I have been considering having my eyes lasered so I don't need to wear my specs anymore. I have just noticed that you can pay for the treatment at the Optimax surgeries using Tesco clubcard deals as whole or part payment. The surgery costs a minimum of £395 per eye which is just under £100 in vouchers. ( I have just got enough to get them both done). Considering most of these vouchers have been earnt using deals from this site in my case, I think it is a bargain.

I didn't know this so thank you melcarroll!

gari189 - did you get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?? It always amazes me why people leave negative comments to a post that is put on to advise or show people a deal. Why not just say nothing if you are not interested and move on....

There is a thread here with tons of info and reports from people that have had it done on Tesco Deasl http://www.paidtoshop.co.uk/showthread.php?t=22330&highlight=optimax

Very interesting - thanks for highlighting

Eye Eye... got about £50 tesco points if anyone is interested...

Had my eyes lasered there, Birmingham branch, would recommend it to anyone. Was wearing glasses for 13 years, 20 minutes later all done. One year on and eyes are perfect. Go for it.

Be aware though that the £395 per eye is for the very basic treatment and a very low prescription. I had Lasik with Femtosecond (uses a laser to cut the flap in your eye instead of a blade) and it was just over £2000 in total.

Best £2k i've ever spent I tell you.
#11
like the guy above said its is from £395 an eye i'm actually getting mine done next week and costing me £3400 i am pretty bad at seeing :( but when people ask me about they are like y they say from £395 then.
#12
Very informative, thank you. Heat & Rep added:thumbsup:
#13
I just can't see it personally!!:thinking:
#14
Anyone wondering what Optimax are like as a company I had my eyes done a couple of years back at the Ipswich branch and would highly recommend them. Professional, patient, thorough and it was the best thing I ever did.

Can anyone who has had this done please tell me how much pain is involved?
Just typing about it makes my eyes water.
#16
Ah what a great find it had made me re think im fed up with my glasses.... nice one : )
#17
I have done a lot of research into laser eye surgery and after reading about the known side effects, potential issues and lack of long term effect knowledge I am not embaressed to say that I ended up sticking with contact lenses.

I have friends who have had it done and are very pleased but it is definitely something that you need to make sure you have all the facts about first though. I would strongly recommend that anyone considering this do their research first as you only get one set of eyes. Just the fact that the flap only heals to about 2-5% of it's original strength and leaves a scar was enough to put me off. Apparently due to this sudden shock (like in playing squash) can case it to fall open. Yeeks!

One detailed site for people who've had issues: http://www.complicatedeyes.org/

For me the risk outweighed the rewards. Good deal though for those that want it.

No real pain at all, just an uncomfortable feeling for about 10 minutes. Like getting sand in your eyes but not being able to rub your eyes to get it out.

Remember, on the internet, for every one post from someone who has had a bad experience and taken the time to write up about it, there are probably a lot more people who are happy with their laser eye surgery and don't bother to post about it. Same with most things.

Good site to use is [url]www.lasik-eyes.co.uk[/url] which shows feedback from all major operators. Don't be put off by people saying 'Had mine done a week ago and still burry' etc. as over time they get better each day and they shouldn't really post until a few months later.

I had treatment on the Thursday and was back at work (work on a PC all day) on the following Tuesday.

Here is the Optimax page: http://www.lasik-eyes.co.uk/Clinics/ClinicDetails.aspx?ClinicId=4

End of the day, think how many people you know who have had it done, how many say how great it is, and how many have had problems. They are very few and far between. In fact I don't know anyone who had had it done and it gone wrong. If there were big risks it would be all over the papers / watchdog etc.

I'm having my left eye done on the 15th Feb - The £395 treatment is appropriate for me as my prescription is quite low (2 maybe.....) however apparently this isn't the right treatment for many people, so the cost goes up and approx 20% of people seeking treatment aren't suitable for any surgery at all.

Wish I'd seen this 2 weeks ago as it would have cost me £160 less.

