What Does the Clinic Have to Offer?
Centre For Sight is 20 years old and their surgeons have performed laser surgery since 1990. So with that piece of knowledge, it may well be worth putting them on your list if you are currently considering laser eye surgery.
Centre For Sight offer a varied range of laser eye surgery and correction procedures and their staff will make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Refreshments, internet access and reading material will all be available to you and don’t hesitate to let them know beforehand if you have any special needs. Your consultation may take from 1-3 hours as they are also extremely thorough.
At Centre For Sight you will receive surgeon-led care from the first consultation through to your aftercare, with each evaluation performed directly by a surgeon. Centre For Sight offers 24/7 availability for patients in case of emergency and their surgeons are specially trained in corneal and refractive surgery.
Correction procedures are available for short-sight, far-sight, astigmatism and presbyopia (the need for reading glasses), cataracts and corneal defects.
IntraLASIK was introduced to the UK by the Centre For Sight in 2004. It works with computer controlled precision and accuracy, precision flaps and no complications from blades. Suitable for short and long-sight, it can also treat astigmatism.
Supracor is a highly sophisticated procedure that enables near, intermediate and distant vision correction.
LASEK and PRK
These procedures are only performed in exceptional circumstances. Centre For Sight do not recommend these treatments because of pain, risk of haze and overall patient satisfaction.
Again, Epi-LASIK is only performed in exceptional circumstances due to the risk of discomfort.
