Am I suitable for laser eye surgery?
Millions of people world-wide have undergone laser refractive surgery. It’s an excellent solution for most patients who meet the following criteria:
- Over 18
- Not pregnant or breast feeding
- In general good health
- Have had a stable prescription for at least a year.
The best way to find out if you’re suitable for laser eye surgery is to come in for a consultation.
When you make your appointment, we will ask you to send us a referral from your optometrist along with your most recent prescription, preferably no more than 6 or 12 months old, so that Dr Gupta can pre-screen your suitability for laser vision correction.
Dr Gupta will take you through a thorough examination, explain how you’ll benefit from laser surgery, and discuss the best option for you. Your laser assessment will be bulk billed if you bring a referral from your optometrist. Please note: soft contact lens wearers should leave their lenses out for 3 days before consultation.
