Retina laser treatments
In simple terms, we explain retinal laser treatment, also known colloquially as “laser eye surgery,” so you can feel reassured and well informed.
What exactly is retinal laser treatment?
A special laser is used in retinal laser treatment to treat specific areas of the retina in the eye. This procedure can help treat or even prevent certain eye problems.
Why might I need this treatment?
Small tears or holes can sometimes form on the retina. To prevent these areas from getting larger or fluid from entering and causing problems, we can "seal" these areas with the laser.
Does the treatment hurt?
Do not worry, usually the treatment is painless. A slight tingling or warm sensation may occur, but this is completely normal.
How much time does the treatment take?
As a rule, only a few minutes are required for the treatment. After that you can go straight home.
Are there any possible side effects?
Of course, there are potential risks with any medical procedure, but they are rare. Some of the possible side effects could be mild blurred vision or minimal pain. Before the treatment we will inform you in detail about all possible risks.
When do I notice changes?
Within a few days, most patients feel an improvement. Nevertheless, we check regularly to make sure that everything is going as planned.
Are there any special considerations after the treatment?
It would be good if you wear sunglasses after the treatment, as your eyes may be more sensitive to light. Please also avoid strenuous activities for a few days.
Is it possible to see normally again after the treatment?
Yes, in most cases patients can see normally after treatment. However, it is important to keep all agreed-upon follow-up appointments.
