As Ireland’s No.1 Private Eye Surgery Clinic since 2003, we’ve had thousands of customers through our doors who opt for Laser Eye Surgery - meaning that whatever your question on the procedure, we’re almost certain we’ve got the answer. If you’re considering the procedure, a quick overview of some popular questions might help, here are some of the questions that our team are asked across our Clinic network.
How will I know if I am suitable for Laser Eye Surgery?
In short, it’s impossible to really know without visiting us for an initial assessment. Generally though there are a number of factors that may make you unsuitable for laser vision correction - include prescriptions stronger than -10 or +5, or having a squint or a lazy eye. For women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is necessary to wait until 6 months before starting your treatment.
Is it permanent?
Yes, long term follow up studies indicate that after the healing process is complete, eyesight remains stable. Some patients may develop the need for reading glasses as they age but this happens to most adults regardless of whether they get laser vision correction.
How long does the treatment take?
The laser vision correction itself takes around 7 minutes per eye. Between preparation, treatment and aftercare, you should expect to stay in the clinic for up to 2 hours on the day of your procedure.
What complications can occur?
There are some risks involved in laser vision correction, you will be made aware of these risks during your initial free assessment as well as your pre-operative consultation. The most common side effects of laser vision correction include dry-eye, night-time glare, halo effect and regression.
I’m interested in finding out more - what happens at my initial assessment?
Your journey with Optilase begins when you attend your initial assessment. One of our Laser Optometrists will meet with you and spend the next hour thoroughly examining and testing your eyes. You will find out if you are a suitable candidate for laser vision correction, what treatment will be best for your eyes, and how much exactly it will cost. It’s important to note that you will not be able to drive after your assessment for at least 6-8 hours.

Attended the clinic today and couldn't be happier with the staff and how pleasant they were. Delighted that I got a consultation
Great experience and great after care. Had 2020 vision within 24 hours with very minimal pain.
Amazing experience , amazing staff, amazing eye sight . I had lens replacement 3 months ago and would highly recommend.
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.
