    Keratoconus in the family. Can I have LASIK?

    Ziemer or Intralase?

    The new Ziemer LDV Crystal Line at Focus, currently the only one in the UK, is a remarkable flap creation tool. It has a 33 times faster repetition rate than the latest iFS 150KHz model, with energy per pulse far lower, tighter energy focus and the shortest suction-on time. We can do both eyes safely and very accurately in around 6 minutes.

  • Laser Eye Surgery and Steep Corneas

    Laser Eye Surgery and Steep Corneas

    In laser eye surgery i.e. LASIK, such a mechanical cut does bring a small risk of a buttonhole flap (flap with a hole) when the corneas are steep, and with 80% of UK clinics now offering femtosecond LASIK, please forget the blade option.

  • LASIK Enhancements

  • Laser Eye Surgery and Contact Lenses

    Laser Eye Surgery and Contact Lenses

    I want to know why some LASIK companies say to have soft contact lens out 2 days prior to a consultation, some 14 days, others 1 day. Why is there such a difference? And does it matter how long you have had your contacts out for prior to a pre-consult? And will it affect the outcome, as in if you are a candidate for a procedure?

  • Vision After LASEK Enhancement

    Vision After LASEK Enhancement

    For surface laser correction (PRK/LASEK) the full result can take months to fully settle and the vision is often a bit off at 4 weeks post-op. You should find it will settle more over the next 4-8 weeks.

    High Myopia (Short-sight) and Laser Eye Surgery

    Lasik eligibility with high myopia (short-sight) will depend mainly on your corneal thickness and pupil size in the dark. The WaveLight laser that I use takes relatively little tissue per dioptre.
