After surgery you will return to your recliner chair where your vital signs will be checked and you will receive a well-deserved cup of coffee or tea and sandwiches. The sedation given to you in theatre could cause drowsiness and therefore you need to remain in the postoperative care for an hour before being discharged.
Within 24 hours of your surgery, your vision will be examined by your Surgeon.
If you had LASIK surgery, you will return home immediately afterwards.
Our Surgeons normally advise patients to close their eyes for 4-5 hours. This helps the healing process get a good start.
Your second examination is within seven to ten days.
