must at least be 45 years old, have presbyopia and a stable reading prescription.

Patients looking for management of Keratoconus must be over the age of 16 and have had disease diagnosed as progressive.

Why does Precision Vision Care only offer Wavefront treatments?

Wavefront laser eye treatment corrects the aberrations (imperfections) in the eyes which cause a prescription. Precision Vision deliver a gold standard in Laser treatment with our personalised treatment plans and sole use of Wavefront technology. Our state of the art laser eye surgery provides better quality vision and reduces nighttime glare that can be experienced with basic Laser treatments.

Can you guarantee 20/20 vision?

As with any surgery, there are no 100% guarantees. There are many variables, the main being corneal healing and general health. If you have 20/20 vision with glasses or contact lenses, it is highly possible this will be achieved after treatment; this will be discussed at the consultation.

98% of our patients’ achieve 20/20 vision and approximately 30 to 40% of our patients’ achieve better than 20/20 vision.

Is Laser eye surgery safe?

LASIK is the most common laser surgery performed worldwide, it has undergone numerous clinical trials and is FDA approved.

As with any surgery procedure, laser eye surgery is not completely risk-free. Complications are very rare and these will be explained and discussed at your consultation. Any complications that may arise can easily be dealt with by our comprehensive aftercare system, which is included in the cost of your treatment.

How long does Laser treatment take?

It will take about 15-20 minutes to treat both eyes but you will be in the clinic for 1 to 2 hours to prepare, perform the treatment, recover and be discharged.

What if my eye moves during surgery?

Brand new: Precision Vision's Advanced Control Eye-tracking (ACE) System is the most sophisticated 6 dimensional (XYZ, intraoperative rotations and static rotations using Iris Recognition) eye tracker. It takes pictures of the eye (sampling rate) 1,750 times per second (1750Hz) and has a response time of 2ms, so no laser pulses are ever misplaced. The Eyetracker can follow the most sudden or subtle of eye movements.

Does Laser treatment hurt?

Before the procedure, the surgeon will apply anaesthetic drops to numb your eye so no pain is felt. However, the eye lid guard that prevents blinking throughout the procedure can cause some discomfort. Some patients also report a sensation of pressure for a few seconds whilst the flap is created.

When is the protective lens removed?

The protective contact lens is placed in the eyes as a precautionary measure and if it falls out there is no need to replace it or to worry about it. The lens is removed at the first post-operative check which for LASIK is one or two days after treatment and for LASEK is 4 to 5 days. We recommend not touching the lenses, even if you are an experienced lens wearer.

How long does it take to recover from Lasik?

Your vision will be a little blurry after LASIK surgery and this wears off a few hours after treatment. Recovery times after laser eye surgery vary as everyone’s eyes heal independently at different rates. Initial recovery after LASIK treatment is usually 24 to 48 hours and for LASEK is 3 to 4 days. It is recommended that all aftercare instructions are followed to aid recovery.

How much time off work will I require?

Following LASIK majority of patients are back to work within 48 hours, and within a week for LASEK patients. However, this can vary depending on your occupation; working in a dusty environment may mean that more time off is needed. The amount of time off work needed will be suggested at your consultation.

When will I be able to drive?

At your first post-operative check, your surgeon will examine your eye to determine how your vision is recovering and advise when to start driving. It is typically between 1 to 2 days after treatment LASIK and a week after LASEK

How long will the treatment last?

The treatment will last indefinitely, however, does not prevent natural deterioration or changes due to health issues or environmental factors. If there is deterioration in vision, retreatment may be required to fine tune it. Laser treatment will not prevent the natural ageing of the eyes – presbyopia – which is the need for reading glasses from the age of 40-45yrs.

What is Monovision?

For presbyopic patients (over 40yrs of age with reading glasses), this is where one eye (dominant eye) is corrected for distance vision and the other is corrected for near vision. To be able to have this type of treatment you must undergo a contact lens trial to ensure you are able to adapt to the discrepancy between the two eyes. Not everyone can tolerate this; hence a contact lens trial is imperative to simulate the potential outcome.

What is Implantable Contact Lens treatment?

This procedure is ideal for patients who are unsuitable for (e.g. dry eyes, high prescription, thin corneas, etc) as it does not involve modification of the cornea and can treat high prescriptions.

ICL is the only vision correction treatment that is reversible. It has a proven safety record, is FDA approved and has undergone extensive clinical trials. The procedure involves implanting an artificial lens behind the coloured part of the eye (the anterior chamber) thereby meaning it cannot be seen.

Can you have treatment if pregnant or breast feeding?

Laser treatment cannot be carried out if you are pregnant. To be able to undertake any form of vision correction surgery you must wait at least 3 months after finishing breastfeeding.

Can you have treatment if epileptic?

It is a requirement that the epilepsy is under control with anti-epileptic medication. Epileptics can have vision correction treatment given that strong lighting is not used throughout any of the treatments.

Can you have treatment if you have diabetes or glaucoma?

As long as the conditions are under control, vision correction is possible.

Can you have treatment if you have blepharitis?

Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids caused by clogging or irritation of the oil glands found in the follicles of the eyelashes. Clogging of the oil glands can also lead to infections. There are two types – occurring on the outside of the eye (anterior) and in the corner of the eye (posterior).

To determine if someone who has blepharitis can have treatment is dependent on whether or not there is an infection. If so the infection must clear before attending a consultation or treatment. There are also other symptoms caused by blepharitis that can affect suitability for treatment, these will be assessed at your consultation.

Can you have treatment if you have amblyopia (lazy eye)?

Suitability will be determined at your consultation as it depends on the degree of amblyopia; the lazy eye must have a minimum amount of visual function. Vision correction treatment will not correct amblyopia; instead, the prescription is corrected, achieving the same vision as obtained with glasses and contact lenses.

Can you have treatment if you have strabismus?

This depends on the direction and angle of deviation. Strabismus surgery is needed if you want to correct the misalignment which will involve surgery on the muscles around the affected eye. Treatment to correct the prescription can be performed before or after strabismus surgery. For patients requiring prisms in glasses, this will remain the same after vision correction surgery.

Can you have treatment if you have macular degeneration?

This is age related and can affect one or both eyes where damage to the macula (central part of the retina) results in loss of central vision. It causes blurred vision and can lead to a complete loss of central vision (partial blindness). Vision correction treatment is not recommended and instead, you should see a specialist to determine the best form of treatment.

Can you have treatment if you have floaters?

Floaters are small dots that can be seen in your field of vision. They are small pieces of debris that float in the vitreous humour. This debris casts a shadow on the retina but can often go unnoticed as your brain adapts and learns to ignore floaters or they quickly move out of the field of vision. Floaters are part of the natural ageing process and cannot be prevented. However, if they significantly affect your vision they can be removed at a specialist clinic. Vision correction treatment will correct your prescription but it will not remove or prevent floaters.
