The Surgery

On the day of surgery having met with your surgeon at least one week prior you will typically have a repeat of your ocular scans a final vision check and a final review with your surgeon as part of your consenting ‘journey’.

The surgery procedure lasts only a number of seconds, but you will be in the operating theatre for between 10-20 minutes. After eyes drops have been instilled to numb the eye a small amount of pressure will be felt on the eye as we keep the eye in situ, an incision will be made into the cornea by one of a multitude of methods after which the corneal flap can be moved to one side to allow for the ablation of corneal tissue which in turns improves visual clarity. The corneal flap will be gently folded back into place, suction removed, and you will be asked to close your eyes to help settle the flap back into position. Shortly afterwards you will be able to open your eyes, everything will be slightly fuzzy as though you are under water, but you will be able to make your own way into the recovery room where you can sit for 10 minutes until your nurse advice you of your post operative advice and drops regimen. You will then be able to go home with your designated driver after your surgeon has done a final check to ensure your flap is settled and there is no debris or post operative concern.
