Why is the Laser Eye Surgery consultation process so important?

When you hear the word ‘consultation’- especially FREE consultation, you would be forgiven for thinking of an unnecessary and expensive rush job with minimal patient-surgeon interaction. But, when it comes to Laser Eye Surgery at Optilase clinics around Ireland, the consultation process has been designed to maximize patient satisfaction.

Understanding the Laser Eye Surgery process

It is very important to us that you are completely at ease and totally relaxed during Laser Eye Surgery, because when you decide to have Laser Eye Surgery, we understand that it may not be a decision you have taken lightly.


During your free Laser Eye Surgery consultation at Optilase, you will be encouraged to ask any questions you might have about the procedure itself. Believe us when we say there is no question that we haven’t heard before, so feel free to ask us anything!

What’s your motivating factor for getting Laser Eye Surgery?

One of the most important things to consider when you book your free Laser Eye Surgery consultation is your motivation for why?


You need to ask yourself why you want Laser Eye Surgery in the first place and ensure you are ready for a complete lifestyle change.


If you have relied on glasses on contact lenses for a long time, then suddenly not needing them anymore is something you should prepare yourself for.

What can I expect during my Laser Eye Surgery consultation?

Your free Laser Eye Surgery consultation at Optilase will take roughly one hour and it will involve a detailed eye examination so that Laser Eye Surgery can be specifically tailored to best suit your particular vision prescription.


Corneal thickness and the size of your pupils will also play a part in deciding whether you are a suitable candidate for Laser Eye Surgery.


Furthermore, an in-depth look will be taken at your eyes to rule out any pre-existing conditions that may include, but are not limited to:

  • Severe dry eyes
  • Cataracts
  • Inflammatory eye disease
  • Retinal disease
