Life After Laser Eye Surgery
A Comprehensive Aftercare Program
Choosing the right clinic for laser eye surgery is an important decision. Part of the process that should be considered is the experience of the surgeon and of course the aftercare provided by the clinic.

At each visit you will always see David Gartry, even after your laser eye surgery. We also provide patients with a comprehensive aftercare program, to ensure not only a great visual result, but good eye health and recovery.

If you’ve worn glasses or lenses for most of your life, then it’s hard to imagine being free from them. After surgery, realising each day that you don’t need to put lenses in or take them out, or rely on your glasses for everything is truly incredible.

The most common feedback we get from our patients after surgery is ‘Why didn’t I get it done sooner?!’ Our patients are often telling us the various ways in which LASIK has transformed their lives. For some the ability to go on holiday and be able to see clearly after jumping in the pool is a game-changer, for others just the simple fact that upon waking, they can look out of the window and clearly see into the distance. Or simply know which bottle is which when washing their hair in the shower! We also have a common complaint – patients who are used to wearing contact lenses often find in the first few weeks after surgery; they are just about to nod off after a long day, open their eyes as they turn over, can read the alarm clock and jump up thinking they’ve left their contacts in – to suddenly remember they no longer wear them and are left wide awake!

A Comprehensive Aftercare Program

Your care with David Gartry doesn’t stop when you leave after your treatment. Most patients are discharged at the 3 month follow up as the vision has usually settled to the desired outcome. Unlike most other providers, thanks to David Gartry’s ‘open door’ policy, you will see him at every one of your follow up appointments. At each appointment, we will check your vision and the health of your eyes. You will get to see the same friendly team members who are on hand to answer any questions.

Our laser eye surgery patients are often keen to recount their stories to help those considering treatment. If you wish to provide us with a video testimonial or even some words or images of your experience then please do get in touch.
