Get your sight back with Lasik eye surgery, a pain-free out-patient procedure
LASIK is suitable for people with short-sight, long-sight and astigmatism and is a brief pain-free out-patient procedure and in most cases both eyes can be treated on the same day.
It involves creating a thin hinged flap on the cornea with a surgical instrument called a microkeratome or alternatively with a Femtosecond laser.
The flap is then carefully folded back, and the laser removes a pre-calculated microscopic amount of tissue from the deeper layers of the cornea.
Once treatment is complete, the flap is then gently placed back into its original position and heals naturally without requiring stitches.
The actual procedure only takes a few minutes for each eye and vision recovery is often very rapid.
Unlike standard LASIK, which can only correct simple imperfections in your vision such as short-sight, long-sight and astigmatism, CustomVue™ can measure and correct the unique and more complex imperfections of each individuals’ vision with the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses - your personal best vision.
To ensure our patients are offered the most advanced and accurate laser eye surgery, we continually invest in upgrading our technology.
We are therefore proud to have been one of the first providers in the UK to treat patients on a revolutionary new VISX excimer laser system which brings with it new features - an Active Trak system and Variable Spot Scanning - which means our operating procedures are even safer and more accurate than ever before.
You want to know for certain that you’re getting the safest, most trusted treatment available.
Traditionally, surgeons have used an instrument called a microkeratome for the creation of corneal flaps.
The microkeratome is a hand-held blade that moves across the eye, creating the corneal flap as it goes.
While LASIK is extremely safe, if complications do occur the microkeratome is most often the cause.
The Femtosecond Method, by contrast, enables your surgeon to create your corneal flap without a blade ever touching your eye.
To find out if you are suitable for Lasik laser eye surgery, you will need to see one of our Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons, who will thoroughly examine your eyes and will take the time to explain the procedure and the risks and benefits.
Your surgeon will explain what you should expect before, during and after treatment and will answer any questions you may have.
Not everyone is suitable, and if this is the case your surgeon will provide reliable, expert advice and may suggest alternative treatment.
