Laser Eye Surgery suitability – what you need to know

As one of the most popular eye surgeries the World over, Laser Eye Surgery can certainly seem like a very attractive option if you’ve suffered at the hands of bad sight over the years. And why not, it’s fast, affordable and absolutely life changing – so where’s the snag? Well the good news is that there isn’t one, but like every surgery, you will need to be a suitable candidate for the treatment before you undergo it.

Here Optilase, Ireland’s No.1 Eye Surgery providers take us through patient suitability, and what you need to think about before starting your Laser Eye Surgery journey.

Where to start
Wondering how you’ll know if you are suitable for the treatment? In short, it’s impossible to really know without visiting Optilase for an initial assessment. Generally speaking there are a number of factors that may make you unsuitable for the treatment like prescriptions stronger than -10 or +5, or having a squint or a lazy eye. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is necessary to wait until 6 months before starting your treatment. Like most medical questions, the best advice is always to get professional advice – and your next step should be to go to Optilase for a free consultation.

Free consultation
As Ireland’s premier private eye surgery the team at Optilase knows that not everyone is suitable for Laser Eye Surgery, and so to determine your suitability they offer a free laser eye surgery consultation.

At the free consultation one of the team’s Laser Optometrists will carry out a series of eye examinations to determine your suitability. They will then explain in detail the processes involved and answer any questions you may have and the whole assessment takes approximately one hour to complete. At the end of the consultation a pre-operative consultation is then arranged with your Surgeon.
