Are their any deals or vouchers that anybody knows of for Optical Express. I am looking into Laser Eye Surgery and had 2 consultations, first clinic was Ultralase with a total fee off - £4000 and second consultation was with Optical Express for £2300 with a 10% discount.

Does anybody know if i could get this cheaper? thanks

I had laser eye surgery with Optimax years ago, their prices start at only £395 per eye which is exactly what I paid way back when! They do interest free payments and also are part of the Tesco Clubcard scheme so you can use your vouchers to pay towards the cost. :thumbsup:

i paid 495 per eye + 60 consultation fee with optimax 7 years ago, excellent value. it used to be if someone recommended you you both got a money off/back, but as i say it was 7 years ago.
one thing if you decide to go for it, and i would definately recommend it, don't beleive the hype entirely, its painful the first night after you get it done and you need to have someone with you because unless you are a masochist you will take every painkiller/sleeping pill they give you and it knocks you out. Hope you get a deal and best of luck.:)

there used to be someone on fleabay offering reduced prices in one of those clinic groups at reduced price for hard to fill dates. may be worth checking it out.

if you had to do it again, would you have one or both eyes done at the time. i really only need the one done, and have thought of it often but just dont know what to do about it. am not great with pain as it is.

I had one eye done then went back a couple of months later for the other, that was the only option at the time I think I was one of the very early people to have laser eye surgery, my sister had hers done quite a few years later by Ultralase and she had both done at the same time, we both managed perfectly well and in retrospect I would have both done together. It gets it all over at once and to tell the truth I didn't find it painful at all, I took painkillers as instructed in regular doses so maybe I just didn't get the chance to feel the pain! I did feel like my eyes were gritty and was quite tired but that may have been down to the painkillers. My sister had a pretty terrible prescription and ended up have to go back and have hers lasered a second time in order not to wear glasses so it can't have been that bad!

On the whole I would thoroughly recommend it, I have not looked back, I used to wear glasses all the time, I have had several years where I didn't need anything, now I have reading glasses which as I am in my forties I would probably have needed anyway, my hubby has perfect distance vision but he also has reading glasses. Optimax did explain that I would probably need reading glasses later on before I went through the surgery, the only side effect I have experienced is dry eyes, my sister doesnt have this as by the time she had hers lasered they were recommending that you use a sort of comfort drops to moisturise the eye during the healing process.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask. :thumbsup:

My Mum was considering just one eye being done, with optical express, I was concerned she may get headaches, as she needs glasses for distance and different ones for reading, she thought by having one done it would balance it out. Optical Express arranged a contact lense trial for her to wear just one for a week to see how she got on. She wanted it done but went back and the surgeon wouldn't do it, he was worried it wouldn't work on her properly (ghosting), and referred her to their Harley Street specialist.

I wanted it done too, but my corneas are too thin the next best I could have is intra-ocular lenses, basically an internal contact lense, but it cost £4500!! Although a few months after the consultation they did send me a £250 voucher off, so maybe it's worth waiting a month or two after until you get a discount sent through!!

i had both eyes done at one time, and to be honest i would do the same again. I don't like pain either and it was painful but only for the one night, i just hate taking tablets (i gave birth with only gas & air) but necked the sleeping pills and painkillers they gave me like a madman, but it is only one night so go for it.:thumbsup:

When I had the surgery they actually cut a circle in the cornea, peeled it back and then used the laser so maybe it is still something you could consider.

After having one eye lasered the improvement was amazing, I would possibly have considered not having the other one done if I was in your Mum's situation, but as I didn't need reading glasses at the time went ahead with the second eye.

That's exactly the reason I can't - as they can't cut the whole in the cornea and flap it back because it's too thin.

If you get cataracts you can get IOLs on the NHS :)
