Many people contemplate having laser eye surgery but for one reason or another never actually get around to taking the plunge. That’s why at Your Vision Clinic, Glasgow’s leading laser eye surgery specialist, we’ve decided to answer as many of your most frequently asked questions that our surgeons are asked, into easy-to-digest, bite-sized chunks – to put your mind at ease.

So here goes…

What is Laser Eye Surgery?

In simplistic terms, laser eye surgery is carried out using a laser that re-shapes the cornea of the eye, which alters its focusing capability – so that vision can be improved. 

Is Laser Eye Surgery safe?

If you were to ask your friends or work colleagues – you would probably be surprised to find out how many people have actually had laser eye surgery. Laser Eye Surgery is now the most common elective surgical procedure performed with over 50 million procedures carried out to date.

On the very, very rare occasions when treatment does not go to plan and corrective surgery is required this can usually be attributed to two factors – the clinics are using out of date equipment or the surgeon is not sufficiently experienced or skilled.

Your Vision Clinic continually invests millions of pounds annually in the most up-to-date equipment on the market from world leading manufacturers including Johnson and Johnson and Carl Zeiss.

Our surgical team are also some of the most experienced in their sector, treating hundreds of patients every single week and over 2 million patients world-wide. Our surgeons are also registered with the General Medical Council and members of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.

How long does Laser Eye Surgery last?

For the vast majority of people, Laser Eye Surgery is permanent and should last for the rest of their lifetime, therefore the earlier in life you get your surgery the better.

Am I suitable for laser eye surgery?

For the vast majority of patients, over 85%, most are suitable for Laser Eye Surgery. And for the majority of people who suffer from: Myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long sightedness) or astigmatism (blurred vision) laser eye surgery would be for you.

What happens at my consultation?

Consultations are the perfect opportunity to ask and get answers to any questions or concerns you have. Following that you would have an in-depth eye examination — along the same lines as you would normally have with your optician. Based on the results of your examination, your surgeon will then recommend a treatment plan.

What does Laser Eye Surgery feel like?

There is no need to be concerned, Laser Eye Surgery is completely painless and over in just a few minutes at most, here’s a quick run-through…

Your surgeon will firstly put anaesthetic drops into your eye to make it numb, then a speculum is placed over your eye to keep it open. Depending on the type of surgery required a small incision and a flap is made to access the cornea – you may feel slight pressure when this happens, but again quite painless.

Once the cornea is exposed a laser is beamed onto the cornea to reshape it – again during this stage patients will feel absolutely no pain or discomfort whatsoever.

Following the procedure patients will be given either eyedrops or an eyepatch to prevent any infection during the healing process. 

If patients feel any dryness or tingling this easily managed by painkillers for a few days afterwards until the eye has fully healed.

What does Laser Eye Surgery cost?

At Your Vision Clinic we try to keep our costs as competitive as possible whilst never compromising on quality of care, that’s why we offer our patients as many options to pay. These include 0% interest for up to 10 months and low interest rates options, which can be repaid for up to 5 years. You can of course have the option to pay in full too.

Depending on the outcome of your assessment our costs generally start from around £1,190 for both eyes increasing to around £2,990 Lasik iDesign, again for both eyes.
