If any of the above applies to you, don’t be disheartened. As mentioned, every case is different, and one of our ophthalmic surgeons will be able to give you a final decision on whether laser eye surgery is right for you. For example, if you have dry eyes, the severity of your condition will determine whether you can have laser eye surgery.
For women who are breastfeeding, you will generally be allowed to have treatment three months after weaning. Most people with diabetes or glaucoma will not be suitable for treatment, due to there being a higher likelihood of complications. However, do not hesitate to get in touch for a consultation to discuss your specific case in further detail.
Our consultations are free, and there is no obligation to continue with our service if you are accepted for laser eye surgery. If we feel that you are not suitable for the procedure, we have other options that may help such as lens replacement surgery. There is some form of vision correction solution available for 99 per cent of people who have otherwise healthy eyes, so it’s very likely that there will be an option that suits your needs. The ophthalmologist you see will be able to advise you on the best steps going forward.
When you’ve relied on glasses or contact lenses for years, it can be daunting to consider getting laser eye surgery, so to help you decide if it’s right for you, we’ve put together some guidance on what laser eye surgery is and the potential risks.
