How to choose a laser eye clinic

If you have short sight, long sight astigmatism, or need reading glasses you may be considering laser surgery. If so, choosing the right clinic and surgeon for you will be one of the most important decisions that you can make.

How to choose a laser eye clinic
Initially you will need to attend a consultation to find out whether you are a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. When choosing the clinics to attend the best advice is to do your research! Make sure that you choose a clinic that has a good reputation for patient satisfaction, and a surgeon who is experienced and delivers exceptional results. Once you have narrowed your search, check the clinics reviews and if you can try to speak to other patients who have been treated there. Another great tool is the CQC’s (Care Quality Commission) website. They will have reports on all the clinics in the UK.

Your consultation is not only to find out whether you are suitable, it is for you to see if is a place you feel comfortable in. Here is a short checklist to help once you are there:

Cleanliness: Does the clinic appear clean? A reputable clinic will be clean, tidy and hygienic.

Technology: What technology do they use? Bladeless and Wavefront treatments should come as standard in your package, and they should use the most up to date combination of lasers.

Staff: From the receptionist to your surgeon, the demeanour of the staff speaks volumes. Look for clinics where the staff are professional, friendly, caring, and above all listen to your individual needs and concerns.

Patient Satisfaction: What are the success rates? What are the complication and enhancement rates? Does the clinic offer a lifetime care guarantee for its distance corrections?

Remember not all clinics, surgeons and laser platforms are equal, and your eyes are priceless. Choose a clinic that is reputable, with an excellent safety record that is focussed on quality of care rather than number of sales.
