FAQ - Choosing a provider
Of all the decisions you'll make regarding your eye treatment, choosing who will perform it may feel like the hardest. It’s completely understandable that you’d like to put some thought into which provider you have you treatment with.
The following questions may help to make your decision easier.
Can I see your company results?
All companies should be able to provide you with their own treatment results and explain how they are applicable to you.
What qualifications does my surgeon have?
All companies should be able to provide details of their surgeons' qualifications. All practitioners must hold registration with the General Medical Council in the UK and with the Ireland Medical Council in Ireland as a minimum.
In addition they may also be Fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons (UK/Ireland) or be recognised as eye specialists by the General Medical Council (GMC) or the Ireland Medical Council (IMC). For laser surgeons, there is also a certification in the laser eye treatment from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO).
At Ultralase, all our laser eye surgeons are certified by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, or carry equivalent accreditation.
