How to Book a Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

Before booking your consultation appointment, we need to establish your suitability for laser eye treatment. Your personal assessment* is free.

Free Personal Assessment

Call our Customer Care Team today on 0800 093 1110, who will discuss your current vision and visual requirements with you. Alternatively use the Call Me Now button and we will call at a time that is convenient for you.

Please have your eyesight prescription to hand.

If your personal assessment confirms you are in range for laser eye surgery, we can go ahead and book your consultation appointment.

Most of our Customer Care Team have had laser eye treatment with Optimax so will also be able to answer any questions you may have and help you learn more about our life-changing vision correction treatments.

Standby Bookings

Due to appointment cancellations at short notice, we are sometimes able to offer standby bookings. If you can attend your consultation and laser eye surgery appointments at short notice (three days) call our Customer Care Team on
0800 093 1110 or check the availability now or use the Call Me Now button.

Contact Lens Removal

Standby appointments are not practical for contact lens wearers, as these need to be removed for certain periods prior to attending your consultation and laser eye surgery appointments. The required removal period is one day for soft/disposable lenses, three weeks for hard/gas permeable and one week for soft toric lenses.

Time off Work

You will need to take three or four days off work after having LASEK laser eye surgery and about two days if you have LASIK eye surgery.


Whether you have LASEK or LASIK treatment, you should refrain from driving until you are confident your eyesight has recovered and you have been advised that it is safe to do so.

Getting Home

We strongly recommend that you arrange for a friend or relative to accompany you home after both your consultation and laser eye treatment.

*Please note that the suitability assessment is not a doctor's consultation.
