Typically, your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon will not perform the lens replacement procedure on both eyes at the same time. Each eye will require a separate procedure, although they can both generally be done within a few weeks of each other.
Local anaesthetic drops are given to you before the procedure to alleviate any pain or discomfort. Depending on your procedure, any pain experienced after laser eye surgery will be short lived.
Your sight should return a few hours after the operation although it may be blurry for the first couple of days. Vision normally improves quickly over the next week or two, reaching its optimum at 4-6 weeks.
Providing you do not work in a dusty or smoky environment (which we recommend avoiding for around two weeks after lens replacement surgery), you should be able to go back to work after three days, or whenever your eye feels comfortable again.
The lens used in the procedure can focus at different distances, which could give you clearer close up vision but not all patients will be able to stop wearing glasses or contact lenses for all tasks.
The lens replacement surgery procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and is painless. Afterwards, you may experience itching and mild discomfort; this is normal and should disappear in just one or two days.
