(British answers please) Optical Laser Treatment within Florida,Orlando?

Im British, and was wondering if anyone has had laser eye treatment surrounded by Orlando? And roughly how much did it cost and did everything run smoothly. Did you have to go for an assessment before the treatment?

Hi,

You cannot simply fly to the US and own treatment done within a few hours of your consult. With the current state of the exchange rate it is going to be cheaper to perform treatment here anyway. Even if you have have treatment in the US, who is going to perform your post-op checkup's at 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months etc or sooner if there is a problem? The company I work for have a number of people who have be treated elsewhere - we charge in the region of lb150 for a 15 min appointment - which is quite typical of the industry. Then there are the problems nearly obtaining your medical data from the UK in direct to perform treatment, getting your treatment data back to the UK so that you can be followed up correctly etc etc. I would deem hard about this before hold treatment done while you are on holiday - this is not the same as going out and getting a tattoo.

I'd reccomend that you have a look at the following website: www.lasik-eyes.co.uk It contains information on all the laser eye surgery providers within the UK as well as plenty of information from and for people like yourself who are something like to engage in treatment.

If you do one thing, research your treatment markedly well. This is not a very well regulated industry nor is this 'like going to the dentist'. Once you own treatment done, you cannot reverse it.

Be weary of promises to improve your vision (this is impractical with laser) with various fancy sounding technique (with the added increase in cost). Often you are quoted a particular price and treatment only for the surgeon to suggest a better/more suitable (and much more expensive) form of treatment 5 minutes previously you are due to have laser.

You certainly want to have treatment done near the people/company that you trust the most. The above website has good information, read some of the forums about surgeons / companies etc and maybe ask people on the site for further information about the particular individuals that are to pass out your treatment.

Hope this helps
