Laser eye surgery changes the shape of the cornea which is the front surface of the eye to allow light to come into focus clearly on the retina without the use of glasses or contact lenses. Laser eye surgery is suitable for many people with both far sightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism which is an unequal curvature of the cornea.
Refractive laser eye surgery is a very safe and effective operation with excellent visual results in people whose eyes are healthy and whose prescription is treatable with the laser technology available to us today.
However, there are some people whose eyes are not suitable for surgery if their spectacle prescription is outside the parameters of the laser to treat. A complete eye exam performed by Dr McCreery will determine if you are a suitable candidate.
An eye examination is necessary to determine if you are suitable for refractive laser eye surgery. The examination includes vision testing and dilatation of the pupils with eye drops to adequately assess the retina (posterior part of the eye). The risks and benefits of refractive eye laser surgery will be discussed by Dr McCreery so that you can make an informed decision and have realistic expectations as to your visual outcome.
The most suitable treatment for you is determined by Dr McCreery after your eye exam. Dr McCreery performs the surgery and will see you at every postoperative visit.
When my husband had his cataract surgery last year, we always felt great confidence in Ms. McCreery and thanks to her and the professional team, Pat made a great recovery and has his quality of life back.
Lasik gave me such great results, I don’t know why I waited. I would recommend Blackrock Eye Care & Ms McCreery to anyone who is eligible for the surgery
For years my son suffered from his squint. When we finally sought treatment, we went to Blackrock Eye Care and the team were fantastic to Mark. He had his treatment and has never looked back, it was life-changing!
Our son Jack (15 months) had a turn in his eye and from the very first appointment with Ms McCreery, we had full confidence in her and of the quality of the treatment Jack would receive. We have had this confidence reinforced at every appointment. Ms McCreery is an absolute expert in working with children and diagnosed immediately the issue and identified a course of action for Jack which involved a surgical procedure. As parents, this was a daunting experience however Ms MCreery’s whole surgical and nursing team were incredible in their attention and thoughtfulness for us and this made all the difference to our experience. The surgery has been a huge success and we are delighted with the outcome. I cannot express enough my gratitude to Ms McCreery and her team and we would highly recommend her to any parent.
I recently had a Lasek procedure with Ms. Kathryn McCreery in December 2016 and the whole experience was very positive . I had a speedy appointment booked at short notice, I went in had my procedure which took no longer than 5 minutes per eye and it all felt as easy as if going for a dental check up. Instantly after the procedure I could see much clearer. A week passed and I had clearer vision than through my contact lenses, i just thought how simple the procedure was and how much relief and benefit it gave. I now have better than 20/20 vision and Keep thinking why didn't I do this before. I also however don't believe it would have been as successful and such a seamless process had I not been looked after by Ms. Kathryn McCreery and her staff who are heavily experienced in this field and would highly recommend her and Blackrock Clinic if you want a more improved quality of life.
I would highly recommend Ms. Kathryn McCreery & her team. They explained everything that I needed to know to make me feel comfortable prior & post laser surgery. My care on the day was fantastic as was the follow up care I have received the days and months after. My advice would be stop thinking about it & do it, you won't regret it, the best decision I have ever made, life changing
