How long does lens replacement take?

Lens replacement surgery is a little bit different to laser vision correction because we operate on each eye on a separate occasion. The surgery is done in a day surgery facility, so it’s not done in the laser facility, and the recovery takes a bit longer than laser vision correction.

You can expect the vision to be bright and vivid and clear the next day, but it can be a little bit fuzzy and take a little bit of time to recover.

You might find that the period between having the first eye done and the second eye done might be a little bit confusing because the two eyes have different focus, but that feeling quickly recovers immediately after you’ve had the second surgery done.

To see if you’re a good candidate to benefit from eye laser surgery, I’d encourage you to book an appointment now. You can book it online or call us on 03 8372 0183 and we’ll book you in to have a free assessment to see if you are suitable to have eye laser surgery. This is the best way to make the first step in seeing if you can benefit from eye laser surgery and free yourself from the burden of glasses and contact lenses. Book now.
