If you’ve ever had a conversation with a friend who’s had Eye Surgery, then the chances are that you might have heard them say one of these statements;
I lost my ability to see things up close, and became completely reliant on reading glasses.
Delighted that I made the decision to have laser eye surgery. I’m very happy with the results and have had no pain or discomfort.
Having laser eye surgery was the best decision I ever made.

First hand experience
Of course, as with any treatment, there’s nothing quite like first hand experience. Model agent and household personality, Celia Holman Lee came to Optilase for her Reading Vision Correction, a decision she cites as one of the best she’s ever made. “I had lost my ability to see things up close, and became completely reliant on reading glasses. It really drove me nuts. I couldn’t read my phone, no matter how big the font was; I even had trouble putting on eye makeup using a magnifying mirror – sometimes I had to try to do it wearing the glasses.
Celia was initially apprehensive about the surgery, like many people are but was truly delighted to find out that the team in Optilase were candid and reassuring about the surgery and results. How did Celia feel during the treatment? ‘I felt nothing other than a slight pressure, and it’s so quick. There’s no bandages or anything – the only thing was I couldn’t wear eye makeup for 10 days after surgery, so I went to events anyhow and explained I’d just had Laser Eye surgery. People were fascinated! It’s such a clever procedure, and now I can read my iPad, texts, computer, the newspaper, apps on the phone – everything. This tiny little thing in my eye has made a massive difference in my life.’
Margaret Kelly, was so delighted with the results of her Eye Surgery that the friends who had initially tried to put her off getting the surgery, had asked for the Optilase contact details to make their own appointment! ‘I’ve always hated wearing glasses. They just didn’t suit me so I always had a problem with wearing them. The day before the procedure I was having coffee with my friends and they made me feel nervous. Later on I went home and I rang Optilase and said I’m actually having second thoughts, and third and fourth thoughts! No matter how many questions I had to ask them, they answered them and they took their time about it, and made me at ease straight away. The same friends who put me off initially for going for this procedure are now asking me about it. They watch me to see if I wear my glasses – and I don’t wear them, and it’s great!’
Time to create your own great eye care experience
If you’ve ever dreamed of a life without glasses or contacts, and perfect vision to boot then chances are, it’s time for you to call Optilase. But what happens when you call Ireland’s No.1 provider of Private eyecare - and how does your journey to better sight begin? We take you through what happens next.
Having jitters or just want to get more information before you bite the bullet? That’s no problem, an informed decision is always the best one to make!
A good way to alleviate any pre-surgery jitters is always to determine what part of the journey makes you feel the most anxious, something that you can discuss when you come to Optilase for your free consultation - have your list of questions at the ready too!
But what exactly happens at your free consultation? Well first of all it’s a chance for you to address any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure, but also a great chance for you to get to know the team who will be looking after you and get a little more comfortable as you learn more about the process. A Laser Optometrist will carry out a series of eye examinations to determine your suitability, and then will explain in detail the processes involved, answering any questions you may have. The whole assessment takes about one hour to complete.
The team at Optilase want every patient to feel prepared and knowledgeable about their procedure after the consultation, but don’t worry if you have any further questions you can have a chat with your surgeon at the next meeting which is the pre-operative consultation.
No matter what type of eye surgery you are going for, it’s important to let your eyes settle for up to a month after surgery. For most patients, it takes one or two days for their new improved vision to settle. However, Optilase do advise you to rest your eyes properly for the month following surgery. Good aftercare is vital but don’t worry, the Optilase medical team will explain everything about their comprehensive aftercare programme.
The Optilase Lifetime Care Guarantee
Would a little reassurance make any difference to how you’re feeling? We thought so and because of this, Optilase offers a Lifetime Care Guarantee - which is something that money simply can’t buy. So what exactly is the Lifetime Care Guarantee? Well it’s peace of mind, and continuous care all rolled into one. Optilase are delighted to offer a Lifetime Care Guarantee as part of their ongoing commitment to all patients, the guarantee provides you with a thorough aftercare programme for the 12 months following your procedure. Depending on your individual case, this may contain an average of four post-operative appointments to attend throughout the year.
After the first year of check-ups, you’ll be discharged from our aftercare programme, but don’t worry – Optilase’s doors are always open if you’re ever unsure of anything or have any questions regarding your treatment.
