Preparing You For Your Big Day
On your day of treatment you're probably going to experience a mixture of nerves, apprehension and hopefully excitement.
But then again why wouldn't you? After all, you are about to undergo life changing surgery.
You're VIP Approved Provider and their team will help you settle into the clinic your being treated at and will take your through nthe steps of your procedure so you know what to expect.
Don't worry if you're nervous - this is perfectly normal. Your team will be experts at calming any nerves you may experience and naturally the Surgeon will be on hand to build your confidence and answer any final questions you may have.
The process will be different for preparing for the different treatments and naturally this will be tailored to fit your personalised treatment plan and the procedure you've elected to undergo.
Most treatments and procedures are carried out relatively quikcly, but as a rule of thumb we recommend you allow for half a day for your treatment.
Points To Remember
Although each treatment and the preparation for them is unique, there are some general things to do in preperation for the day of most elected treatments.
Wear loose and comfortable clothes
Refrain from using aftershaves, perfumes and deoderants
Refrain from using eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, creams and foundations
Your VIP Clinician will advise if there any other measures which should be taken to facilitate your treatment as part of your personalised treatment plan.
Immediately after your tretament it will not be possible for you to drive home, so make some arrangements for a lift from a friend or book some appropriate transport.
Your eyes may be a little light sensitive for a short time immediately after your treatment and we recommend you brind some sunglasses with you to reduce discomfort from any bright lights.
It's Time For Treatment
Get comfortbale, relax and get ready to embark on a life changing moment.
Your VIP Surgery Team will begin your treatment when you are comfortable, lying down and feel ready for the treatment to begin .
During the procedure your Surgeon will explain what is happening and what to expect so there are no surprises and you'll be confident of what is happening around you and how your treatment is progressing.
Don't worry if you happen to move slightly, if you blink, or cough because the highly advanced techniques and equipment being used are calibrated to react and adapt to even the most minute movement.
Quick and painless treatments.
All treatments are needlessly, quick and pain free - with the use of anesthetic drops to numb the eyes. This won't hurt in the slightest but may produce an odd feeling of sensation. The drops act very quickly and allows your procedure to start with little delay.
Within a short time your procedure will be over and you will be encouraged to get up when you're able and feel ready. With many of our treatments achieveing immediate results, you will be able to see a difference very quickly. You may experience a little hazing at first, but becuase your eyes are very quick to heal the recovery process will already be going on.
As soon as you feel ready you're free to leave the clinic and go home - it's that simple.
The VIP Network of specially trained local and independent Opticians will help you to make an informed decision.
At VIP we will like to give our patients a clear picture of what to expect on the day of their elected treatment.
