Do I need to take time off work after laser eye surgery?

You will need to take the day of your surgery off from work and after your procedure we usually recommend you take some time off, however, the length of time will vary from person to person. Your OCL surgeon will assess your recovery rate to give you a more accurate and personal time scale but as a rough guide, we suggest you allow at least 24-48 hours, however, some people need up to a week off work to adjust to their new eyesight.

What can I expect after laser eye surgery?

According to studies assessing the results of laser eye surgery performed all around the world the average standard vision achieved by 95% of patients is around 20/40 vision with an average 85% of patients achieving 20/20 or better post-surgery.

When you think of good eyesight, 20/20 vision comes to everyones mind as the renowned standard of visual acuity. Having 20/20 vision means you can see at a distance of 20 feet what normal-sighted people can see from the same distance. As a comparison if you are told you have 20/100 vision this means you can see at a distance of 20 feet what a normal-sighted person should see at a 100 feet from the chart which in turn means poor vision. The measurement is based on The Snellen Chart (the usual black and white eye chart found on the wall of opticians which lists lines of letters decreasing in size). The world populations average result from The Snellen chart is what normal eyesight is based on.

More specialist clinics will have better results than this. OCLs published results in the peer-reviewed literature are among the best in the World. In a series of 887 myopic eyes, 96.9% of his patients achieved a vision of 20/20 or better when each eye was tested separately and a 100% achieved this level of vision when both eyes were tested together.
