Laser eye surgery is one of the most frequently performed voluntary surgical procedures in the UK, so it's no surprise that there are plenty of providers offering laser eye treatment in London.
With around eight million people living there, and a reputation as one of the world’s most pioneering medical cities, the wealth of choice is incredible. However, not every laser eye surgery provider offers the same level of treatment and care.
When it comes to the health of your eyes, you can’t afford to take any risks. To choose the best laser eye surgery provider for your needs, you should consider a wide range of factors, including:
- The training and experience of the provider's laser eye surgeons - NHS training is a good indication of quality
- The standard of the facilities and equipment in the provider's hospitals and clinics
- Whether they offer the latest treatment methods, such as ReLEx SMILE
- What level of aftercare they provide
- Whether they are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
- What their customers say about them - for example, on TrustPilot
- Whether the hospital is easy to get to - as you won't be able to drive after having laser eye surgery
At Optegra, we offer two dedicated eye hospitals in London which tick all of these boxes. Read on below to find out all about them.
Optegra's Central London Eye Hospital
Here at Optegra, we are the UK’s most trusted eye specialist according to patient reviews on TrustPilot
. At our flagship eye hospital
in London's Harley Street district (an area renowned as an international centre of medical excellence), we offer an exceptional standard of treatment and care.
Our central London eye hospital is located in one of the beautiful buildings bordering Harley Street, and it's easy to access by public transport. We offer the full spectrum of eye treatments, so whether you’re looking for laser eye surgery
, lens replacement
or cataract surgery
, you can find exactly the right treatment for you. Our aim is to provide world class, innovative eye care, teamed with impeccable customer service and superior surroundings.
All of our surgeons are not only NHS trained but also Fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists or equivalent organisations, so you can rest assured that you're in the very best hands. As well as a team of leading consultants, we have also invested £13m into the hospital in the last couple of years, so you can expect all of our facilities and equipment to be of the highest possible standard.
Along with more traditional laser eye treatments such as LASIK
, our central London hospital can also provide ReLEx SMILE, the newest and most innovative laser eye surgery available. In addition, we provide treatments for a wide range of other visual problems including glaucoma and cataracts, as well as eyelid surgery for both cosmetic and medical reasons.
From meeting your surgeon before your operation, to receiving the best standards of care, we believe in tailoring our service to individual patients and meeting their specific needs. And as you would expect, all of Optegra's eye hospitals are regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
