Laser Eye Surgery Procedures Available at Optyco

There are a number of Laser Eye Surgery Procedures and Laser Eye Surgery Treatments available as detailed below:

LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is currently one of the most frequently performed elective laser eye surgery procedures in the United Kingdom and worldwide. LASIK Eye Surgery is a highly effective outpatient laser eye treatment that is suitable for most low, moderate and higher prescriptions. LASIK Eye Surgery is performed by creating a U-shaped protective flap on the front surface of the eye. A laser with a cool beam of light is used to gently reshape the front window of your eye (cornea).
LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) is a laser eye surgery procedure that involves removing the top layer of the cornea before re-sculpting the cornea with the excimer laser. During LASEK Eye Surgery this top layer or ‘epithelial sheet’ is then replaced on the surface of the eye and a soft contact lens is applied as a ‘bandage’ for a few days following surgery. While not a common Laser Eye Surgery Treatment it may still be suitable for certain patients. Below details the difference between LASIK Eye Surgery and LASEK Eye Surgery.
What is the difference between LASIK and LASEK?
LASIK Eye Surgery involves creating a protective flap on the tissue, whereas LASEK Eye Surgery involves loosening the tissue with a medical solution and then carefully moving it to the side for the laser part of the procedure. After the laser procedure, the tissue is repositioned and the healing process begins. During this healing process, the vision gradually and steadily improves. It is important to have all the information about Laser Eye Surgery Treatments before making this big decision. Optyco believe in providing patients with all this information.
Why would I have LASEK over LASIK?
LASEK Eye Surgery is a great option for patients previously turned down for LASIK Eye Surgery treatment because of thin or unusually shaped corneas. It is also an option for patients involved in a lot of contact sport. Imagine being able to play your favourite spot without glasses or contact lenses.
Other Laser Eye Surgery Procedures and Laser Eye Surgery Treatments
Also Available (Please Contact Us For Suitability Needs): Implantable Contact Lens, Refractive Lens Exchange, Accommodating Implants, Multifocal Implants, Corneal Inlays For Reading Correction, Keratoconus And Cross Linkage Surgery, Corneal Transplant Surgery, Cataract Surgery.

During this exam you will be assessed to see if you are are a successful patient for laser eye surgery with a Free Laser Eye Visual Consultation. Your Optometrist will also answer any questions you may have regarding laser eye treatment and laser eye procedures.

The free laser eye visual consultation will take roughly one hour and can be arranged for whenever is most convenient for you. Towards the end of your visit, you will be able to book a Pre-Operative consultation with one of our Ophthalmic Surgeons.
Post-Operative Care
As part of our commitment to your ongoing care and complete satisfaction with our laser eye surgery service, our aftercare programme includes a series of visits to your community optometrist. There are usually 5 visits on average, each lasting between 5 to 15 minutes. This will happen over a period of 6-9 months and each visit will include a thorough eye examination. This allows us to monitor your progress and ensure your eyes are healing well. After you have been discharged from our aftercare programme, you should not require any further visits. However if you have any concerns our aftercare team are always here to help you at any time.
Pre-Operative Consultation & Surgery
On the day of your laser eye treatment, it is advisable that you bring a friend or a family member to accompany you. When you arrive at the clinic you will be greeted by a member of our clinic team who will ensure that you are cared for all throughout your visit. You will then meet the team, including your surgeon, the nurses and a technician, who will all be with you for the duration of your surgery. The surgeon will explain the details, stages of the surgery and answer any additional questions you may have. Your surgeon will then carry out additional checks and give their final approval for proceeding with the laser eye surgery. The procedure itself will only take a few minutes. After your surgery you will be relocated to our recovery suite where your surgeon will carry out a Post-Operative examination of your vision. Following this, your nurse will explain the full aftercare routine you will need to follow. You will also receive a full information pack, including our 24 hour aftercare contact number. Your entire visit should take no more than two hours.
Patients will need to use prescribed antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops during the recovery period. Eye exams are important, we therefore strongly recommend that everyone, not just the laser vision correction patients, have a dilated eye exam performed by their eye Optometrist 1-2 every years. This is a proactive way to ensure your eyes are healthy and functioning properly.

Free Laser Eye Visual Assessment

Prior to Laser Eye Surgery, each patient will receive a free in-depth laser eye visual consultation and assessment lasting for up to an hour. During this examination, your specialist Optometrist will assess your eyes and visual needs to determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for Laser Eye Surgery. All your questions and concerns will be discussed in depth with a specialist Optometrist.  He will offer you support and advice at every stage of your Laser Eye Surgery Treatments and Laser Eye Surgery Procedures.

Gives detailed information about the surface of your cornea. This provides the specialist refractive optometrist and surgeon with accurate measurements relating to the surface shape and thickness of your cornea. This is a vital test in determining if there is enough tissue to perform the surgery, together with pachymetry (below).

CustomVue Wavescan
Identifies and measures lower and higher order aberrations in your eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. It provides the essential data used in a customvue treatment.
Visual Acuity Testing
Measures the quantity of vision the eye can see at near and far distances. The tests usually involve reading letters and symbols of different sizes on the eye chart. Your uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) is what you see without glasses or contact lenses, while your best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) is what you see with the optimum correction in place.
Up to date measurement of the prescription of your eyes using specialised techniques and methods to increase accuracy.
Cycloplegic Refraction
A cycloplegic refraction is the procedure used to determine a patient’s true prescription (or refractive error) by temporarily relaxing the muscles that aid in focusing using specialist drops. This aids the assessment of the long term stability of your prescription.
This test takes a measurement of the size of your pupils in the dark when they are at their largest, using infrared technology. It is necessary to establish the largest size your pupil is likely to get in dim light or dark in order to ensure that the laser treatment zone is at least that large.

This involves a highly magnified, accurate microscopic and optical system used to examine your eyes structures in detail.
Eye Dominance
As we all have one hand stronger than the other, this test looks at which eye is the stronger and has the most focusing ability.

The specialist refractive optometrist will assess the health of your eyes both internally and externally focusing in particular on the retina. Specialist drops used to dilate your pupils will allow an excellent peripheral view. This enables extremely thorough health checks and ability to detect of any signs or risks of possible pathology.

Before our specialist refractive optometrist is allowed to undertake pre-operative free laser eye visual consultation, they undergo an intensive training process.  This is to further their knowledge and experience gained in regular optometry. These professionals are then reviewed and assessed on an ongoing basis to ensure they are maintaining the high standards expected at the Optyco clinic. We at Optyco Laser Eye Surgery Clinic believe in explaining in depth to our patients your Laser Eye Surgery. This includes Laser Eye Surgery Treatment options and potential Laser Eye Surgery Risks involved.
