It depends on the age of the patient. Generally, those under the age of 40 who have had LASIK eye surgery in Dubai are, for the most part able to get rid of their glasses. Those over the age of 40 may still need to use them to help with reading small print. However, the level of dependency is still significantly reduced.
You can, but not immediately after. Furthermore, you should only get back into sports only if your doctor explicitly states that you can. LASIK in Dubai is a very sensitive procedure that requires your support to be successful. Swimming in particular should be avoided unless otherwise advised. All it takes is one wrong move to infect your eyes so make sure you take the utmost precautions to maintain the results.
Modern day demands have led to a serious deterioration in self-care which is giving rise to a host of health issues. Thanks to extended hours spent in front of screens emitting artificial light, our eyes are subject to incredible strain on a daily basis. In order to ensure you enjoy optimal vision long for years to come, you should make changes to your lifestyle gradually. Start by changing your diet. Incorporate plenty of leafy greens, fruits and vegetables along with nuts and fish which are great for your eyes. You can also help yourself by taking breaks while working so your eyes have a chance to rest. Make a conscious effort to stay away from your phone and always read in places that have plenty of light.
Those under the age of 18 will not be considered for LASIK. This rule is standard and cannot be negotiated under any circumstance. Your child will need to depend on contact lenses and glasses to get through, until they are old enough to qualify. This age barrier is there for extra safety. It is too risky to operate on children as they are still very young and their body is still adapting and changing on a daily basis. You can bring your child in for an initial consultation to assess their suitability for LASIK in Dubai.
Yes you must. Even if you have perfect 20/20 vision and have no history of eye health ailments in your family, you still need to get yourself checked regularly. Many dormant problems lie hidden for a long time, only rising to the surface when it is too late to rectify it. Eye exams are able to locate and identify these problems, thereby allowing you to seek the treatment you need in time. Our doctors will be able to advise you more on the subject. Where LASIK in Dubai is concerned, you will need to schedule regular checkups for safety.

In general, LASIK should never be performed unless a numbing agent is used beforehand. This is typically in the form of drops, which are used to numb the eye. After a few minutes, the eye becomes numb and the surgeon can begin to work. We use the highest quality numbing drops for LASIK eye surgery in Dubai, and our doctors do not operate otherwise. Once it wears off, you will feel some discomfort, however it will be mild. Your doctor will prescribe some medication to take along with painkillers that should help reduce discomfort.
The surgery in itself is not time-consuming. Although you will need to take the whole day off to recover and recuperate, the procedure on its own only takes 30 minutes for both eyes. If you are getting surgery on one eye, it could take anywhere between 10-15 minutes.
