Am I Suitable for Laser Eye Surgery?

am I suitable for laser eye surgery

Many patients ask: Am I suitable for laser eye surgery?

As all eyes are unique, each patient we meet here at Advanced Vision Care requires a bespoke treatment. So we offer as wide a range of surgical procedures as possible to provide an excellent service to as many patients as possible. While High Street clinics treat only easy cases to accelerate turnover and increase profits, AVC is one of the few eye clinics in the UK to specialise in complex cases.

Patients regularly come to us after being turned down by other doctors because AVC offers:

  • Treatments for all prescriptions
  • Both laser eye surgery and non-laser surgeries
  • Cutting-edge technologies not offered elsewhere, including Advanced Wavefront Intralase with the Zyoptix System
  • An elite team of highly specialised eye surgeons, each of whom has more than 25 years experience in their respective field

Common Restrictions

Although we are passionate about correcting the sight of all those we possibly can, AVC neither provides experimental treatments nor operate on those who suffer from conditions that prevent safe and ethical treatment. With this in mind, we are able to treat about 98% of those who come to us for consultation.

Common reasons patients are found unsuitable for treatment include:

  • Age: Patients younger than 18 are ineligible.
  • Pregnancy: Because refractive error often vary during pregnancy
  • Unusually Thin Corneas
  • Unusually Large Pupils
  • Prescription Fluctuation: Those whose prescriptions have changed significantly in the past year should wait until their vision stabilises before undergoing surgery
  • Specific medication
  • Specific health conditions

With the best international surgical team in the UK, our combined expertise in laser and non-laser treatments is without precedent. We take great pride in having the skills to help even those who have been turned down by other clinics. So book a consultation now to learn how Advanced Vision Care can perfect your sight and improve your quality of life today.
