How do I know if LASIK treatment is right for me?

Before any laser eye surgery treatment at Laser Vision Portsmouth, we will always invite you to an initial consultation where the condition of your eyesight and your eye health can be assessed.

We’ll then recommend any treatments that can achieve your vision correction goals. LASIK treatment tends to be one of the most popular forms of laser eye surgery in patients where the cornea is not bending light as it should due to the misshaping of the eye’s surface.

For patients who are not good candidates for LASIK, we may recommend a refractive lens exchange which can be used to treat myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism and achieve clear vision.


What happens during my procedure for LASIK in Portsmouth?

LASIK laser eye surgery will be performed to reshape the corneal tissue so that once light hits the eye’s surface, it can be directed precisely onto the retina as it should, which in turn leads to clearer vision.

The procedure itself takes just seconds per eye, so you can expect to be in and out of surgery within around 30 minutes.


What is the difference between LASIK and LASEK?

It’s easy to get confused between LASIK and LASEK, but there are some key differences regarding what each type of laser eye surgery involves.

LASEK involves removing the extremely thin epithelial layer of the cornea. This is done by using an alcohol solution or a special instrument. The underlying cornea is then reshaped using an excimer laser.

LASIK however, involves creating a corneal flap using a microkeratome or femtosecond laser. An excimer laser is then used for reshaping the cornea.


Does LASIK laser eye surgery hurt?

Numbing eye drops ensure that your laser eye surgery treatment is painless. There is a very short amount of downtime following treatment and you may experience some mild discomfort which can be eased by taking pain relief medication like paracetamol.
