The Preparation

  • On arrival you will be asked to sign a consent form , then you will be taken into one of our preparation rooms
  • Your eyes will be cleaned and anesthetic eye drops will be instilled to numb your eyes
  • When you are ready ,you will be escorted into the laser room and helped to lie down on the laser couch
  • The doctor will ask you to open both eyes wide and an eyelid holder will be placed to prevent your eye from closing. If you do try to close your eye you will experience some discomfort.
  • You will be asked to look at the blinking light, this light will disappear temporarily whilst the flap is made . Again the doctor will ask you to look at the blinking light.
  • In less than a minute the laser will reshape your cornea and your vision will be corrected 

  • Do have someone to pick you up ,as you will not be able to drive after surgery

  • At Muscat Eye Laser Center we know how uncomfortable they can be and how they can affect your quality of life . That’s why we recommend you have Lasik plugs fitted as part of your after care.
  • The unique device is inserted into the tear duct and promotes natural lubrication to your eyes .The Lasik plugs gradually dissolves over a period of 3-months providing you with relief from experiencing the discomfort of eyes.
  • As part of your post Lasik treatment we recommend the insertion of Lasik plugs on your first follow-up appointment.
