Frequently Asked Questions for Lens Surgery

From cataract treatment to lens replacement and ICL procedures, you likely have many questions about what lens surgery at Ultralase is like. Here are a couple of the most commonly asked questions we get from patients:

Like laser eye surgery, we can perform bilateral procedures (both eyes treated on the same day, one after the other) for lens surgery. However, this will need to be discussed with your treating surgeon. If you prefer, you can also have your eyes treated separately a week apart, diary dependent.
The procedures for cataract removal, RLE or ICL surgery are not painful. Like with our laser surgery treatments, we use local anaesthetic to ensure you do not feel anything. Some patients report feeling a slight pressure on their eye during lens surgery, but others say they don’t feel anything at all.
You will not need to stay overnight for any vision correction procedures at Ultralase, however you will need to be in the area for your aftercare appointment the following day. For this reason, unless you can easily travel to the clinic from your home, it would be best to stay in accommodation near the clinic.
At Ultralase, we have fixed prices for all of our lens surgery procedures, regardless of your prescription.
