Boots Opticians are able to support you with a range of services including eye checks, glasses and contact lenses, however we recognise that some people may wish to explore other ways of correcting their vision, such as laser eye surgery. Whilst Boots Opticians don’t offer this service, Optegra offer a range of clinical procedures, including laser eye surgery.
Why laser eye surgery?
Every year over 100,000 people in the UK alone opt for laser eye surgery. It’s one of the most popular elective procedures in the world today, with over 30 million people now viewing life in greater clarity thanks to successful laser eye surgery.
How does laser eye surgery work?
Laser eye surgery is a procedure which corrects eye conditions such as short sight, long sight and astigmatism. Laser technology is used to reshape the eye’s cornea, correcting any imperfections which may be hindering your vision and improving the eye’s ability to focus. When carried out by a qualified Ophthalmologist, laser eye surgery is considered an effective procedure which can grant clearer, sharper vision. As with all surgical procedures, there is some degree of risk, but the chances of complications with laser eye surgery are minimal. Complications occur in less than one per cent of cases and in the event that complications do occur, they can be addressed by further treatment in most cases. Still, it’s best to do your research so you’re fully prepared and know how to keep laser eye surgery risks to a minimum.
