Queensland Laser Vision - Assessment Process


ASSESSMENT PROCESS


 

Our initial assessment involves an in-depth consultation to determine if laser eye surgery is right for you. Our optometrists perform this examination.
 

We not only measure essential parameters of your eyes, we discuss your lifestyle, your needs for work, leisure and day to day activities.

For your assessment:

         Allow 1 hour of your time

         Wear your spectacles

         Leave your soft contact lenses out for at least 2-3 days prior

         Leave RGP/hard contact lenses out for at least 1-2 weeks prior

         Bring sunglasses: your eyes will be sensitive to the light and glare

         DO NOT DRIVE after the assessment as your pupils will be dilated

During the assessment we use eyedrops which will dilate your pupils. This effect can last up to 24 hours. Reading vision will be blurry for 3-4 hours. Dilated pupils make you very glare sensitive and you will need to wear sunglasses outside. Many people are unable to drive because of this discomfort. The purpose for using this kind of eyedrop is to determine your exact prescription - the basis for successful outcomes.

It is essential to remove contact lenses for the specified period prior to your assessment. Contact lenses can adversely affect the measurements we take. We need to accurately measure the shape and thickness of your eye. Contact lens wear can induce corneal swelling and surface distortion. This can result in false and misleading results.

The shape and thickness of your corneas, the health of your eyes and the amount of your prescription then determine which procedure you are suitable for:

         LASIK

         PRK
 

Almost 40% of interested people assessed are unsuitable for Laser Corrective Surgery.  If you are not a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery, the optometrist will discuss other procedures and / or options, such as: ICL (implantable contact lens), Lens Exchange or Refractive Lensectomy. These alternate procedures are performed by our surgeons at other day surgeries.

We look forward to sharing the vision with you
