Laser Eye Surgery
It will come as no surprise that Laser Eye Surgery is what most people will know Optilase for. The popular surgery is a Laser Eye Surgery is a way of permanently correcting your vision,and many people that undergo the surgery really can’t believe their luck, when post surgery, 20/15 or 20/20 vision becomes their norm.
When you visit Optilase to find out more about the treatment you’ll be assessed for your suitability first; and this depends on what your vision problem is. If you are deemed a suitable patient then you should be confident that the laser process itself is painless. Your eye is numbed using anaesthetic drops and you are offered diazepam to reduce anxiety and relax muscle tension. Depending on your treatment type, there can be some discomfort in the days after your treatment but this is generally temporary.
The surgery has many advantages, and one of those is that the surgery is short - taking around 7 minutes per eye. If you decide to go ahead you will need to be in the Clinic a little longer though - with preparation, treatment and aftercare, you will most likely be in the clinic for up to 2 hours on the day of your procedure. Taking it all into consideration, it’s a very short time to be in situ for any surgical procedure.
If you are in any doubt about whether or not you are suitable for the surgery, then help is only an appointment away. Optilase, who have carried out the surgery over 40,000 times in Ireland, offer a free consultation with one of their Optometrists for all potential patients, in order to determine if laser eye surgery is the right solution to your individual vision difficulties.

Reading Vision Correction
If you’ve been struggling with your near vision or find yourself squinting or having problems with fine print you may have a condition called Presbyopia. This condition means that as we get older we can lose the sharpness of our near vision, causing problems with clarity of fine print up close which can be very troublesome and debilitating. These symptoms might mean that everyday tasks like reading the newspaper or a text might become a little more difficult. If this is the case for you, then Reading Vision Correction might just be the answer.
And if you’re aged between 40 and 65, you’re in good company as this is the age group where most people experience this loss of crispness and clarity of vision, the technical explanation for this condition describes it as the loss or ability to focus on near objects as the eye ages, and the symptoms occur when the eye’s natural lens loses its flexibility and stiffens with age.
Optilase, Ireland’s No.1 Private Eye Clinic, has been treating patients with these eye iss
ues for years so it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about what you might be experiencing. Don’t delay - if you think you have any of these symptoms there’s no time like the present to find a solution to your problem.
Cataract problems are very common, especially as we get older. And, there’s no doubt about it, having a cataract can be very debilitating. Is now the time for you to think a little more about the advantages of cataract surgery?
Cataracts can appear when you are in your 40’s or 50’s, and usually start to affect your sight when you are in your 60’s, in fact cataracts are generally age-related. But they can also appear if you’ve had radiation treatments, diabetes, corticosteroid medications or any type of eye trauma.
So just what are cataracts? Essentially, they are cloudy patches in the lens, which is the transparent structure at the front of your eye. They can make your vision blurred or misty and can develop in one or both eyes, and often one eye can often be more affected than the other.
The good news is that you don’t need to live with the frustrating effects of Cataract. The procedure has a high success rate and the procedure to remove a cataract usually lasts only 30-45 minutes, with your vision being improved almost immediately. Could there be any greater satisfaction?