C'est la vie but heat and rep added.
#21
I'm going to start wearing lenses next week (thats when my first batch comes in), from the research I did its all fine if it goes well, but if it doesnt you could having to put eye drops in your eyes every few hours for dry eyes or even worse. i'm just to scared that theres a chance that could happen, I'll stick with daily contacts which are about £14 month online, just need to find good value aftercare soon
#22
I was lucky enough to be the bloke that got the £395/eye price!!
Highly recommended.

I burst out laughing the first time I realised I could now put pens behind my ear!
#23
Great deal but unfortunately I can't have it done. :(
#24
Good post, and will be of interest to a lot of people.

But with all this talk of lasers, scars and flaps in your eyes - I think I'll stick to my specs. ;-)
#25
There is a whole section on laser eye surgery cost cutting at moneysavingexpert.com under family & health, mentions the clubcard method etc. I wear glasses and have considered getting this done - bit scary.
#26
It was mentioned in the MSE mailout the other week, and as mako says they have a detailed thread on it.
#27
Thanks for the information
#28
had mine done but at ULTRALASE 4.5k both eyes
theres no pain after treatment but when the eye drops wear off boy its painfull
#29
great post. i've always thought about having it done. but i wear contact lenses and i guess i'm scared of the consequences in case it goes wrong.
good to know that tesco can pay for it though. they have great offers on lenses too!
#30
I had mine done aboard...did the wavefront guided full laser treatment

Its the best one ultralase can provide and it cost just over 1k for me :) (1.9k at ultralase PER eye)
#31
Hi, me and my husband had our eyes lasered nearly 3 years ago - BRILLIANT - wish I had it done sooner

They said then that it was £395 an eye but my eyes were £595 each and my husbands was £595 for one and £695 for the other!
#32
Good post, it's something I didnt know about and would use!!

I so wish I could have it done, apparently im one of those with thin corneas so they can t make a flap, to do the surgery. I've been back 3 times in the last 10 years to see if they can do anything else for me - still waiting for new affordable treatments to come out, I was looking at lense implants but still far too expensive :(

Sounds like a good deal. Can you give some more info on where you got it done? Thanks
#34
Go onto Ebay and search under Optimax - you can save £800 and get 18 mths interest free - Optimax usually say it's one or the other but on the site you can have both - I already had an appt when I saw this so called Optimax and said I wanted that price and they said OK with the 18 mths interest free - being lasered next Fri and all the better for being £800 cheaper (this was for the Lasik with Intralase - no scalpel!!)
[helper]#35
For those thinking about this I would advise you read the NHS guidance on this first - just so that you are aware of the risks and the success rates (it doesn't work every time)

http://www.nice.org.uk/nicemedia/pdf/ip/IPG164publicinfo.pdf

By voting this hot you've all been very short sighted....
#36
I would give this a COLD COLD effect ... Too scared after my research a couple of months ago ... My EYES are better dont want them to get WORSE ... Beaware of the RISKS before you give it a nod ... I am sure it has worked for many and not worked for only a few .... but scared if i get counted among the few ... dont want to live with blurred vision for the rest of my LIFE ... Mind it there is no INSURANCE to cover if it does not work for you and you end up having a worse vision ...

Chas - you thought about those new contact lenses you wear at night when you are asleep? They work by temporarily changing the shape of the eye (long enough to last through the daytime) which means you don't have to wear contacts or glasses during the day.
#38
Thanks everyone for voting hot. I am glad most of you have found it useful. I have been for an assessment today and I am suitable for the £395 per eye treatment. They booked me in for a consultation & possible treatment on 21/2/08 but then I remembered I am going skiing on 15/3 so had to cancel in case of any problems I dont think my holiday insurance would cover me. But I will definately be rebooking after my hols. The clinic manager did try to put me off the cheap method but I am not sure if that was to make more money from me or if I would genuinely be better off ? she had cheap treatment on one eye and expensive on other.

so what was the total for both eyes?
