Laser eye surgery in Liverpool: things to know before you go

Laser eye surgery is one of the most groundbreaking eye treatments – but also one of the most misunderstood. If you’re thinking of booking a consultation, read on to find out more.

How does laser eye surgery work?

The most appropriate form of eyecare depends on several factors – including your age, budget and eyesight. You can find out more information on the NHS, but ultimately, a qualified ophthalmologist will help you decide when book in for a laser eye surgery consultation in Liverpool.

Here’s more about what to expect before, during and after your treatment.

Before laser eye surgery:

Eye tests don’t exactly fill us with joy. But don’t worry, the surgeon will put anaesthetic drops into your eye first. Most people just feel a slight pressure on their eye during, and a little discomfort after (because your peepers have been open for a while).

During laser eye surgery:

There are three different types of laser eye surgery offered at clinics across Merseyside:

  • LASIK involves two lasers which open and reshape your cornea
  • PRK (also known as LASEK) is when a surgeon removes the clear skin covering your cornea and then uses a laser to reshape it
  • SMILE doesn’t involve lasers – the shaping is carried out by a surgeon

After laser eye surgery:

If you feel stinging or dryness in the following days, this can usually be managed with eyedrops and painkillers, although you might not need anything at all.

Could laser eye surgery fix my vision?

Laser eye surgery can correct eyesight problems including astigmatism, short-sightedness and long-sightedness. According to the NHS, 95% of patients are happy with the results.

Of course, every eye is different so there is a chance that the treatment won’t improve your vision. The risks of this are relatively slim – so it’s just a case of weighing it up and making the decision that feels right for you.

If budget is a factor, vouchers and deals can help with the cost. If you have glaucoma or cataracts, speak to a specialist. They might recommend alternative treatments instead of laser eye surgery.

How long will it take me to recover from laser eye surgery?

It can take up to six months for your eyes to completely heal after laser eye surgery. However, any discomfort should fade away after the first few weeks. You might be given eye drops or even an eye patch to help reduce the risk of infection and inflammation.

Your surgeon should arrange a check-up within a day or two, so they can check everything is looking ship shape. Check out this guide from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists to find out more about what will happen after your surgery.
