Laser eye surgery: 20/20 vision or better... or your money back§
a. This promotion is available only to people receiving iDesign iLASIK treatment with the aim of achieving best distance vision for both eyes individually. Please see the section ‘patient consent’ later in the document to confirm whether you are receiving this treatment with the aim of best distance vision in each eye.
b. Monovision treatments to improve near vision do not meet the terms of this promotion.

c. If you receive this treatment and you do not achieve 20/20 (uncorrected) vision, we will refund to you the amount you have paid for your initial iDesign iLASIK treatment.

d. If you took out a loan, arranged by us, to pay for your treatment, we will cancel your loan agreement and refund all repayments you have made under it (including any interest you have paid under the agreement).

e. If you entered into another finance agreement to pay for your treatment, please remember that you are responsible for making payments to the provider of the loan or finance, even if we give you a refund. We will not refund any interest you have paid on, or in relation to, that loan or finance.

f. You will have to complete an application process to claim your refund. The application process will have certain timescales that you must meet, and we will tell you these if you want to apply for a refund. In any case, you must apply for a refund within 15 months of your initial iDesign iLASIK treatment.

g. For the purposes of this promotion, ‘20/20’ vision does not mean perfect eyesight. It means 20/20 or better binocular distance vision, when assessed with both eyes open and using a standard calibrated ophthalmic backlit eye chart with letters arranged by size, in a room lit to such a standard as is reasonably necessary to properly carry out an eye test. The eye test must be carried out at least 12 months after your initial iDesign iLASIK treatment, or (if you have an enhancement treatment) at least three months after the enhancement treatment. If you do not understand the information in this section, please let us know. Your level of vision under this promotion can only be confirmed at an Optical Express clinic by an Optical Express clinician.

h. This promotion is only available if Page 3 we confirm at your pre-treatment consultation that you are capable of achieving 20/20 vision in each eye. Your best corrected vision with glasses before your treatment must be 20/20 (6/6) or better in each eye in order for you to qualify for this promotion. We will confirm whether you are eligible for this promotion in your informed consent document.

i. You are not entitled to a refund under this promotion if you do not achieve 20/20 vision due to:

  1. causes or conditions not intended to be dealt with as part of your treatment or which are not related to your treatment, such as amblyopia, glaucoma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, eye muscle imbalances, cataracts, vitreous opacities (floaters), or other conditions of the retina;
  2. you failing to follow any medication or aftercare regime or routine we recommended;
  3. you deciding not to have any additional treatment we have recommended;
  4. someone other than us providing treatment, medication or aftercare relating to your vision or eyes after your surgery; or
  5. you not being truthful or honest or co-operating with us when we have tried to treat you, provide aftercare to you or confirm the condition of your vision or your lack of 20/20 vision at any of our premises.

j. Please note that we will not accept the results of eye examination vision tests carried out by others when deciding whether you are entitled to a refund – we will only accept vision tests which we have carried out at our premises.
