Laser eye surgery is a very straightforward procedure, which has helped millions of people around the world to enjoy better vision. Complications are rare, and here at Optegra we do everything we can to keep the risks of laser eye surgery to a minimum.
Laser eye surgery is one of the most commonly performed elective surgical procedures in the world. The complication rate is extremely rare, and in the event that complications do occur, they can be addressed by further treatment.
We provide comprehensive aftercare, so if you do experience any side effects of laser eye surgery, your surgeon will be on hand to track your progress and advise on whether you need any further treatment.
LASIK is one of the most well-known and established types of laser eye surgery. During the course of a LASIK treatment, a thin flap is created in the outer layer of the cornea.
At Optegra, we carry out LASIK surgery using a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser, rather than the traditional method of using a blade, to help ensure the best possible results.
LASEK is often offered as an alternative treatment for individuals who are unable to have LASIK surgery. During a LASEK procedure, the fine surface layer of the cornea is gently loosened and folded back, rather than a flap being created.
ReLEx SMILE is the latest type of laser eye surgery available. This treatment is minimally invasive and bladeless. No flap is created, so there’s no risk of flap complications and less risk of developing dry eyes. As the treatment is less invasive than other types of laser eye surgery, recovery is quick and discomfort is kept to a minimum. This treatment is also better for the stability of the cornea, which means better results in the long term.
