Safety is the basis of everything we do at Focus.
Refractive procedures are now safer than they have ever been, but it is still surgery and should always be treated as such. If that sentence rings true, then Focus may well be the right clinic for you.
Laser eye surgery safety is primarily about only operating on good candidates
There are possible side effects for all medical interventions as there are for all drugs, and all of which will be discussed during your consultation. The advent of new technologies, such as wavefront, has meant that a lot of side effects previously associated with laser correction (such as halos or glare at night) are now much rarer than before.
5 times fewer re-treatments than published studies
The LASIK protocols created and followed at Focus Clinic have led to a remarkably low re-treatment rate, at less than 1% of typically short-sighted cases (2014 data). Primary treatments, even for high levels of myopia, remain consistently accurate.

We use bladeless laser technology instead of a blade to eliminate previous risks associated with creating a corneal flap. We provide you with a course of drops following your surgery to help prevent any infection, inflammation and to minimize symptoms of dry eyes.
We carefully screen and select patients for surgery to ensure the lowest possible risk of complications. Laser eye surgery safety is primarily about only operating on good candidates for treatment, and saying No to patients with increased risks from correction.
20 times less dry eye than published rates
But there is no substitute for a clinic where the guiding ethos from above is from a surgeon who cares about each patient, and who asks “What if these were my eyes – what would I do?” before each operation.
That’s what a surgeon-owned and led clinic is all about.
