Centre for Sight’s medical director Sheraz Daya popularised and introduced Lasik into the UK in 1995. He also in 2004 introduced the Intralase femtosecond laser which eliminated the need for blades for flap creation. The procedure IntraLASIK- is now the gold standard for Lasik. Laser vision correction at Centre for Sight is practiced with an obsessive attention to detail with absolutely no compromise. Laser eye surgery is NOT a commodity, it is a surgical procedure. Sadly many are enticed by pricing, "offers" and deals, rather than the surgeons experience and expertise.

Not all laser eye centres are the same and be aware Laser Eye Surgery is NOT REGULATED, so make sure that you make the right choice.

LASIK versus IntraLASIK

LaConventional LASIK surgery was first performed over twenty years ago using a small oscillating blade called a microkeratome to cut the thin flap at the front of the eye, which is part of the laser procedure. Then, in 2004, The Centre For Sight introduced a significant development in laser eye surgery called Intralase, a laser which eliminated the blade, providing an improvement in recovery time. Other benefits of using Intralase include:

  • Safety -  As a blade free procedure it eliminates the risk of blade and mechanical device related complications. Disposable devices are used for each eye, further improving safety.
  • Better outcomes -  Demonstrated at Centre for Sight as well as in peer-reviewed literature, IntraLASIK recipients consistently obtain better levels of vision.
  • Wider range of candidates - Substantially higher levels of accuracy allow a larger number of patients, such as those with thin or misshapen corneas previously unsuitable for conventional LASIK to be treated.
  • Reduced risk of dry eye - More accurate flap creation, avoiding deep nerve bundles and considerably reducing the risk, severity and recovery time of dry eye.
  • Lower enhancement rates - At Centre for Sight IntraLASIK enhancement rates are exceptionally low at 1% overall.

Accuracy of Laser Eye Surgery

Lasers work at incredibly accurate levels. To give you an idea, they can treat to the accuracy of 25/1000 of a millimetre, that is half the width of a human hair - very small. At Centre for Sight, surgeons specifically tailor laser treatments to each eye uniquely microscopically altering shape of your cornea to not just correct but enhance your vision.

Experience - Centre for Sight

Now over 20 years old, Laser eye surgery has been revolutionary for many. Centre for Sight surgeons have performed laser eye surgery since 1990 and introduced Lasik and Intralase Lasik (Intralasik) to the UK. Besides being the longest provider of Lasik in the UK, Centre for Sight has many other differentiating factors:

  • Every evaluation is performed directly by a Surgeon- this is the most important aspect of care and the key to our success. Only a surgeon will be able to evaluate the eye from a surgical perspective, taking into consideration all possibilities. Anything less is a compromise. Furthermore the level of expertise is very high and all surgeons at our Centre are fellowship-trained (super-speciality trained) in Cornea and Refractive Surgery.

’Every evaluation is performed personally by a surgeon’

  • IntraLasik Laser eye surgery using the Intralase femtosecond laser was introduced to the UK by Centre for Sight in 2004. Uncompromising and safer, ALL Lasik patients at Centre for Sight undergo surgery with Intralase. While there are many sub-types of laser eye surgery offered (PRK LASEK, LASIK), the choice of procedure will be made by our surgeons in discussion with you and after in-depth investigation and consultation taking into consideration your eyesight, eye health, correction as well as occupation, lifestyle and interests. We look after you as well as your eyes!
  • Surgeons to other eye Surgeons! Eye surgeons, Opticians and Doctors regularly bring their family or themselves for treatment at Centre for Sight, some travelling internationally. This is the ultimate attestation of excellence a centre can have.
  • Centre for Sight has an international reputation for repairing complications of laser eye surgery from other centres. Don’t take our word for it, search online and you will find ample evidence. Best to undergo eye care by experts in the business.
