Laser Eye Surgery continues to be one of the most popular elective surgeries in the world and right here in Ireland, more and more people are opening their eyes to the lifelong benefits of the procedure.
While skeptics may consider Laser Eye Surgery a purely cosmetic course of action to avoid wearing corrective lenses, it is in fact a purposeful procedure that improves eye function and is completely life changing.
The entire procedure takes under half an hour and patients leave with 20/20 vision, never having to depend on glasses or contact lenses again.
Like any procedure, especially one that involves your sight, pro’s and con’s need to be considered to make sure that Laser Eye Surgery is right for you.
One of the most important questions you must ask yourself is: how badly do you want to get rid of your glasses or contacts?
Laser Eye Surgery is a permanent procedure that alters the shape of your cornea. It involves removing tiny amounts of tissue using an Excimer Laser, which cannot be reversed once done.
One of the most common worries patients have relates to the notion of a laser beam going near their eye.
But, it is important to be open-minded when it comes to the science behind Laser Eye Surgery, because advances in technology mean that the procedure is safer than ever nowadays.
The Excimer Laser used during Laser Eye Surgery sends short pulses of light energy via a cool, 193nm laser beam to remove minute amounts of tissue from the cornea in order to produce a smooth, spherical surface.
No heat is generated by the laser and the back of the eye is unaffected, which means you don’t have to worry that the laser will burn your eyes.
Before you undergo Laser Eye Surgery, there of course are stringent conditions and criteria in place to maximize patient safety and visual outcome.

Hello Million thanks for optilase clinic You change my life😍😍😍 After my surgery I start see next day!!!
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.
