Comprehensive aftercare for every patient.
At Optical Express, aftercare is not an afterthought. We believe that how you’re looked after following your surgery is just as important as the procedure itself.
That’s why we’ve designed a comprehensive aftercare programme which checks and monitors your eye health. It’s our way of making sure that every patient’s journey to great vision is as successful as possible.
You can be sure that we’ll be on hand to give you any support you need on the way to clearer, sharper vision.
Following your laser eye surgery, you can rest assured that Optical Express will continue to look after you. It's very important to us that you're satisfied with your vision and that your eyes are healthy after laser eye surgery.
After surgery, you may experience mild discomfort and sensitivity to light. Your eyes may look a little bloodshot too. You should wear non-prescription sunglasses or protective goggles for your journey home and take a nap if possible.
As part of your surgical aftercare programme, you'll attend a next day appointment, where your surgeon or optometrist will check to make sure that your recovery is progressing as it should.
1 and 3 months
All Optical Express laser eye surgery patients are invited to one-month and three-month appointments from the date of their treatment and have access to our out-of-hours medical helpline giving access to 24-hour clinical advice.
One year on
Just like a visit to the dentist, your eye examination should be part of your regular health checks. We recommend you attend an annual or bi-annual eye examination, so that you can be confident that your eyes are healthy.
