Unless your serious about getting Laser Eye surgery I wouldn't register your details with Optimax.

Without fail I get 1 to 6 pieces of mail through my letterbox every week. Often 2 on the same day.

Can't seem to delete my details and stop all this junk mail from them.

As for the price, they do seem to be cheaper then their competitors, especially Ultralase.

Anyone remember Shell Optimax?

Same here every week i get their junk mail, by post and email, despite asking them on several occasions to remove me from their database. I have also informed them I am on the mail preference service list and they still do it.

I had my eyes done with these guys a few months ago when a simuilar offer was on. Optical Express and Ultralase were almost double for me (-7). It is a good deal if you have don't fall into the cheap bracket (+ or -2), and once done .... its done. No more glasses.

Did it all go okay, can I ask how much you had to pay for -7, I am -6 and have a consultation booked for next month?

Being an eye surgeon myself and having known an excellent consultant colleague who worked for them and told me of all the near misses he had prevented due to his diligence, I would not let them near my dead cats eyes. The system of payment was based on numbers of procedure performed, so the incentive was to ignore little contraindications to ensure they got paid for the work they have done. Also the adverts are brilliant, the company has performed 1/2 million procedures or whatever the number is, but the person in front of you may still be in single figures. They are very, very unlikely to be eye consultants and are more likely to be eye surgeons who are trying to boost their income or cannot get a substantive post in an NHS hospital.

You only have 2 eyes and when it goes wrong it can go very wrong. In the NHS we often pick up the problems.

I am sitting here in glasses. Yes they are a pain, but at least when I see the optician for a new pair there is no risk that they may leave me significantly worse off.:oops:

There are many successes as the computer software does most of the work, but the guy looking at your eyes needs to be able to spot any anticipated complications or contraindications. Also they need the moral ability to tell a patient they are not suitable for the procedure even though they have spent a lot of time preparing the patient for it.

Also remember that you will end up needing reading glasses after the procedure if you are short sighted. At about -6 and worse you can hardly see the room without your glasses and all the other aberrations you can get so this is the level that it may be beneficial, but the predictability of the results is less and the complications are more. I would not have it done, unless I went to an expert and I knew their results inside out. There are only 2 people I would trust. Both are now in Australia. I am sure their are capable consultants in the UK, but I do not know their results inside out. So would not be brave enough to recommend anybody.

I just know who I would not recommend.

Sorry Optimax, but pack em high and sell it cheap is not the mentality that should be put to our sight. With glasses you can get a new pair, but donor corneas are not such an easy solution.

The Simpsons analogy is a good one. I always remember the episode when they went into the future and Homer said "I had laser treatment years ago and suddenly my eyes exploded" the laser surgery in the US took a big hit from that.


P.S. Voting HOT so more people are likely to see this and avoid them Hopefully. At least it may save someone's sight.

I've had my eyes done 5 yrs ago by this company and I don't regret it for one moment!! I would recomment it to anyone but make sure it is right for you! Make sure you know what it involves!!

I looked up on this a while ago, ask yourself this, why hasn't every optician signed up? Why aren't opticians business's falling like domino's?

The general impression I got was these places give you the consult you want to hear and the one they want so they get your money, shift you through a same day clinic and kick you out the door.

Where as if you went privately via Moorfields Eye Hospital, you would get a honest impartial consultation where sales is NOT their motivation, unfortunately cost is significantly higher too. But what you get for that price is to have the operation done in a world renowned eye hospital and should anything go wrong you are in a facility that can deal with it, unlike the small clinics and wards these cheap places offer where decent redundant care doesn't exist.

Have some heat. I took my brother to a competitor of Optimax's based in Solihull in May 2008. He had his consultation and procedure on the same day, we were packed in like sardines and there was a lot of waiing around, He was desperate to be rid of his "jam jar" glasses and he had a high prescription, plus other issues. His procedure took 10 minutes and cost £3300. The operation went well and now he is glasses free. After seeing how well his operation went, and unable to afford the same amount. I decided to pay the£395 per eye and went to Optimax in Birmingham exactly 1 week later. Admittedly my prescription was completely different to his, but I cannot praise them enough. The service and aftercare have been exactly the same and I would throughly recommend them.

I LOVE BEING GLASSES FREE!!!!

I went with Optimax and it was £1700 (I think but got other quotes from other at around £3500). Although the half price offer was only suppose to be for the LASIK Wavefront, I got the LASEK Wavefront after some negotiation and its fine. Eyes a bit dry sometimes and a little more sensitive to the occasional wack from a 3 year old. But all in all, very happy. Still doesn't feel right not having to reach for the glasses all the time.

I used this code and they told me 2395 for the same treatment. This was Optimax Glasgow, who I woudln't trust to sharpen a pencil, as I had to go back twice for measurements on one machine as it as "playing up"

I had my surgery in 2007 by optical express and I can highly recommend them. I did lots of research before hand and found that they used the best surgeons and latest equipment.

I have some vouchers which will save you £150 off any laser treatment at Optical Express. I am happy to post it to anyone who wants one! Just drop me a PM here.

I see this thread has fallen by the wayside a little. I would be interested in getting the laser surgery, however money and nerves have always held me back. I'm just tired of glasses now tbh! Wonder if we can get this thread restarted with a few more opinions from people who have had it done, or maybe are planning on going for it?
