What is laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgery is a term used to describe a collection of procedures

It commonly corrects short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hypermetropia), astigmatism and reading vision problems (presbyopia).

Different techniques are used to correct each condition. These corrections are achieved through the use of a laser which reshapes the cornea (the transparent part) and adjusts the focus of the eye. Laser eye surgery in our Central London clinic is a brief procedure and is entirely painless due to the application of anaesthetic drops.

The SCHWIND AMARIS 1050RS is the world’s highest-performance eye laser system for refractive and therapeutic corneal surgery. It brings together the most advanced technology in existence. With its repetition rate of 1050 Hz and its unique 7D eye tracking, it offers unmatched speed, precision, and safety for the best laser eye surgery and vision correction. Schwind SmartSurface is the most advanced surface laser eye surgery with faster healing times than LASEK and PRK. The laser also allows topography-guided treatments for unusual corneas.

What is the process of laser eye surgery?

1
Consultation

We’ll take you through the process step by step and explain the potential complications to help you to weigh up the risks and benefits in order to make an informed decision regarding laser eye surgery.

2
Treatment plan

Our consultants will tailor a bespoke laser eye treatment plan just for you, based on your current eye sight and personal needs.

3
Preparing for surgery

Our dedicated team of consultants, nurses and patient co-ordinators will take you through our laser eye surgery pre-op process ensuring all your questions are answered and you’re totally at ease.

4
The procedure

Using a combination of the Zeimer Z8 femtosecond laser and the Schwind Amaris laser, your surgeon will correct your vision. The procedure is not painful as anaesthetic drops are used to completely numb the surface of the eye. Both eyes are treated at the same time and the whole laser eye surgery typically takes around 10-15 minutes from start to finish.

5
Recovery

If you are about to have or have just had laser eye surgery you’ll want to know how to look after your eyes immediately after surgery to get the best results from your investment. We will let you know what to do, for example avoiding rubbing your eyes, avoiding contact with water, staying away from dirt and dust and wearing sunglasses.

6
Follow up consult

After your laser eye surgery, we’ll support you and review you again on a number of visits to make sure your eyes are healing well and that you’re getting on well with your new HD vision.

Did you know?

Laser eye surgery has very minimal downtime. Your eyes will start healing as soon as the procedure is done and most people are able to resume normal activities in as little as 24 hours after surgery.
