What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser Eye Surgery is a procedure that requires the use of a laser to reshape the eye surface (cornea), correct hypermetropia (long-sightedness), myopia (short-sightedness) and astigmatism (uneven curvature of the surface of the eye).

It is mostly used to correct poor vision; setting you free from glasses and contact lenses. Subtle adjustments to the cornea are made by a cool beam advanced laser to correct all its microscopic imperfections. This is aimed at improving the clarity and sharpness of your vision. Most of our patients who have laser vision correction surgery express how amazed they are at how fast they recover after the surgery.

Benefits of Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery offers several benefits over glasses and contact lenses. Some of these benefits are:

  • Long lasting solution- Contact lenses and glasses have to be replaced frequently but laser eye surgery provides a long-term solution for eye your prescription.
  • Increased freedom- It will increase your freedom and you will not have to take your contact lenses or glasses, every time you go out. You can also go swimming and be able to see properly without the need for prescription goggles.
  • Less risk of infection- Constantly wearing contact lenses puts your eyes at a higher risk of infections or ulcers which can result in permanent damage to your eyes and vision, this risk is extremely low with laser eye surgery and completely eliminated after a full recovery.
  • A boost to confidence levels- It can give a real boost to your confidence because you will no longer have to worry about how you look in glasses in photos or social gatherings.
  • Contact lenses cost more- Imagine how much money you need to spend over the course of your lifetime purchasing glasses or contact lenses while laser treatment is a one off cost which will correct your prescription indefinitely.
  • Think green- Have you considered what millions of used contact lenses do to our environment?
  • No more weight on your nose or ears- This type of eye surgery will get rid of heavy and unpleasant glasses on your nose and face with undesirable imprints.
  • No more foggy glasses while wearing a mask- Imagine having no fogged up glasses when you wear your mask in public places or in your job.

How does Laser Eye Surgery Work?

This advanced procedure takes only a few seconds as the laser makes a minimal adjustment to the surface of your eye (the cornea) to allow the proper focus of light as it passes through your eyes.

The procedure is quick, easy and is considered safe and effective. Our professional team will take you through extensive screening and tests to evaluate your suitability.

Laser vision correction will not change your eyes appearance or the colour of your eyes.

Types of Laser Eye Surgery We Offer

We offer the most popular types of laser eye surgery and these are – LASIK and LASEK. All our patients receive modern, state of the art technology for best visual outcome.

This enables you to have customised treatment tailored specifically for your eyes and your visual requirement.


LASIK is the most popular refractive surgery currently used for vision correction in patients with short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.

LASIK procedure takes only a few minutes and has a fast recovery time too. The majority of our patients reach better levels of vision within 48 hours.

The modern LASIK surgery we use at Optimal Vision utilises the only laser for its procedure - no blade is used. The first laser called femtosecond creates a very thin flap and the second laser called excimer corrects your prescription, this method allows fast recovery and predictable outcomes also, allowing doctors to correct higher prescriptions.


The LASEK eye surgery  is also known as PRK and was the first type of laser eye correction surgery used. With excellent clinical data and outcomes. It can be used for thinner or more irregular corneas, for example, those with the previous scarring, for patients who are not suitable for LASIK or individuals with regular contact sport exposure.

It uses the same excimer laser and wavefront technology as LASIK but has no Femto laser flap creation, meaning it is done more superficially, therefore, outcomes are as good or similar for patients in this category but that has a slightly slower recovery time, a matter of a few days more than LASIK treatment.

Our professional team and doctors at Optimal Vision will take you through extensive screenings, tests and an examination to  offer you the best treatment options.

Step by Step – Laser Eye Surgery Procedure at Our Clinic

We use technologically-advanced lasers to improve the passage of light through your eyes which results in changing your vision and giving you immense joy of sharper and clearer eyesight.

Step 1

The treatment starts with anaesthetic eye drops applied that numb your eye quickly.

Step 2 Laser Eye Surgery

The laser works within a few seconds by sending pulses of laser beams onto the surface of your eyes to reshape the cornea surface in a very small scale.

Step 3 Laser Eye Surgery

Most patients find improved sight within a few days, though complete recovery may take almost one week. It actually depends on various factors including speed at which you heal in a natural way.

Aftercare and Recovery

Your laser eye surgery aftercare is an essential part of your treatment procedure that should be taken to improve your recovery process. After your laser eye surgery, your eyes become sensitive, hence protecting it is also essential to ensure that the various risks and complications are avoided or reduced to the barest minimum.

Our complete aftercare begins from the day of your surgery and can be customised to meet the requirements of individuals. We monitor your progress regularly to make sure your sight is improving, and your outcome is satisfactory.

At Optimal Vision, we offer a well-rounded aftercare program to our patients to ensure a quick recovery. We believe that taking appropriate care of our patients after their surgery is just as important as the surgical procedure itself.

We provide a comprehensive aftercare program that checks and monitors your eye health. With this, you can be almost sure that we will provide you with all the support needed on your way to a clearer and brighter vision.

Generally, every patient is unique with exceptional experience; however, we will give you an informative overview of the general things you should expect during your aftercare process.

Aftercare after your surgical procedure

After your surgery, you are expected to stay in the eye clinic until you are completely fit to make it back to your home. It will be uncomfortable and risky to drive after your treatment. Hence, ensure you have organised transport, a close friend or relative that can assist you back home.

Aftercare during the first few days of your treatment

  • To avoid any form of complications, avoid having a shower immediately after your treatment.
  • It is also recommended that you restrain from work and other rigorous activities for 1-2 days after your treatment, to give your eyes an optimum chance to heal properly.
  • Avoid going to work as well during this period, since the eyes will be continually strained.
  • You will be expected to attend a follow-up examination at the eye clinic. This process will give your doctor or surgeon an overview of your eye health, as well as to determine if it is safe for you to drive or use your gadgets. Ideally, most patients should be able to drive within the first week following their surgical procedure. Ensure you adhere to your ophthalmologist's instructions during this period, to avoid any complications.

Aftercare during the first week

During this period, it is expected that you reduce the chances of exposing the eyes to irritation. Wearing eye make-up or any other products around your eyes should be avoided. More so, it is also important to stay away from smoke, dust or any other substance that can irritate the eye. Rubbing your eyes during this period can result in severe discomfort and an increased risk of complications.

Aftercare after the first month

After the first month of your surgery, your eyes will be close to complete recovery, and you can enjoy sporting activities like football, tennis and cricket. You are also advised to visit your eye doctor on a routine basis, depending on your schedule with the doctor.

However, don’t hesitate to reach out to your optometrist if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe pain in the eye
  • Sudden reduced vision
  • Redness of the eyes
  • Eye discharge

At Optimal Vision, we believe that every individual is unique, and understanding just how best to take care of our patient eyes after their laser eye surgery process is essential.

If you have other queries regarding your recovery, please do not hesitate to reach out to a member of our team.
