What is LASIK?

LASIK is the most commonly performed Laser Vision Correction procedure to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses; it can correct short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism (blurred vision due to the shape of the cornea not being regular). A femtosecond laser is used to create a thin layer on the corneal surface, called the flap, which is lifted by the surgeon. An excimer laser is then used to sculpt the cornea, correcting the underlying refractive error. Finally, the flap is re-positioned and smoothed in place with no need for stitches.

How LASIK Works

Our-Clinics

The Procedure

The entire procedure is painless, although a feeling of pressure on the eyes may be noticed at times; it typically lasts 5-10 minutes for each eye and around 30 minutes for the whole procedure.

Anaesthetic eye drops are used before the procedure to numb the eyes. After laying down, you will have a ‘lid speculum’ fitted to keep your eye open and to stop you blinking. A vacuum ring is placed on your eye whilst the laser is creating the flap. You will notice during this time your vision is dim and darker. The surgeon will then lift the flap and the exposed cornea will be treated (lasered). The flap is then repositioned and the same procedure repeated on your other eye.

Recovery

After the procedure you will be taken to your room to rest and the surgeon will check your eyes before your can go home. In the initial recovery period there may be a gritty sensation and sensitivity to light may be experienced, this typically lasts 24-48 hours. Care will be needed however for a longer period, e.g. no water in your eyes for 1 week, no swimming or heavy exercise or contact sports for a month.

Before discharge from the laser clinic, drops are given to help keep your eyes moist as well as prevent infection and inflammation. You will continue to administer these at home for the next few weeks. You should arrange for someone to drive you home where you should rest for the remainder of the day.

Follow-up

You will return to the clinic within the first 24-48 hours following this procedure to check on your progress. Your Laser Vision Eye Centre surgeons, David or Aris, will conduct this check up. You will also have check ups at 1-2 weeks and 3 months.

No More Glasses!!!
Aris and the team at the Laser Vision Eye Centre have been amazing! I had my eyes done last weekend and the whole process was really well organised. They answered all my questions and made sure I knew exactly what would happen. My vision is perfect now and I don't need to wear glasses any more. Awesome!! 😀 I would definitely recommend Aris and the Laser Vision Eye Centre.

Fantastic... PRESBYOND laser procedure
Dr Aris gave me complete confidence in the procedure I was having. At all times I felt I was in very able hands. I choose to have PRESBYOND laser treatment as I lost my reading vision and I had to wear glasses all the time - and I absolutely hated it! With this treatment I am now 3 months after the procedure and can see with great ease and I am enjoying life with out glasses. We achieved better results than ever anticipated.

The ‘Gold Standard’ of laser eye surgery
Mr David Anderson is one of the leading Consultant Ophthalmologists which is why I chose him to perform my surgery. During the consultation I was very much assured that I was in good hands, but also having the ‘Gold Standard’ of laser eye surgery. It was explained that my best option was LASEK due to an eye infection rendering me contact lens intolerant. This also left me with a slightly reduced tear film... read more.

Excellent Care
I received excellent care throughout my experience at Laser Vision Eye Centre under the clinical leadership of Mr David Anderson. Everything was explained before and as the procedure was carried out. The waiting time for the procedure was considerably shorter than on the NHS and I even received a telephone call from the hospital the next day to check that all was well.

Life changing experience
I have been very impressed by the level of pre op information given enabling me to make a knowledgeable decision on how to proceed. Mr ANDERSON explained exactly what was going on throughout, which really helped me feel reassured and safe. Post op the aftercare has been amazing, staff even called on a Sunday to check how I was feeling. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to everyone.

LASIK Presbyond Bilateral Laser Surgery
I recently underwent LASIK Presbyond surgery at the Wessex Nuffield Hospital. The surgery was performed by David Anderson and Aris Konstantopoulos and their incredible colleagues. I am so pleased I chose David and his team to carry out the procedure as the attention to detail both before, during and after surgery has been exceptional. Look no further 👀 this is the A Team! I can now write this review without the need for glasses.

I have been thoroughly impressed
I have been thoroughly impressed with the level of care and professionalism that Aris and his team have shown at all stages in the process. The initial assessment, the procedure itself and then follow-up consultations. Although this was something that I approached with much trepidation I am really happy with the way that it ended up and the path that I followed.
