What eye treatments do you offer?

You can find out about all the different types of procedure we offer on our treatments page.

What eye treatments do you offer?

This is one of our most common enquiries. It’s important to remember that going with the cheapest laser eye treatment you can find is not necessarily what’s going to be best for your eyes, or give you the best results or aftercare. We believe in being transparent about the cost of laser eye surgery, so we’ve outlined everything on our pricing page. Generally speaking, laser eye treatment costs £1,450 for one eye, or £2,900 for both.

Will the treatment hurt?

Patient care is at the heart of everything we do, and at your consultation you’ll get the chance to meet your surgeon and talk through any concerns. Generally all our treatments are pain-free, although depending what type of treatment you have, you may experience some discomfort during or following your procedure.

How do I know it’s safe?

Combined, our experienced surgeons carry out approximately 2,000 eye procedures every year. In total they have carried out over 20,000 eye surgeries between them, so you can be sure you are in safe hands.
We’re also the only laser eye centre in Scotland to be fully regulated by Health Improvement Scotland’s Healthcare Environment Inspectorate (HIS HEI), and our surgeons are regulated and revalidated by the General Medical Council. Find out more about us.

Can I get my treatment for free on the NHS?

Not all the treatments we offer are available on the NHS, and for those that are, waiting times can be long. With Laser Vision Scotland you’ll enjoy bespoke and efficient service, with the highest level of care and appointments that fit into your other commitments.

Can I have an appointment at the weekend?

Yes, we offer appointment at Spire Shawfair Park Hospital on Saturdays mornings for free diagnostic consultations and full consultant initial consultations.

I live abroad and would like laser eye surgery when I return to Scotland for a holiday. Can this be arranged?

Yes, we can arrange diagnostic consultations and your full consultant consultation on the same day. If you are suitable for surgery then we can schedule treatment shortly after. If you are planning to fly shortly after eye surgery, please always let your consultant know as there may be a delay before doing so.

Is there anything I should do to prepare for my diagnostic consultation?

Yes, soft contact lenses ideally shouldn’t be worn for one week before. (or two weeks for gas permeable contact lenses). We can still carry out your consultation if they haven’t been removed but if you decided to proceed to surgery then we would need to repeat the diagnostics. This can easily be arranged.
