Solving your short sightedness

21 May 2014

If you have been squinting or straining to see things in the distance clearly, it is time to get your eyesight checked at Optilase and explore the world of laser vision correction.


For long-term glasses wearers when you struggle to see clearly even when wearing your favourite pair of specs, it can be a signal that your prescription has yet again increased.


This can only mean one thing – new glasses to add to your already impressive collection that you have acquired over the years.


When you add it up, eye test + lenses + frames + additional extras, you can soon find yourself out of pocket to the tune of hundreds of Euros or more because you are unlucky enough to have poor eyesight.


If you’ve had enough of lenses, you can chose to trade in your glasses for good and enjoy the lifelong benefits that Laser Eye Surgery at Optilase offers those with short sightedness.

What exactly is short sightedness?

Myopia or short sightedness is one of the most common eyesight problems in Ireland.


When a person is unable to see objects in the distance clearly, it is causes by a refractive error in the eye.


A refractive error relates to how light is changed in the eye to allow a person to see.


In order to see clearly, light must land directly on the retina but those with short sightedness often have a cornea that is too steep or an eyeball that is too long.


Either of these scenarios is the refractive error which causes incoming light being focused in front of on the retina.

Correcting your short sightedness at Optilase

Short sightedness can vary from being very mild to moderate with a person’s prescription usually increasing with age until the condition eventually stabilizes.


Laser Eye Surgery at Optilase can correct mild to moderate levels of short sightedness.


During your free consultation at any Optilase clinic, you will undergo a thorough eye exam and questionnaire to ensure that you are eligible for Laser Eye Surgery.


The procedure itself sees the cornea being permanently reshaped so that light in the eye can land directly on the retina.


Results are instant with patients enjoying perfect vision immediately after the procedure has taken place.

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.
