CAN WE FIND A CHEAPER PROVIDER OF LASER SURGERY?
Yes, you can….but beware…
Most of the big high street chains employ non-consultant staff
to perform laser surgery. Many also employ “flying doctors” from
overseas. Check if your surgeon
has a permanent NHS consultant appointment and
is on the Specialist (not general) register of the General
In many cheaper centres, all the pre-operative assessment and
planning is performed by a non-medical technician. The patient is
seen by the operating surgeon only on the day of surgery. After
this all post-operative care is delegated to non-medical staff.
Almost all the famous high street chains do not have in-patient
facilities for the management of complications. Most problems with
refractive surgery arise due to poor patient selection (due to
limited involvement of a senior ophthalmologist in the
pre-operative assessment) or poor post-operative care (due to lack
of infrastructure) and not the surgical procedure itself.
Many centres will offer standard (not wave front guided)
treatment at a cheaper price. At Duchy Hospital, we have decided to
offer only the top-op-the-range treatment at a fixed price.
At Duchy Hospital, we take pride in offering only the highest
quality service with extensive pre-treatment counselling and
assessment, emergency post-op cover and 12 month follow-up included
in the price. You will also be given the consultant’s personal
contact number after the procedure so there will be no need to
contact your GP, Outpatients or Casualty department should you have
a problem post operatively.
