Lasek Eye Surgery

LASEK is an alternative treatment to iLASIK comprising only one laser to correct your vision, after the surgeon has temporarily folded aside a thin layer of cells to allow access to the cornea.

As no protective flap is created, a protective soft contact lens ‘bandage’ is then worn for around four days following your treatment to provide additional comfort during healing.

Optical Express offers iDesign LASEK treatment, the industry’s most advanced, high-definition, wavefront-guided measurement technology for wavefront treatment.

Just like a fingerprint, your eyes are unique – each eye having its own individual characteristics.

At Optical Express, both our iLASIK and LASEK treatments may be enhanced with iDesign, revolutionary wavefront diagnostic technology that can detect even the most minute imperfections of your eye, allowing your surgeon to customise your treatment to the exact specification of your eyes.

iDesign captures over 1,200 micro readings of your eye prescription, five times more than previous wavefront technology. To put this in context, for glasses and contact lenses only one reading is measured.

Using advanced, high-definition, wavefront-guided technology to take a one-of-a-kind snapshot of your eye, iDesign collects five different measurements at the push of a button.

This 3-D image is a highly accurate ‘blueprint’ of your eye, detailing every minute characteristic, allowing your surgeon to generate a customised treatment plan, unique to you. This information is then transferred to the computer-guided laser to correct these imperfections, thus correcting your vision.

Not only does iDesign give us the ability to correct your eye prescription to a higher accuracy than your glasses and contact lenses, resulting in better vision, but we can now treat more complex and higher prescriptions than ever before.

Optical Express is Europe’s No.1 provider of laser eye surgery and if you choose to have laser eye surgery with us, you will receive treatment from experienced surgeons you can trust.

A Step-by-Step Guide

The entire LASEK eye treatment takes only minutes and both eyes can be treated by on the same day.

The healing process is slightly longer than with iLASIK and while many patients can see immediate differences in their vision, it takes a number of days for it to fully settle.

1. LASEK preparation

Anaesthetic drops are applied to the eye to numb the eye and a lid holder is put in place to stabilise your eye.

2. LASEK surface adjustment

The surface of the outer layer of the cornea is gently moved by the surgeon.

3. LASEK vision correction

A laser is used to apply tiny computer controlled pulses of cool laser beams to reshape the outer layer of the cornea to correct your vision.

4. LASEK surface replacement

The surgeon gently replaces the surface layer to its original position.

5. LASEK completion

A protective contact lens ‘bandage’ is placed on to the eye to provide comfort during healing.
