Your operation in three steps:
Before your operation
On the day of your treatment, you will spend an hour with us. Upon your arrival at the centre we will give you a pre-medication to relax you and a sterile robe to wear.
During your operation
During your procedure, you will be lying on an ophthalmological chair. We will apply a topical anesthesia in the form of eye drops.
The 20-minute procedure consists of two steps:
- The VISUMAX laser creates a corneal flap. Your surgeon lifts the flap.
- The EXCIMER laser reshapes your cornea correction your visual impairment
- Your surgeon will then gently reposition the flap that naturally adheres to the cornea.
After that, the treatment is finished. The procedure is not painful and is perfectly safe.
After your operation
For your departure, it is necessary to be met by an accompanying person. We advise you to go home and rest with your eyes closed for 3 to 4 hours.
You will need to follow the surgeons instructions by instilling anti-inflammatory and antibiotic eye drops. We will need to perform a post-operative check-up between 1 and 10 days.
It is advisable to avoid situations where there may be a risk of infection for 3 to 4 days after your treatment.
