The UK's leading eye surgeons, Ultralase opened in January 1991. Initially all surgeries used Photorefractive Keratotomy, or PRK; however, the advent of laser surgery in 1995 changed that, with the Lasik procedure quickly becoming the surgery of choice for those seeking vision correction.
What they offer :
Ultralase offers vision correction through its network of clinics, based in major cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Cardiff.
Ultralase offers an initial free consultation, at which your vision is assessed and treatment options are explained based on your prescription. In about 90% of cases, surgery will be able to effect an improvement.
The most common vision correction treatment offered by Ultralase is laser eye surgery, with UltraLASIKplus being their most popular option - it is the most precise, safest and most accurate, and is considered to be the 'Gold Standard' of laser eye treatments.
However, for reasons of prescription or affordability, some people might not choose, or might not be suitable for UltraLASIKplus. In this case other options will be explained that will be most suitable for you.
Is it any good?
Vision correction surgery has improved dramatically since the 1980s, with today's laser surgeries fast, effective and safe. Indeed, NASA has approved the use of Lasik surgery for its astronauts.
Of course, as with any surgery, there are risks, and a small percentage of patients don't get the improvements that they hoped for.
