What to expect from the procedure
Before your surgery, you’ll be given a local anaesthetic to numb your eye so you don’t feel any pain.
Your surgeon will use the latest ‘no-stitch’ surgical techniques to make tiny incisions in the white of your eye. This type of surgery means your eye will heal faster, and you should feel virtually no irritation after surgery.
Your eye may also be treated with steroids, gas, laser or freezing treatments, depending on the exact situation.
After surgery, you should be able to go home almost straight away, and you can usually resume normal, non-strenuous activities the day after. You’ll need to wear a patch on your eye until the following morning, and we will give you eye drops and antibiotics to use for up to four weeks after surgery.
