The Optical Express LASIK eye surgery treatment offered at every treatment clinic is iLASIK, a revolutionary new all-laser treatment that offers unrivalled customised results, making it the premium LASIK eye surgery treatment in the world today.
iLASIK uses the IntraLase method to create the protective flap at the beginning of treatment, an all-laser technique using a state-of-the-art IntraLase iFS 150 femtosecond laser. Optical Express is the only provider to offer iFS 150 technology in all of its clinics across the UK and Ireland.
Optical Express offers iLASIK eye surgery treatment powered by iDesign, the industry’s most advanced, high-definition, wavefront-guided measurement technology for wavefront treatment.
At Optical Express, both our iLASIK and LASEK treatments may be enhanced with iDesign, revolutionary wavefront diagnostic technology that can detect even the most minute imperfections of your eye, allowing your surgeon to customise your treatment to the exact specification of your eyes.
iDesign captures over 1,200 micro readings of your eye prescription, five times more than previous wavefront technology. To put this in context, for glasses and contact lenses only one reading is measured.
Using advanced, high-definition, wavefront-guided technology to take a one-of-a-kind snapshot of your eye, iDesign collects five different measurements at the push of a button.
This 3-D image is a highly accurate ‘blueprint’ of your eye, detailing every minute characteristic, allowing your surgeon to generate a customised treatment plan, unique to you. This information is then transferred to the computer-guided laser to correct these imperfections, thus correcting your vision.
Not only does iDesign give us the ability to correct your eye prescription to a higher accuracy than your glasses and contact lenses, resulting in better vision, but we can now treat more complex and higher prescriptions than ever before.

The entire iLASIK laser eye treatment takes only minutes and patients experience little discomfort during or after the procedure. Both eyes can be treated by iLASIK on the same day.
Anaesthetic drops are applied to numb the eye and a lid holder is put in place to stabilise your eye.
A thin flap is created using a cool laser beam and gently lifted by your surgeon to reveal the inner corneal tissue.
A second laser is then applied for a matter of seconds sending tiny computer controlled pulses of cool laser beams to gently reshape the inner layer of the cornea to correct your vision.
Your surgeon will gently fold back the protective flap securely to its original position where it heals naturally over the following few days. The healing process begins immediately and most patients will see immediate results.
LASEK eye surgery is an alternative treatment to iLASIK comprising only one laser to correct your vision, after the surgeon has temporarily folded aside a thin layer of cells to allow access to the cornea.
Intraocular lens surgery is a well established treatment that offers the same visual freedom as laser eye surgery with the additional benefit of being able to correct age related reading vision.
