I saw an online advert by a laser eye surgery company that claimed that I could win free laser eye surgery if I gave them my details. Is this true?

Yes, you can win free laser eye surgery. There is one UK laser eye clinic that offers a regular free prize draw offering a lucky winner the chance to obtain their laser eye surgery free of charge.

To participate in Optical Express’s competition which is drawn on the second Friday of each month, participants must submit their details via a form on the Optical Express website and attend a free consultation at their nearest branch to assess their suitability for laser eye surgery. The prize must be claimed within 28 days of notification and surgery must be undertaken within three months of winning.

Close to the UK is Optilase, Ireland’s leading laser eye surgery provider, which operates a prize draw for free laser eye surgery along similar lines. Again, prospective clients are required to submit their details and undergo an assessment of suitability for laser eye surgery.

Other opportunities to win free laser eye surgery may be presented by different UK clinics from time to time. Visualase, for example, ran a prize draw in 2011. Newspapers and magazines occasionally offer free laser eye surgery as a competition prize. Optical Express provides details and potted case histories of its competition winners on the website.
