Laser eye surgery corrects poor vision, giving you freedom from glasses and contact lenses, so you can live your life to the full.
It’s a simple procedure that takes anything from a matter of seconds to just a few minutes, depending upon the level of correction that’s required, but you’ll notice an improvement in your vision after laser eye surgery which is truly remarkable.
A cool beam advanced laser makes subtle adjustments to the shape of the surface of your eye (the cornea), correcting its tiny imperfections and making your vision clearer and sharper. The vast majority of our patients are amazed at how quickly they recover and the speed at which they can enjoy a life free from glasses and contact lenses.
It’s a wonderful world. We can help you see it that way.
Yes, the two best-known and most popular types of laser eye surgery are LASIK and LASEK (also referred to as PRK). Both types can be enhanced by iDesign, a highly advanced innovation which takes over 1,200 measurements from your eye to create a personalised ‘map’. This allows your treatment to be tailored specifically to you to achieve the best results.
Our expert Surgeons use the same technology that led NASA to approve laser eye surgery for its astronauts. More than £400 million has been invested in state of the art clinics and technologies. We use advanced femtosecond and excimer lasers, which are incredibly precise and accurate, so that we can provide our patients with their very best results.
From children’s first eye tests to teenagers’ glasses, from contact lenses to prescription sunglasses and from laser eye surgery and lens replacement in later life, we’ve looked after the health of our patients and their families’ eyes for over 25 years. Not only do we provide the best in clinical care, but we have optical solutions for all patients too.
We’ve never stood still. Since we opened our first optical practice in 1991, over £400 million has been invested in technology, giving our clinicians access to the most advanced methods of vision correction and providing the best visual results for our patients.
At Optical Express, you’ll find that we provide exceptional clinical expertise, outstanding surgical outcomes and a complete aftercare programme. We, quite simply, want to bring a new sense of joy into your life.
*In a study of 190,231 Optical Express patients with the most common prescriptions we treat (excluding those with presbyopia and emmetropia) 99.2% achieved 20|20 vision or better following treatment.
†Price dependent on patient’s prescription and treatment type, determined at consultation. From 01/01/2015 to 20/09/2016, 23.4% of individual eyes assessed at consultation had a prescription which qualified for surgery at this price point.
