What you need to know about
laser eye surgery

Over 30 million people have had laser eye surgery and achieved independence from glasses and contact lenses since 1990.4Laser Eye Surgery Hub. 2020. Laser Eye Surgery Risks And Success Rates. UK. https://www.lasereyesurgeryhub.co.uk/laser-eye-surgery/safety/ An average of 95.4% of patients were satisfied with their outcome after LASIK surgery. After decades of “clinical studies and technological innovation, LASIK surgery should be considered among the most successful elective procedures. LASIK surgery compares more favourably with other elective surgical procedures in terms of generally higher satisfaction rates.5Solomon KD, Fernández de Castro LE, Sandoval HP, Biber JM, Groat B, Neff KD, Ying MS, French JW, Donnenfeld ED, Lindstrom RL; Joint LASIK Study Task Force. LASIK world literature review: quality of life and patient satisfaction. Ophthalmology. 2009 Apr;116(4):691-701. doi: 10.1016/j.ophtha.2008.12.037. Review.

PRK is LASIK’s predecessor. It’s still used today for patients that do not qualify for LASIK surgery. We offer TransPRK, which is a no-touch, all-laser and gentler version of PRK that offers the same results as LASIK.

PRK is a proven treatment to safely and effectively treat:

  • Short-sightedness
  • Long-sightedness
  • Astigmatism7Spadea L, Giovannetti F. Main Complications of Photorefractive Keratectomy and their Management. Clin Ophthalmol. 2019;13:2305-2315. Published 2019 Nov 27. doi:10.2147/OPTH.S233125

Learn more about TransPRK.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

You probably have a lot of questions about your laser eye surgery options, like ‘Why choose laser eye surgery for astigmatism?’ and ‘Can I drink after laser eye surgery?’
