Taking the life changing decision to undergo laser eye surgery is a momentous decision in anyone’s life. Undoubtedly, opting for laser eye surgery is one of the biggest and most important decisions you will ever make.
With that said, it is understandable why people might be slightly nervous and apprehensive in the lead up to their laser eye surgery treatment.
At Optilase, we want to put your mind at ease and equip you with confidence going into your treatment.
Understanding the facts
Rest assured, a little nervous tension and a little apprehension is all perfectly normal. When it comes to laser eye surgery, there is absolutely nothing to fear.
More than 30 million people around the world have had laser eye surgery to date and as a result, it is the safest vision improvement procedure available globally.
The risk of something going noticeably wrong during laser eye surgery is miniscule; in fact, the complication rate is in the region of 1%, or 1 in every 1000 laser eye surgery procedures. Even then, most complications that occur can be easily rectified, which ultimately reduces the risk even further.
Focus on the Benefits of laser eye surgery!
As alluded to earlier, laser eye surgery is truly life changing. Imagine, no more glasses (or the fear of losing them!) no more contact lenses (or the horrible discomfort you can feel when you forget to take them out!).
When it comes to the pain rating of laser eye surgery, the procedure is painless because the eye is numbed using anesthetic drops. There may be some slight discomfort following the surgery, but this lasts only a few days, after which you are right as rain and ready to enjoy your whole new world.

Absolutely amazing from the consultation with Aisling in at Athlone to everyone in Ely Place and my surgeon Tom!! Delighted to have my 20/20 free and to be glasses and contacts free!!! Thank you all so much again!!!
Amazing treatment, such friendly and bubbly staff helped take any nerves out of the day, highly recommend 😁
From start to finish, from consultation to surgery and now post surgery, Optilase have been fantastic! Surgery has been life changing! Recommending to everyone!
So happy with my results! There was a very quick turnaround between my consultation and the surgery and they were so flexible with appointment times. There is a lot of waiting around on the day of surgery but once started it’s a very quick process! Would highly recommend to anyone considering!
Very happy so far, was a thoroughly professional experience from the consultation to the surgery to post op checks. Was slightly delayed on day of surgery but all worth it in the end. Would definitely recommend to anyone choosing to go down the laser eye surgery route.
I had laser eye surgery one week ago. It was by far the best decision I’ve ever made. I was extremely nervous about getting the procedure done, so I did get a second opinion on it. The service optilase offers was by far superior than anything else offered by other places. They were always happy to answer questions, and even got my optometrist, Michaela, to call me back to answer questions I had. On the day of surgery, I was in and out within an hour - super quick and efficient. The surgeon was very reassuring as were the whole team. By that evening there was a noticeable improvement in my vision, and by the next morning I had better than 20/20 vision. The precision of my vision now is indescribable: everything is so much clearer and life is just better! By far the best decision I’ve ever made. Thank you Michaela & Team Optilase for all of your help. I would highly recommend to anyone.
The staff were so friendly and helpful and made the whole process very easy. I got emails and phonecalls with all the information I needed and more from when I booked my first consultation until after the surgery. I had LASIK, which was quick and comfortable. My surgeon was kind and thorough and he took the time to chat before and after the procedure. It was all just generally easier and more pleasant than I expected and I’m so glad to have had LASIK here
Absolutely delighted with result, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. They keep you very calm before and after procedure
Best decision I’ve ever made! The clinic in Ely place was incredible- from start to finish you are so well looked after and all the staff are so incredibly nice! Anyone wondering whether they should do it , go for it!! I can’t believe I waited so long!!
The support from the stuff is incredible. They are always willing to help and answer any questions you may have, both pre and post procedure. I had the PRK procedure and although I am only just at the 2 week mark I can say that my recovery will take longer than I expected so that was slightly disappointing. Though I am aware recovery times differ, I was surprised because I was consistently told 2 weeks recovery time.
Amazing staff, couldn’t recommend enough.
Had a brilliant experience at Optilase, 2 weeks from my consultation I was in to get my LASIK surgery after being told I was not eligible in other clinics. The staff were so friendly and reassuring I really felt in safe hands.
