Hasta la vista, glasses!!!

Brings back memories.. had laser nearly 12 years ago now best thing I ever did .. it's not for everyone granted but totally worth it if you can have it

Haha, can now wear Terminator black Ray-bans without contacts and throw away ugly as sin prescription sunglasses!

Just had mine done this weekend with the same treatment and then my sister posts this offer to rub some salt in!
(I can take £200 hit to pay back over 2 years though).

I had mine done at Optimax Peterborough about 2.5 years ago and my eyesight is brilliant now. I just wonder what this price covers as when I had mine done the price was based on your prescription. I Paid for mine with Tesco clubcard vouchers.

I had laser surgery at Optimax Birmingham back in May 2003, definitely one of my best decisions. Second only to getting married if my Wife reads this....

I only need glasses for reading, is anyone else the same and had this done?

how did it work out?

Two technological advancements with this treatment:

Intralase

Wavefront

Intralase creates the flap with a laser vs a blade - more accurate, less potential issues.

Wavefront is customised laser treatment vs standard - potentially better vision than standard laser or glasses and less issues with night-time vision

Wow, that must of been a lot of Tesco points!

I have mild astigmatism and -6.5 so there is hope even for Adrian Mole!

I had mine done 17 years ago - great eyesight still!!

I was told to ask the surgeons if they had had it done, none had, I wonder why?

"I'll be back!" But hopefully the glasses won't!

Probably because they didn't need glasses

The opthamologist and an adviser said they had it done though I couldn't check their medical history to see if they were snake-oil peddlers.

Err it comes free with your eyes and carrots haha.

Seriously though, the wavefront treatment is included in the £1995 price and potentially increases your low light vision, with reduced risk of night time glare and halos vs standard laser treatment as it is customised. Hope this helps.

This doesn't give you the ability to shoot lasers out of your eyes like superman or cyclops from the X-men. That's false advertising.

" less issues with night-time vision"

Not blind as a bat a night, just blind?

Had mine done about 5 years ago. Daytime vision is brilliant but driving at night can be a strain.

If your thinking about getting it done & your correction is large, make sure you ask about the halo effect.

Was this with wavefront treatment?

"Wavefront and Night Time Vision

Wavefront is a big advantage to those with large pupils and poor night time vision. The optical performance of the eye is measured at each and every place on the cornea, including the part which is used when the pupil is large. Laser treatment is then programmed to each tiny part of the corneal surface so that every area of the cornea gets the optimised dosage. Contrast sensitivity in low lighting levels is increased and the risk of developing night time halos and glare is greatly decreased"

Wavefront is an improvement over standard laser treatment with a greatly reduced risk of night halos and glare.

Was never sure about laser but reading these comments certainly make it sound good!!
Good info about 'haloing' - had never hear of that before. Anyone got any other things I should watch out for when/if I eventually get this done?

Surgeons are up their with snipers and eagles in terms of eyesight - that's probably why.

Is there any point in me getting this?

I'm going to be on a computer pretty much everyday for the rest of my life as I have a career in software development.

I'm only 20 though, so will probs wait till my vision stops changing.

Any chance this can be over a year or two? I'd love to have it done as I hate my glasses but that's pretty much my entire savings.

heat just for the arnie picture.

Normally you get an option like that but as this is through wowcher doesn't look like that's possible , need to pay the full amount upfront , if you need it done and I do and I would love to get it then it seems a good price for both eyes with good technology and looks like this method just uses a laser only for the procedure.

Thing is also if your not suitable for this procedure you will get the money refunded but imagine there being a problem with the refund for nearly 2 grand. Think I might go and get a test done first with them and see if I'm eligible for this procedure then when they ask me to go for it ill be like sorry i seen a deal on hukd via wowcher lol

Cold,because its same operation in istanbul/Turkey both eyes only €650 and flight etc. €600 still so cheap and doctors are experience professors.if you need any advise let me know.

Anyone considering this should google the female singer from the Scottish band Bis...

PS not voting either way.

I had this done through optical express, original quote from all companies was over 3200 quid as my right eye had severe astigmatism but got an email with a deal for 1500 if had it done by end of the month. I had intralase the all laser treatment and my eye sight is great, best decision i made. Main advice I'd give to anyone is see many different companies first before choosing to have it done, optimax said i couldn't have it done as my astigmatism was beyond there parameter but everyone else said it's okay to do. All in all i would recommend to anyone, hope this helps

Do i have a chance at -10 eyesight? lol

Why...? Searched... found nothing that I could relate to this topic.

I thought the price was based on your prescription - so how can they have fixed price for all?

The "instead of £3770" in the deal title is a bit misleading. That would be the price for a very high prescription, some people would only have to pay around £2000 anyway and others less if their prescription is very low.

Because what you thought was wrong.

Optimax have a fixed price, other companies do base their prices on prescription.

Ok thanks. But £2k is still a fairly common price you can get at any of the other companies, so I don't think this is a very good "deal". This is probably better for those with very high prescriptions who would be charged a lot more elsewhere.

Maybe so, yes. It might be because the fairly common price isn't for the Intralase Wavefront thing?

I enquired with Optimax a while ago and they sent me an email ast week with this very offer but nothing to do with Wowcher.

I might do it as my prescription IS very high and this does seem like the best technology atm.

Optimax wouldn't be my choice but each to their own, do some research there is a lot of info on the web. I'm sure many people treated there have had great results. If you register your interest with any of the other companies you are likely to get sent special offers for around this price.

I would just ask them, there is this wowcher thing and the fact that they sent me an email offering it to me without wowcher, so...worth a punt.

I got quoted £74.81 a month over 24 months.
