Laser Eye Surgery vs Contact Lenses

19 Dec 2017


Laser Eye Surgery, due to recent advancements in technology, has become more affordable and accessible than ever before. The high long-term costs associated with the use of contact lenses and those all too common uncomfortable feelings of dry irritated eyes are some of the main motivations for people to choose laser eye surgery. To date, over 30 million people worldwide have received this treatment in order to achieve perfect eyesight.


It is true that initially contact lenses may seem like the more affordable option, however, in the long-term the cost-effectiveness speaks for itself. Contact lenses provide a temporary solution to eyesight related issues. Contact lenses will never provide you with the 20/20 vision you deserve. With laser eye surgery, you have a permanent*, cost-effective solution to all common eyesight complaints and have the added bonus of no longer needing monthly prescriptions or regular check-ups.


In total, the average person in Ireland will spend at least €400 per year on contact lenses. Obviously, over time this really adds up, on top of that you can only expect deterioration in the quality of your vision. Laser eye surgery provides you with a permanent*, cost-effective solution to common eyesight complaints. In one short, simple and painless procedure, you can restore your sight to absolute perfection with a once off payment starting from €795 per eye with Optilase, Irelands leading laser eye surgery clinic.


Optilase offer in-house finance plans to suit your needs. This means you can pay for your surgery over time with a payment plan that suits you. Optilase also provides a 15% discount for members of common Irish healthcare insurance providers such as Laya, Bupa and VHI, a 20% discount for GloHealth members and a 25% discount for Irish Life members.


Optilase also offers a best price guarantee, which means in the unlikely event you find a better deal then, we will match the price offered. You can also avail of 20% tax relief on the cost of treatment. In the unlikely event of eyesight regression, Optilase offer a corrective ‘enhancement’ treatment for free!
