Surgery

Expect to be at Canberra Eye Laser for approximately 2 hours. This enables us to complete necessary paperwork and gives you an opportunity to ask any last minute questions whislt we program the lasers. 

You will be in the treatment room for about 20-30 minutes, but the crucial laser time is only seconds for each eye.  During the procedure you will be asked to lie on a bed and look up into the laser's centering light. Anaesthetic eye drops will be given and a small lid speculum will prevent your eyelids from blinking. The laser and the surgeon will ensure that your eye is centred during the procedure. 

Dress comfortably and bring a companion on the day of treatment to drive you home.  They are welcome to stay and watch the procedure from our viewing area, if you wish, and we will give you a DVD to take home as a momento.

Postoperative drops and detailed instructions will be provided before you leave the facility.
