Most Asked Questions

Here are 10 of the most common questions we get asked by our customers seeking laser eye surgery at the clinic. Don’t worry if you don’t see your questions, we can answer those on the day of arrival. 

Question 1

"I'm excited to explore the possibilities of laser eye surgery! Can you tell me about the different types of procedures available and which one might be best for me?"

Answer

Different types of procedures available include LASIK, PRK, and SMILE. The best procedure for you depends on factors such as your eye health, prescription, and corneal thickness. During your consultation, we will assess your individual needs and recommend the most suitable option.

Question 2

"I've heard about the benefits of laser eye surgery, but I'm curious about the potential risks involved. Could you explain the safety measures and possible complications associated with the procedure?"

Answer

Laser eye surgery is considered safe for the majority of patients. However, like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, albeit rare. These may include dry eyes, glare, halos, and over- or under-correction. Our surgeons utilise advanced technology and techniques to minimise risks and ensure optimal outcomes for our patients.

Question 3

"How long does the recovery process typically take after laser eye surgery, and what can I expect in terms of discomfort or downtime?"

Answer

The recovery process varies for each individual but typically takes a few days to a week. You may experience some discomfort, dryness, and light sensitivity initially, but these symptoms usually improve within a few days. Most patients can resume normal activities, including work, within a few days after surgery.

Question 4

"As someone with astigmatism, I'm wondering if laser eye surgery is still an option for me. Can you explain how the procedure can address my specific vision needs?"

Answer

Laser eye surgery can effectively treat astigmatism by reshaping the cornea to correct irregularities in its curvature. Our surgeons have extensive experience in treating astigmatism and will tailor the procedure to address your specific needs and provide you with clear, crisp vision.

Question 5

"What are the qualifications and experience of the surgeons who perform laser eye surgery at your clinic? I want to ensure I'm in capable hands."

Answer

Our surgeons are highly qualified and experienced in performing laser eye surgery. They are board-certified ophthalmologists who have undergone specialised training in refractive surgery and use state-of-the-art technology to deliver safe and effective treatments.

Question 6

"I wear contact lenses regularly. Do I need to stop wearing them before the consultation or the surgery, and if so, for how long?"

Answer

Yes, it's recommended to stop wearing contact lenses before the consultation and surgery. Soft contact lenses should be discontinued for at least a few days, while rigid gas-permeable lenses may require a longer cessation period to allow the cornea to return to its natural shape.

Question 7

"Are there any lifestyle changes or precautions I should take before or after undergoing laser eye surgery to optimize my results and ensure a smooth recovery?"

Answer

Before surgery, we'll provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare and what to expect during the recovery period. This may include avoiding rubbing your eyes, using prescribed eye drops, and wearing protective eyewear. After surgery, it's important to attend follow-up appointments and adhere to post-operative care instructions to ensure optimal healing and outcomes.

Question 8

"What is the success rate of laser eye surgery, and what factors can influence individual outcomes?"

Answer

The success rate of laser eye surgery is high, with the majority of patients achieving significantly improved vision. Factors such as the severity of your prescription, the health of your eyes, and your surgeon's skill and experience can influence individual outcomes. During your consultation, we'll provide you with personalised information based on your specific circumstances.

Question 9

"I'm concerned about the cost of laser eye surgery. Can you provide information about financing options or insurance coverage that may be available?"

Answer

The cost of laser eye surgery can vary depending on factors such as the type of procedure, the technology used, and any additional services included. We offer financing options and payment plans to make the procedure more affordable for our patients. Additionally, some insurance plans may provide coverage for laser eye surgery, so it's worth checking with your provider.

Question 10

"After undergoing laser eye surgery, will I still need to wear glasses or contact lenses for certain activities, such as reading or driving at night?"

Answer

Many patients experience reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses after laser eye surgery, but some may still require them for certain activities or tasks. Factors such as age-related changes in vision or residual refractive error may affect your visual acuity. During your consultation, we'll discuss your expectations and provide you with realistic insights into your post-operative vision.

We hope these questions and answers give you an insight into the expectations of a free consultation with My-iClinic.
