Safety and Comfort
Safety of our patients is top of our list of priorities.
We do not compromise on safety. We treat each eye individually with freshly sterilized instruments and use the newer disposable instruments wherever possible. We are also well versed with dealing with complex cases turned down by other centres or patients who had poor outcomes. We consistently audit our results and as an academic and training Centre we often present our results nationally and internationally.
We understand patients may feel nervous about undergoing any form of eye surgery. For your comfort, the refractive surgery procedures performed at our St Helens centre are largely painless. Most procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic with early recovery of vision and return to work.
