“10+ Years on and still as good as day one !”

Written on: 08/01/2014 by Alitone (7 reviews written)

Having read some of the recent negative Reviews I felt its worth completing a review for treatment done in 2001 in Newcastle upon Tyne Ulralase near the High Level bridge.. Since having lasik treatment in 2001 I have never looked back as ive saved a fortune in not needing glasses Or contact lenses and the expence of both. £ 200 a year !! I know its a long time ago and I was 51 when I had Lasik and now aged 63 the sight is just as good as the day it was done. Since then probably, technology… Read Full Review

“They only want your money - please read this!!”

Written on: 03/12/2013

I had lasek in 2010 following a convincing consultation & promises that this would change my life etc etc. Since the procedure i have needed 10 emergency procedures, hospitalized for 5 days, nearly lost sight in right eye & been told that i will be on medication for the rest of my life. I am currently being looked after by the royal Glamorgan hospital, who have been like modern day angels. I owe so much to them considering a so called reputable company (in my opinion) botched up & now effected… Read Full Review

“DO NOT TRUST THEM-READ THIS BEFORE BOOKING”

Written on: 25/11/2013

Had surgery year and a half ago, this procedure did not work. Despite there excellent sales pitch that to prevent any problems you were covered for life, this is not the case. They have been taken over by Optimax and surprise they now have removed there aftercare service. Eventhough when you ring it is still answered as Ultralase it is now Ultralase Eye Clinics. Directors must be sitting pretty in there big houses whilst the mere mortals are stuffed paying off thousands for something that hasnt… Read Full Review

“I so regret having treatment.”

Written on: 08/09/2013 by Tatti007 (4 reviews written)

I had Vue+ which is a procedure to remove the need for reading glasses. It didn't work for me and left me with an unpleasant haze and after more than a year of being told it would improve I had the lens removed. My sight has deteriorated and I believe this is due to the invasive nature of the procedures. It is very hard to get a satisfactory response from them when things go wrong and I have spent thousands of pounds, lost work from constant appointments and my sight is now worse than… Read Full Review

“Freedom from glasses”

Written on: 26/08/2013

I had laser surgery on June the 8th 2013. It is the best thing I have ever spent my money on. I had considered this for a few years. I had done a lot of research, at the end of the day there is a risk in any medical procedure. I looked at optical express and ultra lase. One day in July I got home from work to find an offer from ultra lase to do my eyes ultra Elite for £2000. I was on the phone instantly. My mind was made up to do this. This was a saving of over £2000 pounds. I no that… Read Full Review

just to let you know the life time guarantee is no longer valid !! I had mine done eighteen months ago, have problems now and thats it tough luck, your on your own still paying off the original cost. Cannot afford to start the procedure again.

Sorry I don't agree with you on this. When I had my eyes done ultralase had been taken over by optimax. So I was a new customer. I have read reviews where people were not happy with the service and various problems when people had the eyes done when it was just ultralase. I think it's more to do with this for you. Optimax had not taken over by then when you had it done. It's not right that it is not valid for you. But I assure you I have the life time guarantee. Let's hope you get your problems sorted out. But if I was in your position I would take no for an answer.

“Awful - would not recommend”

Written on: 21/07/2013 by nashville2002 (1 review written)

Waited 28 days so far for a response as to why despite numerous phone calls and e-mails. To build yourself up for an operation to be cancelled just before is unacceptable. I have been very polite asking why and waiting but they do not seem interested in giving any response. I am passed from pillar to post. I would not recommend. They also originally quoted me £1000 more than my final price. It seems it has a double glaze sales approach to the price… Read Full Review

“Shockingly bad!”

Written on: 08/07/2013 by NickyRe (1 review written)

I had laser surgery about 10 years ago with Ultralase in Guildford and since I was pleased with the treatment and result I returned to them this year when I wanted to have treatement for age onset long sightendness. On consultation I was persuaded that IOL rather than mono-vision would be the best treatment for me. A few weeks later I plucked up the courage to book the op which was to take place in Harley Street. As the eyes have to be done at least one week apart and they recommend that you… Read Full Review

Sounds about right for Ultralase. I had ICL surgery in Dec2011 and need top up laser treatment. Since the merger with Optimax in Dec 2012 I have now been told I am no longer suitable. I'm getting a second opinion and I then intend to take this further. I feel very let down by Ultralase and Optimax for a terrible after care service.

“Wavefront Lasik at ultralase guildford”

Written on: 14/06/2013 by daisyjo (1 review written)

Yesterday morning, I woke as usual, fumbled for my glasses and prepared for my big day! Today I sit here typing less than 24 since my operation with 20:20 vision- truely lifechanging!!! I had my initial consultation in Optimax Brighton, but the dates they had for surgery were not suitable, so opted for my next most local clinic Ultralase Guildford. When I arrived I was greated by friendly staff who showed me to the waiting room offering tea/coffee, and waited in anticipation. After a couple… Read Full Review

I'm glad you got good results I had laser surgery not long ago and got 20:20 vision. I guess we are lucky. Seem to be some negative reviews with unhappy results.

hmm, shame this cannot be reviewed and regraded, since having the surgery, I now suffer exceptional dry eyes and night vision is a disaster with halos everywhere, but by far the biggest disappointment, is that my vision is not correct. measuring between -0.25 and -0.5, I now have to wait to see what happens next....

