Optegra is the UK’s largest group of dedicated private ophthalmic hospitals that tend to a wide range of eye conditions. Founded with the aim to provide world-class eye care and services in the UK, it is now a leading provider of eye treatments with its advanced technology and reputable surgeons.
Optegra was initially established in Guildford, Surrey and has now expanded to 9 hospitals and clinics throughout the UK including Birmingham, London, Manchester, Hampshire and Yorkshire. They also have an international network in Germany, Czech Republic, Poland and China.
Optegra’s Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons are all NHS trained fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. Many also take part in the training and development of new eye surgeons, and have contributed to the industry through the research, development and practice of new eye treatments and techniques.
Treatments and Technology
Optegra provides a wide range of eye care solutions and surgical procedures tailored exactly to every patient’s specific eye condition. It has a dedicated, nonprofit research division, Optegra Eye Sciences, which continually researches different ways Optegra can bring together advances in technology and surgical procedures to provide better treatments for its patients. Optegra is the first national eye care group to offer the LENSAR™ femtosecond laser technology in all of its UK hospitals.
Optegra offers ReLEx® SMILE, LASIK and LASEK procedures to treat correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. ReLEx® SMILE is a minimally invasive, bladeless form of keyhole laser eye surgery, offering a great alternative to LASEK and LASIK treatment.
Apart from these, it also offers the Clarivu package. Clarivu (RLE – refractive lens exchange) is an individually tailored and consultant-led lens replacement procedure which can eliminate or reduce dependence on glasses as well as prevent or remove cataracts. Optegra also offers the phakic implantable contact lens (ICL), which is a tiny, soft lens placed between the natural lens of the eye and the iris, or between the iris and the cornea.
Optegra’s surgeons also treat other eye conditions such as cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinal conditions and glaucoma.
Optegra’s hospitals have consistently received positive reviews from their patients who commend the surgeons for their exemplary work and the staff for their friendliness. Optegra offers a comprehensive aftercare programme with a dedicated out of hours number for all patients.
Unlike many clinics, Optegra charges fixed price for all its treatments laser eye surgery no matter what your prescription is. 0% finance with no deposit is available for 12 or 24 months, and interest bearing finance allows you to spread the payments over 36 or 48 months.
LASIK and LASEK laser eye surgery treatments treatments with Wavefront and Blade free technology are all charged at the same fixed price and every refractive treatment comes with a free consultation first where you can meet your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and discuss your personalised treatment plan before committing to any treatment.
