Held consultant post in a major university hospital in the UK
Dr Arbabi was was Consult Ophthalmologist and the Lead for Refractive Services at The Royal Liverpool University Hospital which is one of the UK’s largest tertiary referral centre.
This is the most popular vision correction surgery World-wide with very fast visual recovery. We use the advanced Femtosecond laser to create the flap unlike some other centres that use traditional microkeratome blade.
‘No touch’ TransPRK
This is an advanced modification of the traditional PRK/LASEK. Here the eye is not touched with any instrument. The laser removes the epithelium without suction, flap, blade or alcohol.
Still a very effective and safe treatment but due to pain and slow recovery Dr Arbabi only uses this if you are not good candidate for other lasers.
