Our World Leading Technology Advanced CustomVue WaveFront At Optilase, we believe in providing you with the world’s most advanced technology. We offer two types of procedures: Standard and Advanced CustomVue WaveFront.

What is Advanced CustomVue WaveFront? Just like a fingerprint, your vision is unique to you. Advanced CustomVue WaveFront corrects vision according to the individual imperfections of your eyes. This means that each laser treatment is specific to you. This technology was originally developed for use in high powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. Advanced CustomVue WaveFront uses an exceptionally advanced scanner called the WaveScan which generates an accurate map of how light passes through the eye. This map, and the measurements obtained are 25 times more accurate than measurements obtained during a routine sight test. It provides measurements of your prescription but also the natural imperfections (higher order aberrations) unique to each of your eyes.

IntraLase IFS150™ What is IntraLase?

Benefits of Advanced CustomVue WaveFront •

Results in measure­ments 25 times more precise than stand­ard treatments

Corrects vision according to the individual imperfections of your eyes

Broadest

FDA-approved,

The IntraLase method is the most advanced and ac­ curate manner in which to create the flap during your LASIK procedure. This blade-free method uses Femtosecond (quadrillionth of a second) pulses of laser to cre­ ate the flap. The IntraLase method delivers outstanding results and it has been shown to improve outcomes for more patients.

customised

WaveFront-guided treatments available today for individuals with myopia and hyperopia with or without astigmatism

Is it right for me?

Benefits of IntraLase •

Blade-free treatment that delivers superior results and accuracy

Faster healing and recov­ery rates than the traditional microkerato­me procedure

Improves precision and out­comes of LASIK

Reduces flap related complications and induced higher order aberrations

IntraLase delivers outstanding results. It has been shown to improve outcomes for more patients. Patients generally experience faster recovery, fewer LASIK flaprelated complications and fewer induced higher order aberrations (which may contribute to visual disturbances such as glare and halos, particularly at night time).

These aberrations have a significant impact on vision and have been linked to glare and halos, particularly at night-time. Benefits of this technology include better quality night vision than previously possible. In fact, since WaveFront technology allows us to correct individual imperfections, it has the potential to correct vision to an even better level than possible with glasses or contact lenses.

Your Laser Eye Surgery Journey How is the laser treatment performed?

Initial Free Consultation •

On your first visit you will meet with your Laser Optometrist who will carry out detailed tests and scans on your eyes to assess your suitability for laser eye surgery Your Laser Optometrist will explain the procedures involved and answer any questions you may have The assessment will take approximately 1 hour and can be arranged for a time convenient to you If deemed suitable, a pre-operative consultation with your Surgeon can be booked

• • •

LASIK LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) or IK for short, is the most frequently performed laser procedure in the world. The key benefits of the LASIK procedure are a rapid recovery time, usually within 48 hours and little or no post operative discomfort.

Consultation with your Surgeon • •

Your Surgeon will carry out further eye examinations and give final approval for surgery Your Surgeon will explain your treatment in more technical detail, answer any additional questions you may have and talk you through what to expect on the day of treatment Afterwards, our clinic administration team will take you through the nec­essary paperwork, payment details and confirm your treatment date and time

Anaesthetic drops are applied, which have the effect of numbing your eye.

A small flap is created on the surface of the cornea using blade free IntraLase technology or a precision surgical instrument called a microkeratome.

The laser is then applied to the underlying surface to reshape your cornea and correct your prescription.

Your Surgeon then places the flap back down and your eye begins to heal.

LASEK The Day of your Laser Treatment •

You will be in the care of our surgery team, including your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Surgery Nurses, Laser Technician and Support Staff We ask you to bring a friend or family member to accompany you The laser treatment takes approximately 7 minutes per eye. The laser is used for between 5 and 30 seconds After treatment, you will relax while our Nurses explain our aftercare programme You will receive a post-operative information pack which includes our 24 hour patient care helpline number, all necessary eye drops and a schedule of when to take them

• • • •

Post-Operative Care and Lifetime Care Guarantee •

As part of our continued commitment to your care, we provide you with a comprehensive aftercare programme for a year after your treatment This includes on average 6 post-op visits to the clinic Each appoint­ment should take no longer than twenty minutes After you are discharged from our aftercare programme you should require no further visits however our doors are always open and you are welcome to visit us any time for further check-ups or if you have any concerns or questions

LASEK (Laser-Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratectomy) or EK for short, is a well established method of preparing the surface of the eye for laser eye surgery in patients for whom LASIK is not recommended. The decision as to which procedure is best for you will be made in consultation with your Laser Optometrist and Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon.

