Unless you wear glasses or contacts, you’ll never know how limiting they can be. Contacts are hard to put in and wearing them long-term is expensive and high-maintenance.
Glasses fog up; you can’t wear them for sports or exercise and they tend to go missing when you need them most.
People who suffer from a refractive error, an issue with the shape of their corneas that means they need corrective eyewear to see, are constantly restricted in what they can do, and when.
LASIK (Laser-in-situ-Keratomileusis) at Optilase Laser Eye Clinics is a hugely popular choice for those who are tired of being tied to their corrective eyewear. It’s become the treatment of choice for those with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism, as it offers those blighted by poor vision a permanent solution to prescription lenses.
Using highly sophisticated laser technology, LASIK reshapes the cornea at the front of the eye to allow future incoming light to focus directly onto the retina, allowing for clear vision at any distance.
The first step to any Laser Eye Surgery procedure is to schedule a free, no obligation consultation at any Optilase clinic across the country to find out if you are a candidate for laser eye surgery – not everybody is, but it won’t cost you anything to find out.
During this consultation process you will be required to complete an in-depth patient questionnaire and undergo an eye test in which measurements of each eye and their individual refractive error are recorded.
There are clinics in Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Galway, Waterford, Athlone, Newry, Belfast and Derry, so you can make an appointment at the clinic most convenient for you to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for LASIK or any other Laser Eye Surgery procedure.
