14 Feb 2020

So you’ve bitten the bullet - no more contacts or glasses, next step is Laser Eye Surgery, great vision awaits! You’ve done your research too, you’re going to have your procedure carried out at Ireland’s No.1 Eye Surgery Professionals, Optilase.

But what will your Laser Eye Surgery journey look like? Here we run through the time that you’ll have with us at Optilase as you move towards greater vision.

Initial Assessment
Our initial assessment is all about finding out if you are a suitable candidate for Laser Eye Surgery. During this free assessment one of our Optometrists will carry out a series of eye examinations to find out your suitability, and then based on the results they will then explain in detail the processes involved and answer any questions you may have. The whole assessment just takes around one hour to complete, and then it’s onto the next step which is organising a pre-operative consultation with your surgeon.

Surgeon Consultation
At the consultation you will meet your Surgeon who will carry out a further eye exam and give the final approval required for surgery to go ahead. Then they’ll talk you through the technical aspects of your laser eye surgery and resolve any additional questions or queries.

Following this, our administration team will go through all of the necessary paperwork with you and set up payment details before confirming the final date and time of your procedure.

Your Laser Eye Surgery Procedure
Understandably, you might feel nervous on the day of your laser eye procedure but, at Optilase, you can rest assured you’re in the safe and capable care of our team, consisting of your consultant ophthalmic Surgeon, nurses, laser technicians and other professional support staff members. We’ve been carrying out Laser Eye Surgery on our customers since 2003, and we’re a highly recommended and experienced team, so there is no need to worry.

On the day of your surgery it’s a good idea to bring a close friend or family member with you for some support. Your laser eye treatment takes, on average, seven minutes per eye. It’s a very short procedure but one with a lasting, life-changing outcome.

Following the operation, you can relax while our nurses explain everything about the aftercare programme. They’ll give you a post-operative information pack containing eye drops and a schedule of when to take them. This will also include our 24 hour patient helpline number should you need any more information or help.

So happy with my results! There was a very quick turnaround between my consultation and the surgery and they were so flexible with appointment times. There is a lot of waiting around on the day of surgery but once started it’s a very quick process! Would highly recommend to anyone considering!

Very happy so far, was a thoroughly professional experience from the consultation to the surgery to post op checks. Was slightly delayed on day of surgery but all worth it in the end. Would definitely recommend to anyone choosing to go down the laser eye surgery route.

I had laser eye surgery one week ago. It was by far the best decision I’ve ever made. I was extremely nervous about getting the procedure done, so I did get a second opinion on it. The service optilase offers was by far superior than anything else offered by other places. They were always happy to answer questions, and even got my optometrist, Michaela, to call me back to answer questions I had. On the day of surgery, I was in and out within an hour - super quick and efficient. The surgeon was very reassuring as were the whole team. By that evening there was a noticeable improvement in my vision, and by the next morning I had better than 20/20 vision. The precision of my vision now is indescribable: everything is so much clearer and life is just better! By far the best decision I’ve ever made. Thank you Michaela & Team Optilase for all of your help. I would highly recommend to anyone.

The staff were so friendly and helpful and made the whole process very easy. I got emails and phonecalls with all the information I needed and more from when I booked my first consultation until after the surgery. I had LASIK, which was quick and comfortable. My surgeon was kind and thorough and he took the time to chat before and after the procedure. It was all just generally easier and more pleasant than I expected and I’m so glad to have had LASIK here

Best decision I’ve ever made! The clinic in Ely place was incredible- from start to finish you are so well looked after and all the staff are so incredibly nice! Anyone wondering whether they should do it , go for it!! I can’t believe I waited so long!!

The support from the stuff is incredible. They are always willing to help and answer any questions you may have, both pre and post procedure. I had the PRK procedure and although I am only just at the 2 week mark I can say that my recovery will take longer than I expected so that was slightly disappointing. Though I am aware recovery times differ, I was surprised because I was consistently told 2 weeks recovery time.

Had a brilliant experience at Optilase, 2 weeks from my consultation I was in to get my LASIK surgery after being told I was not eligible in other clinics. The staff were so friendly and reassuring I really felt in safe hands.
