Laser eye surgery is an innovative process to correct eyesight problems such as short sight, long sight and astigmatism, so you can see more clearly without the need for glasses or contact lenses. Laser eye treatments work by using a laser to reshape the cornea of the eye, improving your ability to focus.
At Optegra, we provide laser eye treatments for a number of eyesight problems, including short sight, long sight, wavefront abnormalities and astigmatism. We use innovative surgery techniques, including LASIK, LASEK and SMILE surgery method
We offer a standard price for laser eye surgery, no matter what your specific prescription is, so you can get a clear idea of how much it’s going to cost. Payments can be made on a monthly basis, to spread the cost over 12, 24 or 48 months. We also offer a free, no obligation consultation so you can speak to one of our expert laser eye surgeons and decide whether surgery is right for you.
To determine whether laser eye surgery can work for you, you’ll need to have a free consultation with one of our expert laser eye surgeons, who will carry out a detailed assessment of your needs. You may not be able to have laser eye surgery if you need very strong glasses, or have certain medical conditions. For full details, please click on the link above.

LASIK is the most popular and well-known type of laser eye surgery, and is performed for people with issues such as short sight, long sight, astigmatism and wavefront abnormalities. Click the link above to learn more about LASIK eye surgery and whether it could be right for you.
LASEK is a type of laser eye surgery which is suitable for people with less serious eye focusing problems. LASEK eye surgery can also be a good option for patients who are unable to have LASIK surgery, for instance if they have thin corneas or dry eyes.
SMILE is a minimally invasive form of keyhole laser eye surgery, which is able to correct short sightedness and astigmatism without the need for a flap to be made in the cornea. SMILE eye surgery is particularly useful for treating patients with very high prescriptions, dry eyes or thin corneas.
The risks of laser eye surgery are very small, and your consultant will discuss them with you in depth as part of the consultation process. For an overview of the potential risks to be aware of, click on the link above.
