Sometimes you just know that your eyesight has gotten worse, so when you get the annual or bi-annual reminder to call in for your eye test, it can fill you with dread.
A new glasses prescription can mean going through the whole rigmarole of being passed from pillar to post: there’s the person who makes the appointment, the optician, the sales assistant that advises you on hideous, over-priced frames, and the cashier that takes all your money. Odds are that you’re just another random person with bad eyesight.
Then of course, if you wear contact lenses as well as glasses, you have to do a whole separate appointment at an additional cost which can be extremely frustrating and once again, very impersonal.
It’s worth your while to book a free consultation with Optilase and see if you are a viable candidate for Laser Eye Surgery.
What eyesight problems does Laser Eye Surgery treat?
Laser Eye Surgery has been developed to correct three different types of refractive errors in the eye – myopia (shortsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
All three of the above refractive errors are linked to the shape of your cornea, which is partly responsible alongside the crystalline lens, for correctly bending or refracting light that enters the eye.
Laser Eye Surgery reshapes your cornea by removing tiny amounts of corneal tissue so that light rays bends correctly and focus directly on the retina so that vision becomes perfectly clear.

Laser Eye Surgery is a decision that will change your life completely and at Optilase we understand that it can be a bit daunting at first, so we make an extra effort to put each patient at ease before any procedure.
First there is a free consultation where you undergo a thorough eye examination and you will be encouraged to ask any questions you might have about Laser Eye Surgery. We want patients to be fully informed and aware of the ins-and-outs of the procedure.
On the day of Laser Eye Surgery itself, both eyes will be corrected using the latest, most advanced laser technology and in under half an hour you will never need your glasses again.
