A lot of people know they want laser eye surgery to sort out their vision problems. After years of relying on glasses and contact lenses - which are certainly not without their drawbacks - the ability to see properly for the rest of one's life without visual aids is one of the most liberating experiences you could ever hope for. However, many people have questions about future treatment that require answers. Here are a few of the most frequently asked ones!

Firstly, many people ask why they may need a consultation. However, they must be aware that there are many factors that must be considered during assessment of the suitability for treatment, such as your prescription and the overall health of your eye. It is also a great opportunity for the individual undergoing treatment to find out any answers to questions they may have in order to fully understand the benefits and risks of vision correction. You can meet a personal advisor who answers questions you have, while specialist optometrists perform tests on the eyes.

Many people also wonder if there are waiting lists for treatment. Naturally, a lot of people are concerned about how long they will need to take off work. Obviously, a consultation is needed to accurately map and measure eyes and find out the specifics of your personal treatment, though on average this eye surgery - including immediate post-treatment time - will take half a day. If you are having just one eye treated, you can return to your employer that day, though it is recommended you take some time off to rest and recuperate. If both eyes are done at the same time, you'll need a break of around five days or more; on top of this, there are between five and six recommended aftercare appointments.

Finally, certain people may believe that their prescription is too strong for them to have work done. However, it is possible that advanced procedures such as IOL - intra ocular lens treatment - can work. After all, laser eye surgery can now correct the vision of around 90 per cent of people in the UK!
