Lens surgery can change your life.
It’s an increasingly popular treatment which can be used to correct both distance and near vision. It’s also used to help people with cataracts, helping them to see the world clearly again.
Often, lens surgery is the most effective way to reduce your reliance on glasses and contact lenses. Optical Express has been helping people to do just that for more than 15 years.
There are two different types of lens surgery; the procedure that we recommend depends upon your specific needs. The first, lens replacement surgery, is also known as refractive lens exchange (RLE) and the second is Phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) surgery. At Optical Express, we offer a variety of premium lenses, so that we can provide the best solution for each patient’s individual visual requirements.
As 85% of people who come to Optical Express for a consultation are suitable for a procedure, it’s very likely that you will be too. Why not try using one of our suitability tools to get a quick initial indication?
Our expert Surgeons use the same technology that led NASA to approve laser eye surgery for its astronauts. More than £400 million has been invested in state of the art clinics and technologies. We use advanced femtosecond and excimer lasers, which are incredibly precise and accurate, so that we can provide our patients with their very best results.
From children’s first eye tests to teenagers’ glasses, from contact lenses to prescription sunglasses and from laser eye surgery and lens replacement in later life, we’ve looked after the health of our patients and their families’ eyes for over 25 years. Not only do we provide the best in clinical care, but we have optical solutions for all patients too.
We’ve never stood still. Since we opened our first optical practice in 1991, over £400 million has been invested in technology, giving our clinicians access to the most advanced methods of vision correction and providing the best visual results for our patients. At Optical Express, you’ll find that we provide exceptional clinical expertise, outstanding surgical outcomes and a complete aftercare programme. We, quite simply, want to bring a new sense of joy into your life.
