Almost 24 million people worldwide have had laser eye surgery. It is the most common elective surgery in the world. It is important to understand that any form of surgery has a degree of risk. It is our aim to fully inform you of the risks and benefits of eye surgery. During your consultation you will be shown a video that explains the benefits, risks and potential side effects of eye surgery. This informed consent video will help you to make a well-informed decision on whether eye surgery is right for you. Less than 1% of patients will develop a complication and the majority of these are easily overcome through a personal aftercare plan. Most people are back at work within a few days. The majority of our patients are extremely happy with their results and wish they had done it sooner.
