Choosing to undergo any sort of surgery is a big decision. Even though Ultralase are experts in the field, laser eye surgery is mostly painless and the recovery times are short, there are still some key aspects that you need to consider before undergoing treatment. Many of these considerations are practical and shouldn’t take you long to digest. For any questions that you can’t answer yourself, Ultralase offer a free consultation, during which you can air your concerns and find the advice that you need.

Are you eligible?

The first consideration you’ll need to take on board is your eligibility. Firstly, you’ll need to be at least 18 years old, although you may have to wait until you’re 21, or until your prescription has stopped changing, to ensure the best results from the procedure. Next, you need to ensure that your eyes are healthy at the time of your surgery. This means that anyone suffering from infections will need to wait until they’re cleared up. If you suffer from more severe problems, you’ll need to talk to experts to check your suitability.

Payment and payment plans

If you are eligible for the treatment, the next thing you’ll need to consider is how you’re going to pay for the surgery. Ultralase laser eye surgery clinics offer a range of payment plans, so if you can’t afford to pay for the treatment in one lump sum, you can spread the payments over a period of months or even years.

Is there a clinic near you?

An important practical consideration when organising your laser eye surgery is whether there is a clinic close to where you live. Your eyes will heal very quickly following the treatment, but you shouldn’t drive straight away, so you’ll need to ensure that someone can pick you up and take you home. As Ultralase have clinics from Edinburgh to Exeter and Liverpool to London, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue, but it’s worth checking just in case.

Long-term benefits

The most important factor to consider is whether the long-term benefits outweigh the costs and any short-term inconvenience. Long-term freedom from glasses and contact lenses – along with the freedom to take part in extreme sports and outdoor pursuits- are all among the benefits you’ll experience, as well as the difference it will make to your life on a daily basis. If you’ve suffered from poor eyesight for years, you probably feel like these benefits are worth their weight in gold, so contact you local clinic today and start the journey to a better quality of life.
