Q&A Series: If Laser Eye Surgery is Cheaper Elsewhere, Why Should I Choose LaserVision?

26th June 2017


Comparing laser eye clinics when choosing which vision correction provider to treat something as precious as your eyes can be extremely difficult, especially when budget is a major factor in your decision. You may find that a lot of high street clinics do work out cheaper, especially when they are tempting you with one-off deals and heavily discounted offers on treatment, which will inevitably lead to the question, why should I use LaserVision when they are not the cheapest?

High street vs Hospital Based

While many vision correction companies are based in cheaper clinic/high street settings, LaserVision clinics are only based within the safety and governance of leading NHS and private hospitals, to give our patients the best level of care available.

One fits all vs Personalised Treatment

LaserVision was founded on a passion for personalised treatment, which is a big part of what sets us apart from other providers who offer standard treatments. Our consultant surgeons and health care team tailor each consult, treatment procedure and aftercare plan to cater to your specific needs. We can guarantee you won’t feel like a number with LaserVision.

Sales person vs Consultant led Consultation

Unlike some clinics, we never use a consultation to give you a sales pitch. With LaserVision, you will always see a specialist Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon who will thoroughly assess your eyes to determine your suitability for vision correction treatment. If you are suitable, your consultant will then talk with you at length about what treatment options are recommended for your eyes. This will also give you the time to discuss the benefits, affordability and all the facts before making your decision. We will never send you offers or deals in a bid to persuade you into surgery when you may not be ready.

Surgeons vs Experts

Unfortunately, you don’t have to be a corneal specialist to perform laser eye surgery. All laser eye surgeons will need to undergo the relevant training and pass exams however LaserVision only employ specialists to give the personalised treatment we believe in. As specialists in complex corneal and intra-ocular surgery, the surgeons at LaserVision offer many procedures beyond laser eye surgery, including lens surgery, implantable contact lenses, corneal segments and corneal grafts. All our surgeons are Fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and are members of both the European and American society of refractive surgeons. LaserVision surgeons also lead the corneal service in their trusts and boast specialist fellowship training in cornea and refractive surgery.

Suitable vs Leading Technology

Opposed to selecting technology and equipment for its price and general suitability, our industry leading equipment has been personally selected by our team of surgeons to get the very best results for our patients.

So what does this all mean?

At LaserVision, our specialist treatments may cost slightly more, but you really do get what you pay for. The unrivalled expertise you will receive from our Consultant Surgeons, the hospital based setting, industry leading technology and extremely high level of care is what you will be paying for. With something as precious as your sight, we believe this is the only way.