“Do not provide laser top up after IOL”

Written on: 03/05/2013 by Vickhg123 (1 review written)

Very disappointed by the utter lack of after care service. I had my surgery in Liverpool Dec 2011. Thought 2012 went for all follow up appointments and was told that as my prescription was now small I would be able to have top up laser to sharpen up the blurred distant vision I have. I had IOL because my cornea are thin and I have RA. Howerever as I have said after my surgery I was repeatedly told I could have top up laser surgery. After months of being messed around I was booked to attend… Read Full Review

“LASIK wavefront only yesterday!!! Thrilled!!”

Written on: 18/04/2013 by Gilly.pea (1 review written)

After 20 years of wearing glasses I finally decided to get my eyes lasered. I went to three free consultations at optical express, Potomac and ultralase. Ultralase seemed far superior in terms of after are and after a few weeks I booked. The op was yesterday at 2pm and by 4pm my sight was tested and i had 20/20 vision already. By 7pm after some discomfort and blurred vision, I could see. Well I slept well in my eye shields and woke this morning to amazingly clear vision, vision I did not think… Read Full Review

“Long term damage”

Written on: 07/11/2012

I had Ultralase laser surgery on my right eye approximately 11 years after I had Lasik surgery in both eyes at Boots. My Ultralase surgeon decided not to make the initial circular incision by laser but instead pushed the surface to one side after applying an alcohol solution. Almost straight away I noticed that I was getting distorted vision in my right eye. I assumed that this was due to astigmatism and the Ultralase follow-up checks appeared to confirm this. As I was not happy with my vision… Read Full Review

“Life changing experience - just do it.”

Written on: 24/10/2012

Having your eyes lasered is more than just getting good eyesight again, it's total freedom. You can just get up and get on with your day, you can just put your sunglasses on without thinking about it, just go swimming or do some other sport, do your hair and make up without the need for glasses or contacts, go away for the weekend without the fear of forgetting or losing your contacts, just get on with life without the niggly hurdle of poor eyesight. You feel younger and more awake too (I… Read Full Review

“Glad I ve done it but somethings to be aware of”

Written on: 23/10/2012 by Shell85Uk (1 review written)

I had my eyes laserd a week and a half a go at ultralse, tottenham court road. I was short sighted -3.25 in both eyes. I was told I could have any procedure so I went for the best ultra elite LASIK. £2200 per eye. The staff were friendly and helpful but felt as if I was on an conveyer belt that day. One in one out. The operation its self for me was pretty intense the right eye went well but while the laser was cutting my left eye the suction came off my eye ball which then meant the machine… Read Full Review

“Excellent ”

Written on: 04/10/2012 by cdoug67 (1 review written)

Great from start to finish. Staff - from reception to optician to surgeon - were excellent. The treatment was quick, painless and no worse than a minor dentist's appointment. The improvement in my eyesight was immediate and kept improving for a week afterwards - although I could see very well within about 12 hours. My eye sight tested better than 20:20, with no further need for correction, within a week, and has remained that way for the two years since the procedure. As everyone says, I wish… Read Full Review

I was so nervous but I could not beleive how easy and painless it was and how quickly I could see withuout my glasses.Because I only had one eye lasered it took about 6 months before my eyes equialised but I really wish I had done it years ago especially as you can now pay for the treatment over a couple of years interest free I just could not recomend Ultralase enough they gave me so much confidence and assurance before I had my eyes done and even after 2 years they are sending me a reminder… Read Full Review

“Laser Eye Surgery at Ultralase, Derryvolgie Avenue,...”

Written on: 19/09/2012 by HelenAnn5007 (1 review written)

My experience of LASIK with Dr Gerry Kervick at the All Clear Eye Laser Clinic on Derryvolgie Avenue in Belfast was fantastic; it's now two years since my procedure and I can't believe how my life has changed for the better since leaving glasses behind. I love waking up and being able to see first thing in the morning. I love leaving the house and not having to run around looking for my glasses. I love not worrying about wearing mascara and contacts together incase I lose a contact lens on a… Read Full Review

“Should have done it sooner”

Written on: 08/09/2012

I had been short sighted for over 25 yrs and wore glasses full time and contacts for sport. After having deliberated over having surgery for many years, I met a friend who I had not seen for some time and noticed that he was not wearing his glasses. I complimented him on the difference this made and he informed me he had laser surgery through Ultralase and advised that a number of his work colleagues had also been for surgery or were in the middle of consultations with the same clinic. Within… Read Full Review

“Best thing I have ever done!”

Written on: 06/09/2012 by Missieminx (1 review written)

I cannot thank Ultralase enough after giving me freedom from my glasses for the first time in donkeys years! I would say they are a little more expensive than some of the other high street clinics but you def get what you pay for. A friend of mine did however recommend a website where you can get 10% of ultralase laser eye surgery. The website was called treatmentsaver.com and all i had to do was book a consultation through that website. It was free to use and I didnt have to leave credit card… Read Full Review