Anaesthetic drops are applied, which have the effect of numbing your eye.

The surface layer of cells (Epithelium) of your eye is softened using an Ethanol solution and gently moved aside.

The laser is then applied to the underlying surface to reshape your cornea and correct your prescription.

A contact lens is put in place over your cornea for a period of five days to provide comfort and protection to the surface as it heals.

Our Testimonials - Patients Success Stories

Maura Flynn

Best thing I ever did for myself. Can't believe the difference. I can see things so far away that I couldn't even see before. Excellent service. Well worth the money.

Ross Callanan

I am absolutely delighted with my vision since the correction. It was a very simple painfree procedure with excellent aftercare. I would highly recommend laser eye surgery with Optilase.

Ross Hedderman

I'm totally satisfied with the service, care and treatment I received at Optilase. The staff, from the receptionists to the Surgeons were professional and friendly. The surgery was not at all as scary or unpleasant as I had feared. I have no regrets whatsoever with choosing Optilase.

“ Ann Redmond

The staff at Optilase are fantastic. The care before and during the procedure is fantastic and the aftercare is superb. They are always available at the end of the phone for any queries and I would highly recommend them.

Andre Kovalenko

I have always had very bad vision and this put constraints on my daily activities but after I got the Advanced WavefFront I now have over 20/20 vision and not having to wear glasses or lenses is worth every penny.

“ Lisa Ashe

I had a very positive experience here at Optilase. I was extremely pleased with the staff and their level of professionalism. I am thrilled with the results and would definitely recommend Optilase to anyone interested in laser eye surgery.

Gary Pierce

Many thanks to Optilase. Between the friendly, helpful staff and efficiency of the surgery, and genuine aftercare services, I was well looked after from the moment I walked in the door. No problems at all; I can't believe I didn't do it sooner!

Niamh Connolly

I found the whole experience amazing. I feel I can see through HD eyes. Money so well spent. The experience with Optilase was so comfortable and all staff made me feel so at ease. I would definitely recommend laser eye surgery with Optilase.

Mark Gaynor

I chose Optilase because they offered the best value along with a professional and friendly service. I had the Lasek procedure due to having a high prescription and relatively thin cornea. The procedure itself was very quick and painless. The results speak for themselves, better that 20/20 vision and able to play contact sports. I have no hesitation in recommending Optilase to anyone considering laser eye surgery.

Nora McMahon

I am delighted with the results of the laser eye surgery - should have done it years ago! The care from Optilase before, after and during the whole process has been exceptional and, apart from a few pre-op nerves, everything has been fine since. I would definitely recommend Optilase to anybody considering surgery.

Optilase Cork Optilase and Sightsavers Partnership Sightsavers works tirelessly to help cure people who have reversible eye conditions as well as prevent people from becoming needlessly blind. On April 1st 2011, Optilase signed a partnership agreement with Sightsavers, whereby Optilase will contribute funds and expertise to Sightsavers for three years, specifically to help Sightsavers construct an eye department at Nampula Central Hospital in Nampula, Mozambique and to help train their local eye care experts and volunteers. The aim of Sightsavers’ programme in Nampula is to strengthen the capacity of the Central Hospital so that it can deliver the full range of eye care services to treat the 1.3 million people currently affected by blindness and visual impairment in Nampula Province and to meet the eye care needs of the people living in the surrounding Province. To do this, Sightsavers needs two things: funding to help build the eye department at the hospital and skills training for the various levels of ophthalmic personnel working within the project. The current eye care centre is severely overcrowded and unable to cope with the large numbers wishing to receive cataract surgery, other eye surgery and refractive services.

How can you get involved? We are keen to do our part and we are encouraging people to get behind the Sightsavers initiative. You can do that by donating in any of our clinics or logging onto www.sightsavers.ie. For more information on the Sightsavers partnership, you can email info@optilase.com.
