Comprehensive aftercare for every patient.
At Optical Express, we firmly believe that our patients should receive exemplary levels of care before, during and after their lens replacement surgery. With that in mind, we put together a complete aftercare plan that’s individually tailored to each patient and their specific refractive lens exchange recovery. It helps to ensure that their surgery is successful for the long term.
We'll take care of your vision long after your lens surgery.
Your surgeon will remove your natural lens and replace it with a premium synthetic lens. After lens surgery, patients generally experience some temporary discomfort as the anesthetic wears off. Some patients may benefit from using over-the-counter pain relief to manage this. Your surgeon will provide you with medication to aid the healing process. Once your surgery is complete, it's important that you return home to rest and to start your recovery. A small number of patients may require their second eye to be treated the following day.
Our clinical care team will conduct a thorough assessment to check that your eyes have started to heal well. After your appointment, you should give yourself time to relax and recover from your procedure. For the first few days, it's important to avoid activities which are strenuous for your eyes, such as driving and be careful not to rub your eyes or get them wet.
We'll take good care of your vision following your lens surgery, because we consider the care after your treatment to be just as important as the surgery itself. Our comprehensive aftercare programme helps to ensure that your surgery is successful for the long term.
As part of our aftercare programme, we provide 12 months of aftercare as standard. Within this time, you should return for regular aftercare appointments as recommended by your optometrist. During their refractive lens exchange recovery, our patients also have access to a 24 hour helpline in the first 12 months following surgery, for complete peace of mind.
One year on
Just like a visit to the dentist, eye examinations should be a part of your regular health checks. Visit us once a year to help maintain your eye health.
