The latest wave of vision correction has arrived in the UK.

Thanks to groundbreaking advances in technology, scientists have managed to make laser eye surgery more effective and affordable than ever before.

As any glasses-wearer will tell you, spectacles are hardly a practical choice. You can lose them or break them, they’re a nightmare when it rains, and they often affect how people perceive you.

Contact lenses can cost a fortune every month – and if you forget spares you're in big trouble. Luckily, laser eye surgery is now a real alternative for all.

A quick, virtually painless procedure that can take as little as 10 minutes per eye, laser eye gives you freedom from glasses - and nowadays for a far better price. No wonder over 15,000 people a year are choosing 20/20 vision with laser eye surgery, the only question you will ask is - why didn’t I do it sooner?

Quick Procedure, Lasting Benefits

The latest procedures are so advanced that your vision can be corrected in around twenty minutes.

With a 99% chance of achieving 20/20 vision, laser eye can cure a number of conditions including short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.

Clinics also offer payment plans, meaning you can pay as little as £29 per month - less than £1 a dayfor treatment at the UK’s top clinics - far cheaper than contact lenses in the long run. 

The operation uses a cool beam of light to reshape the transparent layer at the front of the eye. Vision is corrected within one day and most people can return to work within two. Recovery is quick and no bandages or stitches are usually required, giving you instant results.

And, with no worries about forgetting your glasses or spare contacts, you'll win back your sense of spontaneity as well.
