When can I have eye laser surgery?

During your consultation with us at Eye Laser Specialists, we’ll take a complete medical and ophthalmic history. You’ll receive a thorough ophthalmic examination to determine that your eyes are healthy and that there is no underlying disease process. In addition, we’ll perform a range of investigations.

All of this information will help us to determine the appropriateness of laser vision correction in your situation.

At Eye Laser Specialists, we can correct shortsightedness, longsightedness and presbyopia, which is the loss of reading vision with ageing. Consequently, we’re able to offer laser vision correction to a wide age range. However, it is important to realise that laser vision correction is not appropriate unless you are aged 18 years or older.

Once we have determined the appropriateness of laser vision correction in your situation, we’ll be able to have a detailed discussion of the risks and of each of the laser vision correction procedures that we offer at Eye Laser Specialists. You’ll then be able to make an informed decision about which is the most appropriate intervention in your situation.

If you’re considering having laser refractive surgery, I’d encourage you to book a free appointment, either by dialling the our number or online.

Your free assessment is the first step in determining your suitability for laser refractive surgery and is incredibly important that this is done thoroughly and accurately to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for surgery and that we will achieve the best results.

It’s a great journey and the results will be truly amazing. But first, we need to find out your suitability. I encourage you to book a free assessment.
