Take Me To Post Comment Form


A thorough and effective aftercare process has been essential when it comes to the laser eye surgery. If you had any other kind of surgery you won’t simply get up, walk home and never think about it again and so why should be your eyes any different. When choosing a laser eye surgery clinic, the aftercare is something you need to consider very carefully. After all, getting the right care is significant to ensure you get the results you are hoping for while also reducing the likelihood of any complication or irritation post treatment. Read to find out everything you need to know.

Why is the aftercare process so important?

A lot of people will overlook the importance of getting proper aftercare post the laser eye surgery. It is crucial to recognize that your are eyes will be sensitive following the treatment and you need to protect them for reducing the risk of complications. In order to ensure that you get great results from your surgery, it is important to listen to the advice of your ophthalmic surgeon. We offer patients with a follow-up appointment the day post surgery. After this, you’ll have to undergo routine checks throughout the following year and you can always contact us for further queries. This helps to ensure that any problems are picked up earlier and be addressed as soon as possible.

Aftercare advice for laser eye surgery

Here are our aftercare tips to ensure you experience the laser eye surgery as smoothly as possible:

Make sure you’ve got the help you need

Ask a friend or a family member to pick you up from the clinic post your treatment. Let someone know if you need any help with everyday tasks following your surgery.

Avoid dusty environments

Avoid dust as much as possible for at least a week post the laser eye treatment. Your eyes will heal during this period and if they come in contact with dirt, it may cause an infection.
Take care when showering
You should be extra careful when washing your face or hair post laser eye surgery. Avoid taking a shower until the day post your treatment and take care not to get soap or any other products near your eyes.

Wear sunglasses

Wear sunglasses for a few days post treatment as you may feel more sensitive to light straight after you’ve had the laser eye surgery. It will help you to feel more comfortable.

Use eye drops

The antibiotic eye drops can help prevent infections from occurring as well as helping to counteract problems with dry eyes. Our experienced surgeons will provide you with suitable eye drops to use post your laser eye treatment.

What NOT to do after laser eye surgery?

Go on holiday

Wait around for ten days post laser eye surgery before going on a holiday. Your eyes need to heal and its advisable to stay close to home in case you have any concerns or need further treatment.

Go to work

You will be able to retun to work a day or two if you had LASIK or SMILE eye surgery. You may need longer if you’ve had LASEK, depending on your circumstances and the type of role you do.

Wear eye make-up

Do not wear any eye makeup or any products around your eyes for at least a week post surgery.

Rub your eyes

Rubbing your eyes after LASIK eye treatment can interfere with the flap created during the surgery.

Smoke or be around smokers

If smoke gets into your eye, it will increase the chances of you rubbing your eyes which will cause real discomfort.

When to get in touch with your surgeon

If you experience pain, redness, sudden decrease in vision and discharge from your eye then it’s time to call the doctor.
