Still trying to decide which laser eye surgeon to choose?
Here are 10 things to consider
1. Exceptionally trained eye surgeons
Mr Romesh Angunawela and Ms Laura de Benito-Llopis are Consultant Eye Surgeons specialising in corneal transplant and laser eye surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital. Both completed higher doctorate degrees in research into healing after laser eye surgery and are considered experts in there field. They perform all forms of laser eye surgery including LASIK, LASEK, TransPRK. They are both experts in complex corneal surgery including corneal transplantation, lens surgery and laser eye surgery.
Unlike clinics offering cheap surgery, this is a surgeon led clinic and you'll see your responsible surgeon at every visit from your first to last consultation, and be given a contact number to reach them directly after your surgery.
2. Safety! We don't just do laser eye surgery!
All surgery carries a low risk of complications. Over the last 6 years we have not had any patient lose vision due to laser eye surgery. Over the same period none of our patients has developed an infection.
Unlike some clinics, we don't just offer laser eye surgery. The fact is that not everyone is suitable to have laser eye surgery and some people may get better results with a different technique or shouldn't have surgery at all. The ability to offer alternatives to laser eye surgery means that we don't have to push the safety limits of laser eye surgery. We also offer the VIsian ICL for very high levels of short sight and refractive lens exchange surgery with multifocal lens implants for patients over 50 who want unaided reading and distance vision. This means that you'll be presented with the pros and cons of the various options available for your particular case, rather than just being offered laser eye surgery.
Your care remains the responsibility of Mr Angunawela and Ms de Benito at every visit.
3. Cutting edge laser eye surgery technology
Moorfields Eye Hospital is a flagship centre for the latest laser technologies - Intralase IFS 150 femtosecond laser, the Schwind Amaris 1050RS with Smartpulse - allowing us to perform state of the art LASIK and TransPRK/LASEK laser eye surgery in London. Uniquely, unlike many smaller clinics, we upgrade our lasers every 3 years to ensure that we always offer the best laser eye surgery.
4. Cost of laser eye surgery
We don't have confusing tiered pricing or use up selling for 'complex' prescriptions. We have one price for all patients regardless of your prescription or level of astigmatism, and only perform the most technologically advanced treatment - Wavefront Intra-LASIK/LASEK or transPRK. Whats the point of offering anything but the safest and best ?!
We also offer interest free credit for laser eye surgery.
5. The fastest, most accurate laser eye surgery
The IFS 150 and the Schwind Amaris 1050RS are the fastest lasers available. The IFS 150 makes a LASIK flap in just 14 seconds, whilst the Amaris corrects even high levels of short or long sight in a matter of seconds.
Subtle eye movements occur without your knowledge and when you breath. The 7 dimensional eye tracker on the Schwind Amaris 1050RS has the most advanced eye tracker and measures your eye position over a 1000 times each second. It can adjust the laser path in one three thousands of a second to compensate for even the most subtle movement. It even predicts where your eye will move to next. Amazing technology!
6. Laser eye surgery corrects astigmatism
Astigmatism treatment during laser eye surgery with the Schwind Amaris laser is highly accurate and compensates for rotation of the eye that occurs as the patient lies down, accurately delivering laser pulses on the axis of astigmatism by using state-of-the-art iris registration technology.
7. Pioneering no touch laser eye surgery in London
Nervous about LASIK laser eye surgery? We have pioneered TransPRK no touch surface laser eye surgery in London. TransPRK is an alternative to LASEK and is only available with the Schwind Amaris laser. No instruments touch the eye during this procedure. No touch, no flap, but the same great results as LASIK.
8. Excellent laser eye surgery results
Our results are second to none. We are governed by Care Quality Commission standards for clinical governance and regularly audit our results to ensure that our patients get the safest and best possible standard of care. Read our testimonials.
9. The leading eye hospital in the world
Moorfields Eye Hospital is over 200 years old and the leading eye hospital in the world. We are the biggest eye hospital in Europe and have an international reputation for innovation and excellence in healthcare. The hospital offers a wealth of expertise and experience.
Lasik laser eye surgery has been performed at Moorfields in London since 1992 and we're the most established and longest running laser eye clinic in the UK and certainly in London. Moorfields has a world renowned reputation and it is no coincidence that patients seek our help when things go wrong elsewhere.
