How long will my recovery last?

Your recovery period depends on the type of laser eye surgery you’ve had and your recovery rate. Most LASIK surgery patients have normal vision and can return within 24-48 hours after surgery, while those who have LASEK treatments may take up to a week to recover. Your surgeon will tell you beforehand how much time you’ll need to take off.

4 Stages: Prep, Surgery, Recovery and Aftercare

The particular laser eye treatment that is right for you will depend on your budget and eye condition.  Click the tabs below to get an overview of the treatment types offered. 

  • Step 1: Anaesthetic Eye Drops

    The eye is quickly numbed with some anaesthetic eye drops.

  • Step 2: Surgery

    You'll only be in the surgical theatre for around 10 minutes and the actual laser will only be used from just a few seconds to two minutes depending upon the complexity of your prescription. The procedure should be painless.

  • Step 3: Recovery

    The length of your recovery period depends on the type of laser eye surgery you’ve had and your overall health. In general, LASIK surgery patients can expect to have normal vision and return to work within 24-48 hours after surgery.  Patients who underwent LASEK surgery may take up to one week to recover. Your surgeon will give you an expected recovery duration in your initial consultation. 

  • Aftercare

    You will also be provided antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops to use after your procedure. Clinics will typically offer some aftercare provision as standard for all patients which is included in the price. This normally involves 2 to 4 checkups over the course of 3-12 months, depending on the clinic.
