Still have questions?

Below you’ll find answers to our most frequently-asked questions.

  • Can I have laser eye surgery if I have astigmatism?

    The short answer is: Yes

    Laser eye surgery is ideal for patients with astigmatism. While treating this condition can be slightly more complicated, our technology allows us to treat astigmatic corneas very effectively and our advanced lasers can treat up to six dioptres of astigmatism. Our ophthalmic surgeons routinely deal with astigmatism symptoms, including more complex cases.

  • Can I have laser eye surgery if I am long sighted?

    The short answer is: Yes

    Laser eye surgery is a good solution for people with long sightedness. Great outcomes are achieved by our long sighted patients, who go on to enjoy a much easier day-to-day life without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

  • Can I have laser eye surgery if I’m short sighted?

    The short answer is: Yes

    Laser eye surgery will also treat short sightedness effectively. This is the most common type of surgery and is suitable for patients with both mild and severe conditions.

  • Who can’t have laser eye surgery?

    The short answer is: A small percentage of patients

    The majority of patients we see are suitable for laser eye surgery, but due to our strict guidelines, for some people it isn’t an option. If it isn’t appropriate for you, we can offer a range of alternative vision correction solutions. Book a consultation with us today, and we’ll guide you through your options.
