4 questions you should ask at your free laser eye surgery consultation

When you visit Optical Express for a free laser eye consultation, you’ll meet with one of our expert optometrists. As well as performing a thorough examination on your eyes using our state of the art technology, they’re also there to answer any questions you may have about your treatment.

Here are 4 questions you should definitely ask at your laser eye surgery consultation:

How does laser eye surgery correct my vision?

A cool beam advanced laser makes subtle adjustments to the shape of the surface of your eye (the cornea), correcting its tiny imperfections and making your vision clearer and sharper.

Our expert surgeons use the same technology that led NASA to approve laser eye surgery for its astronauts. More than £400 million has been invested in our clinics and state-of-the-art technology. We use advanced femtosecond and excimer lasers, which are incredibly precise and accurate, so that we can provide our patients with their very best results.

How quickly will I see results?

Most patients experience improved vision within a few days, though full recovery can take up to two weeks. It depends upon a range of factors, including the speed at which you naturally heal.

Who will carry out the treatment? Can I find out more about them?

At Optical Express, we understand how important it is for our patients to build a relationship with and to trust their surgeon. As our expert surgeons have completed thousands of treatments over the course of their careers to become leaders in their field, you can feel confident about your procedure. For your peace of mind, we've also created detailed surgeon profiles, which allow you to find out more about your surgeon and their relevant experience. You can ask about this at your consultation or visit our Surgeon Profile page.

How much does treatment cost?

Laser eye surgery has become increasingly affordable, thanks to advancements in technology. Our prices start from just £595 per eye†. We offer finance, with options to help spread the cost. You will be provided with the exact cost of treatment on the day of your consultation.

†Price dependent on patient’s prescription and treatment type, determined at consultation.
