Top questions to ask at your laser eye surgery consultation

Published on 18th March 2013

Whenever a patient comes for a consultation for their laser eye surgery, they will invariably have lots of questions to ask. 

At Visualase your consultation is performed by the surgeon who would ultimately go on to perform your treatment if you are suitable and decide to proceed. 

This valuable time with your surgeon as part of your decision making process is surprisingly rare as some of the "high street" clinics you are seen only by an optometrist and an advisor, so make sure you make a list of questions to you want to ask to maximise the time you have with your doctor. 

A lot of your questions will be specific to you and your expected outcome, but it is a good idea to read our Laser Eye Surgery FAQ page beforehand.


All eye surgical procedures carry a level of risk including not obtaining the desired outcome, through to varying levels of visual loss. Your eye surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits, including ones specific to your circumstances, at the time of your pre-operative consultation.
