3 reasons to seriously start considering Laser Eye Surgery

26 Mar 2021

Everybody, it seems, has a different notion of what self care is. Is it going for a walk, doing some exercise, going to the dentist, having a treat or getting a procedure done that could restore your sight to the best it’s ever been? Or could it be all of these? Of course it could. Self care itself as a term has been bandied around quite a bit over Lockdown, in fact we seem as a nation to be thinking about self care more than ever, or so conversation across media would suggest - and isn’t that’s a great thing?

If you were to give yourself one self care gift what would it be? Would it be the gift of better sight ? Optilase, Ireland’s No.1 Private Eye Clinic is a great place to start. In business for almost 20 years, they have helped thousands of customers across the island of Ireland to make a return to better sight with Laser Eye Surgery.

Interested but don’t know where to start? There are lots of reasons why the treatment has been a global success with over 30 million people having had the popular treatment. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why it might be a good self care decision for you, but first let’s take a look at the treatment itself.

Laser Eye Surgery - a quick synopsis
Laser Eye Surgery is a way of permanently correcting your vision. The procedure uses a special type of laser to gently reshape the surface of the eye. In order to correct certain vision problems such as, nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Many people that finally undergo the surgery really can’t believe their luck, when post surgery, 20/15 or 20/20 vision becomes their norm. The surgery is painless and short at around 7 minutes per eye, it will probably be one of the quickest life changing procedures you might ever have! Anybody over the age of 18 is a potential candidate for treatment and there is no upper age limit. In fact, there have been many patients in their 80’s and 90s who have been successfully treated. While it’s true that not everybody is suitable for Laser Eye Surgery, around 80% of consultations for the surgery are successful, which is very encouraging - there’s no time to delay, if you’re interested then it’s time to contact Optilase about your suitability, from a simple phone call you’ll have a good idea if you are eligible or not.

Why should you consider Laser Eye Surgery now?
Believe us when we say that there are so, so many reasons. But the main reason is that it can truly give you a better quality of life. Your sight is everything - If you’ve struggled with bad sight throughout your life like so many people that end up opting for Laser Eye Surgery, you’ll know what a struggle it can be sometimes.No more thinking about prescriptions, glasses or contact lenses, Laser gives you the chance to take the work out of your eyesight allowing you to wake up with clear vision, every day.

The treatment is painless, safe and permanent
The laser vision correction process itself is painless. Your eye is numbed using anaesthetic drops and you are offered diazepam to reduce anxiety and relax muscle tension. Depending on your treatment type, there can be some discomfort in the days after your treatment but this is generally temporary. Safety is understandably a huge concern for someone thinking of any type of surgery. The good news is that you have nothing to worry about, at Optilase, your safety is our No. 1 priority.

It’s never been more affordable
If the cost is stopping you from going ahead with the surgery, then it may be time for a rethink. Laser Eye Surgery has become more and more popular over the last number of years, due mainly to the life altering results. And because of this, as well as advances in technology, it has definitely become more and more affordable.

Many Optilase patients at the Clinic opt for interest free finance plans, and as well as this you can also avail of 20% tax relief on the cost of the treatment.

I got my laser eye surgery done on April 20th and couldn’t be happier. I had one hard day of recovery, followed by dry eyes for a small while. Sleeping with the protective goggles is the hardest part, but you’re helped throughout the process by experts. I couldn’t recommend this enough and Optilase were a dream to deal with. Even if you can’t afford the treatment now, you can always talk about a payment plan and get the vision you’ve always wanted.
