  • Step 1 - How will this work?

    When we first speak to you, we will listen to your needs and ask a few key questions about your eyesight. Not everyone is a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery and the first step towards working out your suitability will be to speak to our one of our friendly and professional team. (David Gartry also performs refractive lens exchange surgery so therefore provides an alternative if laser eye surgery might not be the right treatment for you.)

    If we feel that you might be suitable we will invite you in for a consultation at either The Wimpole Street Eye Clinic in Marylebone (next to Harley Street), in London's West End or The Moorfields Private Outpatient Centre which is on City Road and part of Moorfields Eye Hospital.

    So, let's get started with a few simple questions that we need to know before we can call you to go through the next steps...

  • Step 3 - What to expect from your surgery?

    Your friends or family might have also had laser eye surgery to correct their vision – but what exactly IS laser eye surgery? Is it safe? What is involved? How to choose the best clinic or surgeon? There are so many questions involved and as with any procedure you should take your time in working out what is best for you. We take time to make sure every one of our patients is well informed, treated as an individual and comfortable as they embark on their laser eye surgery journey. Put simply laser eye surgery is a procedure to correct vision by reshaping the cornea by using a laser.

    The most common type of laser eye surgery today is known as LASIK – this is short for (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis). LASIK is a very quick procedure and has become the gold-standard of laser eye surgery. Technological advances combined with years of surgical expertise now mean that fantastic results can be achieved. Many patients often explain to us how they wished they had undergone the procedure years ago, such is the dramatic improvement in their day to day lives after laser eye surgery. We also offer LASEK laser eye surgery – this is a similar treatment to LASIK but has certain advantages for specific types of patients.
