hi, all i am planning to get laser eye surgery, and i have been to optimax, they quoted me £1800 for both eyes, as they said i have got high numbers (about -4.75 on each eyes) so i am not eligible for £400 each eyes their cheapest laser eye surgery.

now i have collected £340 worth tesco vouchers so this gives me £1360 towards it, so i still have to pay £440 from the pocket, or is there any vouchers available to get bit more discount or you cant use any vouchers because you using tesco vouchers????

i need a feedback from the people have got it done there, my nearest one is leicester, has anybody got it done there,?? please advise me, r they good???? worth take a risk of eyes???, thanks.

I had mine done 4 years ago and luckily I didn't pay as much as you. I got it over an intrerest free period (can't remember if it was 12 or 24 months). I am glad I had them done - but it did take a few weeks for my vision to become 'normal'. My advice is to keep using comfort drops because this helps with the dry flaking that can occur on the eye, this is not painful but does affect the vision slightly until it has cleared. You don't say how old you are but I have now found at 50 that my distance vision is perfect but I need glasses for reading. Still better than always having to wear glasses. Good luck.

My wife has got severe dry eyes after having laser with this company, the laser killed off the nerves that produce tears.

She went back to them for help, they didn't want to know, since she has been under doctors, both NHS and private with no improvement to the point where she is suicidal because she can't cope with the discomfort.

Many people are ok after laser, but they don't tell you your eyes will revert to their former state after 5-10 years.

Think seriously before doing it.

Two people at work got it done and after 7-8 years they are both back wearing glasses.

had it done 8 years ago. eyes still good. it is true however that it cant halt the ageing process of the eye but at 23 you shouldn't have those worries. did have dry eyes for a few months after but not a major problem. the risks are very low, millions of people have had it done

Try £4000, and you become Stevie Wonder for a day. As your eyes are sore. Look deeper into it. Its a big decision. Just cause you have vouchers doesnt mean you should get it done.

Ideally you want a bogoff, buy one eye, get one free

Technology has changed a lot in 8 years. What ever happened to mini discs??

I had one eye done (-4.25) 17 years ago with PRK in one of the first trials at Moorfields Hospital for £500 - in those days they did one eye at time because it was thought a bit risky. After 4 weeks I went back for the other eye and at the pre-test they said I could cope with one eye. I have monovision now, I see distance with the 'done' eye and I read with the short-sighted eye. I do this unconsciously and don't notice I'm doing it. If you were older this is definitely something to consider. It was one of the best things I have EVER done - I still have perfect vision after all this time and don't need reading glasses. Go somewhere where you have confidence in the surgeon. I travelled to London from Manchester. Moorfields still do it although they're expensive but you save in the long run because there is no expense on glasses and contacts.
