Wearing glasses today doesn't have the same stigma attached to it as it did for many when we were growing up. Indeed the involvement of some of the world's leading fashion designers has made something of a trend to have the best looking spectacles, although these certainly do not come with a cheap price tag.

Beyond any fashionable aspect, wearing glasses can still be a tiring experience. Contact lenses do away with some of the drawbacks, but many people find them uncomfortable and yearn for the simplicity of better vision that is not in need of assistance.

The lenses in a pair of prescription glasses are made of standard shapes with an optical performance that is made to fit an average, as opposed to being specifically designed for you personally. Laser eye surgery is a procedure that can be made to a bespoke programme, which is designed around your individual requirements. It therefore has the potential for far greater results than those offered by glasses or lenses.

Technological advances

The vast improvements in technology and the use of lasers in many surgical procedures has led to improved results in areas which need the precision and delicacy that only laser implements can achieve. Optimax uses the all new IntraLase Femtosecond Laser, which is state of the art laser eye surgery equipment.

Having 18 of these lasers led Optimax to become the first company able to offer this technology nationwide, meaning that treatments can be taken at the convenience of the site closest to you rather than requiring a potentially long journey to a specific location. All suitable patients now have the opportunity to be treated with bladeless laser technology, which not only eliminates potential complications but means that more patients achieve 20:20 vision or better.

Only healthy eyes that are free from disease are operated on by corrective laser surgery and 95% of soft and 85% of hard contact lens wearers are suitable candidates for the procedures. 85% of glasses wearers are also usually suitable. Potential patients must also be over 18 years old. You can call Optimax’s Customer Services Team for your personal laser eye surgery suitability assessment.

Accurate diagnosis

Optimax use one of the most advanced diagnostic machines available, the Nidek OPD (Optical Path Difference) device, which measures the progress of 8,000 waves of light as they pass through different parts of the eye. When the light rays are reflected back from the eye into the Nidek OPD, it digitally analyses the differences in wave paths and assess how they would need to be corrected in order to result in perfect vision capability.

Optimax’s duty of care to their clients doesn't stop after treatment and immediate recovery. The company offers all laser patients aftercare and remedial treatment for as long as it is needed – totally free of charge, even after you have been discharged with a satisfactory result. Personal aftercare is included as part of the costs of treatment and the Optimax dedicated aftercare advice line is available for patients to call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, giving complete peace of mind.
