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 Medical Council.
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.
