Indications

Refractive surgery indications

The patient's motivation to stop wearing optical correction is his own.

His approach to a possible surgery is a personal one, provided of course that a surgical intervention is possible in conditions of total safety. Indeed, the patient must first check for any absolute or relative counter-indication, and must be informed of the terms and conditions of the surgical procedure, as well as of its possible complications – which falls into the responsibilities of an ophthalmologist. Thus, a complete ophthalmologic examination of your eyes is a prerequisite. If anomalies are found during the review, they will need to be treated before the desired surgery can take place.

The surgery is intended primarily for patients who can no longer bear their usual optical correction, or who find themselves too dependent on it. Professional or personal reasons may also lead to consider a surgical solution.

It is important to raise the issue of professional aptitudes post-surgery. Indeed, while surgery enables the recovery of a normal or near normal visual acuity, it does not open up all the doors at the professional level, especially when it comes to security-related jobs. Regulations for each profession are continually modified. It is therefore imperative that you check with your administration in order to verify if refractive surgery is accepted (army, police, marine, fire brigade, SNCF, air transport, maritime transport, inland waterways, etc.).

Certain ocular and general pathologies can temporarily or indefinitely counter-indicate a surgical intervention. For example, pregnant women should delay any refractive surgery for a few months because the hormonal changes induced during pregnancy alter the usual criteria of corneal scarring (see table on counter-indications).
