What Is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery corrects poor vision, giving you freedom from your glasses and contact lenses, so you can live your life to the fullest.

It’s a very simple procedure that takes anything from a matter of seconds to just a few minutes, depending upon the level of correction that’s required. It can correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.

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. Patients are amazed at how quickly they recover and the speed at which they can enjoy a life free from your glasses and contact lenses.

The improvements in your vision after laser eye surgery are truly remarkable.

How Is Laser Eye Surgery Performed?

We use technologically-advanced lasers to subtly reshape your cornea, transforming your vision and giving you the joy of clearer and sharper sight.

Step 1

The procedure begins with anaesthetic eye drops being applied, which quickly numbs the eye.

Step 2

The laser works in a matter of seconds, sending pulses of laser beams onto your cornea to reshape any imperfections.

Step 3

Most patients experience improved vision within a few days, though full recovery can take up to a week.

World Class Technology

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 state-of-the-art clinics and technologies. 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 Much Does Laser Eye Surgery Cost?


Every patient's eyes are unique and their laser eye surgery is too. A consultation with us is required first of all, so that we can determine the requirements for your treatment. That's why we provide you with a cost once you've had your consultation. However, technological advances in recent years have made this truly remarkable vision transformation affordable for almost everyone who is eligible for treatment. It's also worth bearing in mind that vision correction could be the most economical option for you over time, because it removes the ongoing costs of your glasses or contact lenses.
