Laser Eye Surgery
Laser eye surgery is a procedure that corrects your vision. It uses high-tech bladeless technology to reshape your cornea for light to enter the eye in the correct way so your vision is improved. We’re able to treat near-sightedness, farsighted-ness as well as astigmatism; which is something many patients believed to be un-treatable to begin with.
At Ultralase, we provide state of the art technology to correct your distance vision. Laser vision correction has been around for over forty years, so it’s certainly not new. However, as people are becoming increasingly more familiar with laser eye surgery, many may not know that the way we treat patients has changed drastically since the 90s!
What types of laser surgery are there?
When it comes to laser eye surgery, we provide the following:
Our aim is to ensure that you get the best quality treatment and result that you can possibly receive. At this stage, it's vital we are thorough with the screening process, but that’s because we want to make sure we have covered everything we can, ahead of the procedure!
How much does laser eye surgery cost?
For laser eye surgery we charge £1,995 per eye (£3,990 both eyes). This price remains the same regardless of your prescription. Our prices are fixed and there are no hidden costs or extra payments required. We also offer interest-free credit for up to 12 months. For more information please visit our Cost page.
Lifetime Aftercare Guarantee
Unlike many other providers, at Ultralase we offer our patients a Lifetime Aftercare Guarantee to make sure you are 100% satisfied with the results of your treatment and your overall experience with us. Our Lifetime Aftercare service includes any necessary re-treatment and care at Ultralase by one of our surgeons/optometrists after your initial procedure, if you are found suitable for re-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions for Laser Eye Surgery
You may have many questions around laser eye treatment, so before you go ahead and book your free consultation, take a look at some frequently asked questions that you may have had.
We are able to provide vision correction solutions for long-sight, short-sight, and astigmatism.
Over 98% of our patients no longer wear prescription glasses for driving standard vision, and more than half of our patients come through to us via recommendations from their friends or family.
You may be familiar with some of the equipment and tests that we will carry out at your consultation, from eye tests at the opticians.
With these test results, we can build up a personalised treatment plan in accordance to what will suit your needs and lifestyle. You will then have the time to sit down and discuss, in detail, how you would like to move forward, alongside any other questions that you may have.
Your consultation will last around 2 hours. Please remember the following:
- Depending on what contact lenses you wear, you will need to remove these a few days prior to your consultation.
- You will be unable to drive after your consultation.
- Your consultation will be free of charge, however we do require a £10 holding fee for a weekday or a £30 holding fee for a Saturday appointment, which is refunded back to you straight after you attend the consultation.
There is no obligation to move forward with treatment after the consultation. We encourage you to take as much time as you need to make a decision in regards to what you would like to do from there on.
LASIK allows you to get back to normal quicker than LASEK, however LASEK treatment is given to patients with a lower prescription (-4.50 or below) since it is safer and will achieve the same long term results.
Please remember that there is no blade involved in either laser eye surgery procedure.
- We recommend LASIK treatment for prescriptions of -6.0 and above for myopia and up to +6.0 for hyperopia.
- Both LASIK and LASEK can be given to both eyes on the same day, in most cases.
- We recommend LASEK laser eye surgery for prescriptions above -6.0 if the corneas are thin.
- LASIK eye surgery can be given for all prescriptions -10.0 and under.
If you have undergone LASEK treatment, please try to avoid harsh sunlight for at least four weeks if you are taking part in outdoor sports, because the UV light may create a haze.
