Your Consultation Treatment and After Care
At your first consultation, you will meet Allon Barsam and his team. This will give you the opportunity to experience the high levels of professionalism, warmth, care and attention you will receive whilst being treated. Your consultation will last approximately 90 minutes, beginning with a thorough eye examination.
Mr Barsam will study your eyes using cutting-edge diagnostic equipment so he can assess your vision and the health of your eyes. These tests will be totally painless. We will talk to you about your occupation, hobbies, reading habits and distance vision requirements so he can get a complete picture of how best to correct your vision. Your treatment will be totally customised to you and the way you want to live your life.
After this Mr Barsam will take time to discuss your test results with you and answer any questions you may have; as well as talking with you about the procedure he recommends to correct your vision. You will leave your appointment with all the information you need to feel informed about the eye surgery Mr Barsam is recommending. You will not need to make your mind up immediately and will be encouraged to reflect on whether you’d like to go ahead with surgery. If you do decide to go ahead, a dedicated member of our team will assist you through the booking process.
On The Day Of Your Surgery
It is perfectly normal to feel slightly anxious on the day of your surgery. Allon Barsam has had laser eye surgery himself so completely understands how you may be feeling. You can be sure that you are in safe hands, and that Mr Barsam and his team will do everything they can to make your procedure smooth and stress-free. When you arrive for your appointment, our experienced, friendly and empathetic team of nurses and technicians will welcome you and set you at ease.
The team will go through any necessary paperwork with you and will talk you through how to use your post-operative drops and how to best look after your eyes in the days and weeks after surgery. You will meet Mr Barsam again before your surgery and will have ample opportunity to ask him any questions. During the procedure, Mr Barsam will reassure you and talk you through each step so you feel calm and in control.
After Your Surgery
When your surgery is finished, you can relax with a drink in the recovery lounge before going home to rest. We ask that you don’t drive or use the London Underground (Tube) on the day of your surgery.
Waking up the morning after surgery is a wonderful moment for our vision correction patients. Due to Mr Barsam’s advanced techniques, training and state of-the-art technology, your visual recovery will be incredibly fast. The vast majority of our patients enjoy perfect vision as early as the day after surgery.
Following your surgery, you will be invited to attend follow-up appointments as part of a fully comprehensive aftercare package. The number of visits required depends on the type of surgery you have. At each appointment, we will check your vision and the health of your eyes. You will always see Mr Barsam at your follow-up appointments.
