The intervention takes place at the Vision Laser centre and does not require hospitalisation. It is preferable that you do not wear makeup or perfume on the day of the intervention.

During the intervention

Upon your arrival, you will be given medication to help you relax. Anaesthetic is applied by simple instillation of eye drops which numb the surface of the eye. You lie comfortably under the laser machine.

A small instrument called a lid speculum holds your eyelids open and the intervention is performed according to the previously agreed method. The first phase is carried out (PRK, Femtosecond Lasik). The second phase consists of reshaping the corneal curve by laser according to your refractive error and your goals. You simply need to look fixedly at a light during the few seconds it takes for the treatment. Using the Eye-Tracker, the laser follows any micro-movements of the eye, ensuring perfect precision.

The third phase is the repositioning of the corneal flap during both Femtosecond Lasik. With PRK, a protective lens is applied and worn for three days. The same procedure is then carried out on the other eye. Protective glasses will be given to you as you leave the operating theatre.

After the intervention, you will receive postoperative instructions and recommendations. Your vision will be blurry for a few minutes, after which it will improve by the hour. We recommend that someone take you home and that you resume normal activities the next day, depending on how you feel, following Femtosecond Lasik treatment. For PRK, we suggest that you rest for 2 to 3 days. Your vision will fluctuate differently in each eye during this time.

Results

Recovery occurs within 12 hours following Femtosecond Lasik treatment. Recovery after PRK occurs within a week, during which you will experience visual fluctuations.

Recovery is slower in hypermetropic and presbyopic patients. It is practically immediate for close vision, but stabilisation of far sight can take several weeks, or even a few months. As complete stabilisation can take time, a slight temporary correction with glasses can be prescribed for far sight.
