So, you’ve finished the Christmas shopping and wrapped up all the gifts you’ve bought for the special people in your life. Now, what Christmas present are you going to give yourself this year? How about the most precious gift of all – better vision?
If you’ve been putting off laser eye surgery or believe that it’s not appropriate for you, there could be many different reasons behind that decision. Here at Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham, we often find that a variety of myths and misconceptions have been holding people back from enjoying the improved eyesight they deserve.
Let’s ring the changes for 2020 by answering some common questions that we’re asked by our patients all the time.
Is laser eye surgery painful?
Not at all – not only are our vision improvement procedures pain-free, they’re also incredibly quick. Most procedures only take about 10 minutes.
Does laser eye surgery involve needles?
Again, no – our highly experienced eye surgeon Mark Wevill uses eye drops to anaesthetise the eye. So, those who dislike needles have nothing to fear!
Is laser eye surgery very expensive?
You will probably find that our procedures are surprisingly affordable, as well as being a fantastic investment in your future and well-being. The lifetime cost of glasses and contact lenses is much higher than the cost of laser eye surgery. We offer a free consultation and transparent pricing.
How do I know which laser eye surgery treatment is right for me?
We will carry out a comprehensive eye assessment to ensure that you receive the most effective and suitable treatment. We offer three types of laser eye surgery procedure: SMILE, LASIK and LASEK, which are most appropriate for people aged between 20 and 50.
For older patients, lens replacement surgery – also known as refractive lens exchange (RLE) – is usually the best choice.
We’ve transformed the lives of thousands of people in the West Midlands so, why not make a New Year’s resolution to join them and enjoy 2020 vision in 2020?
