You are not able to drive a car for several hours after examination!

Laser treatment procedure
• No makeup
• No perfume or aftershave immediately prior surgery
• Driving prohibited
• Eating allowed
Immediately prior to the treatment
• Further subjective refraction
• Slit lamp examination
• Short medical counceling
• Application of anaesthetic eye drops
• Insertion of a lid speculum
• Laser treatment
• Handing over of UV protection glasses
The recovery of the eyes will last several days. Irritations and pain are possible during that time. However these can be effectively well treated by a therapeutic contact lens and appropriate medicine. Additionally the healing process is supported by the application of eye drops.
Until the final check 3 months after surgery, we recommend periodically follow-up checks.
