Any eye procedure can seem like a worrying prospect but your well-being and safety is a paramount concern for us at Optilase.
Our Consultant Team members are all registered with the Irish Medical Council and together we have performed over 40,000 laser eye surgery procedures here in Ireland. We offer the latest techniques and we use state-of-the-art equipment. Our clinics are second to none.
We believe in taking a holistic approach to any eye problem. We have a lot of different solutions and we can advise you what treatment or combination of aproaches will suit you best.
One important difference with Optilase is that you will always meet your Consultant prior to your procedure so you understand exactly what’s happening and the Surgeon gets to know your eye. This way you are sure of the best possible outcome.
LASIK/LASEK vision corrections and other advanced sight improvement procedures like Intra-Ocular lenses offer life-changing opportunities. Come and talk to us, you will be in the best of hands.
