Eye laser treatments – Frequently Asked Questions
The technical examination is the first eye examination that is done to determine whether you meet the minimum requirements for eye laser treatment. The result of this examination indicates with 80% certainty whether your eyes can be lasered. If you meet all the requirements, you can make an appointment, once you’ve completed this examination, for the preliminary medical examination in which it will be determined with 100% certainty whether you are eligible for eye laser treatment.
The technical examination takes about 5 minutes and measures the strength, cornea thickness and the bulging (k value) of your eyes.
“Eye laser treatment can be frightening”
Anxiety is not a myth, but it is also not necessary to be afraid of eye laser treatment. The treatment itself is painless and certainly not dangerous. However, you may feel slight pain in the first hours after the treatment. Depending on the type of treatment, the post-pain varies from a few hours to 2 to 3 days and the recovery is usually very fast. In reality, most clients actually think it went better than expected. Do you still have questions, or are you afraid of undergoing the treatment? Then ask your eye doctor. They are happy to give you all the information you need.
“I can go blind resulting from eye laser treatment”
You cannot go blind from eye laser treatment. This is because the treatment takes place on the surface of the cornea. With the laser, we only get into the front of the eye. A person’s eyesight comes from the back of the eye, and we do not go anywhere near there during the treatment. The laser only treats the ‘window’ of the eye and not any of the area behind it.
“I have a low strength with a cylinder, so I am not eligible”
Almost all strengths can be treated with an eye laser treatment. A low strength or cylinder deviation is no reason to not be treated.
“I will need eye laser treatment again after a few years”
This is not true. The results of an eye laser treatment are permanent. You may need reading glasses later because the capacity of the eye lens decreases with age. This is a natural ageing process that cannot be prevented, even with eye laser treatment
“Little is known about any negative effects in the long term”
Since the early 1980s, a great deal of international experience has been gained with laser treatments. Research shows that the cornea recovers well and stably, and that there is no reason to doubt about the effects of the treatment after 20 years. The forerunner of eye laser surgery was successfully performed over 50 years ago and turned out to be completely safe, even though Professor Barraquer’s technology was nowhere near contemporary technology in terms of accuracy and safety.
“The treatment is expensive”
Eye laser treatment is costly because we work with very high technology and a lot of attention is given to the safety of the treatment. We cannot and do not want to cut back on that. In addition, we have a 24-hour availability service and the best and most experienced ophthalmologists.
They not only carry out the treatment, but also the preliminary examinations and all checks, so that we can be sure that your eyes are taken care of in the best way possible. This careful approach is expensive, but eye laser treatment is a one-off investment. The costs for glasses or lenses, on the other hand, keep coming back.
